May Favourites & Randomness

May was a bit of a blah month makeup-wise.  I have been trying to get into work on time rather than cruising in at 10 (which means a much longer day as I don't leave the office until 7pm usually), so I've had less time to think about what to wear and just grabbed whatever was in front of me.

On top of that, there wasn't really any new makeup collections screaming out my name - so I didn't really have any new bits of face makeup to play with except for the Dior Addict in Jet-Set.  Nail polish was a whole other story though.

Nails of the day #16 - Chanel Le Vernis in Distraction #549

The long awaited Roses Ultimes de Chanel collection finally launched in London.  Out of the four nail polishes, I picked up Distraction and Frisson (which will be reviewed later this week).  I skipped Attraction (silver white) and Tentation (magenta) because these kind of colours don't look good against my skin.  Not being a fan of lip gloss, I skipped all the glossimers.

L'Eau de Chloe

It is fairly unusual for me to write a perfume review because I'm not one of those types that can detect each note and critique a perfume in a poetic fashion. But what I do know is what I like and what smells good (in my opinion) - I don't like heavy and overpowering perfumes.

Having dismissed L'Eau de Chloe because I did not like the original Chloe (too sweet and cloying for me), I was pleasantly surprised when I tried it in a department store. I couldn't stop smelling the sample card afterwards - the smell is quite addictive.

Guerlain Terracotta Blush Sun Shimmer Highlighter in Sunny Pink #02

I surprised myself by purchasing this.  I was tempted by the Clarins spring liquid blushes which are very similar - but I was put off by the idea of having shimmery cheeks.  But once I swatched the new Terracotta Blush Sun Shimmer Highlighter in Sunny Pink #02, I knew I had to have it.

Nails of the day #13 - Dior Vernis in Saint-Tropez #401 Croisette 2012 Summer

The Dior Croisette 2012 summer collection is definitely the most interesting/wearable summer collection for me. A lot of attention has been placed on the eyeshadow palettes (which are a bit hard to pull off in my opinion, especially the blue palette) but I think the universal star products are the nail polishes.
