I have very little loyalty when it comes to cosmetics. As amazing as some products can be, I’ve always got an eye on the next best thing. Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadows are definitely one of the rare products that I have gone back to. Without further ado, I bring you the new limited edition shade in #25 Rusted Gold!
Ever since I saw Rouge Bunny Rouge Abyssinian Catbird, it has earned itself a solid place on my wish list. However, the eyeshadows in pot are rather pricey, so when the refills came out I was really happy to finally get this shade at a greatly reduced price!
I am going to make a confession that will make most beauty bloggers and readers scream: I am not (yet) a fan of taupe.
Before you pelt me with stones however, you have to hear my story. In the beginning of this blog, I swatched the NYX Rock and Roll trio (click here for a trip down memory lane). While I was impressed with the quality in general, I just never managed to make the colors work for me. Since people say the middle shade is a dupe for MAC Satin Taupe, I did the math and decided that taupe is not for my rather warm skin tone.
However, recently, to help a bride who never wears makeup to obtain a small amount of foundation she needed for her makeup trial and big day, I had to purchase something from MAC. That’s when I thought: maybe I can make this immensely popular shade work for me after all. Long story short, Satin Taupe ended up in my hands.
I hope your Monday wasn’t too rough and your week is off to a good start! I also hope the weather is nicer where you are. It’s been around 10 degrees (around 45 degrees Fahrenheit) and rainy here for the past couple of days. It’s hard to believe it’s already June! I am seriously tempted to turn the heater back on!
After the quick n’ dirty swatches of the three Illusion d’Ombre in Les Expressions de Chanel collection that I showed you yesterday, today I have the swatch, full review, comparison, and FOTDs of Vision (89) for you!
Just when you think brights have been done and overdone this season, Dior throws some fun jellies into the mix with Dior Summer Mix! The collection comes with 4 Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss and 4 Dior Vernis Gloss, and it will hit the store here in Belgium on June 20th. From what I can see, it is also due out in the U.S. in June.
Today we’re going to look at Calypso (158) and Cosmo (178). Dior Vernis Gloss promises “Sorbet-like color, glossy nail lacquer,” but as I decoded in the beginning, this means they have a lovely jelly finish! I’m also comparing the two colors with two Dior Vernis I own, Lucky and Plaza, so keep reading after the jump!
