Illamasqua Katie Powder Blusher Review and Swatches


Gorgeous matte pink...cooler...lighter...but the formula is amazing.




Giorgio Armani Si Perfume Review and Swatches


I'm a sucker for Black Current scents...this one keeps it complex and sophisticated with musk, chypre, florals and wood.

Shiseido Veiled Rouge Lipstick in 302 Rosalie and 707 Mischief Review and Swatches


A very pretty formula with a high sheen and barely metallic finish.  Long lasting?  Not in the way I think but they do last for a good almost three hours which given the lightness of the formula is actually impressive.  And they fade as opposed to wear, meaning after about two hours they start looking more like a stain than a lipstick.

Rosalie is a medium warm pink with just a touch of coral.  This one wears less well for me.  Mischief is a vibrant light red, with a pink and blue undertone.  Lovely shade.

These are unique and I don't own any formula quite like them.  But not everyone will like them as the seem more of a gel or gellee lipsticks as opposed to a traditional one.  They are very pigmented though Rosalie is light.
