Dior 5 Couleurs Garden Edition 441 Garden Pastels ~ Swatches, Photos, Review

I was lucky enough to win this beautiful piece of eye candy from Adventures In Makeup. If you haven't checked out her blog yet then please do. I love her taste and keen eye for great products. The Dior 5 Couleurs Garden Edition Couture Eyeshadow Palette in 441 Garden Pastels is not something I would have splurged on myself. I don't tend to care for the sheer, shiny formula of the Dior quints. This palette is so incredibly gorgeous that had I seen it in person I may just have been tempted though and I remember being first tempted

Ellis Faas Spring 2012 Set ~ Creamy Eyes E106, Light E304, Milky Lips L207 ~ Swatches, Photos, Review

I have been long tempted by the beautiful shades and innovative approach of Ellis Faas Cosmetics. It has been a couple years now that I have been resisting the urge to purchase in fear of developing another unhealthy brand addiction. Well I fear my reservations were well grounded as my finally caving and ordering the Ellis Faas Spring 2012 Set may have just created a monster. I don't know if I'm a fan of the bullet pen style packaging but I sure am a fan of the goodness inside. What I love about this set as it gave me the

Lise Watier Spring 2012 Aquarella Collection Euphorbia Nail Lacquer – Swatches and Review

Today I have for you my final installment in my reviews of the beautiful Lise Watier Spring 2012 Collection Aquarella. I reviewed the eye products here, lip products here, and the Bronzing Duo here.Euphorbia Nail Lacquer ($14) is a delightful purple cream. It is a beautiful shade for spring yet deep enough I didn't feel totally ridiculous wearing it around in December while testing it out. Application was really nice. It was opaque in two coats and applied really evenly. The polish was glossy and lasted really well. On day two or

Lise Watier Spring 2012 Aquarella Bronzing Powder Duo – Swatches and Review

The Bronzing Powder Duo ($32) from Lise Watier's Spring 2012 Aquarella Collection is a work of art. The beautiful limited edition compact encases a deeper shade of bronzer that is adorned with a flower in a lighter shade. Both shades have a delicate shimmer and can be used separately or together. I loved that I could use them separately to achieve a contoured effect. The powder is soft and well pigmented and even on my fair skin it was very easy to work with to obtain a luminous golden glow on my skin that still looked

Lise Watier Aquarella Quartet, Folie d’Iris Couleur Folle and Violet Waterproof Liner – Swatches & Review

I've chosen to first introduce you to some of the eye products from the gorgeous Lise Watier Aquarella Collection for Spring 2012. Aquarella is a breathtaking collection inspired by the soft pastel shades of spring flowers. It offers "fresh and bright colours in celebration of the return of spring".
