Diptyque Rosaviola Review | Spring 2016 LE

Diptyque Rosaviola Review Valentine's February Olypia Le-Tan Limited Edition Candle
Chanel Chance eau Tendre // Diptyque Rosavolia (standard, mini) // YSL Rouge Volupte Shine 12, 14, 8 // Dior Le Vernis in Diablotine & Lilac // Coach Zip Pochette (here, here & here)
 For Spring, according to tradition, Diptyque has released a limited edition collection offering a fresh take on Rose. Last year, the scent released as Rosafolia, which Sabrina of The Beauty Lookbook reviewed and described as a fresh, green-tinged rose. This year, Diptyque collaboarated with French designer Olympia Le-Tan to create Rosaviola (The Beauty Lookbook review here), and it is amazing. I plan to buy multiple backups.  The Diptyque x Olympia Le-Tan collection also includes a Rosaviola scented oval, an 'Eau Rose' hand cream, and an 'Eau Rose' Eau de Toilette in a 3.4 oz. size and a mini rollerball size

Tom Ford Spring 2016 Eye Quads: Honeymoon & Disco Dust | Swatches, Review, FOTD

Tom Ford Spring 2016 Eye Quad Honeymoon Disco Dust Swatches Review FOTD
 Tom Ford launched five new quads for Spring 2016, and I've got two of them to share today! I snagged Honeymoon from Neiman Marcus, where it was still available for immediate shipping even though it is now backordered just as it is everywhere else, and I ordered Disco Dust as well. Both of them are LOVEEEEEEE. I lost my Tom Ford eye quad virginity to these babies, and I can say with full assurance that it was a good decision. Product photos, swatches & FOTDs after the jump!

Dior Spring 2016 Makeup Collection Swatches & Review: Glowing Gardens

Dior Spring 2016 Makeup Swatches & Review Glowing Gardens Highlighter Illuminator Illuminating Powder Glowing Nude Pink

Dior's Spring 2016 makeup has officially launched online and in stores, and I believe that this is my favourite spring collection of the year. It's pretty rare that I want one of everything in a collection, and yet such was the case with this year's Dior goodies. The gorgeous and highly coveted illuminating powders sold out in a flash online at Nordstrom (although both are back in stock now), although they recently became available online at Saks (now only one shade available). I was fortunate enough to find both shades in stock at my local Saks, so of course I picked them both up. I also couldn't resist two shades of the new Color and Contour sticks as well as the lovely springy pink Le Vernis in Lilac. 

Swatches of (almost) everything after the jump!

Eyes:
5 Couleurs 031 Blue Garden ($63 for 0.18 oz.)
Cheeks:
001 Glowing Pink Diorskin Nude Air Illuminating Powder ($58, the only link I've found that still has it available as of 01/05)

Chanel Spring 2016 Makeup Collection Swatches & Review, L.A. Sunrise

Chanel Spring 2016 Makeup Swatches and Review L.A. Sunrise

Chanel's Spring 2016 makeup collection, L.A. Sunrise, launched online and in stores at the end of December, and although some beauty bloggers have mentioned that the colours seem more summery than springy, I personally love the eccentric palette, especially some of the Illusion d'Ombres! As always, swatches and review after the jump! See my FOTD with Griffith Green and RCS Energy here and with Tisse Beverly Hills, Sunkiss Ribbon Blush and RCS Shipshape here!
