YSL Palette City Drive in ‘Classy’

17 Jan

Hello lovelies!

Quick post on a product I picked up recently from Sephora here in France. The YSL Palette City Drive is a gorgeous quad of neutral shadows that can be used wet or dry, and was on sale in Sephora. It was originally €54 but was reduced to €27. I am not one to be able to resist a bargain!

I used the palette to create a smoky bronze look, perfect for going out for dinner, a bit too much for me during the day. I paired the eye with a peachy pink lip, using Bite Beauty’s Glacé High Pigment Pencil and a little bit of the bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss in Heartbreaker.

Used dry, the lighter shade took a bit of building, but apart from that every colour was nicely pigmented and came across richly on the eye whilst blending nicely.

Unfortunately this product was a limited edition, but if I managed to find it, you definitely can! Check out Sephoras, CCOs or ask at your YSL counters whether they have any excess they didn’t sell.

Have a wonderful day!

Christie xoxo

FOTD: It’s All About Bronze

19 Feb

Hello lovelies!

Thought I’d share an FOTD with you today. I just recently purchased ‘All The Faves’, a bareMinerals kit on ASOS’ big beauty sale (out of stock now boohoo 😦 ). It came with 8 deluxe sample sizes of some of bareMinerals’ most loved products, hence the name. The eyeshadows that came with it literally have blown me away. They’re what’s missing from my ab fab Stila ‘In The Light’ palette. I saw Anna’s post on the new Nars Eyeshadow palette, and was inspired to create a smoky bronze look myself.

Heard some mixed reviews about that Narsissist Palette, anyone tried it out?

The duo is called ‘The Epiphany’ and has one golden bronze shade with shimmer, and another completely matte dark chocolate brown.

I paired it with my Maybelline The Nudes Lipstick in Tantalizing Taupe, which I just got in my February GlossyBox. Can’t believe that was my last one! I still have 2 boxes to redeem with my credits, but still! 😦

I went back to work today after six weeks off while they sort the park out for the new year. New rides and new challenges! Exciting!

Hope you all have a wonderful day/evening, wherever you are!

Hello lovelies!
Quick eyes of the day post that uses The Body Shop’s Shimmer Cubes Palette 22. I received this little palette as a birthday gift, and MAN am I impressed. the pigmentation is beautiful, the shades are perfect together, and that mint colour! I adore it on the lids, as a liner, on the lower lashline, perfect!
