iSwatch : Chanel CC Cream

iSwatch is basically swatches of beauty products taken with my iPhone – see what I did there?  *winks*  The photos won’t be the best quality and there won’t be in-depth product reviews but it will just be swatches and basic product info.  Today’s iSwatch is the Chanel CC Cream which I swatched in Hong Kong – specifically, the Chanel store in Sha Tin.  What is CC cream you ask?  If you have time, read this.

In short, this is Chanel’s definition of CC Cream  – an ideal cream for day-long confidence with a lightweight, non-oily, comfortable texture which delivers complete correction and natural-looking, long-wear makeup.


Review of Eye Define – Eyelid Stickers for Hooded Eyelids

double eyelid stickers, Eye Define review, eyelid strips for hooded eyelids

Just wanted to start off by saying THANK YOU to everyone who has supported me in my quest to being a Clinique It Girl 2013.  Thank you so much for your votes and for sharing!  There are still another 3 weeks of voting to go so will keep you posted.  This is also a game-changer but YOU CAN VOTE FOR ME MORE THAN ONCE AND AS OFTEN AS YOU LIKE!!!!  (Which also increases your chance of winning a $500 Clinique Prize Pack!)  If you haven’t voted yet, here are the details {link}.  Anyway, back to today’s review of an eyelid sticker for hooded eyelids – Eye Define.

My right hooded eyelid leapt for joy after my first try at applying Eye Define.  It went from being hooded to being a double eyelid, like it used to be in my younger youthful days before gravity took over.


L’Oreal Shine Caresse Swatches

L’Oreal Shine Caresse – Stains / Wet Stains / Wet Shine Stains / Glossy Stains / Lipglosses / *insert name* – yes, for some bizarre reason, there isn’t a universal name for the hotly anticipated new lip products from L’Oreal Paris.  And from the swatches I have seen on beauty blogs, there appears to be different shade names from US, Asia (I bought mine in Hong Kong), Europe – and gawd knows how long they will take to be launched here in Australia??  (I am going to a L’Oreal blogging event next week so I will ask and get back to you!)


Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

Apologies for the lack of blog posts this week and I will get the photos and swatches of L’Oreal Caresse Shine glosses up by the end of this week – but I have been busy working on a new design for the blog.  Let me know what you think of the colour scheme.  And I have also been using up my creative juices for *something potentially special* – will let you know if it develops into *something special*.

If you’re wondering about the lippy shade I am wearing – it is Juicy Red Lips in this video – basically Rimmel London’s Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick #10 plus Natio Rich Colour Creme Gloss in Alive.

Anyway, regardless of whether you’re single / attached / in a complicated relationship, I hope you have a LOVELY day whatever you get up to this Valentine’s Day.  I have already got my Husband’s V-Day pressie sorted – I am going to SMS him with a picture of me in sexy lingerie with cleavage out and in a slutty “Come hither” pose…right!  Sexting – it’s fun!  LOL!

Speak soon,
