Chanel Bel Ami Rouge Coco Shine

Chanel Bel Ami (66) Rouge Coco Shine ($32.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a semi-sheer plum-berry that looks a little rosy, little brown-based when swatched, but on my lips, it appears more like a plum with a hint of red and silver shimmer. The color coverage is semi-sheer, but it applies evenly and smoothly, and it ends up looking like I’m not even wearing lipstick.  It’s a little redder compared to MAC Capricious, while it is plummier than Cle de Peau #117 (and sheerer). Rimmel Burgundy is a few shades darker.

Dior Smoking Blue (001) Blue Tie Palette

Dior Smoking Blue (001) Blue Tie Palette ($70.00 for 0.19 oz.) is new and limited for fall, and it contains a mix of silver and navy blue eyeshadows along with a pink lipgloss. The compact itself is metal and includes a full-size mirror when you open it. The gloss has a metal lid that you can open, which is nice, because it helps to minimize any cross-contamination of the eyeshadow powder into the gloss.

Thierry Mugler Feeling Rouge Unique Lipstick

Thierry Mugler Feeling Rouge Unique Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “fruity pink with light transparency.” It’s more than just plain ol’ pink. At first glance, this seemed like a color that would be easy to describe, but I found it more difficult when I went to do so! It’s a lightened coral-pink-red with gold and pink micro-shimmer and a semi-frosted sheen. It almost looks coral, but then it seems dominated by pink, and then it’s darker than just pink. The color coverage is semi-opaque, and the color deposited fairly evenly across the lips without much effort.

MAC Eyeshadow Swatches – Neutrals (Part 1)

Eyeshadows like Honesty and All That Glitters–tend to have chunkier textures with glitter fall out.  I will buy a new All That Glitters, even though mine was brand new as of a month ago, since many of you say I have a bad batch, but please give me some time to do so. Shades like Bisque, Brule, and Blanc Type are very light, and I know that on me Blanc Type photographs ashy (on me) when I’ve used it as a highlighter. Patina is a fun shade, because it’s almost like a neutral duochrome, and I couldn’t think of a real dupe for it.
