Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Pink Swoon - Satin Finish (Reformulation as of 2015)

3.0

Jan/28/2017

I have been devoted to Pink Swoon Sheertone for several years and have repurchased it I don't know how many times. I loved the way it imitated a natural flush and the way it could be build up or remain sheer and natural looking. I have worn it with with all my lipstick colors, and it has looked great with them all. I am very pale and don't look good with contouring or …Read more

Foundations - CHANEL - Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/19/2016

I had not had high hopes for this one because Chanel's Foundations normally are far too dark for my skintone. Actually, I wouldn't even had tested it, had I not found myself standing at the Chanel counter waiting for the SA to find the pictures of the summer collection (which took her quite a looong time), and thus, out of boredom, I happened to apply a few drops of foundation on the …Read more

Eye Shadow - Dior - DiorShow Mono Transat Edition Eyeshadow in Cabine (261)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/27/2014

I have many blue eyeshadows, and I normally don't go for solo eyeshadows, but I couldn't resist this one. Dior calls it a "navy", but I think midnight blue perhaps would be more correct. It's a rather dark, smoky, greyish blue, but not black or blackish as many dark blues are when they get on the lid. It's very pigmented - at least compared with the dark blue in the …Read more

Lipstick - Dior - rouge Dior 317 - Bar

Aug/16/2014

Over the last years we have seen a veritable army of nude lipsticks, standing side by side as little versatile soldiers at the make up counters. It has been commonly agreed that nude is a great every day shade, not to forget the perfect partner to smoky eyes - so of course, every woman must have at least one! And there really are nude lipsticks in every thinkable shade of pink, peach and purple …Read more

Polishes - CHANEL - Charivari

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/26/2014

Charivari is from the Chanel spring/summer collection 2014. It's not your usual spring color, but neither is it one of the nearly blacks of the last many winters. The color is a deep, saturated, blue based eggplant creme with an almost vinyl shine finish. It never looks black, and I don't think it looks brown either. In low light it has a hint of blue purple, but it never look dull or …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Red Hot Rio

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/26/2014

OPI Red Hot Rio is a great, classic red from the spring/summer collection 2014, named The Brazilian Collection. If you love OPI Vodka & Caviar you'll probably love this one too. It's just a bit lighter, a bit warmer and a bit more transparent, but the overall look and feeling is the same. It's more blue based than Big Apple Red, but it has the same beautiful, mirror like shine …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - OPI Scores A Goal

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/26/2014

OPI Scores A Goal is from the Brazilian Collection spring/summer 2014. The color is a bit surprising for spring, but it's a beautiful color, and it does go well with all the dry, dusty and burned colors of the coming summer.

Judging from the samples I had seen online I thought this one was just another brown - a color that is not my cup of tea in any incarnation. So it was a great …

Lipstick - Dior - Rouge Dior Rialto (no. 988)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/18/2014

If you often have been tempted to try a red lipstick, but have decided that you do not have the courage - if your complexion is not too warm, and you normally prefer slightly blue based lipsticks, this one is worth trying. Rialto is a silent blue based red with a hint of almost greyish brown that makes it a surprisingly discreet red. If you only wear a hint of it, it looks berry on the lips, but …Read more

Jan/18/2014

Dior have made 32 new lipsticks in order to celebrate their 60th anniversary - among them several reds. They push their iconic shade 999 as the truest red of the collection, but that is hardly the case. If you're looking for a true - not blue, not yellow based - red, Rouge Zinnia is a much better buy. It' neither light nor dark, cold nor warm, but simply a beautiful, intense, creamy …Read more
