I love Charlotte Gainsbourg! The Kohliners are all really beautiful shades. I tend to not buy these twist-up eye pencils any more though because I feel like I use them up so quickly.

…well, that wasn’t very clear…I mean the light side of Church Street and the dark side of Rue Allent (the dark side of Church Street looks awfully patchy and uneven).

For some reason, this reminds me of that Sarah Moon collection from the holidays, lots of red lips and smoky eyes. Oooh, that dark olive green eyeliner looks pretty

Hmm, I will be super curious to see which, if any, dupes exist for that blackened green eyeshadow. Because that smokey eye you did using the duos was killer! And quite different than the average black smokey eye we usually see, too.
I also like London Clinic Matte Velvet, but have a feeling I’ve got dupes already.

Nancy T – where is this smokey eye look? (maybe I shouldn’t look – it’s her looks that always, ALWAYS get me buying stuff; even if she gives it a not-so-hot rating, she always does these amazing and desirable looks). I can’t see the eye look anywhere….

Thanks, Christine. I miss these looks a lot and generally only catch them when they’re in the reviews. This one is very pretty but how I wish the 2 shades I like had been paired in one duo. Oh well…I’ll wait for your review and the dupes as I’m sure I’ve got at least one (if not more) for each shade.

We are working on a way for me to showcase some of the looks’ posts (both mine and readers’) on the main blog, so hopefully, you’ll see some of them! Most of the looks are associated with a product, so you probably aren’t missing them in the end! I’m trying to be better about getting everything up, so I usually add the look shortly after editing photos so I can still remember placement!

Charlotte Gainsbourg is a draw for sure. Not into the multiple sticks, but London Clinic, the green liner (I love a true olive green liner!) and Rue Allent seem worth checking out. Looking forward to any reviews you do.

Ok, Francois, nice liners (conspicuous lack in stash, never trusted going for kohl liners formula.). Improved, right? Now work on the shadows, esp. the mattes. Real red multiples. Yeah. Will try mine (depotted and refrigerated) to see if my skin still eats/neutralizes them. Blindfold is a cheerful S/S red. As to the other lips, wish they were glides, not tints. Charlotte’s mum, Jane Birkin, is as big an icon as she is….or was, anyway. Who has an Hermes bag style named after her? Right up there with Grace Kelly. Hits and misses, overall, but I like the colors. The gray and green pencils, especially.

Eagerly anticipating your review. The green eyeliner is calling my name and we all know what that means…I’ll buy it. Lol

So much pretty in this collection! The lip tints look promising and love the lip pencils too and that green liner is beautiful

I really like how the Multiple Tints look, totally my kind of sheer pop of color for the cheeks! And London Clinic, so pretty.
