Sephora France Palette Green Idyll

Sephora+France+Palette+Green+Idyll

Although I’m not a fan of Sephora Brand cosmetics I can’t deny that the Palette Green Idyll from Sephora France is très assez!

Palette Green Idyll contains cream blushes you can use for cheeks or lips and four shimmer cream shadows for 19,90€. I like the fresh green shades mixed with golds and coppers! Quite lovely for Spring might I say. Euro is converting particularly well at the moment so I decided to order this palette as I’m really loving the design and colors, unsure if I’ll be disappointed or not but I decided what the heck!

Expect a review shortly!

Love it?

Darphin Paris Lip Gloss Review

I’ve always wanted to be French and fabulous.

Sadly, I’m neither.

Where did I go wrong do you think?

Fortunately for me I can have fabulous French cosmetics from Darphin Paris.

I know how much you guys love hearing about beauty from abroad brands and in this case you may have never heard of Darphin prior to this. You can thank your Muse later for introducing you to awesome brands from abroad!

Today, I’ll be reviewing for you Darphin’s newest shade of lip gloss for the Fall season entitled Illusion. Illusion is a opalescent shimmering pink shade that has a mod, nude finish that flattering on bare lips or with a touch of lip stain to create a rather lovely and natural lip look.

Darphin Lip Gloss in Illusion is one of those shades you’d deem suitable for a popping eye look. When you’re not wanting to take away from a more dramatic eye look with a vibrant lip look, Illusion offers a beautiful nude finish that’s stunning in it’s simplicity. The applicator is a sponge tip and considerably smaller than normal sponge tip applicators which makes for nice precise application of the gloss. The formula isn’t sticky or tacky but manages to have a nice, long wear. The packaging on the gloss and many of Darphin’s makeup collection is retro chic which totally appeals to my vintage side.

To further advance my career as a fabulously, fashionista French woman (I wish) I can pop a Les Anis de Flavigny in my mouth and go for the full French effect. When I opened this package today I couldn’t help but smile. I haven’t had a tin of Les Anis de Flavigny in at least two years. A friend of mine that lived in France (next door to Johnny Depp….I’m kidding, I’m kidding!) used to send me tins of these every time she sent a package over and they were simply lovely! If you’ve never been to France I highly suggest grabbing a tin, you’ll be magically whisked away to Paris in no time at all! I recommend Coffee, those are my fav but of course you might want to go with Rose flavor to match the mint to your gloss! You know how much the Muse loves to match!

For my look below I used Darphin Lipgloss in Illusion on my bare lips. Instead of doing a vibrant eye look I used softer shades on both my eyes and cheeks to compliment the simplicity of the gloss!

While you’re visiting Darphine do check out the Darphin Blush Sensation Compact, so Muse-like! Darphin Ideal Fluid Concealer looks particularly lovely as well hmmm we might have to add this one to our concealer line up for review! What do you think?
