The collection has finally hit Singapore shores and I am expecting many people would be buying the Meteorites Perles de Blush. I was reluctant to purchase the Meteorites Perles de Blush because of many considerations, but after looking at it in person, I was immediately sold!

I did a quick swatch at the counter and without further adieu, here are the swatches!

IMG_5082

Here’s a look at the whole collection. Guerlain divided the look into two categories; Angel Glow look and Precious Glow look.

In the Angel Glow Look, Guerlain has Ecrin 4 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in Les Précieux (SGD 88). The shades in this eyeshadow is a mixture of satiny shades and frosty/metallic shades. There are two kisskiss lipstick in this collection, 263 Ala Parisienne and 540 Peach Satin (LE) (SGD 49).

Another new product for this season is the Meteorites Compact (SGD 84). This is the pressed version of the highly sought after meteorites pearl and the pearls are finely pressed to form a beautiful mosaic of light-enhancing and corrective shades. Another good good news is, this would be a permanent collection.

Another product that I was waiting for this collectiion is the Meteorites Baby Glow (SGD 74). This product is promised to bring out the healthy glow of Meteorites Perles but in liquid form and it is packed with SPF 25. Meteorites baby glow features the Stardust technology, the light-creating polymer from the legendary Météorites.

Below is the swatch of shade 2 – Clair /Light 3 – Medium 4 – Doré / Golden, please pardon my dirty hand on this swatch.

Lastly, the highly anticipated Meteorites Perles de Blush (SGD75). The Perles de Blush are a combination of three shades of pearls – A fuchsia that revives the natural colour of the cheeks, an iridescent champagne that illuminates the curve of the cheekbones and a rose petal pink that gently refreshes the complexion.

It’s a limited edition perles de blush and as the swatch below show, you shall anticipate a pigmented perles for your cheek.

YSL Ombres de Jour Couture Palette

IMG_4980

I am still in the mood of exploring Spring items collection as they offers bright and wearable colors. However I notice that this Spring season, there are many brands that have launched their Spring collection with a twist. I personally think that YSL Palette Ombres De Jour is somewhat the colors I would expect from a Spring collection but with a little bold approach.

IMG_4976

IMG_4973 IMG_4974

Palette Ombres du Jour comes in a beautiful pink glittery packaging. The eyeshadow format & texture follows the latest couture formula which was launch last year. The eyeshadows are generally smooth and have silky texture. Pigmentation is nice with most colors pops on the first swatch except the pink one. I find that the pink is a little bit sheerer than the other shades.

IMG_4975

Top Left: Light taupe with no glitters/shimmers, leaning towards satiny finish

Top Right: Milky white with shimmers

Bottom Left: Medium brown with gold shimmers

Bottom Right: Light frosty pink

Middle: Matte black with pink glitters

I would say that generally the shades in this palette has good quality – they’re soft, smooth and buttery. However I faced some problems when I applied the black shade. I noticed some fallouts although I have used some primers. And the black shade is not as smooth as the rest of the shades too.

This is a look I did with this palette. I applied the light taupe all over my lid. Then I apply the pink shade on my 3/4 on my lid – I kept layering the shades to create a more popping pink. With a pointed brush, I applied the black shade starting from my outer corner (near the lash line) and blend the colors up. After blending, I re-added the colors until I get the look I desired.

IMG_0099 IMG_0100

Overall, YSL Ombres de Jour Couture Palette is an interesting palette where it showcase the beauty of spring shades without making it look too boring. I love that YSL added a matte black with pink glitters – it makes this palette a lovely spring palette to me. Generally the textures are fine – buttery and silky smooth and it has decent pigmentation too. Packaging is certainly one of the reason why I bought this product – just look at how pretty is that glittery casing! I would say that this palette is not a must have – but if you’ve been collecting YSL Limited Edition make up, this is one that you don’t want to miss! :)

Tom Ford Spring 2015 Swatches and EOTD of Raw Jade

IMG_4897 IMG_4901

If there’s a brand that always makes me excited over their launches, Tom Ford is definitely one of them! For Spring 2015, Tom Ford has launched some rather unusual colors. The brand focuses on bold eyeshades rather than the usual pastels shades that we would see in most brands.

Tom Ford has three limited edition eye color duos for this Spring;

  • Raw Jade
  • Crushed Indigo
  • Ripe Plum

Each palette would consist of two shades; an opaline shade that’s created uniquely for each palette and a darker metallic shade. Raw Jade is a khaki green and paired with a mint shimmery finish. Crushed Indigo is a combination of dark blue with shimmer and a metallic lavender shade. Ripe Plum is a combination between dark brown and a light metallic pink.

IMG_4901

IMG_4893

Without any doubt, Tom Ford eyeshadow delivers excellent pigmentation quality. This can be seen from my swatches above. It’s very easy to get the colors pop – no need too much layering. The eyeshadows can also be worn dry and wet. I’ve the swatches below for both wet and dry. When it is swatched wet, the metallic shades pops better than when it is swatched dry.

IMG_4894 IMG_4895

 

I’ve tried both wet and dry application to my eyelids; and for the sake of efficiency, I would prefer to wear it dry.

Here’s some closer look of Raw Jade when it is swatched both dry and wet over indirect sunlight.

IMG_4892 IMG_4891

 

For this spring collection, Tom Ford also released two new mascaras, Teal Intense and Black Plum.

“Tom Ford’s mascara has specially designed brush, full and dense, allows lash filling powders in a creamy formula to last throughout the day without clumping or crumbling, amplifying the eyes’ dramatic impact”

I’ve got Teal Intense to match with my Raw Jade, and so far this is one of the mascara that doesn’t smudge on me! Thumbs up!

IMG_4896

Alongside with this collection, Tom Ford also releases 4 Lip Shines that which will be out earlier than the rest of the collection. This will arrive in February in Singapore.

IMG_4900 IMG_4716 IMG_4899

 

In the EOTD below, I am using a green pencil eyeliner and smudge it out. I also used a primer under neath to make sure that the color stays longer. Then I applied the deep green shade on my outer corner and build the colors by layering. I applied the metallic mint green shade on my inner corner to accentuate the look. As you can see, when both colors are layered together, it creates a new shade of green – it comes out as a lovely mid metallic green.

IMG_0094 IMG_0098

 

Other than the excellent pigmentation, another thing that impressed me the most is the staying power. This eyeshadow stays perfectly for at least 6 hours with me. I did notice the color fades a little by the 9th hour, but it is totally forgivable as I was spending my time outdoor most of the time on that day.
