- MAC beautiful iris eyeshadow: Extremely disapointed in it, the pigmentation is lacking and the staying power is beyond ridiculous. Now knowing it's a veluxe pearl, one of the best eyeshadow formulas from MAC I had high expectations. The colour is lovely in the pan but on the eyes as you can see, even with a base and packing it on 3 times it has no colour payoff. Mac purples seem pretty weak, and I regret not getting a Bobbi Brown or Laura Mercier purple. Mine fell on the floor as it slipped from my hands and broke, but honestly I am not too fussed.
- YSL faux cils in vibrant violet #4: My all time favourite mascara failed to impress me this time. I was looking for a purple mascara that has a playfull purple payoff on the lashes for spring, not too extreme and 90's looking either but not as subtle as this one.After reading all the positive reviews on makeupalley I knew I had to get this one. On the picture, taken in daylight and zoomed in, you can notice the colour is gorgeous on my lashes. However in real life it's not noticable at all and it almost looks like a grey/black. My lashes are quite dark but a bit lighter at the ends, which should have made the result way more vibrant but it didn't, and I don't want to use a primer underneath either because it doesn't work on my eyelashes with this mascara (clumpy and spidery looking). I would recommend this for daytime use, if you want a very subtle hint of purple not even noticable (or if you have blonde lashes) but if you want dramatic beautiful purple colourful lashes that make an impact for nightime, don't bother and skip it.
- Korres bright pink #12: Loving the Korres nail polishes even more, they last a whole week on my nails without chipping (usually chipping occurs within 2 days with other polishes on my nails), they are a dream to apply and extremely glossy. Yay for Korres once again.
Also, whilst at the YSL counter, I swatched the new pink celebration higlighter powder spring edition 2011, and i skipped it. It was glittery, and way too frosty for my taste although the pigmentation was good, the consistency felt really smoothe and almost buttery. (One more reason to get Dior Amber Diamond)
