Chanel & Dior Holiday Makeup Haul……….Daring Golden Twinkles.

•November 23, 2014 • 5 Comments

Hi Everyone,

I have already started buying some products from the high end holiday collections.

TBH; i’m not over-awed by many of the holiday collections this year. I usually cannot wait until November to see what’s on offer; however, this year just hasn’t really excited me.

I did buy what i consider to be the best from both Dior and Chanel this year. I also have some goodies bought for me; however, Santa say’s i can’t have them until Christmas Day.

Chanel Holiday Haul 2014

CHANEL

The Chanel Holiday Collection for 2014 is called Plumes de Preciseues and the star of the show is the illuminating face powder Camélia De Plumes, it is beautiful and so is the waterproof stylo eyeliner 987, Or Blanc.

With regards to the rest of the collection, i thought some of the products lacked pigmentation and imagination. Chanel could have used this opportunity to release more unique shades for the holiday season being that it is always limited edition anyway. On the plus side though, here are the products i did purchase from the collection.

Chanel Camélia De Plumes Highlighting Face Powder.

Chanel Camelia De Plumes Powder

This is a stunning highlighter with both gold and silver ultra fine shimmers. Gorgeous on top of the cheekbones and stays put once applied. It is a really unique shade and is limited edition so don’t miss out. I also don’t need to say that this is very buttery and creamy in texutre too. Star of the whole collection; this is going to make a great Christmas gift.

Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long Lasting Eyeliner, 987 Or Blanc.

I am never disappointed with these pencils and this is no exception. It is a beautiful creamy white gold, ideal for the lower waterline and tight line of the eye. It brightens up the eye in a natural way as only Chanel does, rather than the harsher pale shades that look very unnatural from other brands.

Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Or Blanc

Chanel has made these pencils softer to apply which is great; however, the down side to that is that it does take a few seconds longer to dry down. Once it is dry though, it stays put all day. I have bought two of these as they are LE. (Swatches below right are of the stylo and highlighting powder).

DIOR.

I really do like  the Dior holiday collection, ‘Golden Shock’ for 2014.

The highlighting face powders are nice in their golden collectible compacts; the pink one is nicer than the gold. The gold leaf effect nail top coat is stunning and i have had the 5 coleur eye palette; Golden Reflections, bought for Christmas for me. I can’t wait to try that out.

Dior Holiday Collection 2014

I also do really like the Diorific lipsticks and the Dior elfs have had a little bit of fun this year and brought out a dual sided day to night lipstick. Yes, it’s gimmicky but Dior understand that its the fun party season and their holiday collections are also limited edition too.

Dior Fusion Mono Eyeshadow, 621 Mirror.

Diorshow Fusion Mono Eyeshadow 621 Mirror close upDior Fusion Mono Eyeshadow 621 Mirror

As soon as i saw this, i had to have it. It is gorgeous. A pale golden shade with micro glitter. It just twinkles all over the place. It makes an ideal base for other colours, can be used all over the eyelid for a simple makeup look. I have worn this for my Dior FOTD coming soon. It can be used as a highlighter for the cheekbones, brow bone and top of lip too. Very versatile in fact.

Dior Fusion Mono BaseDior Fusion Mono and Chanel Illusion DOmbre comparisons(1)It’s very similar to Chanel Illusion D’Ombre eyeshadow, Convoitise,  just being a slightly paler beige gold, Chanel Apparence is more of a burnished gold.

Dior Fusion Mono 621 Mirror and Dior Rouge Baume 660 Coquette swatches

I bought it because my Chanel one is starting to dry out now. I’m not too sure if this is LE or not.

Diorific Golden Shock Matte and Metalic Lipstick, 005 Daring Shock.

Diorific Golden Shock Lipstick 005 Daring Shock

As i just mentioned, these are a great addition to the Christmas collection. Fun and playful.  These lipsticks have received mixed reviews but i think they are the nicest ones released from all the holiday collections this year. Diorific lipsticks do have real staying power too.

Diorific Golden Shock 005 Daring Shock metallic sideDiorific Golden Shock 005 Daring Shock on lips frosted side

There is a number of ways to wear this lipstick and it comes in 6 shades. 2 quite neutral, 2 mid-toned and 2 more evening wear. Something for everyone.

