Anastasia Beverly Hills Moonchild Glow Kit Review and Swatches


I adore this palette.  It's more pigmented than it looks in photos but the shades are cool and hauntingly lovely.  Yes, not everyone will want to glow green, blue or purple but for those who do this palette is a lovely option.  Slightly metallic, it can emphasizes pores.




Charlotte Tilbury Scent of a Dreamer Perfume Review


This fragrance evokes old Hollywood glamour, a French parfumerie and a slightly bohemian beauty.  Sadly, it also didn't work so well on my skin and I couldn't pick up all of the elements listed.  It isn't bad by any means.  Rather, it's a very commercial scent that some people will love.  On my skin, it just didn't work so well.  Too bad as I adore the brand.

YSL Vinyl Cream Lipstick in 401 Vinyle and 402 Remix Review and Swatches


401 is a blue based pink red.
402 is a stunning medium semi bright coral/orange red.

The formula is a little more lipstick like in appearance than past like YSL products but the sheen is still there.  The applicator is amazing and makes the process easier.  It has a pointed end and point for lining.  And the product wears beautifully, with no bleeding.  It stains slightly and has a fruity scent.

Really lovely.  Great shades and formula.




Chanel Illusion D'Ombre Eyeshadow in Rouge Brule and Rouge Contraste Review


Brule is a stunning red copper, slightly metallic.  Contraste is a red based satin matte deeper brown (that can be blended out).  These are lovely.

Chanel Powder Blush in Rouge Profond Review and Swatches


I'm never sure which blush to use with red lipstick.  This one is perfect (and made for reds@).  A warm, pigmented red, touch of pink, touch (barely) of nude brown.  Micro shimmer that shows up in sunlight.  It's darker than in the product photo but my camera, usually great for these sorts of photos, couldn't capture it.  The swatch is accurate.
