NARS Sweet Disposition Swatches

I completely forgot I have this NARS multiple which I bought last year before my holiday. The set consists of Mini multiple set for eyes, cheeks, and lips in Orgasm, Luxor and Malibu (4g each). This set is very good for traveling because of their tiny size.

François Nars’ iconic innovation, the original multi-purpose stick for eyes, cheeks, lips and body. Its unique creamy formula and sheer color blends effortlessly to create shimmering accents, contours or dynamic highlights on all skin tones. Apply with fingers: the skin’s warmth allows for perfect blending.

Orgasm is my favorite of course, the pink color is so perfect for cheek. Read Meryl’s post about NARS Orgasm blush here. Luxor is good for highlighter I guess, but haven’t tried it myself. I have to play around with these from now on :)

Dior Summer 2012 – 1 Couleur Eye Gloss in 750 Sunset and 560 Tan

Dior has just released the summer 2012 make up. There are few products that they launched, but Dior 1 Couleur Eye Gloss caught most of my attention. This product comes in 4 colors; 020 seashell, 240 Azur, 560 Tan, 750 Sunset. When I was at the Dior counter, honestly I was tempted to get all the 4 colors. However I need to save my wallet so I decided to purchase something that I would wear more often which are 560 Tan and 750 Sunset. Both colors are nice and wearable for my daily use.

This is the description I took from Dior Website:

“The first Eye Gloss by Dior. Dior’s gel shadow bathes eyelids in aqua freshness for a crystalline shimmer, combining a wet look with aqua light reflections for a glamorous look in the colors of the French Riviera. This water-resistant gloss goes on perfectly smooth with one swipe for long-lasting results. Comes in a range of 4 shimmery shades.”

I previously thought that the texture of this eyegloss would be watery but once I swatch it on my arm I knew I was all wrong. The texture os this eyegloss is more to creamy side rather than to watery side. It’s not something like a cream eyeshadow in a pot but it has a creamy texture. In my opinion this two colors would work well as a base for most eyeshadow colors.

Let’s take a look at 750 Sunset

This is a coral color with a hint of pink and lots of shimmers. Neutrals is my weakness and this is definitely something that I like. I have not tried it on my face yet but I think this color will look great combined with a dark grey color to create a simple smokey look.

Now here’s 560 Tan

a deep brown color packed with shimmers. This caught my attention as I have read in few beauty blogs that this is very well pigmented. I think this would works well for those who are tanned. I would be happy to wear this at my outer crease to create bigger look for my eye.

Now let’s get to the swatches:

Dior 750 Sunset

Dior 560 Tan

From these two eye gloss, I foresee that I would use 560 Tan more than 750 sunset. 560 tan would be great to be applied alone plus a swipe of eyeliner. I also love 750 sunset. The color is more girly and sweet however I won’t be wearing 750 sunset alone. I would still have to blend this with a darker color to make my eyes look bigger.

When I first saw the promo pictures of Dior 1 Couleurs, it immediately reminds me of Chanel Ombres Paupieres which has been discontinued. But when I swatched them together, it turned out that they have different textures. Chanel Ombre Paupieres leans more towards watery side and Dior 1 Couleur Eye Gloss is more to the creamier side. As you can see above,  their textures are different. You can see that Dior’s are stickier than Chanel. I personally love Dior’s more than Chanel’s.

So what is your pick for Dior’s Summer 2012?

Thank you for reading.

Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited PK 335 Swatch and Review

I have mentioned in my previous post that I am going to share my review on Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited with you all. During the event which I attended (you can read more here), Shu Uemura let me pick one lipstick from their Rouge Unlimited collection. I was quite confused on which shade I should pick since there are 36 shades to pick. I decided to go with pink hues and again I was in dilemma to pick between PK 335 or PK 345 (also known as Tao pink). Both are shocking pink color but PK 335 looks sweeter on me and more suitable for my everyday use. PK 345 looks great on me too but I foresee that I won’t be wearing it too often thus I decided to grab PK 335.

This color is just lovely! It’s the kind of pink that I need, it’s not too bright and not pale at all. As mentioned in the press release kit, this range of collection will produce a semi matte finish, thus  it doesn’t produce a high shine finish. The texture is creamy and moisturizing. I didn’t experience any peeling. Honestly I don’t think that this lipstick is very long lasting. I applied this lipstick after I finished my lunch and I can see that the color has appeared to have less color after 2 hours. Personally I don’t mind with this and despite that I am still liking this lipstick.

As you can see, the pink color is a little bit sheer and that’s one of the reasons why I am liking this so much. There’s a slight shimmer packed on my lip and I love how this looks on me. This brighten up my face.

Rouge Unlimited is available islandwide at Shu Uemura Counter from May onwards, retailing at $39 a piece.
