Hello hello!

Let’s take a look at Make Up Store’s collection from 2014. They have released few collections for winter 2014, and I have received few items from each of their winter collections to show you!

Let me give you some introduction to the collection,

  • BRAVE is part of Make Up Store winter collections. As the name suggests, BRAVE is meant for us who loves daring look with bold and dark colors. Most of the items mentioned here are part of BRAVE collections.
  • RENAISSANCE is also part of MAKE UP STORE winter collection but it posses more romantic feelings. The idea of RENAISSANCE is to create an angelic look which is perfect for the month of December.
  • NORDIC is inspired by the beauty of aurora in the north and creating a cool icy look for the winter season.

Now let’s take a look at the eyeshadows and glitters,

in the picture below, I have Strong and Crow eyeshadow, and also glitter in Courageous. Strong is a pink eyeshadow leaning towards purple with shimmers. I am using Strong as both eyeshadow and blush. The size of the products makes it easy for me to swirl my cheek brush and apply it on my cheek. Strong is part of Brave collection. Another item from the BRAVE collection is the glitter in courageous. Courageous is a bronzy red glitters to add the dazzle to your look.

Crow is part of NORDIC collection. I like this color for it’s versatility and it’s easy to work with. Crow is described as slate grey shade. I would personally say that it’s a mixture of grey and blue. Pigmentation of Crow is decent and easy to blend with. This color is easy to apply and can be worn on it’s own, I have used this as an eyeliner color too.

The eyeshadows and the glitter is retailing at $27 each.

I also received two lip products to show you. In the picture below, you can see MATT 406. It has matte finish and the color is a red wine. One thing that attracts me from this is that although it provides matte finish, it doesn’t make my lip feels dry. It’s moisturising and the color stays for long hours. Matt contains avocado oil which gives a slightly oily surface that protects your lips against the environment and keeps your lips hydrated. This matte lipstick is recommended for you who has dry and sensitive skin. MATT 406 is retailing for S$29.

Below here I also have a lip gloss and a nail polish that matches very well. Gritty lipgloss and Elizabeth Nail Polish is part of BRAVE collections. Gritty is a blushing shade of deep coral pink with gorgeous multicolored shimmers as you can see in the picture above. This lipgloss matches perfectly with the nail polish in Elizabeth. Gritty is retailing for S$35 and Elizabeth is retailing for S$22.

Chanel Reverie Parisienne for Spring 2015 – Tisse Fantasie & Blush Camelia Rose

IMG_4602

Hi lovelies!!

Today I decided to post my thoughts on Chanel Spring 2015 – Reverie Parisienne. I am sure many of you would have read the reviews and looked at the products in real life, but let me share my excitement and to show how happy I am to be able to purchase these :)

IMG_4600

Firstly I picked Chanel Jardin de Chanel Blush Camelia Rose. This blush caught my attention at the first sight. Just look at how pretty the sculpting of the camelia in the pan, I simply can’t resist getting this and make it part of my collection.

There are two pink tones in this blush; one is darker and the other is lighter. The swatch below was taken at home with indirect sunlight, with the darker shade on the left side and the lighter shade in the middle. The shade on the right side the shade when both shades are mixed. I detect a very very slight shimmer in it but it was not captured very well in this picture.

Another item that I picked unexpectedly during my trip to Chanel store is this Les 4 Ombres in Tisse Fantasie. I didn’t plan to get any les 4 ombres but the light khaki shade is simply pretty that I just had to caved in.

Chanel les 4 Ombres in Tisse Fantasie turns out lovely when it is swatched on my arms. I really like how it glides on softly on my arms and the colors shows up nicely. The pigmentation was decent for all these shades, it’s not overly pigmented nor too sheer.

  • Top left – Coral shade with satiny finish
  • Top Right – a shimmery white shade. It’s a little too white for me that I have to think of how to work on this color on my eyes without destroying the whole look on me.
  • Bottom Left – a shimmery khaki green with golden shimmer. This one gotta be my favorite shade from the palette for its beautiful shimmers and versatility.
  • Bottom right – a dark brown with slight red tone and golden shimmers.

IMG_4598

Overall I think the quality of Tisse Fantasie is quite balanced, the pigmentation comes up nicely on my eye lid. I didn’t experience any fallout for most colors but for the khaki shade, I did see some fallouts. Below is my FOTD look with Tisse Fantasie and Chanel Camelia Blush.

