Liquid - Dior - DIORSKIN STAR

As someone else mentioned, this is too perfect. It's the first foundation ever which I can wear without powder on top. It's full coverage on me but never cakey (applied with fingers). It dries fast, so you must apply it quickly. Once it sets, it gives that healthy dewy look without looking oily, and this effect lasts all day, from morning to evening. It stays put throughout the day …Read more

Liquid - CHANEL - Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15

I was intrigued by the reviews here and decided to get this instead of my HG Dior Nude liquid this time. I got the lightest shade, B10 (I am fair). The formula is rather creamy if you shake the bottle and coverage was light to medium. Since most reviewers here find it marvellous, I believe it's my skin that this foundation didn't work for me. When I first used it, my skin was a little …Read more

Eyeliner - CHANEL - GRIS SCINTILLANT

Apr/29/2011

The most beautiful shade of gray, finally a true gray which isn't silver or anthracite/black. Shimmer is also visible when applied, not like glitter of course, but you can tell that the color is somewhat sparkling. However, I give 3 lippies because this liner is very sheer and soft. It's difficult for the color to show up in the waterline, and on the upper lid I need to draw the line …Read more

Lipstick - CHANEL - Rouge Coco Shine 55 - Romance

5.0

Apr/29/2011

I wanted something brighter than mauve/plum lip colors that I usually wear and I was between Romance and Aventure. I got Romance because it seemed more intense on my hand and I thought that Aventure would be very sheer. Well, on my lips (not pigmented) Romance is an intense pink (when swatched on my hand it seemed rose, but on my lips is blue-based pink without any violet/mauve tones). I also own …Read more

Lipstick - CHANEL - Rouge Coco Shine 65 - Cavaliere

Apr/29/2011

I love the Rouge Coco Shine formula, it's exactly like a liquid lipstick, very moisturizing, not at all sheer on me (I also own Romance and it's almost opaque too), and shimmering without being glittery. Cavaliere is a shimmery mauvey plum on me (it's in the same color family as Hydrabase Wild Tulip, Rouge Coco Sycomore etc). I cannot detect any brown. When applied on my hand it …Read more

Eye Shadow - GUERLAIN - Ombre Eclat Mono - L'Instant Fauve

This color is gorgeous! A peach infused with golden shimmer. It is what I thought that MAC Pigment in Melon would look like (unfortunately it's just golden on me). Usually peach eyeshadows are either too light that don't show up either too golden. This is a color which has depth. Although the golden shimmer may look too much, the actual color is visible, it doesn't look like gold …Read more

Eye Shadow - CHANEL - Quadra Eye Shadow - 19 Enigma

Jan/20/2011

Colorwise, this is a palette which I wish it was permanent. I love mauve/khaki/eggplant colors so much and this quad has them all. The colors have been described accurately, although the bottom left one, which is refered to as gray, is a sparkling mauve on me. However, I have two issues with this product. First of all, I don't find the shadows particularly pigmented. I have to use a lot of …Read more

Lipstick - GUERLAIN - Kiss Kiss - Envie de Beige 540

Jan/15/2011

This is my first KissKiss lipstick. I have fair skin (with cool undertones) and this is a true nude on me without washing me out. The formula is beautiful, hydrating, not completely matte neither shimmering. Lasting power is impressive. I use it with Chanel Natural lipliner and on me it's the most appropriate nude for smoky eyes in brown, green or blue. However I think that it might turn …Read more

Eye Makeup Remover - CLINIQUE - Rinse-Off Eye Makeup Solvent

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/15/2011

I had a large sample and I used it for 2 weeks. The only good thing about it was that it isn't oily. As a remover it was mediocre. Having read though a review below saying that it's not a remover but a solvent, I guess it's ok, although I don't understand why I should take this extra step. Anyway, the biggest issue that I have with it is that it stings like hell once it gets …Read more

Lipstick - Yves Saint Laurent - Rouge Volupte - Sensual Silk #2

Jan/09/2011

When I swatched it on my hand, it seemed to be the perfect beige nude I was looking for, so I got it immediately and I couldn't wait to put it on (I hate applying products from testers on my face, so I never test anything on me actually, just on my hand...). Unfortunately, this shade is invisible on me, or makes my face invisible, meaning that it looks just a little better than concealer on …Read more
