Chanel Nakkar and Aragonite Swatches

Chanel Spring 2011 got me like woah.   I got the Ombres Perlees palette, the JC, and the 2 glossimers, featured here.  The swatches are indoors, as unfortunately it gets dark at like 3:30 nowadays and I never get enough sun-time in.  Though they are inside, the swatches are pretty accurate both color and shimmer-wise.

Make Up For Ever #41 Lipstick Swatch

Just wanted to do a quick lip swatch of yet another sexy red lipstick I recently acquired, MUFE #41.  It has a satin finish, and is a lovely warm toned rusty red. It’s probably a tad darker than pictured, but this is very close.  I’m loving it! Vital Stats Price: $19 (@ Sephora) Shade: Warm toned rusty [...]

Liplicious Crystal Candy Swatch

A few days ago I was in Bath and Body Works picking up some of my beloved mini hand sanitizers.  Then I stumbled upon this tubed gloss, Liplicious Crystal Candy, and I must say, I’m going to go back for a few more of the same one!  I’m looooving it. Mmmm, sparkly.  Click to see [...]

Tokidoki Mozzarella Palette Swatch

*stumbles in* So, uh, long time no post?  Well, a post a month still is an improvement! So let’s get down to it. After I got the large Tokidoki palette, I was interested in trying most of their stuff.  Unfortunately, not very many of their colors appeal to me.  However, the Mozzarella Palette’s combination of [...]

Tokidoki Robbery Palette EOTD

Here’s a quick eye look I did with the Royal Pride palette of the Robbery set. The lighting is warm in these shots but it’s still a relatively accurate representation.  I used Savana (gold) in the inner corner, Lion Pappa (bronze) on the inner lid, Ercolino (copper) on the rest of the lid and brought [...]

Tokidoki Robbery Palette Swatches

Welllllllllp, long time no post.  At least I got around to it in under a month, whereas my last hiatus was about a year.  Anywho, I recently got a boatload of items (pre-holiday sales galore), but one of the most interesting has been the tokidoki Robbery palette.  Yes, you don’t even have to ask– I got it [...]

Dior DiorShow Azure Blue Mascara

Another thing I recently purchased is Dior DiorShow Mascara in Azure Blue.  This is a SERIOUS cobalt blue, people. Like BAM. Now, I have really dark, black-brown lashes, as you can see from my bottom ones.  I needed no primer or anything to get the color to show up this vibrantly.  It’s freakin’ AWESOME.  I [...]

BOTD: NARS Sex Appeal

The new NARS blush for Holiday 2010 has some serious Sex Appeal.  Now, I wasn’t looking forward to this blush, as many people have reported that it is so sheer it’s practically invisible.  However, I found that it showed up quite well on me, more so than even the pictures indicate because the light balance of my [...]

Vital Stats Price: $8.50 Shade: burgundy purple with red shimmer that can flash slightly gold at certain angles. Finish: shimmer [...]
