Dior Holiday Eye Palette - Celebration Collection Swatches, Review, & Pictures

I got this from Sephora FFSale. The original price is $46, which is not pricey at all for a Dior palette(Those five-color palettes cost $59!). This palette contains four colors and a double ended brush.  

The packaging is really classic and Dior-ish.

I don't like they use a cheap stick at the back. I feel like it should be print on the cover or something.

The inside-

Take off the clear plastic-

The first color is actually khaki tan shimmer(1.7g) .
The second color is bronze shimmer(1.95g).
The third color is a white highlight color with a lot of shimmer(sparkling ivory).  It looks crazy but it looks really good as a highlight because this color is not pigmented once you put on your eyes(1.71g).
The forth color is a chocolate brown cream liner(1.65g).
why do all the color have different weight?? But they all convert to 0.05oz.

The colors are really typical for a everyday look. I actually used the double-ended brush(the brush side not the sponge applicator) to apply the cream liner, it poke my eyes really bad! I love all the colors, the first two colors are really pigmented. The third color is good for highlight inner corner and brow bone. It looks sheer and chalky from the pan, but it applies really smooth and fine.
The cream liner color creases. Yea, I don't know why. I have another palette(Dior '5 Couleurs Lift' Eyeshadow Palette 642 Lifting Amber, Review is Here), the cream base also creases really bad. Overall it is a ok palette. If you like Dior's packaging, this is definitely a must have. If you are not too crazy about Dior's eyeshadows and don't want cream liner that creases really bad, then skip this one.

I used CHANEL Rouge Allure Laque Ming #76 on my lips :)

Thanks For Looking! Happy Halloween!

FOTD - Signature Look For Fall

I love fall! Normally I don't like natural eye look, but for some reason I am in love with natural looks for this fall :) I always like to use colorful eyeshadows with a wing out cat eye, some times go for smokey eyes, but I have been wearing natural for a long time already.

Apply NARS Pro-Prime Multi-Protect Primer(1.) with fingers.
Apply Revlon Age Defying with DNA Advantage Cream Makeup(2.) with fingers. I figured using fingers to apply foundation gives you a really natural look!
Laura Geller Balance-n-Brighten Foundation(3.)with Face Secrets Bronzer Brush(4.).
Urban Decay Afterglow Glide-on Cheek Tint Bang(6.)with Paris Presents: Ultimate Face Contoured Cheek Brush(7.).
Wet n Wild coloricon Bronzer in Princess(8.) With MAC 168. This bronzer is really shimmery, but when you blend it out it doesn't look too bad.
Too Faced Refreshing Eye-Brighting Pencil(5.). Applied on my forehead, under eye area, and in the center of my nose.

Eye brow:
Buck in Urban Decay Naked Palette(1.). Applied with Benefit Hard Angle Brush(2.).
Eye Shadow:
I used E.L.F Mineral Eyeshadow Primer(14.) to prime my eyelids.
From the I ❤ Matte Palette, I used the light brown for highlight(3.). Applied with Sonia Kashuk Synthetic Concealer Brush(8.) 
I applied the orange brown color(4.) all over the lids up to the highlight color. Applied with E.L.F. All-over Eyeshadow Brush(7.). With the same brush apply the dark brown color(5.) all over the lids. Dip the SEPHORA COLLECTION Classic Blending Eye Brush #29 (10.) in to the orange color and the dark brown color to blend out on the crease, the use MAC 222(9.) do the same step.
Eye liner:
Bobbi Brown Gel liner(12.) to ling the waterline. Applied with Hakuhodo K005(13.).
The use the black color(6.) line out the top and bottom lash line. Applied with Applied by Sonia Kashuk Bamboo Chic Flat Shader(11.)
I used Lancome Super- Enhancing Mascara Base(17.).
For top lashes I used three coats of Helena Rubinstein Lash Queen Sexy Blacks WP Mascara(15.).
For top lashes I used MAC False Lashes(16.).
I cut Kiss ever pro lashes 03(18.) into fiver pieces, but I only glue about three pieces. The lash glue I used is DUO Eyelash adhesive.
For lips I just used a lip balm.

OK so this is my signature look. I love to cut my bangs like that, I had that hair style for like longer than life time! 
Actually I copied my hair from Emily the Strange ⇊⇊⇊⇊⇊⇊⇊⇊⇊⇊.

CHANEL Rouge Allure Laque Ming #76 Swatches, Pictures & Review

Happy Saturday every one :)
I got this from Nordstrom for $32 because I saw the swatches of a limited edition color called Empire. I think the packaging is really cute! But at the end I pick out this color...a baby rosy pink. I don't really wear lipgloss because it tries out my lip realllly quick and they never stay on all day. 

I remember I got this about three days ago and I've been wearing a lot! The texture is really moisturizing and rich. My lip is really dry, like I have to use some super moisture lip conditioner for 24/7. I applied this on dry lips(normally I don't. I always use a lip balm underneath any lipgloss or lipstick), and I didn't see any chipping dead skin or anything! This was like the first time I used a lip gloss and the color applied so evenly! Gosh I wish I discovered this earlier. This one last pretty long for a lip gloss, too. I worn about 4 hrs with eating and drinking. 

The only thing bad is ever time I tried to put back the applicator, the extra lip gloss will be stuck on the mouth of the tube(like the picture below). So every time I have to be super careful with it.

Thanks For Looking!

Nail Polish Swatches Round 1

I am trying to organizing all my polishes...yea I mean swatch all of them and keep they organized!
These are the polishes that I never swatched, or I swatched before but not good qualities. I ma still trying to figure out the best lighting, but so far I think using the flash is the best way to show the true colors(even better than natural sun light!).

I love this color because it is really pop! This is two coats.
Sally Hansen Caribbean Coral 36

I need more gold polishes...this is one of my favorite gold color I have in this collection. This color is not super pigmented, I applied about three coats.
Sally Hansen Gilty Pleasure  310

This is a dark grey with a jelly finish. For this color you don't need to apply two coats.
 Sally Hansen Grey Area 330

Really pretty red with some gold shimmer. I applied three coats.
 O.P.I. Congeniality Is My Middle Name

This color is a really pretty sky blue. It is pigmented enough for only applying one coat.
Sally Hansen Blue Me Away 04

Bright orange with Creme finish. This color is not pigmented at all! I applied about four coats.
 Wet n Wild Sunny Side Up

Three coats. A metallic silver with a lot of micro shimmer. The texture is not as good as the same color I have from Revlon.
 Debarah Lippmann Stardust

I don't like the texture, and the brush sucks. I got this one on sale so I guess no complain LOL. Three coats. Black under color with a lot of micro glitter(green, red, and gold).
 Sephora by O.P.I. Absinthe Makes The Heart

I love this color as a top color. It has different shapes of silver glitters in it.  You can definitely build up the glitter.
O.P.I. Crown Me Already 

Dark silver with a lot of shimmer! Two coats. Foil finish.
CHANEL Graphite 529

Thanks For Looking :):):)

What I got from Sephora FFSale?

I did a open box video for this, but I can't post it on the internet... because I look horrible in the video! Plus two kittens were playing at the background when I was talking, and my camera wasn't focusing...

I am soooo excited to get my package! I didn't get anything last year, so I kinda went crazy LOL. Most of the stuff that I been wanting for a longgggg time, I put in the shopping cart just wait til the FFSale. The only thing that sucks is I live in Tennessee, so we charge like 9.25% for me, the 20%off is just like a 20%off discount...but still better than nothing :)
