Mostly Sunny Summer Favorites: Heat/Humidity-Resistant Makeup

I’ve never managed to do any monthly favorites features. It seems that the timing is never right! Nevertheless, I grasped the opportunity to test out some of my favorite products in Taipei, and before summer is over I proudly present Mostly Sunny Summer Favorites: Heat/Humidity-Resistant Makeup!

I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter! Rouge Bunny Rouge Abyssinian Catbird Long-Lasting Eyeshadow

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!

Urban Decay New Eyeshadows in Midnight Rodeo, Vanilla, Evidence, Blackout, Chase, & Rockstar Swatch & Review

Hey everyone, happy Monday! What better way to celebrate the beginning of a new week with some colors right? I laid my hands on the Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Palette very recently. I am not going to review this palette in full because it’s old news, but with the “new” eyeshadows coming out, I would like to share my thoughts on the ones that are available as individual eyeshadows with you. I also got Rockstar as an individual shadow, so you’ll know what you can expect packaging-wise!

The shades in the 15th Anniversary Palette that are available as individual eyeshadows now are Midnight Rodeo, Vanilla, Evidence, Blackout, and Chase. They were brand-new and exclusive to the palette when they came out, but have become popular enough to be purchased individually. Want to see why they’re such charmers? Read on to find out!

Hey everybody!

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.

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!

Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense Gives You Eyes So Sexy that They can Kill– #3 #14 Swatch, Review, FOTDs

Is it me or does everybody associate the name of Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill with a spy/police detective/Quentin Tarantino movie?

Just me?

OK.

But I’m sure I’m not the only person who is exhilarated about Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadows!

After witnessing all the hype, I finally jumped on the bandwagon and purchased #3 and #14. These are known by numbers instead of names here (or rather by different names. The names I found on Sephora.fr is Ultra Violet for #3, and Or/Noir which means Gold/Black for #14) but in the US #3 is named Purpura and #14 Gold Spirit. And guess what? Even with some tiny hiccups, I can’t get enough of them!
