Look: Hawaiian Dress Day @ School with Dior Purple Jazz Club

Please excuse the stupid silly look today…the whole outfit kinda sucks, but I gotta participate to show my school spirit you know?

I don’t like the Dior Jazz club palettes. They’re nothing special and there’s really only 2 shadow colors. Meh, not impressed. I already have a purple liner…and the “topcoat” is lame! I’m gonna try to take them back. What do you think (silly outfit aside)? The lip combo though…wowie! TDF! Sparkle for days :-) Made me stare at my lips all the way to school LOL!

Look & Review: Dior Amber Design Quint

I’m not a huge fan of Dior quints only because their pigmentation is usually too weak for my taste. The quality is great, but most of the time the colors muddy together on my lid.

That being said, I have very mixed feelings about this particular “quint” which I wouldn’t even say is a quint because it only has 4 eyeshadow colors, and one of those is only a “shine” color. In place of the 5th color is a brown gel (I think) liner. To be honest, I felt jipped! I have a ton of brown eyeliners! Ah well, I do see the value in having everything all together in one place I suppose, and to give it credit, the liner was very nice and dark, so it worked well with the palette.

The shadow colors themselves, are pretty nice. They’re not incredibly unique, but they’re very pretty. I love golds and coral colors and browns. It creates a nice soft look, which is great, but not what I’m all about, you know? The shadows are soft and go on smoothly. And on a side note…I’m really liking this lip combo! :-)

What are your thoughts?

Look: For Denny’s Birthday!

Happy Birthday Eve, Denny! Tomorrow is Denny (one of my loyal reader/commenter’s) birthday! She sent me a message asking for a special look just for her, and here is what I decided on :-) For you Denny, nothing but the best! Dior on the eyes, MAC on the cheeks, and Bobbi Brown on the lips. She likes darker colors on lips, so that’s what I went with, while still keeping the look simple and sophisticated (because while birthdays are fun, they still mean you’re getting older!).It’s a berry wine color that still somehow manages to look neutral, but made-up, you know? Oh, and I did a little contouring on the cheeks. I kept the majority of the cheek color to the back (near the hair line) and a little below the cheek bone, then highlighted the top of the cheek bonewith a highlighting color to bring it out. I hope you like it Denny! :-)

I just couldn’t resist using my Dior Bronze Couture Palette again because it’s pure LOVE! Seriously so beautiful! Oh, and I’m looooooving the lip combo of the two Clé de Peau products.

Review: Dior Bronze Couture Palette

dior-bronze-couture-palette-2

This Dior Bronze Couture Palette ($80) blows my mind! Yep, it’s THAT good! Ok, I’m not going to end every sentence with an exclamaition point lol. Anyway, I must rave to you about this palette. Usually these are little gimmiky things that I skip over and don’t even give a second look to. But when I was at the Dior counter, the lady helping me get my Electric Lights and Pop Diamond wasn’t an actual Dior lady, so she was a little slow. While I was waiting, I swatched this palette just for kicks, and whoa! I was so impressed!

I did a complete look using all 3 of the palette products HERE.

Included in this palette is two brushes: blush & lip brushes, both with caps. And of course the beautiful D for Dior impressed in the bronzer…simply gorgeous!

Look: Dior Electric Lights Quint

Finally…a Dior quint that has some descent color payoff! In my experience with the quints, they are just so disappointing in the amount of color I can get on my lid. This one finally gave some oomph, but MAC colors still do it better IMO. The color in the middle is very purple, though it looks like a navy blue in the picture. I included a close-up of it after the jump with the rest of my pics. What do you think of this quint? Worth the money?

Collection: Other Eye Products

I’ve posted all of my MAC shadows, so here is the rest of my eye products. Paintpots, eyeliners, and shadows/eye products from other brands. Oh man…now this means I have to move on to lip products…which will be a very difficult and work intensive endevor because my lip products are spread out in bags and purses etc. :-) Ah well, in the mean time, enjoy my other eye products

If you’d like to know names – please ask! Thanks!

Look: Dior Sunset Cafe Take 2

I really like this Dior quint, and I haven’t found another one that I like as much. This one is pretty subtle on me, even though I added some other MAC shadows to make the color stand out a bit more. It’s perfectly peachy with some gold and pink.

Look: Dior Quint in Earth Reflection

dior-earth-reflection

Dior’s Irridescent quint shadow palettes are so beautiful to look at. Their textures are velvety and usually the color pay off is descent. I’d like it to be more, but I think the shadows themselves are just light in color overall. So I did a look using Dior’s Earth Reflection palette. It’s great for soft neutral looks! For me, the color was kinda boring brown, so I tried my best to make my eyes pop with the teal liner on the waterline.

dior-earth-reflection-9

For this look I used:

  • Eyes: UDPP (primer), Painterly Paint Pot (base), Dior quint in Earth Reflection, Mystery Kohl Power (upper lashline), UD 24/7 liner in Electric & Covet (layered), BE Buxom Lash mascara
  • Cheeks: Enough Said Beauty Powder Blush
  • Lips: Chanel Rose Rebelle

I’m in love with the lip color itself (a new lipstick). It’s from Chanel’s new Bohemian Fantasy collection. Normally I don’t go for the more mid-tone pinks, but this one has a frost to it that really makes it beautiful. I wasn’t too crazy about pairing this lip with this look, so later in the day I went with a different CK color instead.
