Project Make A Dent #2

It’s been a while since I followed up with this Project Make A Dent. If you missed the first one, or if you don’t know what this is about, please click here where I explained it. For the first project, I cheated by using up all products close to finishing. I’m happy to report they were all gone in a couple of months. So now, I want to pick some other stuff, either to use up, or to really make a dent in it.

New Dior 5 Couleur Eye Shadow Swatches

I went to have a look at all the Dior 5 Couleur Eye Shadow palettes the other day and a few caught my eye. I took swatches of all the testers they have, but they don’t have the Bar palette. I guess it’s no biggie, since I’ve been reading lots of reviews on this particular palette anyway :-) The pictures are taken under fluorescent lighting, so it’s a little cooler. I tried correcting the colours as best I could, but they’ll give you a rough idea of what the colours look like. I’ll also give you my first impressions of the palettes, feeling them only with my fingers, so the brief reviews might not be too accurate. The colours are swatched dry on unprimed skin, clockwise from top left, ending with the centre shade. Without much ado…

Review: Clinique All About Shadow Galaxy and Eye Primer

Clinique has done it again. I’m super impressed with the eye primer. Yes, I’m telling you now, if you have oily lids, this one really helps your eye shadow stay. Look, I’m not that kind of person who beats around the bush, and say, “Why don’t you read all my ramblings and before you fall asleep, I’ll then tell you if it’s good or not”. I think I’m known for my straight talking so let’s just keep at that and not be coy, eh? Who’s with me?

Review: Bobbi Brown x L’Wren Scott Amnesia Rose Palette

Bobbi Brown teamed up with L’Wren Scott for a collaboration which is the Amnesia Rose Collection. Inspired by the amnesia rose grown by L’Wren at her Loire Valley chateau, the limited edition Amnesia Rose Collection was unveiled at L’Wren’s Spring 2014 Fashion Show during London Fashion Week. Now, it is available to us. I have with me the Amnesia Rose palette, and I love the packaging.