Diorific Golden Shock 005 Daring Shock Matte SideDiorific Golden Shock 005 Daring Shock on lips darker matte side

I opted for 005 Daring Shock. A lovely raspberry pink/red with frosted paler pink. Simply gorgeous and the matte side stays put for hours. It still had a great deal of longevity with the frosted side over the top and i do prefer some sheen to the lip.

There you have it. What if anything have you bought from the holiday collections this year?

Take care and i will see you all soon. ;-)

 

 

Christmas Gift Ideas………….Gift Sets.

•November 20, 2014 • 2 Comments

Hi Everyone,

Yes it’s almost here and no better time than to share a couple of my ideas for Christmas gifts.

This is my favourite time of the year for beauty products. The beauty gift sets are always lovely and offer great value because you can try out all the products without having to fork out hefty prices for full sized versions.

liberty-christmas-calendar-2

The beauty companies this year who are offering fab Christmas gift sets for me are L’Occitane, Ren and Nuxe as well as makeup offerings from Lancôme and Dior.

L’Occitane Almond Discovery Set.

A great introduction into L’Occitane products. The almond set contains some of my favourites by L’Occitane. Buying the full sized version of everything can become a little expensive. These gift sets offer generous deluxe sized samples and a bag for a very reasonable price and they come in other fragrances too.

Loccitane Almond Discovery Pack

A lovely present for anyone who loves luxury bath products. This one contains bag, Almond supple oil, hand cream, soap, shower oil and body milk. All for £20.00. Available from http://www.marksandspencer.com/almond-discovery-collection/p/p22332705

Lancome Definicils Mascara Set.

I have mentioned this before in a post a couple of years ago and once again, i have purchased this every year since i don’t know when. Why? Well, it offers a full sized mascara, a deluxe sample of the Bi-Facil eye makeup remover and a mini black kohl pencil all for the price of the mascara alone.

Lancome Definicils Gift Set for Christmas

Great value and Lancôme just offer some of the best mascaras out there. A no brainer really. It makes the ideal Christmas gift and they do various Hypnose mascaras in these sets also. Available here. http://www.boots.com/en/Lancome-Definicils-Mascara-Gift-Set_1498175/

The Beauty Advent Calendar. 

This is not strictly a gift set as such; however, i thought it was worth mentioning because they are gathering a lot of momentum with each passing year.

This year sees the Boots No 7; £35.00 and Body Shop calendars if you are looking for reasonable priced option at £50. I love the L’Occitane one for £45.00 though.  (See below)

no7-advent-calender-newthe-body-shop-beauty-advent-calendar-2014L'Occitane Beauty Advent Calendar

Liberty of London are offering a grand affair with some luxurious brands and items; however, expect to pay a handsome £149.00 for it. (See Above for picture).

My personal favourite is the Selfridges Advent Calendar. It offers, Victor & Rolf, Lancome and YSL to name but a few and it costs only £85.00. Great value in my opinion for high end beauty items.

Anyway that’s my couple of ideas for beautiful gift sets for 2014 and there are many out there. What are yours? Take care and i will see you all soon. ;-)

FOTD………..A Romantic New Moon!

•November 16, 2014 • 3 Comments

Hi Everyone,

FOTD number two. This time I wanted the focus to be on my lips with a subtle natural toned shimmery eye. This is one of my favourite day time looks.

FOTD A Romantic New MoonFACE.

1. Clarins Beauty Flash Balm.

This is a deluxe sample that i received a while ago. I am using it up but tbh, i don’t really think its the best primer I’ve ever used. It isn’t bad either. It’s just nothing special, on my skin that is.

2. Vitalumiere Aqua Hydrating Cream Compact Makeup. 20 Beige.

I just love this so much. I hadn’t been using it for a while because i had still had other foundations to use up and i am also using YSL Fusion Ink Foundation as well. This is so ideal for winter. It keeps the skin nice and soft and offers great coverage as well as making my skin look great. A definite re-purchase.

3.  YSL Touch Éclat Radiant Touch Highlighter. No 1.

Fabulous product!

FOTD 2

4. NARS Bronzing Powder, Laguna.

Using this one up at the moment as it’s almost done. I do like the natural healthy glow it gives my skin; however, it’s not a patch on the Guerlain 4 Season’s bronzing powder i also own and i will not re-purchase. It’s a nice product for it’s price point though.

5. Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush, 68 Rose Écrin.

If i was told i was going on a Desert Island and i was only allowed one blusher to take from my whole collection, this would be it. It’s such a flattering shade and ideal for any time of the year. A dusky rose shade with pink micro shimmer.

6. Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush, 73 Star Dust.

A limited edition shade which is wonderful for a highlighter. When this one was reviewed on it’s release, it was slated for having no pigmentation; however, the clue was always in it’s name. It is a lovely; no beautiful in fact, pale pink with multi-coloured glitter. Perfect for the holiday season and i’m so glad i bought it.

EYES.

1. Dior Extase Mascara, Noir.

Curls and thickens my lashes. I have reviewed this so many times now. A staple for me.

2. Lancôme Definicils Mascara, Noir.

Lengthens  and separates. I use this as my second coat over Dior Extase for amazing eyelashes.

3. MAC Penultimate Brow Marker Pen.

A no brainer. Quick, precise and stays put all day. Great for medium/dark brows.

4. NARS Smudgeproof Eye Base.

I’ll never be without this and i’m on my third tube now. No creasing of shadows, shadows are more intense and don’t budge all day. The best product NARS has produced, in my opinion.

5. Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Eyeshadow, 90 Convoitise.

A pale beige with gold micro shimmer, ideal for the inner corner of the eye and on the arch of the brow bone. Love it even though it is drying out now.

6. Diorshow Fusion Mono Long Wear Eyeshadow, 661 Météore.

Pale copper tone with pink and gold micro glitter that is ideal as a light swatch with a large eyeshadow brush over the whole lid. Great for blue and hazel eyes. I love the consistency of this much more than Illusion D’Ombre eye shadows; however, i love the shades in the Chanel so much more than the Dior ones. They need to team up!

7. Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Eyeshadow, 97 New Moon.

Lovely brown/copper shade with gold, green and pink micro glitter. Love this one and i do believe the consistency of this new shade is much better than previous Illusion D’Ombres i have owned. They seem so much more creamier and are not drying out as quickly. Mmmm Interesting!! I used this one in the v and crease of my eye and as an eyeliner a round the whole eye too.

8. Diorshow Waterproof Eyeliner, 738 Rosy Gold.

A gorgeous rosy gold with pink undertones, which is great for the waterline and how i use it. Great staying power.

fotd meLIPS.

1. Dior Lip Liner Pencil, 952 Rouge Royal.

Lovely soft red lip liner that blends easily and stays put.

2. Dior Addict Lip Maximizer, 005 Fresh Pink.

This does slightly plump up my lips. Not for the whole day but it does keep the lips soft and hydrated too. I use it all the time and need to buy another. Very nice product.

3. Chanel Rouge Allure Lipstick, 28 Romantic.

This is one of my most favourite shades from Chanel and wouldn’t it be discontinued ?!!! Why do companies do that? It’s just the perfect shade of red and Chanel have never repeated it exactly either. It has a blue base and pink in it as well. I love it because it is a very wearable red, and my teeth look whiter when i wear it.

Those were the products i used for my FOTD. It’s no surprise then that it takes me a good 30 minutes to apply them.

Take care and i will see you all soon. ;-)

Battle of The Body Oils …………Which One Cuts Through The Grease?

•November 8, 2014 • 10 Comments

Hi everyone,

I have been getting into my body oils in a big way lately. My skin can become dry in the winter and especially when I’ve been swimming. I love body creams and lotions too but when you’re in a hurry, body oils apply quicker and dry much quicker. Or do they?

Battle of The Body Oils

I have 5 at the moment and all are very different. Three are for the face, hair and body, one for the body and hair and one for the skin. So which one is the best?

1.The Body Shop Chocomania Beautifying Oil. Dry Oil for Face, Body and Hair. 100ml/£9.00

The most inexpensive of the lot. It is a fairly viscose oil with a lovely chocolaty smell. I want to eat it mmm. Contains nut oils and community fair trade marula oil. Unfortunately, it struggles to dry down and when i have used it after a shower in the gym, i notice marks on my clothing. I will never use it on my face and it is quite thick for my fine hair, so i have avoided using it in my hair too.

