FOTD: Metallic Smoke

I wanted to smoke out my eyes with metallic colors… but I didn’t want them to get lost (sometimes when you blend too many shimmers the colors lose their identity), so I mixed two distinctly different shimmers/textures.

Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation (Beige Ambre 64)
Chanel Loose Powder (Dore)
MAC in Lilyland Pearlmatte Powder (blush)
Louise Young Eyeshadow in Pom Pom & Black Bear (brows)
Bobbi Brown Light Peach Color Corrector (browbone)
NARS Cream Shadow in Ponderosa (lids)
Chanel Illusion d’ Ombre Eyeshadow in Illusoire (lids)
NARS Eyeshadow in Mekong (blended through crease)
YSL Shocking Eyeliner in Black (lashline)
Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Pencil in Zero (waterline)
By Terry Mascara Terrybly in Purple Success
Chanel Lip Pencil in Nude
Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in La Raffinee

Lip Service; Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet (Pink and Reds)

My top picks from the Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet line arrived at my doorstep… and every single one is absolutely fabulous!

These lipsticks are divine. They are silky, and the color really grabs the lips. But they can be drying if you’re not careful, because they are mattes. So a healthy dose of lipbalm beforehand is recommended. You can easily blot these and layer the color. Chanel really did a good job with Rouge Allure Velvet. The formula is truly divine.
