Bobbi Brown just launched its Bridal Collection, and I was sent the Luxe Eye Palette (RM240). Before I opened the palette, I was already guessing what the colours are. I thought it would be a palette of soft neutral colours, less shimmer, and some taupes. Well, I wasn’t all wrong… but some shades did surprise me.
My makeup ban was going well. I was resisting the urge to purchase any colours despite the fact that there were temptations everywhere. The beauty blogs that I read don’t help, and I really shouldn’t have gone to check out Suqqu when I was in Bangkok. It was fine when I was just browsing, but as soon as I started swatching, I was a goner. Sumiredama is a limited edition palette, and the complex shades, the duo chromes and different nuances of a single shade killed my ban.
I’ve been wanting to try this for the longest time. Clinique launched their Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes a few months ago, and it has finally reached our shores. I had my expectations before trying these out, because I’ve only read good reviews. However, those reviews are mostly by bloggers living overseas, with weather less hot and humid than ours. So, how did it fare here?
If you didn’t know, my first makeup love was Bobbi Brown. I dabbled with the now discontinued Kanebo T’estimo and then I discovered Bobbi Brown. It all started with a foundation. Then, the cult favourite gel liner (my first was Ink Black) then the pot rouges and then I had to have myself a neutral eye palette. I’m a neutral fiend, so when they came out with the palette system a few years back, I was totally sucked in. Mine is nothing exciting, given I was still a newbie at makeup (before blogging became part of my life) but I’d still like to show you.
Today I will be talking about 2 items sent to me a while ago. A Diorsnow edition eye palette Frost Bloom and a face powder called Diorsnow Light Reveal Colour Correcting Powder in 001 Crystal Rose. Diorsnow skin care is one of my favourites, and it is a whitening / brightening range available in Asia. The makeup launched on a yearly basis also promotes just that. A brightening effect for the face. So, face powders are to illuminate, and eye shadows are usually pale, sheer and irridescent. It’s the snowy effect after all
