FOTD: Saint Coral

I dug right in and used the Saint Coral lipstick for this FOTD. I just built the face around it. Kept the colors easy… and focused on the lips:

Chanel Perfection Lumiere (Beige Ambre 64)
Chanel Eclat Lumiere (Medium Dark)
NARS Blush in Liberte
NARS Ramatuelle Eyeshadow Trio:
Matte Peach on lids
Shimmer Apricot under waterline
NARS Soft Touch Eyeshadow Pencil in Calabria (lashline)
Chanel Eye Pencil in Peche Cuivre (waterline)
Besame 1930’s Mascara
‘Lipstick Queen’ Lipstick in Saint Coral

Mini Haulage from Sephora

I’ve been meaning to post this… time sort of got away from me. I’ve been hunting down that silvery lipgloss for the Dior Spring 2011 collection. I finally broke down and got it from the Sephora website. I don’t really like buying some makeup that I can’t try out first. I was a little worried about this gloss, because I wasn’t really sure how it would translate.
I also got the Ore pigment from the Illamasqua Holiday Collection, and the YSL Touch Eclat in Or (also from the Holiday Collection:

Illamasqua Ore Pigment is described as a rich antique bronze.
I swear that By Terry has ruined me for YSL, because I wasn’t very impressed with Touche D’Or. It’s cute… but it still doesn’t hold a candle to the By Terry illuminators, or the Light pens from Elis Faas.

I smudged part of it out to show you that it’ll blend down to a nice shimmer. It’s nice… but certainly not covet-worthy.

Finally, the entire reason for my sephora purchase (I wanted the free shipping): The Dior Lipgloss in Silver:

As you can see, it’s not really silver. It’s more of an iridescent grey. There is a multicolored shimmer in the gloss, to make it a bit more ‘silvery’…

I think this gloss would work best if it’s layered over something else. I wore it alone, and I really couldn’t see any major difference on my lips. The formula is EXCELLENT though. Non-sticky and long wearing. It’s not a color that’ll move you on it’s own. I’m going to layer it next time and see what happens.

That’s my little haul! Ciao for now!
