Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Quints | Review, Swatches (Part 1)

Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Quints Embrace Electrify Magnify Touch Dream Undress Matte Satin Review Swatches Photos

While Dior's Summer Care & Dare Collection seems to still only be available in Europe (major sad face), Dior's Pump 'n Volume Resort collection is here in full force, which includes a drop of an all new, reformulated range of Dior's ever-popular 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palettes ($62 for 0.24 oz.)! There are 12 new quints in the launch, and I've got 6 swatched and reviewed today. I'll be doing a second post on the other 6 sometime in the next couple of weeks, so you can expect that soon! Currently, 6 of the quints are available at Sephora, while all 12 are available at Bloomingdales and Dillards.

NARS Liquid Blushes + Orgasm Collection | Review, Swatches

NARS Liquid Blushes Torrid Luster Dolce Vita Orgasm Collection Review Swatches

For summer, NARS continues its pattern of exciting launches with an all new Liquid Blush ($30 for 0.5 oz.) release! There are four classic shades in the initial line-up (hopefully more will come in the future), all of which have outstanding pigmentation, a really beautiful unique texture and great blendability. These have been so popular that they are selling out, and I suspect it's because of how great the product is! Since they're permanent, they will be getting restocked, so if a colour you want is sold out there's no need to worry ;)

NARS recently launched a new palette, the NARSissist Loaded Eyeshadow Palette ($59 for 12 x 0.04 oz.). "Loaded" is the perfect moniker because not only is the palette loaded with eyeshadows (twelve almost full-size pans), but almost every shadow is loaded (and I mean loaded) with pigment! More photos, including swatches and eye looks after the jump!

Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss | Swatches, Review & Photos

chanel rouge coco gloss swatches review photos comparison

 For Spring 2017, Chanel released the Rouge Coco Glosses ($30 for 0.19 oz.), a permanent line of lipglosses intended to replace the old Glossimer formula and to complement the permanent Rouge Coco line. I've got them all swatched and reviewed - it's safe to say I love em! From colour selection to formula to applicator, I think these are definitely an improvement over the old Glossimer formula, which I liked but didn't especially love. Keep reading for more photos and lots of swatches!

Tom Ford Summer Soleil Collection | Swatches, Photos, Review

Tom Ford Summer Soleil 2017 makeup collection swatches photos review
 *Opens box* *Screams*...this really seems like the only appropriate way to begin a post about my boy Tom Ford's really friggin epic Summer 2017 makeup collection. To say I am "over the moon", "obsessed", "in love" would all be drastic understatements...basically I have no words to describe the delight and covetousness that my inner raccoon / magpie / dragon / animal-obsessed-with-shiny-pretty-things feels for this entire collection. It is perfection. I want to bathe in it and/or eat it (the latter part mainly applies to the lip balms, which remind me of Jolly Ranchers). This would be the time for a mic drop and walking away, but I guess I should write a review for y'all...

Hourglass Girl Lip Stylo

hourglass girl lip stylo lip swatches review photos
 The Hourglass Girl Lip Stylo ($32 for 0.09 oz.), is by far my favourite release of the Spring season thus far. Twenty shades of almost-but-not-quite opaque, creamy, pigmented, lip-hugging goodness with a super pretty, satin finish that gives the lips some life and dimension without detracting from wear time. I love that each shade bears the name of a role, attribute or characteristic that women can possess - it's inspirational and adds some thoughtfulness to the process of putting lipstick on in the morning.

Lancome Le Metallique Lip Lacquers

lancome le metallique metallic lip lacquer swatches review photos on lips
 Lancome recently dropped a new line of lip products, and since they were touted as being "metallic", I had to check 'em out. The Le Metallique Lip Lacquers ($22 for 0.10 oz.) are billed as "a full-coverage, metallic lip lacquer with a rich, creamy texture that hugs your lips like a gloss and leaves them feeling hydrated." I went ahead and ordered the whole range to swatch for y'all, so keep on reading for the full review and plenty of picshurs...

Make Up For Ever Star Lit Liquids & Powders

Make Up For Ever Star Lit Liquid Powder Swatches
 I've been on a bit of a shimmer kick for basically my whole life, and when I saw the press release for Make Up For Ever's Star Lit Liquids ($24 for 0.15 oz.)  and Powders ($21 for 0.09 oz.), I knew I needed to get my hands on 'em. The Star Lit Liquids and Powders are multi-purpose products that can be used on eyes, cheeks and lips (except for a couple shades of the powders, which aren't safe for use on lips). They are meant to impart a sparkling, shimmering, glittering effect wherever you choose to use them, and they certainly do exactly that!

Chanel Le Rouge Crayon de Couleur & Coco Code Harmonie de Blush, Spring 2017

chanel le rouge crayon de couleur coco code harmonie de blush swatches review
 Chanel's new Le Rouge Crayon de Couleur ($37) for Spring 2017 just hit counters, so I stopped by my local Saks to check them out. The product is a chubby-stick style, twist-up lipstick in pencil form that offers semi-transparent to opaque coverage (depending on the shade) with a luminous, glossy finish that is hydrating and pretty long-lasting (for a glossy finish lip product).
