My Pick from Dior Fall 2012 – Golden Jungle 001 Golden Khaki Review

Dior Fall 2012 Make Up Collection has made its way to Singapore. Out of so many brands’ fall collection, I must sat that Dior tempted me the most. The collection is wide and the products are gorgeous. Moreover I am a sucker for neutral colors, so when I saw the promo pictures I immediately knew that I am going to get few products from this collection.

Here are the things that I bought last weekend plus the samples given by the SA:

I am happy that I got the new Dior Addict Perfume samples. It smells sweet and fresh! I like it! I also got the mini 5 couleurs eyeshadow which is insanely cute! I don’t know when I would be using this but looking at it already makes me feel so happy :) I got few skincare sample and mini mascara.

In this post, I am going to review Golden Jungle 001 Golden Khaki and in the end of the post you can see my FOTD with that palette :)

Dior Golden Jungle is available in two colors; 001 Golden Khaki and 002 Golden Brown. I must admit that Golden brown really tempted me. The matte dark brown is just so pretty and the lip color is more appealing to me. However since I knew that I would definitely get 5 Couleurs Golden Savannah, I skipped Golden brown and took Golden Khaki with me. I don’t own many khaki palette; I don’t even think I have one. Most of my khaki eyeshadows are single eyeshadow or part of my neutral color palette. I am sure I have made the right decision to get this color :)

 

Firstly, the packaging is superb! It made of metal case and it’s very heavy. Heavy casing gives me the impression that I am not cheated. I am paying a hefty price tag of S$100 for this, so I don’t like it when I got a lightweight and simple packaging. The leopard (or should I say Army?) print of this is gorgeous. There are 3 colors in this palette; a creamy silvery with minimal glitter on the top, a matte dark brown and a khaki green with a taupe undertones.

This palette is also comes with a lip color. Many eye & lip palette offers sultry and beautiful colors but the eyeshadow will eventually mess the lip color. I ended up never using the lip palette anymore which is wasted. The lip color is a sheer coral with glitter. I am liking the color a lot. One thing that makes me buy this palette is that they separate the lip color with the eyeshadow. It is so thoughtful of them to design this palette with a cover on the lip color. This will prevent the eyeshadow to mess the lip color.

Dior often launch beautifully printed eyeshadows, but many of the colors are not wearable. That’s the main reason why I am not buying those eyeshadows. But I gave up on this, this one is very pretty and the colors are just versatile. I think this one is really worth it especially this is a ‘limited edition’ thing :)

I did a look with Golden Khaki :)

Makeup Products used in this look:

Eyes: Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill in #08 Champagne for the base and inner eyelid, Golden Khaki eye palette, K-Palette real Lasting Eyeliner, Maybelline Falsies Mascara

Cheek: NARS Angelika, Wong Kar Wai for Shu Uemura 

Lip: Golden Khaki lip color

 

What do you think of Dior Fall collection? Are you getting anything from this collection?

Guerlain Rouge G De Guerlain Le Brillant – B61 Brenda

Holla! I am very happy to show you my first ever Guerlain Lipstick! I bought this during Isetan Sale which cost me around $25 (I can’t remember the price clearly). There were not many choices during the sale, I remember that there were only 3-4 Rouge G Guerlain lipstick. Most of them are very dark vampy or purplish which I don’t like. Luckily I found this one which still very wearable. This is Guerlain Rouge G De Guerlain Le Brillant – B61 Brenda.

The name of this lipstick is so long that it makes me difficult to distinguish many range of Guerlain’s lippies. Anyway, Guerlain lipsticks are super gorgeous in terms of packaging. Previously I have mentioned how pretty YSL Rouge Volupte Range is, now I think this one is worth comparing. I still think YSL’s packaging is better because it’s lighter and more elegant. However in terms of elegance, I think Guerlain has better design.

This lipstick is heavy, in fact this is the heaviest lipstick I own. It’s made of metal with small mirror inside. Although the material is great, this material tend to leave some finger print after I apply this lipstick. I must always clean this lipstick after I applied some. It’s pretty difficult to get nice photo of this lipstick because of its metal case; hence you can see my red camera and me with my pyjamas :p .

You can see how “expensive looking” this lipstick is. Only by looking at it, you’ll know how elegant this lipstick is.

