Giorgio Armani #5 Copper Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil

Giorgio Armani #5 Copper Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil ($27.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as it’s named: “copper.” It’s a muted copper with a gold sheen. The only shade I could think of that was similar was tokidoki Unicorno, which is more like an orange-gold. theBalm Mischievous Marissa is a bit like it, but it is an eyeshadow.  It delivers mostly opaque color coverage in a single pass, which is always a noteworthy feat for an eyeliner.  There’s a metallic sheen, but it’s not too reflective.

Beautiful Beginnings with Burberry

Beautiful Beginnings with Burberry

What was the first Burberry 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 Burberry product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer: Burberry Beauty only debuted a little while ago, which makes it easier on my memory 🙂  The very first product I reviewed was Trench eyeshadow, which is my go-to brow highlighter.  It’s mostly matte, but it just matches my skin tone perfectly.  It’s soft, silky, and incredibly blendable.  The next two products I tried were both blushes, which are soft and lovely if you prefer a softer, more matte finish to your cheek color.  I remember being pleasantly surprised by the roll out of the beauty arm of the brand–they didn’t phone it in, and it was well-done.  Everything fit the brand to a T.

Revlon Lollipop Colorburst Lip Butter

Revlon Lollipop ColorBurst Lip Butter ($7.49 for 0.09 oz.) is a bright, fuchsia-pink with iridescent purple-fuchsia shimmer and cool, blue undertones. It’s similar to MAC Show Orchid, which is brighter. NARS Schiap is a little brighter and has no shimmer.  There’s a lovely glossy shine that’s not as high-shine as a lipgloss, but it’s just shy of it–definitely glossier than most lipsticks.  The glossiness works with the more opaque color to give lips a really full, luminous look.

Bobbi Brown Nude Rose Rich Lip Color

Bobbi Brown Nude Rose Rich Lip Color ($23.00 for 0.13 oz.) is described as a “medium-tone rose brown.” That description is apt–it’s muted rosy pink with hints of beige-brown that downplay its color and make it more of a neutral shade. theBalm Strawberry is more coral. CoverGirl Heavenly is similar, less pink. Guerlain Cherry Blossom is sheerer and shimmered. Bobbi Brown Heather Pink is browner.

5 Pretty in Peach Blushes

5 Pretty in Peach Blushes

Peach can be a really wearable color that can look natural on any skin tone.  Cooler complexions will find that peach-hued blushes can help mitigate any natural redness on the cheeks without emphasizing it like a pink blush might.  Warmer complexions are easily freshened up with a pop of peach on the cheeks.  Reader Sirinthorn wanted to see what my five picks would be for peach blushes, and here they are:

  1. Chanel Espiegle— peach-orange with a satiny sheen
  2. MAC Peaches — classic peach with subtle brown undertones
  3. Make Up For Ever #14 — soft peach
  4. NARS Sex Appeal — pale peach
  5. MAC Melba — dirty peach-brown with a matte finish

What’s your favorite peach blush?

Giorgio Armani #4 Antique Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil

Giorgio Armani #4 Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil ($27.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as an “antique gold.” It’s a muted yellow gold with bronze-brown tones, so it appears a little brighter than true antique gold but not extremely brassy either. Surprisingly, it reads differently to these gold eyeliners. This kind of color does an excellent job of bringing out the warmth in eyes, especially if you have green or hazel-hued peepers. The color coverage is fairly opaque in one pass, which is always nice.
