Dior 'Addict' Lipstick in Jet Set 544



Dior 'Addict' Lipstick in Jet Set 544

RRP: $30 USD

My favourite lipstick formula.
I also have Nude 333.  Nude is amazing as a base color for lipgloss or on it's own.





Giorgio Armani 'Rouge d'Armani' Lipstick



Giorgio Armani 'Rouge d'Armani' Lipstick in No. Pink 523

RRP: $30USD

I love the texture of these lipsticks. I own 3 but this is my latest one. I'm a bit disappointed with the color swatch I saw online because it looks a lot more pink than the photo they had on the color selection which looked more orange toned. This is actually a really cool tone pink in my lips.
































On my skin I'm wearing DiorSkin Forever Compact Flawless Perfection Fusion Wear Makeup SPF 25 in Linen 021

Burberry 'Lip Cover' Soft Satin Lipstick in No.02 Cameo
RRP $30USD

I really like the color and the texture.  In the looks department it does it's job very well.
Only down side is that it must be wiped off before eating or drinking, it tastes quite bad in my opinion.

Suqqu Face Color Palette (EX-01)

My favourite blush.
I look alive and glowing.  No sparkles at all, just amazing looking skin.
I don't know if you can still buy it but I paid more than I should for it when I did.

Lunasol Eyeshadow Comparison

Sometimes I wonder why I would purchase all these eyeshadows, I don't even use them.

I guess they are just pretty to look at.
I took these pictures on a cloudy day, trying to capture them all in the same lighting to see how they compare.

A wearable pallet, no matte colors, they all have shimmers.
I only recommend using the sponge applicators for applying as using a brush will result in fallout all over your face and they are difficult to remove.  The blue is lovely if you apply it wet with liner brush.

I didn't have a camera when I first got it.

DiorSkin Forever Compact Flawless Perfection Fusion Wear Makeup SPF 25



DiorSkin Forever Compact Flawless Perfection Fusion Wear Makeup SPF 25

Color: Linen 021
Nice powder to use over the top of sunscreen to matte the shine and doesn't crease.

I was curious on what the fuss was about.
I liked the texture, doesn't irritate my eyes.  
However I'm not sure how to apply it to make it look flattering.
This does appear to have a slight purple grey tone on my skin.  I like using a cotton bud to apply the shadow in areas that need to be more intense.

(update)
I found a video on how to do smokey eyes and it works well.