Regain Your Youth Skin with The Body Shop Drops of Youth Sleeping Mask!

IMG_4546

Hello again!!

Happy New Year 2015! I am so glad that I am able to come back and to write again. My blog has been silent for few weeks and I miss blogging so much! There are so many things going on in my life now that I didn’t even have the time to read & write blogposts for a while. I hope that I would have more time and energy now to continue writing as frequent as before. Blogging has been part of my life for the past few years, and neglecting this blog for a while has made me miss the blogging community so much. So I shall stop my rambling and start talking about The Body Shop Drops of Youth Sleeping Mask.

The product comes in a glass tube and comes with a spatula. The mask looks thick inside the jar but when you scoop it and apply it onto your skin, you can feel that the texture is not thick at all; in fact, it feels light and it transforms into gel texture. Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask is packed with ingredients extracted from Edelweiss – the flower is able to survive in dry and cold weather in the alps.

Lately I have been obsessed with mask – I went nuts trying so many types of masks. When TBS is launching their mask, I became so excited to try it. I received this product few days ago and went to try it on my face immediately. I applied my night skin care regime (toner – serum – moisturiser) and I add one more layer of TBS Sleeping Mask and went to sleep. The texture feels light upon application and what I like about it is that the scent is not strong at all. So for those of you who are sensitive to strong scent, give this one a try! The next day I can feel that my skin is restored, it feels more hydrated. I am still using this mask daily up till now and I’m looking forward to see more positive result :)

 

The Body Shop recommends a specially designed massage technique to apply this mask. Screen Shot 2015-01-07 at 5.55.59 pm

Other than the Bouncy Sleeping Mask; The Body Shop also launch an addition to its Drop of Youth Range ! Wonderblur is the last step of your beauty routine before make-up. This lightweight blur instantly smoothes skin texture, visibly reducing fine lines and pores for an all-day flawless look.

 

IMG_4551

 

Here’s the swatch of wonderblurYou can see some visible lines on the back of my hand. Then after applying wonderblur on the back of my hand, I can immediately tell the difference! The lines has been blurred and it doesn’t look as visible as before. Wonderblur is meant to be the last step of your skincare routine before you apply your make up. With wonderblur, your make up should be looking more flawless as it creates a smooth canvas for the foundation to glides in smoothly. The picture below is the swatch:

Alright then! This post wraps my first blogpost in 2015, I hope to be able to write more in the future! :)

 

Thanks for reading!

 

Get your glam look with Guerlain Night at the Opera for Holiday 2014

Guerlain unveils an ultra elegant collection this Holiday season, a Night at the Opera. The collection brings us back to a classical era where red and dazzling gold is the hottest make up style. This collection is one of the collection that I look most forward to especially with Guerlain excellent quality and intricate design! Without further adieu, Let’s take a look at the collection!

One of the special items in this collection has got to be Petrouchka Palette for eyes and cheeks. Consisting of 5 eyeshadow colors in a golden tone, and four blushes (two in matte finish and two in pearl finish), this palette would be a perfect item to be collected this season.

For every Guerlain collection, meteorites is the items I have been waiting for. Although I might have more than enough meteorites, but meteorites is such a gorgeous piece that’s hard for me to refuse. This season, Meteorites Perles d’Etoiles has once again won my heart. Just look at that red puff, it reminds me of the beauty of classic Parisian opera. When it is worn on the cheek, Perles d’Etoiles shows up quite obviously. I have few meteorites that doesn’t really show its color when it is swatched or worn, but Perles d’Etoiles shows up and it can be safely worn as a blush or even to contour your face lightly.

Now let’s appreciate a revisited vintage, For the first time since its creation, Guerlain has reproduced Coque d’Or’s original bottle and reinterpreted it in gold- lacquered glass. The original Coque d’Or perfume was invented by Monsieur Jacques Guerlain in 1937 and he was inspired by the bow tie worn by men on gala evenings and ballerinas’ bows. For this reasons, there’s no reason to say no to owning this previous vintage design Coque d’Or.

For the lips, don’t forget to check out 820 Rouge Parade, it’s an ultra gorgeous red that will enhance your look in seconds! I tried this at Guerlain counter and I fell in love with it immediately, too bad it was out of stock at that moment. If you had the chance to grab this, I suggest you grab it quickly as the shade is absolutely beautiful and it’s selling like hot cakes!
