I love this colour! It's dark, but it's not black. It does not look dull at all! I use this at the otter-v to create smoky eyes and as a liner. It does an amazing job at setting black liners since I don't like harsh lines. And it's also to just put it on the lower water line and smoke it out a little. I like to pair it with NARS Cyprus and MAC Patina. But I am sure it will go well with a lot of different colours.
Liquid -Guerlain - 'Lingerie de Peau' Invisible Skin-Fusion Foundation

This foundation provides decent coverage, but it does not look cakey at all. The finish is natural, more on the glowy side. I like how it feels on my skin but I think it's only for dry and cold weather because it is quite moist, and I do not like that for summer. It is surprising long-lasting even without powder and despite it feels pretty light. It smells so lovely. I love it!
Concealers -Chanel - Correcteur Perfection Long Lasting Concealer
Vittoriak 1/15/2011 7:02:00 AM
I am surprised by the reviews here! I like this concealer a lot, especially for my undereyes and any dark patches on my face (around the mouth). It is not drying and it sits on my skin perfectly. I have used other products for the undereyes like the eeeexpensive By Terry touche veloutée, Laura Mercier secret concealer and corrector. They are not bad, but they are either too expensive or too troublesome. The only complain I have is the tube. It looks nice, but the product will get everywhere once you open and close it too much.
I am surprised by how good this stuff is! It is incredibly moisturising yet pigmented. I am very dry lips but I really don't need any lip balm when I wear it.I love this colour for the winter. Kind of red and sultry but not overpowering. It's one of my favourite lipsticks in the winter.
Lip Gloss -Chanel - Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss - Fatale (61)

It is the best red colour I have ever encountered. My skintone usually don't go well with red. But I have been trying to look for one since I really want to wear it this winter. And this red is slightly cooler, which goes well with my skin. (I have strong yellow undertone, wear NC25(MAC)/Fiji (NARS). I love the texture of the gloss. It is very moisturising and it is not sticky at all. Very lovely.
I am so glad I found it. It's probably the best face product I have ever used. It evens out my face, and brightens it out. Doesn't make my skin oily, but rather, gives my face a beautiful finish. I don't even need much concealing after this, but it does not feel heavy at all. It is very very expensive, but I think I will need buying it because it is worth every penny.
I don't think I can live without it. It smells wonderful. It is hydrating. And it can set my makeup. Sometimes, when I feel like my foundation is not applied on so well, I just spray it on and it makes it look so much more natural and fresh! It's just great!
Mascara -Lancome - Virtuose divine lasing curves & length mascara

Oh wow. I adore this mascara! Yes, it does not thicken the lashes much, but then it hold curls extremely well. It lengthens fairly. And it gives people the illusion that I have naturally good lashes! And it is extremely waterproof. I wore it the other day and I cried for an hour (literally). And it does not move a single bit. Impressive! And I love the brush so much. It makes the application so easy and it can coat every single lash! Love it!
I tried but I just can't like this eyeshadow. The colour, well, at least by just looking at the pan, is simply beautiful. But it's really disappointing. It hardly shows on my lids, same case with all other satin finish shadows by MAC. They just don't work on me. As for filling my brows, I would prefer a matte finish other than a satin one. So, it just kind of sits in my house now.
I like this pigment. The colour is a golden-ish olive colour. Sometimes the gold is more apparent, and sometimes the olive is stronger, depending on the light. Very shimmery and beautiful. The staying power is good and it is sooooo pigmented. And the amount is a generous 6.5 g, comparing with MAC pigment (4.5 g) and GOSH effect powder (2.4g). The powder itself it a bit chunky but it does not irritate my eyes. The reason I don't give it a five is that it has quite a bit of fall out. But if you apply it before doing your foundation, there is no problem at all! Yet, given there are many other finer pigments on the market, I would not consider buying this product again - unless they have some really gorgeous and rare colours.
I bought the biggest bottle (75 ml) but I don't regret a single bit. I was looking for a fragrance for winter - something powdery yet with a hint of floral in it. And this is the perfect one. It is how I imagined how the new Balenciaga perfume should have been. The bottle is so elegant and the colours are so lovely. It doesn't take up a lot of space in traveling either. The scent is long-lasting, but it doesn't scream out loud at you. It's subtle and sophisticated, but it's always there. I have been wearing it everyday since I bought it. Sometimes I pair it with Miss Dior Cherie Blooming Bouquet. That scent is not as long-lasting, so it kind of adds a lovely floral top to it.
I got the Rose Gold and Pomegranate together. I love them both. But if I have to choose one that I like more, then it's Pomegranate. This is a shimmery berry colour. When you wear it, it gives you a nice and subtle sheen on your face. I like it so much. And it is very pigmented. I would buy it again. And I think I will buy other sleek blushes as well.
I love this blush! To me, the name 'Rose Gold' is not that appropriate. Peachy gold may sound more like it. I wish I had bought it before the summer because it seems like the perfect summery colour for me. It is very pigmented. The golden shimmer is very strong in this blush but I find that rather flattering. I like the look of the packaging. It's really 'sleek'. But man, it's difficult to open!
Eye Shadow -Bobbi Brown - Metallic Eye Shadow Single in Burnt Sugar
Vittoriak 10/4/2010 1:54:00 PM
I don't understand how I lived before getting this eyeshadow. This is the perfect eyeshadow for me. I love brown and this one is a beautiful golden red without much red/orange tone. It's not too shimmery. Pigmented, long-lasting. It's just gorgeous. Will repurchase it as long as they sell it.
I love the colour of Twilight. But I think this product takes a lot of effort to work with. I have got the lipstain by MAC that was released earlier in the year. Comparatively, the colour comes out from the marker thingy easily than the MAC one. But, once it's on your lips, it's almost impossible to move it away since it absorbs onto the lips right away. So I had to be very careful when I apply it. Yet, because of that, the colour is very long lasting, which is something that I wish for.
The lip balm is not very moisturising, and I found the design to be quite stupid. The duo-end idea is nice. But seriously? You just stick a tube of lip balm there without any protection?
I will repurchase the product because it is extremely long-lasting, despite I don't really enjoy the lip balm side.
