Dior Grand Bal False Eyelashes Quick Review & Photos

Dior Grand Bal False Eyelashes ($28.00/pair) come in two styles with two shades each. The first pair are adorned with either silver or gold crystals, while the second pair has three “pearls” on the outermost portion of the lash in either silver or gold.  Both styles are rather dramatic, as the first pair flares out with a wide, feathery look, while the second style is thicker, heavier-lidded.  These had good flex, bend, and can be trimmed easily.  Dior includes glue with each pair, and the glue didn’t take too long to become tacky, and it held the lash in place well.  I haven’t used these in a real look yet – only played with them on bare lids, so no pictures to share of them being worn at this time (hence, quick review).

Chanel Notorious Ombre Contrast / Sculpting Veil

Chanel Notorious Ombre Contrast / Sculpting Veil ($43.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “mauve-taupe.” It’s a mauve-tinged gray-brown–it is dominated by gray and has a very cool-toned feel. As a contour color, I couldn’t think of anything similar that I’ve come across. As an eyeshadow, there are a few shades that come (somewhat) close. MAC Cloudy Afternoon is lighter and frosted. bareMinerals Exhale is slightly less mauve. Urban Decay Bust is a touch darker and more shimmery. MAC Fashion Fix is less mauve. NARS Lhasa is more mauve and shimmery.
