Diorskin Star Concealer, Swatch & Review, Comparison with Dior Hydra Life BB Eye Cream

A few weeks ago, Dior released a new foundation and a concealer around the globe. I have yet to try the foundation out but it has been over 2 months (as posted here at Instagram) since I have been using Diorskin Star Concealer. It has been put through a good testing phase and now I am ready to write my thoughts about it.

Tom Ford Lip Color #30 Negligee and #31 Twist of Fate for Fall 2014 Collection, Swatch, Review & FOTD

Tom Ford's Fall 2014 Collection must be one of my favorite collections this fall. I love how the shades combine with each other. With only a few products, Tom Ford managed to bring out a naturally glamorous look fitting to many different skin tones. Naturally glamorous? Is there anything like that? In Tom Ford dictionary there is. It looks enchanting, sophisticated and sexy but not over the top.

Today I would like to introduce the two lipsticks of this collection, Negligee and Twist of Fate.

Tom Ford Eye Color Quad #03 Nude Dip for Fall 2014 Collection, Swatch, Review & FOTD

I was pondering about this review since Tom Ford's Fall Quad Nude Dip is sold out almost everywhere. It must be the fastest selling item of this price point that I have seen since years. My quick question in Instagram revealed there are still ones out there who would like to read my review so here it goes.

Tom Ford Eye Color Quad #03 Nude Dip is the third quad in Tom Ford's dry & wet formula. Two others were released for Fall 2012 Collection, a green/blue quad called Emerald Lust and a Pink/Neutral Quad called Enchanted. Enchanted sold out also very fast and afterwards could be purchased in eBay for hundreds of $$$. I still receive e-mails asking me if I would like to sell my Enchanted, which is a palette I love to bits. I had to scream when mine fell down from the table during a comparison swatch session but so happy that it is still intact!

Tom Ford Contouring Cheek Color Duo in Softcore and Stroked for Fall 2014 Collection, Review, Swatch & FOTD

I know I am late to the party, although a dear friend sent me Tom Ford Fall 2014 pieces in the speed of light, holiday and traveling kept me from writing an early review. Today I would like to talk about two new and limited edition products from Tom Ford Contouring Cheek Color Duos in colors Softcore and Stroked

On a side note, only a few more days left for my holiday. At the moment I am enjoying taking photos under the sun, loving the shadows and accuracy of colors. This might explain the abundance of photos *winks*.

Guerlain Ecrin 4 Couleurs #16 Les Aciers for Fall 2014, Review, Swatch & FOTD

This fall Guerlain brought us three new palettes in their buttery smooth and pigmented formula. I can never resist a new Ecrin 4 Couleurs so ended up getting all three. I have already swatched them together (check out this post) and reviewed two of them with FOTDs, #15 Les Sables (reviewed here) and #17 Les Violines (check here). 

Guerlain Ecrin 4 Couleurs #16 Les Aciers is going to be my last review post for Guerlain's Fall Collection. Check out this and that post for Kiss Kiss Lipstick reviews and swatches too.

Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting 5-Color Palette in Fiery Saffron for Fall 2014, Review, Swatch & FOTD

This year was without a doubt "the year of the new eye shadow palettes".

Being an eye shadow palette addict junky lover, there were so many exciting products to try out for me. Chanel, Dior, YSL renewed their formulas while Guerlain released three new palettes which joined the permanent line. Although I loved the formula of former Estee Lauder Eye Shadow Palettes (Batik Sun reviewed here) I thought it was time for the brand to redesign the packaging and fit the formula to new needs. Today I would like to show you Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting 5-Color Palette in Fiery Saffron that I got to try. Oh and... yes the reflection from the mirror is really there, it is leaves of a palm tree ;-)
