Jan/30/2018

I am nc25/30 and meringue is a good match for me. I think the shade is darker than the online description would have you believe. To me it's medium/fair not very fair. Finally found a nice yellowy clinique foundation. Coverage is v light imo. It's not buildable as it starts to feel too gunky. I like this for the glow, a slightly less glowy finish than NARS TM. Beware, it does pool in …Read more

Eye Shadow - Viseart - Eyeshadow Palette - 08 Editoral Brights (Matte Finish)

Perfect if you want clear, bright colour and/or are constantly disappointed by shadows not looking as blue, green, purple etc as you'd like. These are the most pigmented shadows I own (UD, toofaced, shiseido, MUG). The full effect is almost like poster paints but you can also apply a smaller amount and sheer it out for a subtle yet colourful glow. I feel they are good for hooded eyes as …Read more

Palettes - SHISEIDO - Luminizing Satin Eye Color Trio

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/23/2016

I have four of these - jungle, fire, floracouture, tropicalia. The texture is unique compared to my other shadows - stila, MUG, UD, toofaced. I would say they are silky rather than creamy or buttery. Lightweight. They lay down true-to-pan colour without obliterating your skin, like how you can see paper through watercolours. The colour is definitely there but has a translucency to it. Blend …Read more

Palettes - Unlisted Brand - Iconic 1, 2 and 3

I got these in a 3 for 2 so super cheap. I wanted to see if it was worth shelling out for the real thing.
Firstly, I like the packaging. It's basic but not flimsy, doesn't take much space and you know what you're reaching for. My fave turned out to be no3, love the rose golds in it. Even the chunky pink shadow makes a nice inner corner highlight. I don't feel the need …

Palettes - Makeup Revolution - I Heart Revolution - I Heart Chocolate eyeshadow palette

First of all the packaging is great. Very sturdy, big mirror, the shadows inside look lovely. There is a sweet fake scent, I don't particularly care about that though.
I have the iconic 1, 2 and 3 which I find to be good quality, easy to use, good colour payoff. I was hoping for the same with this palette but sadly no.
Don't be influenced by the finger swatches you see …

Fragrances - Etat Libre D'Orange - Rien Eau de Parfum

Oct/19/2016

I get a lot of incense. The only incense I like is in nuit de noel where its v gentle. Rien's incense is very burn-y, hot and dry. There is an animal note. I think it's civet. This frag. is like being trapped in a garage while someone in cracked leather revs a motorbike. That does give way to rose and powder, which is weird.
I was looking for a musk. I prefer musc nomade or …

Fragrances - Etat Libre D'Orange - Putain des Palaces

Yes, I get the dirty, fresh-sweat, silk lingerie note, HOORAY. This is intermingled with floral powder and sugar. As if you had a lunchtime tryst, didn't have time to shower afterwards so sprayed on some deodorant and left.
Of course I would never do that but I would wear this.
The sillage is lovely, kinda sparkling and brighter than sticking your nose to your wrist.
Took me …

I only have a tester vial, which I had to pay for!
The opening is citrussy and rather overpowering but it quickly gives way to the plush, velvety, powdery heart - imagine that l'heure bleue and habanita had a baby. I want to say that leather is in there, but it's not listed in the notes which are: Bergamot, Neroli, Geranium, Jasmine, Rose, Ylang ylang, Orris, Musk, Patchouli …

Fragrances - Lancôme - La vie est belle intense

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/16/2016

It's not more intense than the original but I guess they couldn't call it La vie est belle nutty. The hazelnut is very obvious to me. I only started to notice the tuberose after half a dozen wears. I find this version less dry and coco mademoiselle-like than the original. Sweeter and a touch softer.
The sillage is amazing. I quite like smelling my own fragrance wafting around me …

So beautiful with dark brown eyes. It's what I wanted from NARS night porter, which was too black and chalky. This is more green than night porter, not as blackened.
For an emerald look I layer it over a green kiko es stick. For a blackened look, over a black cream base. There is fallout but I guess that's to be expected. I have v hooded eyes so I can't get the full on …
