L'Occitane Shea Cleansing Oil, Light + Ultra Rich Comforting Creams | Review

L'Occitane Shea Cleansing Oil Light Ultra Rich Comfort Cream Review Photos

With the weather starting to shift around here, I've been really proactive about changing up my skincare routine to accommodate for spells of dryness that are less common during those hotter, more humid summer months. I've recently been testing out L'Occitane's Shea range as a dry skin solution, and I've been really happy with the results!

It feels like yesterday that Marc Jacobs debuted it's Eye-Conic palette range ($49 for 7 x 0.003 oz. / 0.08 g.), but apparently not because for Fall, MJ launched an all-new, revamped range with six stunning palettes to suit every skintone, season and occasion.

NARS Power Matte Lip Pigment | Review, Swatches

NARS Power Matte Lip Pigment Review Swatches
A new matte lip formula has arrived! The NARS Power Matte Lip Pigment ($26 for 0.18 oz.) is a lip pigment (that's really the best way to describe it because it's neither a lipstick nor a lip gloss) with a thin, initially runny, slippery consistency that spreads smoothly and evenly over the lips and in a few minutes dries down to a velvety, beautiful, insanely long-wearing finish. It comes in 20 shades, and I've got 17 to share with you today!

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!