The texture of  B61 Brenda is pretty sheer. At first I thought it would look very opaque. I am happy that it turns out pretty natural. B61 Brenda is a coral pink with yellow undertone. This color match my personality very well. I love wearing this lipstick on daily basis; it’s not too bright for office wear yet it still gives the color that I want. This lipstick lasted for about 4 hours with me. I am happy to re apply this lipstick again and again because I am feeling so happy whenever I open this lipstick case and see how beautiful this lipstick is :)

 

Have you tried any Guerlain lipstick? What do you think of them?

YSL Summer Look 2012 Pure Chromatics #8 Earthy and Eye Pencil in #8 Luminescent Gold

Summer is almost over but this does not stop me from buying summer make up. If you have been following us on instagram (@memoiselle) , I have posted photos from my Jakarta trip. I went back last week for my grandma’s birthday and I bought few items during my trip. I bought Pure Chromatics #8 Earthy, Eye Pencil #8 Luminescent Gold, YSL Touche Eclat and YSL Rouge Volupte in #7. 2 of the products I bought are part of YSL Summer Look 2012. Not everything I show here are mine, some are my mom’s :)

I have reviewed YSL Rouge Volupte #7 Pink Lingerie in my previous post. In this post I am going to review the Pure Chromatics and the Eye Pencil. This post is going to be picture heavy :)

 

Pure Chromatics #8 Earthy 

Pure Chromatics eyeshadow can be used wet and dry. That’s the reason why I love this range. #8 Earthy consists of 4 shimmering color. I like 3 colors from this pan. The upper left color is a nice color that can be used as a base. It’s a nice neutral color that won’t look too much for my skin (MAC NC20). The upper right color is the color that I least liked from this pan. It’s just a shimmering color that can be used as a highlight. The lower left color is very pretty too. This can be used as a base for a darker skin tone color or as a crease color for a fairer skintone. My favorite color from this palette is the lower right color, it’s a gorgeous khaki shade. I am surely using this to create a soft smoky look. The color is great for smokey look as this is not too dark for a daily use.

I swatched both dry and wet for you to see. The color shows much better when it’s swatched wet. Look at the pretty khaki color :)

Eye Pencil in #8 Luminescent Gold

At first I was not impressed by the color of this eyeliner. But after trying it on my inner corner, I gave up and get this one. In my opinion, great eyeliner must be soft, pigmented, smudge proof, waterproof and last for more than 6 hours. This eyeliner is very soft and pigmented, the color shows up easily. It only need one swipe to show the gorgeous color it has. Sadly this is not smudge proof; I swiped this on my hand and I smudged it after 3 minutes and I can see that some colors are scattered.

Then I did a waterproof test on this eyeliner. This product scores very well on this. I took this picture on my sink after I did the smudge test and you can see that the color stays there, it does not smudge because of water.

On the picture below, I am using #8 Luminescent Gold on my inner corner.

I am not going to review the touche eclat this time as it is my mum’s so I could not use it for few times before writing a review.

Anyway I am going to show my FOTD on my grandma’s bday. I curled my hair on special occasions and thought I would love to share the picture with you.

Products used:

Base Makeup: Avene Sunblock, YSL Touche Eclat in shade #2, MAC pressed powder in NC20

Eyes: Urban Decay Primer Potion, Urban Decay NAKED Palette, L’Oreal Infallible in Eternal Black, Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner in black, Lancome Eyebrow Pencil, Ardell False Eyelash in Daisy Black.

Cheeks: Burberry Summer Glow, Lunasol Glowing Powder Cheeks in EX03 Pure Coral Pink

Lip: Chanel Rouge Coco in #20 Rose Comete and Chanel Glossimer in #151 Aragonite

 

If you like YSL Pure Chromatics, I have previously reviewed YSL Pure Chromatics in No 3 , that’s a gorgeous palette too :)

So can you guess which product(s) belong to me and which one(s) belong to my mum? :p

I am very happy I can share this long post with you. I hope you enjoy this post. Leave me a comment below to let me know what you think :)

My personal thought on this product:

Packaging wise, this product is very handy. It’s very easy to bring this anywhere; it’s very lightweight and it’s in a good size to be put in a bag. The spray button at the top of the bottle is also made very safe, meaning it’s very unlikely that the liquid is going to be accidentally sprayed inside your bag. The texture of this UV mist is very light, I personally dislike a sunblock or a UV Mist that’s very light in texture. I feel that it doesn’t give me enough protection. I am aware that this is SPF 45 but when the texture is very light, I don’t really feel I am getting enough protection. However I think this product is good to be applied as a second layer. When I have been exposed to the sun for more than 3 hours, usually I will reapply my sun screen and I think this product is a good choice for that.
