First Impression of Chanel Perfection Lumiere

I have been very curious of Chanel foundation and I am yet to own one. Previously I have stopped by the Chanel counter at David Jones Queens Plaza and spoke to the friendly and honest Angela. She sent me home with a little sachet sample of Perfection Lumiere, Chanel’s latest liquid foundation – in shade 30 Beige.

Atomic Ambition

Something short and sweet I am slotting in between my assignment and exam studies…

Long overdue this may be but I may as well jog your memory down Illamasqua lane where two of their most beautiful products will be mentioned in this post. If you are familiar with the brand you will notice the title of this post as the names of both the products that I will give some honouring.

BPIlla

Atomic Lipstick – is a hot hot hot pink shade that is an ultimate “perk me up” kinda shade. Winter is approaching and you may be feeling rather bleagh. May this be the kind of shade to brighten up your mood?

Looks like it is on the blue base side and not for the faint hearted, yet for those who dare to be different, I’d say.

BPIlla1

Ambition (Shimmer) Powder Blusher – is one of Illamasqua’s first shimmer blushes along with Morale when both were released in the Theatre of the Nameless Collection last year. Yes, last year, not too long ago, has it?

In my honest and humblest opinion this blush will compliment any skin tone. Its pink is not too hot nor it is too cool. Its shimmer is subtle and gives a natural sheen of glow to your cheeks without being a Christmas glitter d├ęcor.

Morale (Shimmer) Powder Blusher – is a gorgeous, gorgeous magenta shade that leaves you with a sheen of glowing from within pop of brightened cheeks.

Available at Illamasqua counters, Myer and website – AUD42.00

Available at Illamasqua website – GBP16.50

March Bellabox vs Glossybox

With the range of beauty sample boxes available in the market today I’m sure you are confused as to which one to subscribe to and whether it is worth the price. I am here to tell you that it depends on what kind of things you like and that will differ per person. It also depends on the month. One month the box may not suit you personally but the next month may trigger your interest. Just like this month’s Glossybox – one that has surprised me pleasantly this month of March, one that my first Bellabox has not managed to do so. However, note that the previous Bellabox seemed to have been nothing short of impressive while I did not care much for the previous Glossybox. You can already see the varying opinions happening.

Blogposts_ToDo_Mar123

Glossybox for the month of March focuses on being active and healthy while staying beautiful. I received:

Eau Thermale Avene Gentle Milk Cleanser

Eau Thermale Avene Gentle Toner

Klorane Gentle Shampoo with Oat Milk

Proactive Cleansing Bar

Pome Skin & Hair Hydrating Serum

Love the smell of the box I have my suspicion on the hydrating serum giving off the lovely scent. The only thing I won’t use is the cleansing bar – to be honest – I personally dare not use it fearing Proactive will aggravate my skin.

On another note I am loving the two Avene products received.

Cute box too.

Blogposts_ToDo_Mar124

This month’s Bellabox is not exactly a box, but a muslin/canvas drawstring pouch (environmental friendly). The content seems to highly focus on hydration and eye creams with eye lift kit and a sample pot of eye balm. Bellabox says that this month is all about letting your true self shine – Bare Faced Beauty bellabox. Though unfortunately I find that it falls short in terms of expectations.

U Little Beauty Natural Repair Hair Masque

Yes To Carrots Lip Tint in C Me Blush

Pure Fiji Coconut Hydrating Body Lotion

Eyelift Kit (contains 3 tablet size application)

Bellamer Eye Balm

Blogposts_ToDo_Mar125

This lip tint is a nice minty one and it tones down my pigmented lips in days I want a nude lips look, yet instead of whipping out a lipstick I’d pull this lip tint out.

On another note, the drawstring pouch is reuseable either for your essentials in your handbag or… … storage, yet again.

Both are in the $15 mark per month. My suggestion is to try it out for 1-3 months before jumping in to the annual subscription.

Price-wise, it does not hurt to try. Especially for youse who love trying out new products without breaking the bank by buying them all full prices. Most times, 1 of the product itself will cost more than $15 and you’re basically getting the rest for free. Also for those who enjoy getting parcels, you’ll love the surprise each month it brings.

Mani Monday - Bright Blue Toes

Maybe it's just me but I'm loving blues and coloured toes...

This latest colour to paint mine is a gorgeous, creamy teal blue shade by the name Sky's the Limit by Australis.

I'm impressed, very impressed. It is so easy to apply, glides so smoothly over the nail bed and does not streak! It lasts for weeks too! Fyi, I use base coat and top coat (those are a must for my nails)

Available at Priceline, Kmart and other store that sell Australis. At $7.95 it is a fraction of the price of OPI, do I recommend it? YES!

Loving it and wait till I show you more colours from their new collection :D

Have a great week!
