Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel Luminous Bronzing Powder Review & Swatches

Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel Luminous Bronzing Powder ($60) launched in two shades with the Chanel Summer 2012 Collection. I’m the type of person that avoids bronzers but occasionally like to dip my toes into the bronzing pool.

I have discovered by being a little adventurous that there are bronzers out there that do give just the right glow without dulling my skin out completely.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Blush Review & Swatches

Estee Lauder Pure Color Blush ($28) launched earlier this Spring in a range of sixteen shades. I think these are easily overlooked since Estee Lauder is written off as a more “mature” or “older” brand.

I admit even I have dubbed it “grandma” makeup. But honestly, since creative director, Tom Pecheux, has joined the brand I feel like new life has been breath into many of the collections launched.

I have a hardcore lemming for Tom Ford Blushes however, I’m unsure if I’m ready to take the near $60 plunge to own one of these wonderful creations.

I must say that Estee Lauder Pure Color Blush has cured some of those lemmings. These are an affordable, luxury blush that’s well worth checking out. I have a feeling once you tried one you’ll want to grab up all the shades like me.

I dunno how but NARS somehow convinced me that matte is a rather nice finish.

Miss Dior Autumn/Winter 2012 Teaser with Mila Kunis

This is a little sneak peek of Mila Kunis in her first ad appearance for Dior. It’s really different for Mila in my opinion as she always seems like such a tough girl, elegant, but tough. So yeah, the black bow kinda threw me off.

She looks amazing though! I like the combination of sweet elegance Dior gave her look.

What do you think?
