Hope you are all having a great (sunny) weekend!
As I don't really have anything particularly new to review I thought I'd post a FOTD from our family sunday lunch (which was at Frankie and Benny's because the carvery was heaving!) and sadly a bit of a rant/ramble...
Camera close up=Moody face ;)
Camera far away=Happy face ;)
Products used :
NARS Sheer Glow foundation 'Deauville'
W7 Bronzer 'Africa'
VIE Skin dew highlighter
NARS Lipgloss 'Scandal'
I was expecting a hot peach/coral shopping online=disappoining
But I'm liking this non the less :)
Applied sheer (and grumpy by the looks of it hehe)
(iphone)Swatch,there is no glitter in this product,its on my hand for some reason
Chanel Ombres de perlees palette
Maybelline One by One Volum' express mascara
MAC Powerpoint eye pencil 'bordeauxline'
As you can see It has been given a pretty fair trial,not sure what the specks are on the mirror??
I have waited a while to give a review of the 'ombres de perlees' palette which is Chanel's Limited edition spring 2011 palette,when I first bought it,it was Love at first swatch,and as you can see I've had a fair bit of use out of it.
The reason I am disappointed is that compared to the first swatch,where I fell for the colours,which are incredibly beautiful and swatched like butter on hot toast,I just cannot seem to get the same effect on my eyes,no matter which way I use them.The colour payoff is incredibly disappointing.
VERY heavily swatched,the colours are beautiful but sadly do not apply to my eye in the same way :(
The shadows are all pearlised and go on very sheer even the darker colours need a really good building up to get a slightly strong colour.
I have tried applying them with every make and model of brush possible,my fingers,I even used the sponge applicators which were included!!I've used them wet and dry,as a base for other shadows and layered on top of my other shadows(which has proved to be the most successful)....Nothing makes these stand out for me!
I also find that my eyelids feel dry after a few hours wear.
I'm gutted about this,especially as I paid over £30 for what I was expecting to be the HG eyeshadow palette!!
On the eye So dull!!! Dammit!!
I intend to find a way of getting the best out of the ombres palette,maybe I just have weird eyes??
If not it'll have to be ebay for this baby :'(
Has anybody else got any disappointing products to rant about?
