Beautiful Beginnings with Kiehl’s

Beautiful Beginnings with Kiehl’s

What was the first Kiehl’s product you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer: Though I may not review the brand very often, I actually use numerous products on a regular basis, and it’s one of the few brands I repurchase from. It’s an affordable, practical range of effective skincare products. Right now, I have a Kiehl’s body wash, Creme de Corps, body sunscreen, and tinted moisturizer all in rotation.

Share your first time experiences with Kiehl’s in the comments! 🙂

Color Club Editorial Nail Lacquer

Color Club Editorial Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “peridot duochrome.” It’s a yellowy, dirty gold with brown and green in it that flashes from gold to grass green. It is, not surprisingly, a dupe for Chanel Peridot. The also recently-released China Glaze Rare & Radiant is rather similar as well (to be reviewed). Ozotic #507 is a bit darker, more green to blue than gold to green.

Chanel L’Impatiente Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick

Chanel L’Impatiente Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “deep red-black.” It’s a darkened berry-red with semi-opaque color coverage. There seemed to be a very faint shimmer in it, too.  It’s definitely a lot lighter than what it looks like in the tube. MAC Approaching Storm is browner, less berry. MAC Hang Up is similar, just glossier. MAC What Joy is redder. MAC Endless Drama is darker. Guerlain Gigolo is redder. MAC Musky Amethyst is more subdued. NYX Violet Ray is redder.

L’Oreal Eternal Sunshine Infallible Eyeshadow

L’Oreal Eternal Sunshine Infallible Eyeshadow ($7.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium yellowy gold with a frosted, metallic finish. It has a strong sunshine yellow coloring to it, so it’s warm, but it’s not orange. Tarina Tarantino Mr. Gold is similar, less metallic. MAC Sweet & Sour is very similar. Bare Escentuals Aspire is a bit lighter. Urban Decay Blunt is close.
