Dior Garden Pastels Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Garden Pastels Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as “pale pink, buttercup yellow, and luminous greens.” It’s new and limited edition just in time for spring. It’s slightly lighter compared to the usual Dior eyeshadow palette, which has 0.21 oz., while this palette only has 0.16 oz. I suspect it is due to the consistency difference somehow, since it doesn’t seem less full or smaller compared to other Dior eyeshadow palettes.

Chanel Belgravia Rouge Allure Lipstick

Chanel Belgravia Rouge Allure Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “lustrous and vibrant rose.” It’s a limited edition shade from the Knightsbridge collection, which is an exclusive to chanel.com. Chanel says the color “pays tribute to a region of London, rich with history and classic architecture.” It’s a brightened strawberry pink with lighter pink shimmer. The color coverage is mostly opaque, though my lip freckle is still visible.  Chanel’s Rouge Allure formula is one of my favorites, and it’s my favorite lipstick formula by Chanel.  The formula is long-wearing (this shade wore for five hours), comfortable to wear, and moisturizing.  It’s a little less color coverage than I would expect from a Rouge Allure, but it’s not sheer.

NYX Violetta Eyeshadow

NYX Violetta Eyeshadow ($5.00 for 0.088 oz.) is a gold shimmered pink-purple with a satiny sheen. The color payoff is good, so it turns out mostly opaque, but the shimmer is more sparkled on top than it is truly embedded with the color, so it does result in some fall out. It reminded me a little of MAC Half-Wild when really sheered out, though darker. Urban Decay Purple Haze is fairly similar with a matte finish and more purple in it.

Chanel Kensington Rouge Allure Lipstick

Chanel Kensington Rouge Allure Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “bold and brilliant fuchsia.” The color is inspired by “one of London’s most posh shopping districts.” It is a vibrant pink with blue undertones. The coverage is mostly opaque, and the finish has a lovely natural shine but still looks creamy and lush on the lips. This is a lipstick that really looks beautiful when worn; it just has that really cushiony look, where lips look like pouty pillows.
