Disney Jasmine Storylook Palette (by Sephora) (Part 1)

Disney Jasmine Storylook Palette ($55.00 for 0.79 oz.) contains both eyeshadows and cheek products all housed in a slide-out palette. I’ve split the review into two parts, and this one features the first ten eyeshadows (and so the second part will focus on the remaining five eyeshadows as well as the blush and bronzer).

Chanel Western Light Le Vernis Nail Colour

Chanel Western Light Le Vernis Nail Colour ($30.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “sophisticated shade of deep chocolate, burnished by a heart of pearly red.” It’s a deep, dark reddened brown with a dusting of reddish-burgundy shimmer. The shimmer is not the star here, so while visible at certain angles, gives it more of a reddened depth than sparkle.  China Glaze Midtown Magic is browner and has larger and more present shimmer. Rescue Beauty Lounge Au Chocolate is very similar in color but is a cream (no shimmer). Rescue Beauty Lounge Atame is a redder cream with no shimmer. MAC Gadabout Girl is slightly more burgundy and has no shimmer. Chanel Strong has a lot more of the red pearl, so it looks a bit redder/purpler in some lighting.

Disney Jasmine The Palace Jewel Compact Mirror (by Sephora) Review & Photos

Disney Jasmine The Palace Jewel Compact Mirror ($20.00) is just as well-done as the Cinderella compact mirror.  The moment you slip it out of its packaging, you can feel the heft and real weight of it, because it’s made out of metal.  It’s not flimsy, thin, or lightweight at all.  It’s cleverly designed, suits the theme of the collection, and functions well. It opens up and has a mirror on each side, and one mirror also has, “Shut your eyes and take a chance,” written on it.

philosophy Raspberry Passion Fruit Dreamsicle Shampoo, Shower Gel, & Bubble Bath Review, Photos

philosophy Raspberry Passion Fruit Dreamsicle Shampoo, Shower Gel, & Bubble Bath ($27.00 for 32 oz.) is described as a “sheer delight of ripe berries, tropical passion fruit, and sweet creaminess.” It smells like raspberries and cream with added sweetness that I felt really came from the “passion fruit” portion–it wasn’t sugary sweet, but a rounded sweetness that was mellow but noticeable.  It’s not fresh raspberries; it’s definitely sweeter than that, but as a general fan of all things raspberry, I liked it quite a bit.
