One last look at Chanel's Peridot + Graphite... I swear!

Applauds Chanel's team for bringing me two lovely lovely lacquers that just keep making me lem. LEM.

I have been to the store to swatch them TWICE, on two separate occasions, almost weeks apart.

As we speak, Noel collection for Xmas has hit Singapore's shores now and Im still thinking about dear Peridot and Graphite.

Here are the swatches I did over my OPI Here Today, Aragon Tomorrow... Suede.

They matter, cuz graphite does looks different layered (heavily) over it.

I am pretty sure Peridot's green edges got a greater kick from this layering.

I am also looking at Jessica's Peacock collection that had a great looking duochrome with a hint of blue in the gold/green colour shifting lacquer... yummy. Peridot lemming therefore, is put on hold.

Here is magnificent Graphite. A totally chic, luxe lacquer shade that looks even better layered. Hmmm. 
I was working on a pair of hands that already had Graphite on them and spruced up her lovely long nails with black studs and crystal bling. Total rock chic drool worthy. And staring at close range her nails, made me want Graphite....


Last I checked these lacquers are still in store! :D

<3 muchos besos when u do!

Studio M- Purple Medallion + Slamming Red

Wow Wee. I managed to swap for these two precioussssssss on MUA. And I am loving them! However gritty they may feel. The glitters in them are great and the base colours are actually very rich and jeweled.

Here's the photo spam:

Slamming Red was gloopy when I opened the bottle. It has been used before I got it. No big deal, I added some Seche Restore to thin it but mostly I just scooped it out and applied it :P

New to me- Shu Uemura: Novadiva palette!

Japanese and now recently, Korean cosmetics are gaining popularity in Singapore. And my previous impression of them would be the frosty, shimmery eye shadows in hues of baby pink and powdery blue/purple... Hmmm, not exactly what attracted me.

And boy, was I wrong.

After checking out some Beauty Bloggers' posts on the latest Fall Collection from Shu Uemura, I was hooked. Mainly due to the beautiful palette. :D Here's a look:

Here are the eyeshadows and highlighter I bought :D 

I love the midnight blue shadow the most!

I love shimmery sparkles in a dense coloured base for my eyeshadows... :D I have swatched them at the store prior to purchasing. And I havent used them yet! Just been admiring them in the beautiful nifty palette.

Here's a really unflattering photo of the cream highlighter! :P


Have you used Shu Uemura products before? Are there any you think I must have?