I think this one is a great for people with very dry skin and i would apply it in tiny amounts. A very nice fragrance though and is available in many other fragrances too. I give it 6 out of 10 for this reason and it’s price.       6/10

2. L’Occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil. 100ML/£35.00

Another fairly viscose oil. This oil is for the skin only. It has a beautiful sweet almond fragrance to it, which reminds me of Bakewell Tart. Yum!  It contains 50% almond and Camelina oil, which contains Omega 3 and 6.

It comes with a spray to avoid using too much at a time, which is a huge bonus as this is not a cheap oil. This does dry down after about ten minutes and it has great moisturizing properties. Very good for the elbows. I am giving this 8 out of ten as it has the best fragrance and works well on the skin too. The price is a little hefty.  8/10

3. L’Occitane Fabulous Oil. Body & Hair. 100ml/£29.00.

This one is more of a dry oil in the sense that it does dry down fairly well and gives a fragrance similar to baby powder, which is lovely. Reminds me of when i was a child and i used talcum powder.

It contains two rare oils from Africa which are, baobab and desert date palm oils.

I haven’t tried it out on my hair yet  Great if you want to get dressed 10 minutes after applying as it doesn’t leave any residue on clothing. It also uses a spray for application.    9/10

4. Roger & Gallet Huile Sublime Bois D’Orange Perfumed Dry Oil. Face, Body and Hair. 30ml/£12.00 

I am slightly disappointed with this one. The fragrance is my least favourite, (warm oranges). It contains orange essential oil and Vitamin E.

It dries down quite well though and once again, i haven’t tried it out on my hair or face. I will not repurchase this one; however, there are other fragrances available in this range.  I like that it comes in a smaller bottle for travelling too.   7/10

5. Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil. Face, Body, Hair.  100ml/£28.00 and 50ml/£17.00Nuxe Body Oils

I have saved the best until last. This one has a lovely subtle fragrance, which isn’t over powering at all. Sweet floral. The oil itself is very light and makes my skin lovely and soft while drying down very quickly. It is also fabulous on the ends of the hair too. Non greasy and leaves hair very soft. I haven’t used it on my face.

It’s composed of 97.8% natural ingredients containing Vitamin E and 6 plant oils which are; sweet almond, borage, macadamia, hazelnut, camellia and St. Johns Wort.

A great price for its quality and leaves no residue on clothing either. Comes in a golden shimmer variety, although i’m not too fond of the fragrance of that one. Also available in a smaller size for travelling.           10/10

Do you use any body oils? Which are your favourite body moisturizers? Take care and i will see you all soon. ;-)

October Favourites………No Halloween Blues!

•October 30, 2014 • 6 Comments

Hi Everyone,

Time for the October Favourites.  Its getting cold outside and my current fav’s are reflecting that really. I like to inject a little colour into the cold weather and still have a radiant face. My skin does dry up a bit in winter as well.

October Favourites

1. Vitalumiere Aqua Fresh and Hydrating Cream Compact Makeup, 20 Beige.Vitalumiere Aqua Compact

I love this creamy formula. I wear the liquid version in the summer and i wasn’t over awed with the latest powder just released. This compact offers a medium coverage and is much creamier and richer in consistency. Ideal for the winter and when my skin dries up.  I also still manage to have problem skin in the winter and this offers great coverage. No fragrance and doesn’t highlight any lines on the face.

2. MAC Match Master Concealer, 1.5.

MAC Matchmaster Concealer Close UpMAC Matchmaster Concealer 1.5MAC Match Master Concealer 1.5 Swatch

Am i in love with this concealer! It is ideal for under the eye and for blemishes. I still love the cult studio finish concealer for heavier blemishes; however, this one is great because it comes n a stick form and is very soft and creamy in texture and blends easily. Ideal for dark circles. It has no fragrance either making it great for my sensitive skin and isn’t heavy or drying.

3. Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Gel Eyeliner, Scotch.

Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner in ScotchBobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner close upBobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner swatch in scotch

This eyeliner stylo is lovely. I like it as much as my Chanel ones. It’s a golden brown shade with golden micro glitter. Lovely under the eye and as an eyeliner around the eye too. Gives a warm colour, ideal for blue eyes and a hint of sparkle, great for cold dark days. Once it sets, it stays put and glides across the eye smoothly without dragging. Available in other shades.

