Urban Decay Rollergirl Palette Look

LOVE! this palette.  The three neutrals look amazing together, but due to popular request, I had to incorporate Woodstock somehow! 🙂

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Greed as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249.  Apply Verve eyeshadow to the inner third of the eye with the 239.  Next, apply Suspect eyeshadow to the middle third of the eye, going above the crease.  Apply Darkhorse eyeshadow just above the crease and into the outer corner with the 222.  With the edge of the 239, apply Woodstock eyeshadow to the outer two-thirds of the crease.  Use Trench eyeshadow to highlight the brow bone and diffuse the crease color with the 217.  Apply Whiskey liner on the lower lash line.  Finish by sweeping lashes with Inimitable Intense mascara.

For cheeks, apply Giggly blush on the apples of the cheeks and pat towards the temple with fingers.

For lips, apply Cherry Blossom for a complementing lip.

Coco Chanel revolutionized the way women dressed by designing looks that were elegant, yet surprisingly comfortable. Her vision: simple, uncomplicated silhouettes in modern fabrics to lend a new ease and modernity to a woman’s wardrobe.

Today, CHANEL carries on that vision with new ROUGE COCO SHINE Hydrating Sheer Lipshine, the exciting next chapter in the evolution of the iconic modern crème lip colour. Lips are effortlessly dressed in the most elegant shades, with the most comfortable wear.

Fresh, sheer and luminous, ROUGE COCO SHINE provides beautiful, lasting moisturizing shine in a water-light texture. The formula glides on for easy application, and a unique HYDRATENDRE complex hydrates and softens lips, giving them a healthier and fuller appearance.

The emblematic black metal case of ROUGE COCO has been specially refined. In its new interpretation, the ROUGE COCO SHINE packaging reflects the graceful codes of the iconic brand with a slimmer case and a new interior design to protect the innovative formula.

ROUGE COCO SHINE is available in a complete range of shades, from delicate beiges to dazzling berries, with hints of shimmer to enhance a glossy finish.  Each of the 18 shades is linked to the world of Coco Chanel. . . each a source of inspiration or influence that profoundly impacted her life.

Guerlain Rouge Automatique Swatches, Photos, Review (Champs Elysees 165)

Guerlain Champs-Elysees (165) Rouge Automatique Lipstick

Guerlain Champs-Elysees (165) Rouge Automatique Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a raspberry pink-red with a naturally semi-glossy finish and soft fuchsia micro-shimmer. Rouge Automatique is a new lipstick range slated for an April release with 25 shades (all permanent), and each shade is named after various Guerlain creations and places.

I wanted to try a deeper/darker shade first to test out the wear (and also to get started off on the right foot–with a more decadent color). I put Champs-Elysees through an all-day test that included drinking Starbucks and an Italian dinner of calamari fritti and fettuccine alfredo (oil + cream = known enemies of long-wearing lip color). It held up spectacularly! By the time I got home from dinner, I had been wearing it for six hours and didn’t feel the need to reapply. Some of the glossiness wore off, but there was still some reflective sheen, and the color was semi-opaque around the inner area of the lower lip, but overall, it looked remarkably well.

It does not have any of the usual hallmarks of a long-wearing lip color–it’s not clingy, drying, or matte. Instead, it is creamy (but thin, not thick at all), and feels a bit like lip balm when initially applied. It’s moisturizing, too, which is something one wouldn’t expect from a long-wearing lip color. It is amazing how lip color technology has improved so much in the past few years that clingy, drying, and painful-to-wear long-wearing products are being phased out. Deeper/richer shades like Champs-Elysees last six to eight hours, while lighter shades last four to five hours.

Rouge Automatique is really comfortable to wear, and the color range is definitely reminiscent (will be reviewing more shades soon) of the higher priced Rouge G line-up. The Rouge Gs wear a touch better and are slightly more moisturizing than the four shades I’ve tried from the Rouge Automatique line, but the formulas are certainly similar. Guerlain lipsticks are violet-scented but I found the scent rather subtle with these.
