I haven't been paying much attention to the MAC collections lately but I was randomly browsing Temptalia and saw the swatch for this one. And it was instant love. I rushed down to a Mac counter because this had been out for a week already but there were still some bottles and I snapped up one immediately.

The color is a beautiful light pinkish taupe. It blends beautifully with …

Lip Gloss - CHANEL - Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss - Triomphal (517)

This was an impulse buy during the holidays. I usually don't wear bright reds and I already have Dragon so I didn't think I'd want another red. But this red is quite different. More cherry and very fresh. I like it a lot. But beware, it's a very heavy container. I dropped it on my toe and it felt like a brick. My toe ended up swollen for days.

Love this blush. It's my favorite now. Since I bought this a couple of weeks ago, I've been wearing it everyday. It's a gorgeous pink on my cheeks, very understated and very natural, enough to make me feel like a princess when I wear it. The "soft glow" is really just that, a beautiful soft focus glow on my MAC NC-20 skin. I have large pores and MAC MSFs blushes just …Read more

Blush - CHANEL - Rose Tourbillon

Bought this when it was an Asia exclusive and simply had to rave about how beautiful this blush is. I'm about NC-20 (in mac) and 10 Beige Claire for Chanel's Mat Lumiere Extreme foundation and this blush makes me look like a pretty pink princess. In the pan, Rose Tourbillion looks frighteningly glittery but on my cheeks, its just a very soft pink glow. Love it! I feel so luxurious …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Paint Pot - Dangerous Cuvee

I love this paint pot! Such a gorgeous silvery gray mauve on my lids. It's fairly sheer but I wear it with my favorite taupe, Shu Uemura's ME 850 Brown for my every day look. I don't find the texture that glittery, though I admit to having just a teensy bit of fallout sometimes but I don't find it troublesome to brush it off. I also use my shadow pressed lightly on top, so it …Read more

This is the most expensive blush in my collection. I'm not quite sure I can justify it but it is a beautiful blush and I had a gift voucher, so I didn't have to put out too much cash for it.
This blush advertises "Secret to a Healthy Glow" on the back of the case and boy does it deliver! And best of all, the glow is not in that accentuates-your-big-pores-like-a-MAC-MSF …

Fishnet is one of my favorite UD shades. I also use Ransom a lot from this palette. Unfortunately, those 2 shades are about all I use from this palette. In a way I find that a pity but I can't seem to get enough interest to use the other colors, especially the neutrals. They're just too... neutral.

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Dalliance - Peacocky 2011 Collection Mega Metal Shadow

Dalliance and Prance are really the standouts of the Peacocky collection. So far I've been giving more love to Prance but today, I did a bronzey eye look with Dalliance and fell in love. Love the texture of these mega metals and just how easy it goes on. And the beautiful sheen after I blend it all in makes me want to go out of my way everytime I see a mirror to look into it.
I put …

Lip Gloss - CHANEL - Insolence (57)

Feb/20/2011

This is my favorite lipgloss. Love the pinkish natural shade that it gives my lips, sort of MLBB for me. I usually wear it alone, and it makes my lips look so polished and plump. No glitter, which is something I like as well. The price is horrendously high, but thats Chanel for you.
The only other thing bad I have to say about this gloss is that the case is black, so you can't see how …

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Prance Mega Metal Formula

Feb/19/2011

I love the mega metal collection and have about six of them. Prance is one of my favorites. In the pan, it looks very dark, so I was initially intimidated. Is this supposed to be a light shade? But I took the plunge and patted it on my eyes, and it turned out to be a beautiful light mauve-lilac-silver-champagne that's very close to my skin tone with a beautiful shimmer. It blends so well. I …Read more