4. Nivea Lip Butter, Blueberry Blush.

I love all Nivea lip butters. They are fab for protecting the lips now the colder weather is here. This one has a lovely sweet, fruity fragrance and is a pale lilac in shade and offers a buttery feel to lips of course.Nivea Lip Butter Blueberry BlushNivea Lip Butter Pot Blueberry Blush

5. Dior Eyeliner Brush 24.

This is probably the best eyeliner brush i own. I use it all the time and it deserve’s a mention.

Dior Eye Liner Brush Number 24Often high end brushes get a bad rap on You Tube and Blogs and Dior is no exception. I would like to point out though that this brush is fantastic. It offers precise lining with minimal effort and can also be used to smudge out too. Quick and effortless for the unsteady hand, as mine is.

The bristles are soft, yet sturdy and made with natural hair and the handle is made from wood and quite ergonomic. The only thing is, it’s not available to purchase in store. It has to be bought online. There is one in the current brush sets available in store though.

6. MAC Fluidline Brow Gelcreme, Dirty Blonde.

Full review here. I haven’t stopped using this since i bought it. Great staying power and natural shade.

7. Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre , Natural Finish Loose Powder, 57 Rêverie.Reverie by Chanel

Sorry this one was limited edition from, The Chanel Élats du Soir Holiday collection 2012. The Chanel Loose face powders are beautifully milled to give the lightest dusting on the face without the nearest hint of caking. This one is a lovely pale beige  with the tiniest of golden micro shimmer. I use it on the tops of my cheekbones. Lovely!

8. Chanel Coco Shine Intense Lip Shine, 81 Fiction.

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine 81 Fiction in Direct SunglightChanel Rouge Coco Shine Swatch 81 Fiction in Direct SunlightSwatch of Chanel R C Shine 81 Fiction

Halloween Scary ScullMentioned in a few fav posts, it still tops my list for being the most perfect Autumn/Winter lip shade. A deep berry with an intense shine and is hydrating to the lips all in one lipstick. Ironically; Chanel released this as a Spring shade.

 

What are your Halloween favourites? Take care and i will see you all soon. ;-)

Top of The Taupes………………… When All Else Fails !!

•October 26, 2014 • Leave a Comment

Hi Everyone,

I have been sorting through my makeup collection and have come across a number of eyeshadows that share one thing in common. They are all different taupe shades. I hadn’t realised i owned so many. I see an eyeshadow and buy it because i love it at the time and have obviously had a love of taupes for a while.

Top of The Taupes

Taupe is a great staple shade because it goes with most other colours and all eye shades, skin tones and can be worn for day time and work very easily. A good all rounder really. It can be used as a transition shade or as the main lid colour, is so versatile and i’m not surprised that there are so many shades out there to choose from.

I thought i would share the great taupe eyeshadows and pencil i own and how i like to use them on my eyes. Most are still available to buy now as well.

Chanel Illusion D’Ombre, 83 Illusoire.Chanel Illusion D'Ombre Illusoire

An all time favourite and one of the most popular shades in this Chanel range. I wear this one constantly because it makes blue eyes pop and the multi-micro glitter is beautiful. Easy to blend, incredibly wearable for every eye colour. I wear this one in my socket with the Illusion D’Ombre Abstraction (salmon pink) and also with Emerveille, (a lovely peach shade) over the lid. Most of these shades have been designed to work well with the others and they blend out very easily with the mousse-creamy formula.

NARS Single Eyeshadow, Lhasa.

NARS Single Eyeshadow LhasaA cult product from NARS. This is very similar to Illusiore from Chanel but without glitter. It has a nice satin finish to it and is easy to build up. I wear this one in the socket with Chanel’s limited edition single soft touh eyeshadow Complice, (peachy/pink satin) across the lid. It makes a lovely day wear look. No fall out either.

Chanel Soft Touch Single Eyeshadow, 90 Fauve. (Disc.)

