Shiseido Rouge Rouge Lipstick in Sweet Desire, Real Ruby and Bloodstone Review and Swatches



These are super pigmented, yet light and perhaps not fully opaque (but so pigmented it's hard to tell).

Sweet Desire is a soft pink nude.  Real Ruby seems to have an undertone that switches between warm and cool (peach) and is a medium red.  Bloodstone is a deep cooler (burgundy undertone) red with micro shimmer and a lovely shine.

I adore these.




Laura Mercier Fall in Love Face Illuminator Review and Swatches


A pink rose gold
A deep slightly golden bronze
A true but not too yellow gold
And a silvery champagne pink
The formula is slightly metallic and these are very pigmented, perhaps too much so for some.  The palette is small and leans warm overall.




Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Rosa and Flirt Matte Lipstick Review


So lovely!
A soft pastel peony pink (Rosa) and a warm bright red (flirt).  The formula is that D&G pigmented, smooth, creaming and long wearing glimpse of perfection.



Dolce & Gabbana Goddess Classic Cream Lipstick Review and Swatches


One of my new favorites.  A pink peach nude with an amazing finish.  It glows, in a good way.  Stunning lipstick.




Kat Von D Serpentina Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches


These jewel tones are inconsistent but when they work, they're lovely.  I especially like the blue, green and golds.

Chanel Feu Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick Review and Swatches



Beautiful red orange, more than an orange red.

This lipstick from the Chanel Rouge 1 collection is a little brighter, less opaque and less matte than the other Rouge Allures in this set.  It's just so pretty.
