Sunday Stash Shopping #14

I didn’t know what I wanted to post this week, but I thought I’d play with creams. I’ve been using quite a bit of Dior and Chanel cream eye shadows, and the 2 colours I love to pair together are Dior Meteore (golden bronze) and Chanel Illusoire (light silvery purple taupe). There have been differing opinions about the textures of these 2 cream shadows, and when I compared them side by side, touch by touch, Dior definitely feels bouncier while my Illusoire feels harder in the pot.

Trialing Nuxe Cleansers

When I bought the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse, I bought this set of deluxe sample sized cleansers too. I wanted to try this brand, and these travel sized bottles are great just for that purpose. Enough for me to have a good feel of how they perform, and not too big that I’d waste the whole bottle if I didn’t like it. I think it retailed for about RM50 – or thereabouts.
