Giorgio Armani #1 Easy Chic Face & Eye Palette

Giorgio Armani #1 Easy Chic Face & Eye Palette ($88.00 for 0.43 oz.) is a glossy black compact that features a light face powder to illuminate skin “with the signature ‘Armani Glow'” and three eyeshadows–two matte shades with “intense hues” and a satin-finished illuminator. This is one of two palettes released for fall; the second one seems to be a little warmer (from the descriptions, as I haven’t seen it).

MAC Full Lash Curler Review & Photos

MAC Full Lash Curler ($20.00) is easy-to-use, doesn’t pinch, and yields a soft, natural curl that stays. I’ve been using this for the past few weeks when I’ve gone to curl my lashes, and I think it’s very comparable to shu uemura’s curler in shape, feel, and use. If you have smaller eyes, you might consider MAC’s Half Lash Curler. This particular version of the curler is all black, because it is/was part of the Carine Roitfeld collection. I think the all-black coloring makes it look rather sleek (and reminiscent of Chanel’s). It came with one additional curling pad.

Dior Lady (039) Diorific Lipstick

Dior Lady (039) Diorific Lipstick ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is lightened coral-red with a natural sheen. And yes, it does look a lot like Dior Diva, which is just slightly darker. Edward Bess Midnight Bloom is redder. Guerlain Habit Rouge is darker. Guerlain Rouge Sensuel is sheerer and a smidgen lighter. MAC Cockney has golden shimmer. Chanel Cambon is a bit less warm.
