Blush - CHANEL - Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Rouge

Jul/10/2011

NW10, dark brown hair, golden brown eyes.

Very intense reddened-pink colour.

Matches my blood undertone perfectly, so with a light hand and large, fan-type brush (or similar... nothing dense!) I get the only natural flush I've ever seen.

I enjoy plums and hot pinks, but this red is natural in a way those can never be.

Make sure to dust off the top …

[NW10; golden brown eyes; dark brown hair]

Breathtakingly beautiful reddened raspberry. Cool, but not strikingly so. I've seen it worn on a neutral complexion and it was just as lovely.

Packaging is luxe but not over the top.

Staying power is incredible. Typically I eat off my lipstick within an hour, but this shade stayed on for several. And during that time …

[NW10, golden brown eyes, dark brown hair]


Lovely complex taupe, neutral in tone, leaning more brown than grey. Suits its name entirely.

Packaging is divine-- dark metal, snaps shut, has the brand's etching.

Quality is superb- soft, touchable, blendable.

Price is up there, but not astronomical given you're paying for great packaging …

me: NW10, golden brown eyes, dark brown hair

The light side is a cool greyed brown that qualifies as taupe, and the darker side is a cool brown.

Alone the light side is a perfect light opaque wash of taupe that does not turn or flash pink, orange, green, or silver. All other taupes (and I mean all!) eventually (or immediately) do this to me. It's great with just …

Blush - CHANEL - Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Plum Attraction

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/17/2010

nw 10/15; hazel eyes; dark brown hair

Stunning berry/burgundy flush on my pale skin. Typically I use Narcisse, so this is quite a change for me. But Plum Attraction gives a lovely depth and does more for my cheekbones that that lighter shade.

The downside is that the blush is so very pigmented-- more so than NARS-- that it is very, very easy to apply too much right off the …

Misc Beauty Tools - Diamancel - Foot Callus Rasp #20

Phenomenal foot file.

It seems flimsy and is very expensive, but it made my skin impeccably smooth on the first try.


I callous very easily and very badly... much worse than any man I've known. This has made me self-conscious for years.


The #20 file has changed my life.


It does take some time to file my feet down, but the result …

Extraordinary foundation.

It took me a long time to learn that a grain of rice size of the foundation is sufficient. At first, I was using far too much and it looked like I was wearing a kabuki mask, especially since I use the lightest (not available in the US) shade.

Used properly, the foundation is very, very good. Coverage is remarkably even and full. Finish is matte and …

An ultra-feminine guilty pleasure.

I wear this when I want to smell like my little girl self. (I warned you I felt guilty about it).

Not sophisticated but at least it doesn't smell of food.

It is soft, sweet, delicate, all baby powder and perfect full flowers. Not edible, but very caress-able.

NW10/15; golden brown/hazel; dark brown


Browned medium neutral red. A good daytime red. Not for the very meek, but doesn't require tremendous courage either.


Soft, slick, almost glossy.


Good wearing power, but I don't challenge my l/s much, preferring to reapply frequently.

No scent, feels good on the lips--- a bit heavy in …
