Estee Lauder Crystal Baby + NOTD

Yesterday I went to my Sephora with high hopes to find Revlon minted nail polish and Bourjois delice de chocolat bronzing powder, which have both been discontinued in Greece :-( Boo !!. I wandered to the Estee Lauder counter, to buy an item that has been on my wishlist forever (blame pixiwoo again), which is Crystal baby. I wanted to check out Crystal rose, and crystal pink but the SA who was extremely rude, couldn't find the testers so I ended up getting crystal baby.
If anyone watches amoderecommends on youtube and follow her lovely site, you know she loves Estee lauder nude nuance blusher and that it looks amazing on her, it makes her cheeks look so radiant and bronzed. I swatched it and it looked a bit orangey...have you ever tried it ? Let me know, because i think I may end up getting that one for summer :-p




I like the fact that it's glossy, moisturizing and buildable and you can slap it on without worrying too much. However the first time i tried it i was a bit disapointed, i felt that it's a "my lips but worse" colour because it wasn't anything exceptional (think of a more toned down version of MAC hue and way more glossy). I tried it on this morning, and it starts to grow on me, it's a very natural colour, non offensive and office appropriate. It smells delicious, a bit less fruity than the YSL rouge voluptes. I really like the formula, and now i want to try Crystal pink or Crystal rose.

Onto my NOTD ....Korres purple #27


2 coats, and i really like the colour. It isn't as purple as it looks in the bottle tho, it looks more like a dark red with a hint of maroon for me.

I hope you are enjoying your weekend!

    Also, I saw yesterday Revlon Minted at my local Hondos Center. Maybe you could try going to a H.C. store? Or if you really want it, I could get it for you
