Project Update: Month 4

4 Oct

Hello everyone! Here is the update for September I think I did pretty well considering that it was my birthday month and I tend to go crazy with purchasing myself makeup. Here is the damage this month:

IMG_1615 IMG_1616

 

So only three products which is awesome!!! I have been enjoying my makeup collection and have been really happy with my new purchases. So I purchased the Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick in 476 Plaza which is a really great moisturizing shiny fuchsia shade; Dior Bonne Etoile Eye Shadow Quint my first Dior eye palette and I am really happy with this because I don’t have any shade in my eyeshadow collection that comes close to how beautiful these shades are; and the last is Makeup Forever’s Lip line perfector because I don’t have any lipliners needed one for the wedding this month. I have been enjoying these products the past month and am really glad that they are in my collection.

Face masks… I have developed a love-hate relationship with the sheet masks… sometimes they are lovely but sometimes they aren’t but I have been trying to whittle down my collection and hopefully by the time December rolls around I will be proud to say that I am sheet-mask free!

I wanted to try something different for this month because I had an enlightening talk with my little sister about the amount of makeup that I have. You see I have more makeup coming in than coming out therefore my stash is increasing every month instead of decreasing the amount of products. Therefore this month I wanted to try to purchase only three product and save my money for Black Friday/Cyber Monday and Sephora Friends & Family sale in November. We will see what happens so that will be all in next months’ update. In the meantime, I will focus on using my makeup and reviewing all the products that are not limited edition in my collection.

So I hope that you enjoyed this update I feel like the year is just flying by with so many things happening at once and all other aspects as well. I hope that by the time this project is done in December I am a little wiser in the purchasing department and will be able to figure out what I would like to do Resolution wise in January.

Review: Dior DiorSkin Shimmer Star in Amber Diamond

21 Feb

Hello everyone! An exciting post today as I am finally getting around to reviewing the infamous Dior Amber Diamond highlighter! If you can recall (I had to look back a while) I actually hauled this in March 2012. Haul post found HERE. So I’ve had this for about a year and I am finally reviewing it… clearly I have priorities straight but onto the review!

IMG_1376 IMG_1377 IMG_1380 IMG_1421

Description: A highlighting powder with fine shimmers for a glimmering look. Shades include ivory, champagne, tan, bronze, and peach strips and when blended together it will produce a golden glow.

Review: I love high-end products as much as the next girl and it takes a bit of convincing to actually purchase these sorts of products. Of course, it’s not like I needed another highlighter in my life but it’s extremely gorgeous! The packaging is hard plastic with Dior label in the middle. The five shades mix well together and create a gorgeous golden glow in the cheeks. I have a tendency to overdo my highlighter as I love the effect that they give my skin but no matter how much product I use (little or a lot) it does not look overdone not cakey on the skin. Texture is a very finely milled powder and all five shades are pigmented. Overall, this is extremely beautiful highlighter and I can really see why people love this product.  

Cost: $45USD/$45CDN

Where to buy: Dior counters @ the Bay/Sears, Sephora.com

Would I recommend this product? If you have the cash to spare then yes go for it it is a really really nice highlighting product and I’ve been using this for a year and haven’t even made a dent in it!

Review: Dior Addikt Lipstick in 422 Tokyo

29 Jul

Hello everyone! Another high-end post today I think I’m on a high end makeup kick… anyways, onto the review.

Product Description: This lipstick is described as a hydrating lip color and has a hydrating and voluminzing property while giving color and high gloss shine. 422 Tokyo is described as a sheer peachy pink.

Review: First off, packaging. The packaging is pretty dense and has a heavy weight to it (the weight of luxury?) and the end opens up with a doorknob type feature at the bottom of the tube. The outside sports a nice shiny effect with multi color reflections and has Dior raised on the edge on one side. Absolutely gorgeous and stunning for lipstick packaging. The formula is a pretty good formula it does provide a nice sheen to your lips and is a pretty shade. I think the peachy pink shades work well for most skintones and it does have some micro shimmers in it. There is no scent to them and for complaints I surprisingly don’t have any (and it’s not like I don’t have any because of the brand/luxury of it). A great lipstick for those willing to spend money on it (my wallet practically died).

Cost: $28USD /$31CDN @ Sephora or Dior counters

Would I recommend this product? Yes I would totally recommend this product for those who are interested in the formula and are willing to spend a good amount of money on their lipstick. I will totally repurchase this lipsitck line whenever I find some money or win the lottery.
