Dior Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer Review & Swatches

I don't know if there is any other category of cosmetics that sends my heart as a flutter as highlighters. My facial structure certainly doesn't do them justice, but there is something about beholding a new highlighter for the first time that is just so awe inspiring. The new Dior Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer Shimmering Sculpting Powder in 001 ($68 CAD) is a highlighter that most certainly takes your breath away. The powder formula is exquisite. There is absolutely no powder kick up and it has a silky smooth texture. Not a

Dior Flash Luminizer Radiance Booster Pen Review

The Dior Flash Luminizer Radiance Booster Pen ($52 CAD/$40 US) is available in a range of regular shades as well as two pearly shades. The "regular" shades, as I've decided to call them, are meant to apply under or over foundation to lightly conceal, while offering a subtle brightening effect by diffusing light in a similar vein to the YSL Touch Eclat. They also are promoted as filling in lines and wrinkles. The shades I have are too dark for me to properly test out but I would love to hear your thoughts if you've tried these. The

Dior Fall 2016 Quints Review | Parisian Sky and Capital of Light

The Dior Fall 2016 Skyline Collection 5 Couleurs Skyline Palettes ($ US/$73 CAD) have some of the most intricate and beautiful embossments I've ever seen. The pattern in an interpretation of the architectural structure of the Eiffel Tower. I don't usually have too hard of a time digging my brush in and destroying beautiful cosmetic embellishments but this time I had a genuine struggle. Just look at how beautiful and detailed this is! Being so finely detailed it takes very little to mar it's beauty. I got over it though! There are

Dior Fall 2016 Skyline Collection Nails | Minimal & Skyline Swatches

The Dior Fall 2016 Skyline Collection Dior Vernis ($33 CAD) shades are an expression of opposites. 112 Minimal is a pale beige with very fine tonal shimmer. 848 Skyline is a vampy, yet elegant, red brown hue. A perfect fall shade. Both of these applied beautifully and looked opaque and even in two coats. I adore the wide, curved Dior Vernis brush. It makes application effortless. Both shades are limited edition. The collection hits counters August 1st, 2016. Follow Perilously Pale via Twitter | Pinterest | Instagram |

Pur Strobe-Highlight Palettes Review  - 5

Pur Moonlight Glow and Sun-Kissed Glow Strobe/Highlight Palettes Review & Swatches

After my love affair with the new Pur Bronzer I should have known that I would fall head over heels for the Pur Strobe/Highlight Palettes ($42 CAD/$34 US) released at the same time. I'm not usually a fan of cream bronzers because I find that they can disturb the foundation they are applied over. Plus usually creams don't work well with powders, so if you apply the highlight before you set your makeup with a powder you end up dulling the glow. If you try and apply the cream highlight after setting your makeup you end up just

Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches

Behold the otherworldly Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow Palette ($70 CAD/$49 US). The Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadows are like nothing I've tried before. The Moondust shadows seem to feed off lower sources of light for the most gorgeous 3D metallic effect, looking even more impressive in low, artificial, or indirect light than direct sunlight. They somehow look flatter in direct natural light. The reflective quality of these eyeshadows is a result of Urban Decay's "super-secret" technology and the result really is breathtaking.

Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics Illuminating Tint Body, Lunar Dust, Blush, and Lipstick

My first introduction to the Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics line was with their wonderful Contour Palette. I have been playing with some more products from the vegan and cruelty free luxury natural makeup brand and I've continued to be impressed by the beautiful formulas and wearable shades. The new Youngblood Mineral Illuminating Tint Body ($37.50 US) comes in a generous 175ml lock pump bottle and gives the most lovely, natural sunkissed glow to the skin. It blends in to a very natural tint of colour on my fair skin. My favourite

Pur Glow Together Gradient Matte-Shimmer Bronzer Review

Behold this absolutely stunning bronzer. This is truly one of the most beautiful bronzers I've ever seen. The Pür Glow Together Gradient Matte-Shimmer Bronzer ($34 US/$42 CAD) is a jumbo sized bronzer that offers the best of both worlds with three matte strips at the top and three delicate shimmer shades on the bottom. The generous 17g size of the palette allows you to only pic up the matte shades if you desire, just the shimmer shades for a more intense glow, or blend the whole thing together for a naturally luminous bronzed

NUDESTIX Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balm Review |Haven, Posh, Rebel, Pulse

The newest incarnation of the NUDESTIX Lip + Cheek pencil is the new NUDESTIX Gel Color Lip + Cheek Balm ($24 US/$ CAD). I was first introduced to these when we received one at Generation Beauty and I was instantly hooked. I couldn't resist trying it right away (I usually hold out until I can take pictures) and didn't stop using it the rest of the day. I have been loving the new gel formula and glossy finish. I apologize that Posh is not pristine in the following photos, but I do not regret my love affair with this new formula. I

Sephora Collection Summer 2016 Newness

I admit I can be a snob when it comes to "store brand" products. That's why when I finally tried the Sephora Collection brand a couple of years ago I was completely blown away by the quality. I guess I should have know that if Sephora, THE makeup store, was going to release their own products, they would have to be good. If you haven't explored the Sephora Collection brand I highly recommend you do. The enormous selection of products and shades can be a bit overwhelming but there are so, so many gems to be found. Let's take a

Paul & Joe Come Sail Away Summer 2016 Collection

The limited edition Paul & Joe Come Sail Away Summer 2016 Collection is all about relaxed beaches and nautical themes. One of the things that really makes the Parisian born brand stand out, aside from their quality products, is their absolutely adorable packaging. Let's take a look at a couple of pieces from the collection. The Paul & Joe Silky Pressed Powder in Compact ($48 CAD) is a beautifully presented pressed translucent powder that comes with a cute puff and a lovely drawstring satin pouch. The lid of the compact
