Sugarpill Chromalust ($12.00 for 0.19 oz.) recently launched seven new shades, and I have three of them to show you today: Birthday Girl (sweet princess pink with iridescent fuchsia sparkles), Darling (stunning teal loaded with iridescent turquoise star bursts), and Magentric (metallic deep magenta with a dazzling turquoise sheen).
Chromalusts are loose eyeshadows that are extremely soft and smooth because of how fine these loose powders are milled. The three shades featured in this post are vegan, for reference. They can be worn wet or dry, though I tend to prefer them wet as a base, but they do work nicely dry–though better over a stickier shadow base.
Peter Philips, Creative Director of Chanel Make Up used the following Chanel products to create the runway beauty looks:
Face: Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15, Poudre Universelle Libre Natural Finish Loose Powder, Eclat Lumiere Highlighting Face Pen, Correcteur Perfection Long Lasting Concealer
Eyes: Illusion d’Ombre in Epatant, Mirifique, and Fantasme (available July 2011), Le Crayon Yeux Precision Eye Definer in Khaki Platine (available July 2011), Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long Lasting Eyeliner in Ebene, Crayon Sourcils (available July 2011), and Inimitable Mascara in Noir
Lips: Le Crayon Levres Precision Lip Definer in Natural, Rouge Allure Velvet in La Furtive (available November 2011)
Nails: Le Vernis Nail Colour in Graphite (available July 2011)
Dolce & Gabbana Vibrant (#143) Lipgloss ($29.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a rich shade of darkened fuchsia raspberry with iridescent fuchsia-purple micro-shimmer. It delivers nearly opaque color, and it doesn’t settle into lip lines. I love how it is a mix of pink, red, and berry.
my thoughts on the formula: Dolce & Gabbana Lip Glosses are moisturizing, and they fade really well when they wear away. With this particular shade, I was able to get a solid four hours of wear. These glosses are heavily rose-scented but don’t seem to have any taste. With just 0.13 oz. in a tube (compared to 0.20 oz. for other high-end brands like Chanel, Guerlain, and YSL), these are pricey.
