Chanel Rouge Allure Ink

Chanel-Rouge-Allure-Inks
CHANEL Rouge Allure Ink
($37 @ chanel.com) is the brand’s answer to the liquid lipstick craze and I was able to get my hands on 4 of them to review and swatch. Like most lippies, some shades performed better than others.

What it is: A long-lasting liquid lipstick with a smooth texture that glides on like a gloss and sets with a luminous, velvet-like finish. Polymers, waxes and plant oils smooth and nourish lips, while Jojoba Oil and a unique anti-oxidant complex offer hydration and protective benefits. The applicator tip allows for comfortable and easy application. In a provocative range of red-tint shades, from tart pink to deep brown-noir.

Rimmel Wonder Ombre Holographic Eyeliners

Rimmel-Wonder-Ombre-Holographic-Eyeliners
I didn’t realize it but I guess from this post, I am pretty into the whole holographic trend as now I’m really into these liners from RIMMEL. These are their Wonder Ombre Holographic Eyeliners ($5.49 @ target.com). One side is a holo and the other is a dark liner in that shade category.

Rimmel-Wonder-Ombre-Holographic-Eyeliners-swatches
From L to R: Super Nova Sky (blue), Galactic Green (green), Purple Prism (purple), Golden Gaze (gold).

I have not seen holographic color come in many pencil forms like this so it’s nice to be able to add a precise dash of holographic delight anywhere you want.

Sephora Collection Holographic Face & Cheeks Palette

Sephora-Collection-Holographic-Face-&-Cheek-Palette-main
I want to know exactly where the Sephora brand manufactures their makeup products, specifically their press shadows as these act much more expensive than they cost! And they are bigger than a regular shadow. To give you an accurate scale, a NARS Blush clocks in at 4.8 grams and these are 3.2 grams, so not bad since there are 6 shades and the cost is $28 @ sephora.com.

SEPHORA COLLECTION Holographic Face & Cheek Palette contains the following:

  • Three Transformers in Green, Blue, Pink.
  • Three Matte Blush in Warm Rose, Purple, Pink.

Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow + Volumizing Eyebrow Gel

Beneift-Cosmetics-Gimme-Brow-+-Volumizing-Fiber-Gel
I’m pretty obsessed with my eyebrows! I had microblading done last fall and it’s the best decision I’ve ever made when it comes to them. Most times I don’t have to touch them up with pencil/powder but when I do, I’m reaching for one that will give me a little something extra, like what this brought-back-into-production and newly-formulated Gimme Brow + Volumizing Fiber Gel ($24 @ benefitcosmetics.com, hsn.com) from BENEFIT COSMETICS gives them.

Stellar Beauty Magnetic Solar Eyeshadow Palette

Stellar-Beauty-Magnetic-Eyeshadow-Palette-in-Solar
If I was asked for the shades I find as crucial and necessary for any palette to include these days, I would say the ones found in this palette, the STELLAR BEAUTY Magnetic Eyeshadow Palette in Solar ($42 only @ sephora.com).

Out of the 10 total shades, there’s a vanilla one, or as they describe it, a light rose pink, for all over the lid, three darker mattes for contouring and then six metallic/shimmery ones.

Butter London Glazen Blush Gelée

Butter-LONDON-Glazen-Blush-Gelee-in-Dazzle
Anything that delivers a product in a unique way always seems to catch my eye. And the latest is the Glazen Blush Gelee show here in the mauve shade of Dazzle ($26 @ butterlondon.com, ulta.com) from BUTTER LONDON. It’s a highly pigmented thick jelly that applies best to cheeks with fingers and dries down to an unmovable powder finish. The color is buildable and a little goes a long way. 

And don’t look to the 3 available shades for any kind of matte finish. Each has a pearly and slightly iridescent finish (from the mica inside) that will beg you to make cheeks your front-and-center feature. And why not? The cheeks rarely get to be.
