Summer make up items have been hitting the store these few weeks and I must say I am not tempted to buy most of the items. However Chanel’s eye pencil in Pêche Cuivré seems to be a good thing to pick up. I have read few positive reviews about this and thought I should grab this and give it a try.
As you can see in the picture above, it’s not too light in color but I am sure it would still brighten up the eye. I don’t have anything like this in my stash so I don’t have anything to compare with Pêche Cuivré. What I love about this eye pencil is that this is creamy. It’s very easy to use, well pigmented and suits my skin tone very well. I think this is going to be a good pick for girls who wants to have an eye pencil for inner corner that’s not too much. The color won’t look too obvious for daily make up, but it will make your eyes look bigger.
I have taken a picture with me using Pêche Cuivré;
Eye make up worn in the picture:
I applied a thick amount of NYX jumbo eye pencil in Black Bean (reviewed here) all around my eyelid. I topped it again of MAC in Carbon (here). And to soften the look, I applied beige color from the YSL Pure Chromatic (here). The falsies I am using was just a random falsies I got from night market in Taipei. To finish the eye look, I applied Pêche Cuivré to my inner corner.
My final thought on this product:
I am liking this product because of it’s quality. I love creamy eye pencil and I hate dry pencil. Creamy eye pencil are very easy to wear and not irritating to apply on. Although this might smudge a little bit, I don’t have any problem with it since the color is very light and it won’t ruin my make up.
Cream eyeshadow is my new addiction. They are very well pigmented and long wearing. Giorgio Armani and Chanel have gorgeous collections of cream eyeshadows. However I would still try some other brands that have good cream eye colors. I have heard great reviews from many bloggers about Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color. I love trying out dark color for cream eye shadow to create nice smokey eye look. I grabbed two colors; BK 912 Caviar and WT 901 Mist
WT 901 Mist is a sheer shimmery eyeshadow that will look great when paired with most dark colors. I just love to see those sparkles and glitters whenever I swatch it on my arms. BK 912 Caviar is a deep black cream color that is very well pigmented. This is definitely my favorite black cream shadow as of now!
I fell in love with this eyeshadow as the texture is just amazing. It’s very smooth and silky. It’s very easy to work with; it blends easily and this works as a great base. BK 912 Caviar is something that I love deeply, it’s buttery and smooth. I like to use this color as a base and I top it with other nude shimmering color. It creates a simple but great combination.
Among few cream shadows I have tried, Shiseido’s texture is the closest to The Make Up Store’s. Both have similar feeling and textures. However, I have not tried many colors with The Make Up Store’s so I can’t comment much. Chanel’s Illusion d’Ombre and Giorgio Armani’s Eyes to Kill have a very different textures with them. They aren’t as smooth as Shiseido’s but they have gorgeous glitters inside.
Overall I am impressed with the quality of these cream shadows and would get few more from Shiseido again.

I have been wanting to grab Butter London Trout Pout for a long time but unfortunately it has been sold out since the first time I visited Butter LONDON in Takashimaya. Luckily when I went there few days ago, I spotted Trout Pout and immediately grab it. I don’t want to lose this for the second time! :p
Trout Pout is a peachy pink creme color, no shimmer at all. The application wasn’t smooth at the first coat but everything was good at the second coats. This is great for both spring and summer color. Honestly I feel that the name for this polish is a bit awkward for this color but who cares about the naming when we have a nice color like this!
Looking at my polish stash, I found these 4 that might look similar. I am happy that none of them is a dupe! Nicole by OPI Reach Out seems to be the closest to Trout Pout, however NOPI Reach Out is more towards sheer rather and Trout Pout is a creme.

Summer make up has hit the stores! There were many bronzers that I have been eyeing for these few weeks, however I am glad that I am able to pass few gorgeous bronzers such as Dior Nude Tan, Chanel Sable Beige and Guerlain Emillio Pucci. I am not a heavy user of bronzer thus there’s no need for me to buy a lot of them. However, I can’t avoid buying Burberry’s Summer Glow. Such a pretty and classy packaging and yes it’s a limited edition! Moreover, the color suits my skintone very well. It’s not too dark and can be worn as a highlighter as well. Buying this is like shooting two birds at a time, you’re getting an item that can be used for two functions. This item is retailing at S$90.
As usual, there’s a unique scent in every Burberry’s make up products. I don’t know how to describe the scents but I like it. As you can see, there are 4 colors here. When I want to sculpt my face, I’ll use the two darker color on the left. The color combination provides a dark color that doesn’t look too obvious on my skin. On the other hand, when I want to highlight my face in a more natural way, I’ll swipe my brush on the two lighter colors. On the picture below, I have swatched each color for your reference
As you can see, the two colors on the right are very sheer. I won’t recommend to swipe your brush on this palette entirely if you want to use this as a bronzer (unless you are very very fair). In my opinion, swiping your brush as the two darker color will provide the best shade for asian fair skin tone.
My final conclusion of this product:
The packaging of this product is a standard metal packaging from Burberry (like Burberry’s blusher). It looks elegant, mature and beautiful . The texture is very smooth and silky. This is very easy to be applied on the cheeks and I am loving the finish. It’s not totally matte; it contains micro silver shimmer that gives you the perfect glow. If you are looking for a true bronzer, I don’t think this is for you. It’s less dark than most bronzer thus this won’t really show. But if you are looking for a more natural bronzer, you’ll definitely need this. I find it hard to find a bronzer that doesn’t look too harsh on me and finally Burberry has this product that I need Overall I am very satisfied with this product and loving it.
