Part two of the Chanel Glossimer experiment, and while I might not have converted into a Chanel-gloss-only kind of gal, I definitely wouldn’t pass them up when offered them! The six up for review this time around are Pin-up, Constellation, Equinox, Scintillantes, Sundress, and Sungold. Quick summary? Sungold is one of my favorite glossimers I’ve tried to date, while Pin-up gives me a great barely-there pale, pink pout.

Temptalia Asks You

What kind of makeup do you wear to work/school? Do you have any rules or restrictions?  Do you break the rules or follow them?

At school, there are no restrictions or anything, BUT since very few around me wear much noticeable makeup, and I often do not have the time (or simply do not want to wake up to make the time, ha!) to do a full face, I’m usually found in minimal makeup at school.

As far as I’m concerned, spring has sprung, because I’m diving head-first into all of the tantalizing spring collections launched. Dior’s Flower Blossom collection is no exception, with its flirty, fun springtime colors in pastels and feminine hues. I haven’t tried everything there is to be had from it, of course, but I played with one of the most gorgeous quints I have ever laid eyes on (Pink May), discovered a gorgeous my-lips-but-better-color im Amber Camera (and Brown Close-Up is surprisingly lovely), found a great lid contour color in Flirty Brown, and a darling pink highlighter in Blooming Pink. I really wish I could have had tried out the Flower Blossom palette, as well as the Spring Bouquet quint. Maybe next time ;)
