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…

FOTD: Dior Tutu. Loads of Pink.

I feel like I had to channel my non existent inner Barbie when wearing this palette. Tutu is  a very pink palette, and you can refer to the swatches in my previous review here. If you’ve been a long time reader, you’d know I’m not a fan of sweet girlie stuff like pinks. I’ve always prefer darker shadows. I’m a smokey eye kinda person.

As I was applying these shadows, I got flashbacks of all those Barbie cartoons both my daughters watch. I still stand firm in thinking that if you have flatter eyes like me, you’d need to use darker shadows and dark liner for more definition. However for this post, I’m using the colours only from this palette, and with black liner. Don’t my eyes look smaller for some reason? I thought they look a bit puffy too :-)

Tastebuds: Some Recipes I Found And LOVE!

I know there are many foodies among you, and I want to share some recipes I found online that I tried and absolutely loved (and still love!). It’s scary to try new recipes sometimes, especially when they didn’t suit your taste. These are a few recipes for easy baking. If you haven’t baked before, you’d still be able to make them. These are easy! I’ve made these a few times already, and some were even requested by friends and family.
