Here’s a secret: sometimes I don’t really want to review something not because I’m lukewarm about it, but because I am too attached. Blogging about beauty involves constantly trying new things, but sometimes I’m actually really happy to stick to what I know and love, like Aesop Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Facial Treatment! To put simply, it’s a dry oil, and probably the heaviest but the best I’ve ever tried! If I have anything important the next day or just feel my skin needs some extra boost, this is what I take out of my arsenal!
Being a translator by profession (and nature), I’ve always found the world of words fascinating. Take this Diorblush for example. The original name in French, Terre de Sienne, is the equivalent of Sienna in English. The clay is widely used in oil paint pigments. If you search for it on the Internet, you will see resemblance of the real thing and the Diorblush named after it. The name in English however, does not evoke the same type of music, so here we are with Sugar & Spice (849), and a different set of associations that come with it.
But I digress… You’re not here to learn about clay, you’re here to look at a pigmented, versatile, natural blush with excellent texture!
Besides bolder lip shades, something else that I unexpectedly fell in love with this year has to be cream eyeshadows. In the past I was skeptical: how can anything stay put on my normal-to-oily monolids? Well, as it turned out, some cream shadows deliver the creaseless promise, like Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner! Today I’m showing you Birthday Suit and Skinny Jeans.
Truth be told, highlighting was a step that I very often skipped. Either the highlighters gave me frosty sheen, or they barely did a thing. Most of the time I contoured under my cheekbones and called it a day.
Until I met Diorskin Nude Shimmer Instant Illuminating Powder, that is! I know that some people are still crying about the fact that Amber Diamond and Rose Diamond have been discontinued in Europe (I still don’t know how it is for anywhere else. Last time I checked they still existed in North America and Asia). I never got to know Amber Diamond (it had been discontinued when I made up my mind to pick it up), but with Diorskin Nude Shimmer Instant Illuminating Powder, I don’t feel deprived!
Has this happened to you? The first couple of times you sample a scent on a piece of paper you are not impressed, but it sort of grows on you. No, it does more than growing on you. It lures you in fast as lightening and the next thing you know, you’re hooked!
That’s my story with Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Parfum!
