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. Dior also dries more powdery and feels less wet – and let it be known that the Chanel ones are NOT wet either. Anyway, here they are, and here’s a look I created with these 2.

Some Dangerous Places I Want To Share

I live in a place where I don’t get many beauty brands. I also like to browse beauty products in peace, without someone breathing down my neck or giving me glances when I swatch everything in the store. This post is for those who are like me.

Internet has made shopping borderless to a certain extent. Many online sites now ship worldwide, some for free and some for a fee. Blogging and exposure to more beauty blogs have opened up my beauty world to endless possibilities and insatiable curiosity. Please read on ONLY if you have a strong sense of self control. Please don’t blame me when your credit card bill suddenly hit the roof.

My First YSL Beaute Experience Which Is Not So Glossy: Glossy Stain in Corail Fauve (12)

My very first YSL, and it’s a lip product. This was gifted to me by a dear friend. I read some reviews and most of them seem positive. I’ve never been a fan of lip glosses but this touts to be a gloss and stain, another first for me. The shade I have is a bright coral and… in short, I don’t love it. Wanna know why?

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.
