Giorgio Armani Orient Excess Palette for Holiday 2014, Review, Swatch & FOTD

You might have noticed that I was silent a few days. This is what happens if your company sends you for training at a hotel which has a free casino entrance. Last time I gambled was eight years ago, so I thought I can give it another shot. I know the topic is taboo for some, but here is my approach, gamble small amounts and leave the game before everything is gone. I invested three cinema tickets to start with, left with seven of them, more than the double. Only works if you wait some years before you gamble again, beginner's luck is real (last time I have won as well!). Oh and be sure not to drink too much. Those drunk guys who must have realized I was sober were also investing on my box on black jack. They must be thanking me as well *grins*. There was one who asked for additional card after hitting black jack, can you imagine? Never drink and gamble ;-)

Giorgio Armani's Holiday Palette Orient Excess is one of my last reviews of this season. It is an interesting one, very different from others that I have reviewed so far. It has no sparkles and the shade selection is very wearable. Today I would like to tell you how I feel about it...

Max Factor Excess Shimmer #15 Pink Opal, #20 Copper, #25 Bronze, Review, Swatch, Comparison & FOTD

Drugstore make-up haven't been one of the things I focused since I started blogging. The reason for it was not because I was not buying any but because I didn't find them very exciting to show or write about. Each post requires various hours from shopping to photography, trying out products to writing. Be it drug store or high end, some of the products I purchased out of curiosity have never made it to blog posts because I was not convinced that I would like to put so much effort in them, just to write that they don't work for me.

Two weeks ago something happened. A new drug store product knocked me off my feet. So today it is about them, Max Factor Excess Shimmer cream eye shadows.

MAC Casual Color in Red Obsessed from Red Red Red Collection, Review, Swatch, FOTD and Promo Photos

I hope you are all having a great weekend. I have lots to do even on the weekends once the end of the year is getting closer, so I am a little bit stressed even on Sundays, what a bummer. Nevertheless I didn't want to hold back from one product I would like to show you today. It is MAC Casual Color in Red Obsessed from upcoming Red Red Red Collection, which will be released at the end of December in USA and in February elsewhere. I love the idea of having a collection named after a color and I am wishing for a purple collection right after that one! Good news is that there are many shades of red in Red Red Red Collection, so even if you are not a fan of red, you will find something in there.

Yves Saint Laurent Encre de Peau Fusion Ink Foundation B20 and BR50 Review, Swatch & Comparison

One of the most talked about new foundation launch of 2014 must have been YSL Encre de Peau Fusion Ink. The first buzz appeared online early this year and it was released in August to September around the globe. I have been testing it over 6 weeks now, and I am ready to shade my thoughts with you on this beautiful sunny Saturday before I am off to the city for some shopping.

Laura Mercier Eye Transformation Trio Black Diamond for Holiday 2014, Review, Swatch & FOTD

Each year Laura Mercier releases lovely sets during holiday season. This year there are several eye and face palettes for travels, brush collection as well as a mini caviar stick set. 

But to me holiday is the time all that glitters come out to play! Sooo when I noticed their new and limited "Eye Glace" last time when I visited the counter and I was intrigued by it since it looked and swatched like nothing I own and it blinked like nothing else! It comes together with a mini eye kohl and a mini black mascara.

I hope you are all having a good start in the week. I was very much stressed at the end of last one, but this started to be fine. Let's see how it ends. 

On the beauty front, Smashbox released their jewel themed "On The Rocks" Collection for Holiday. I had the chance to try out one of the palettes from the collection, which is my first Smashbox product ever. I have learned that they are more known for their base products. If you haven't tried their Photo Op Eye Shadow Palette yet, you may want to keep on reading.
