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.

YSL 214 Wood on Fire and 217 Nude Trouble The Mats Lipstick Review and Swatches

This formula is a pigmented matte with a touch of sheen.  Truly beautiful lipsticks.

214 Wood on Fire.  A slightly warm pink peach coral nudish shade.
217 Nude Trouble.  A soft strawberry pink.  It reminds me of the holiday 2015 Rouge G from Guerlain.

Left to right, 217 and 214.

Burberry Runway Highlight Palette Fall 2016 Review and Swatches

This highlighter is a white true gold.  Not too warm, and not too cool.  Great shade and a subtle (not pore highlighting metallic) formula.  The silver overlay is stunning in pan but transfers as chunky glitter on the face.  I'm not a fan but it does wear off.

Look at how beautiful it is!!!

Kevyn Aucoin Lipstick in Bloodroses, Sireedan and Thelmadora Review and Swatches

These are stunning.  Such a lovely sheen to the formula, and the shades are beautiful.  Really special and not like other brands (it's in the finish).

Sireedan is a pink based nude (L)
Thelmadora is a warmer nude (I am obsessed with this one: M)
Bloodrose is a deep, cool blackened red.

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.