Another classic. This is grey/brown and a hint of purple with plenty of micro glitter. A gorgeous rich warm shade to wear across the lid. It may be discontinued now but Gri Gri is a similar replacement.Chanel Soft Touch Single Eyeshadow Fauve

I wear this one with a rich purple in the socket from Lancome called, Ombre Magnetique in,02  Cherry. I also wear it with Chanel Soft Touch Single Eyeshadow in Magic Night, the perfect contrast.

NARS Single Eyeshadow Ashes to Ashes.

Described as a taupe brNARS Single Eyeshadow Ashes to Ashesown but i think its probably more of a pale brown really. It would be a great base colour for brown or hazel eyes. It is a warm  brown but i prefer the Moon River eyeshadow stylo by Chanel to this one. I still want to try it out with other shades though because i do like NARS single eyeshadows and i’m not going to give up on it just yet.

Chanel Duo Eyeshadows, 40 Misty-Soft.

I have had a lot of wear out of these eyeshadows. They have a very creamy formula. The first shade is a pale taupe lilac with silver micro glitter, the other is a deeper purple taupe shade to apply in the socket. There is no fuss or fall out with them and are ideal for travelling with and suit blue and green eyes. Easy to blend too.Chanel Eyeshadow Duo Misty Soft

Chanel Stylo Yeux Long Lasting Waterproof Eyeliner, 84 Taupe.

Chanel Stylo Yeux Taupe

A must have in anyone’s collection. This will go with every eye colour and stays put once applied.  I have read some reviews about it dragging across the eye but all you have to do is place the tip on the back of your hand for a few seconds and the warmth will soften the stylo, making it a breeze to apply. Lovely! Doesn’t smudge or disappear during the day. I wear this with all my brown shades of eyeshadows. Rose platine is another firm favourite of mine in a taupe/pink shade and sadly, discontinued; however, full review and more swatches are here.

Chanel Soft Touch Single Eyeshadow, 99 Hasard.

I purchased Hasard because Gri Gri reminded me a lot of Fauve, (see above) and both shades were released together to compliment each other.

Hasard is a matte lilac taupe which is nice to apply with a little fall out. It isn’t as pigmented as i would have liked and is quite powdery in the pan but i still like using this shade as a transition colour.

MAC Brows………….What A Dirty Blonde !!

•October 18, 2014 • 2 Comments

Hi Everyone,

There’s one product i have loved from MAC for years, besides many others of course, and that’s the MAC eyebrow pencil Dirty Blonde.

It’s a kohl style pencil which gives a fairly light ash brown shades that is just ideal for fair complexion people who have fair to medium coloured brows like myself.

MAC Brow Gel Creme Dirty Blonde

Then MAC released the Fluidline Brow gelcreme Liner in the shade Dirty Blonde. I love the eye lining gels from MAC, they are fantastic quality and stay put all day. With that in mind, i decided to purchase this one for a change.

To my surprise, this is a tough cookie to get hold. It’s only available in MAC free standing stores or online. I got mine at the MET Quarter in Liverpool.

My Initial Thoughts.

MAC Dirty Blonde Base of Pot

The gel is reminiscent of the eyeliner gel, comes in the same style jar with screw on cap.  It is a waterproof gel and once set will stay put all day.

The gel itself is a warm brown in colour, not as ash in shade as the pencil version, more richer in tone. Only a tiny amount is needed on the brow brush for the whole brow. It blends into brows easily.

I think this will last a good 6 months with daily use. The pencil also lasts a long time too.

Eyebrow without productMAC Brow Gel Creme Dirty Blonde Swatch

Above left naked brow and right is the with MAC Dirty Blonde Gelcreme.  

The Verdict.

I really do like this shade, it isn’t quite as ash a shade as i would have liked but i’m not disappointed at all. One of the great things about it is that it stays put once applied and yet i still had time to contour it with a cotton tip before it sets.

Below are swatches using various brow products and then pictured right is after 4 hours wear on the back of my hand.

Comparison Eye Brow Pencils(1)Brow Products after 4 hours on the hand(1)

I will probably repurchase this and although the MAC penultimate marker is a firm favourite of mine; i liked the fact that the gelcreme didn’t wear off, so i could wear it in the pool if i wanted and it is a great price at £15.50 for a healthy 3gm product.MAC Fluidline Brow Gel Dirty Blonde Swatch

A definite winner with me. Have you tried out this brow gelcreme? Take care and i will see you all soon. ;-)
