Powders - GUERLAIN - Meteorites - Perles du Paradis (spring 2013)

Firstly let me say I am not new to meteorites having purchased several in the past... and I am in LOVE with these ones!! These would quite possibly be my favourite and definitely in my top two. Why? For me, I use a dense blush brush to pick up the mixed residue at the bottom of the container (which mixes into a dusky pink), and it makes the most gorgeous daytime blush ever... subtle, glowing …Read more

I have been using this for 5 weeks. The formulation of this product on my lashes deserves a 5+++++. A med- full finish, nice amount of curl and a tapered more natural shape to the lashes. I have been a chanel and dior mascara user for many years, but am now ditching them for this superior formula - I cannot speak more highly of it. I have been using the sample they gave me now for 5 weeks (can …Read more

This appears like a soft terracotta/peachy color on my lips which just makes my cool toned complexion look pasty and washed out. An alternative to this color though for those cool tone girls who want a similar look to the model Vanessa but need a more complimentary look for their cool complexion is Legende worn with the Pretty Pink lipliner. Quality wise, I do like this range of lipsticks. The …Read more

For my fair cool toned complexion this color does what it claims - it really does brighten the face. Freshens the look of teeth, skin and eyes even more so when worn over a stained lip. I really don't like l/glosses due to the lack of staying power but this one lasts a good couple of hours even with snacking - so I am converted! I love the small size but the price is horrendous for the …Read more

Blush - Dior - DiorBlush - Strawberry Sorbets 943

I bought this in the search for my perfect cool toned pink blush which is not what it turned out to be once applied. If you are looking for a cool/neutral color, this is one to consider.

As far as quality goes it is very nice but not as sheer/refined as Guerlains powder blush 4 eclat (in my humble opinion).

Lipstick - CHANEL - Hydrabase Lipstick in Vamp

This would have to be my favorite color but not necessarily my favorite finish as I find it a little dry. Having said that, if it wasn't as dry, it probably wouldn't give me the look I love when I just dab on then smear with my finger to give just a little more than a berry stained effect. A balm over the top makes the lips look instantly delicious and adds a healthy freshness to my …Read more

Jul/29/2009

I bought this when it first came out and am extremely pleased with it and it is always in my bag. The color is not too strong on me but more a hint of color. I love to use it most when I am out and about and don't have time to reapply lipstick properly - I can just quickly swipe this over my lips (no mirror needed) and it just lifts out the color of whatever lipstick I was wearing - not …Read more

Jul/16/2009

I tried this in different ways and was most convinced of its redness reduction when I wore this simply over sunscreen etc (no foundation). It gave my skin a more even look and the color I want it to look - my skin without the pinkness! Unfortunately by the 5th day I was also convinced that my skin was having a reaction to the product as day by day there was an increase in the number of little …Read more

I like to use this as a next step up in coverage from my Laura Mercier tinted moist. I find the finish polished without looking heavy. As with ALL make up, I have to powder my t-zone. Will def buy again.
Edit: I have noticed a few people mention the inconvenience of the bottle - true. What I have always done is put a little into a Chanel sample jar (also great for travelling) and this …
