Lately we have been into purple nail polish so bad. Purple looks gorgeous on both of us. Hence, we keep on spending our salaries on purple polishes (Oh no :p). Chanel Fantastic has been missing for a long time in many Chanel stores in Singapore. But luckily I managed to get this bottle into my hand!
What makes this nail polish looks fantastic is that it contains small shimmer particle inside. It doesn’t look very obvious yet it’s still sparkly under the sunlight. I would describe this polish as a shimmery creme dark purple polish. It looks very nice on my nails. The formula of this polish was not that fantastic though. It’s quite thick, however it’s still manageable. If I have to be very honest, I would prefer OPI’s nail polish rather than Chanel’s. Chanel’s brush is smaller and it makes the application process more difficult. However, I have never found any OPI nail polish that looks exactly the same or at least very close in the color and shimmer.
Now let’s take a look at the pics!
These 3 pictures were taken at direct sunlight
This is how it looks in indoor lighting
You can see the color after it has been applied to the nail compared to the color shown in the bottle.
Hi my lovely readers,
Both of us rarely post anything about skin care, and now it’s time for us to post what we are using each day! This item is a newly arrived item at my skin care box. It’s my new favorite skin care item. Let’s begin with the packaging!
As usual, Chanel’s packaging is always alluring. It’s elegant and looks so classy. The packaging was made with some sort of metal which makes it looks so good and heavy. I don’t mind having a heavy packaging for my daily use. But for travelling purpose, I’ll definitely move some of the cream to other container. The cap of the packaging is a dark grey color with a Chanel logo on top of it.
Now let’s talk about the cream itself. The formula is very rich. The texture is very creamy. I have only used this for about a month and I can already see the result. I had such a bad dark eye circle and feels quite sad about it. I have used other eye cream brands and none of them seems to be working as well as this one.
The price of this eye cream is Sgd 119. It’s considered expensive especially for us who have just started working. My final thought about this product is that this Ultra Correction Lift is by far one of the best eye cream I have ever used. It’s creamy, rich in formula. The packaging really shows the elegance and classiness of Chanel. The only downside of this product is the price. But what can I say? Chanel has never offered a low priced product
Just 36 days till Christmas! I still cant believe we almost at the end of 2011.. time flies right? Anyway, Christmas is one of an excuse to buy something nice for working hard this year, oh well at least it is for me.
I gave up buying designer high heels because I ended up used it just around the house. Even though I kinda need wear heels (I’m petite by the way), I scared of wearing high heels. So I have decided to invest in items that I will wear such as flats shoes. One of my choice is Varina flats from Salvatore Ferragamo. I think its classy and never out of style, I know some of you will say it looks mature and old. What do you guys think?

Next, I wear jeans a lot and so far my favorite are Hudson, 7 for all mankind and Citizens of Humanity. Jeans is so versatile you can dress down and dress up too, would love to try J Brand. Any thoughts or recommendation about the sizes? Skinny jeans looks really good with high heels…

Again, I hardly used accessories even on weekend but I bought quite a few of them and they’re just in a basket somewhere in my wardrobe. Maybe this time go with something more simple, my choice goes to Jennifer Zeuner Mini Horizontal Cross Necklace. Love how the cross is horizontal instead of vertical.

This ring from Samantha Wills looks so pretty and love the blush color which definitely match my wardrobe easily. Not sure if I will wear this often but I can imagine wearing this with maxi dress will be so pretty.

Okay the last item is Michael Kors Jet Set Sport Watch, always wanted to have an over sized watch, I think this just the right size for me.

I should have stop thinking about myself and get started on getting gifts for the loved ones, would love to hear your christmas wish list if you have one
Hi all readers!
Sorry for the late posting! Both of us are very busy with our study and working life. However, we still managed to grab few things in order to fulfill our crave for christmas products
Here’s the collection from Shu Uemura Christmas Collection. Shu Uemura is working with Hong Kong film director Wong Kar Wai to create this christmas collection. The collection consists of a broad range of products; eye shadow palettes, lipsticks, lustrous glow powder, nail polish, brush set and nail polish. What we bought from this collection are the mini nail duo and the lustrous powder.
We are very sorry that we don’t include swatch of the highlighting powder in this post. But in the future, we’ll feature the product in our FOTD post. In the meantime, enjoy the pictures!
Here’s a closer look at the lustrous powder. The lustrous powder is a shimmery pale pink color that can be used as either blush or highlighter for your cheeks. I won’t say that the packaging is gorgeous. It’s just a simple design but I just love the color!
For the nail polish, I’m currently wearing the shiny rouge nail polish on my nails. The color is a purple-red color. It’s very shiny and an outstanding color for your nails. I haven’t tried the glitter gold color nail polish yet, but I’ll definitely post it when I’m wearing it!
Giorgio Armani #507 Rouge d’ Armani is a pink color lipstick that is very opaque. The color shows very well on asian skin tone. We rarely post a striking pink lip color on our blog as we love nude/natural pink color more than any other colors. We usually wear this color whenever we have a very simple eye make up and we want to emphasize the color on our lips.
The packaging of Giorgio Armani lipstick is very simple, yet very professional. The case is a magnetic cap, it’s similar to what Burberry Lipstick has. This is a good thing as your lipstick won’t accidentally be opened in your bag and mess up your whole bag (oooppssss :p). In the swatch gallery, we posted few photos and we compare the #507 Rouge d’ Armani with Chanel Rouge Allure #04 Imagination and Chanel Rouge Allure Enivree #197 (reviewed HERE ).
