Face of Australia’s Dark Side Nail Polish collection was released for winter 2014 (it’s almost spring here now- I am so ashamed at how late I am with my posts lately). The edgy, villain-inspired collection features a mix of creme finishes, glitters, and a holographic metallic shades.

I was reading this post on one of my favourite beauty blogs ‘Anatomy of Beauty’ last week, and I loved the bright zesty pop of green that Blanka used, made so wearable by the neutral taupe in the crease. I realised that I had not yet touched my MAC Bitter eyeshadow that I had purchased quite some time ago, and decided to take Bitter for a spin on Friday.
Bitter is a velvet finish citron-chartreuse, with sheer to medium pigmentation. I find that I need a matte white base for Bitter to show up properly on the lids- which surprised me after seeing so many super pigmented swatches of Bitter around the internetz. It’s a gorgeous colour, though, and if you’re looking for a delicate chartreuse for Spring- Bitter works wonderfully.

I seem to be having an ongoing love affair with warm eyeshadows this year- since getting my hands on the Charlotte Tilbury The Dolce Vita eyeshadow quad, and the NARS Surabaya Eyeshadow duo, I feel like wearing nothing else but variations on reddish burgundy.
- Too Faced shadow Insurance to prime.
- Matte camel shade from Tom Ford Cocoa Mirage Quad applied all over the top lid with a fluffy brush.
- Becca Eye Tint in Gilt applied to the inner 2/3 of the upper lid, stopping before the crease.
- Yellow toned copper shade from NARS Surabaya Duo (left side) packed on to the inner 1/2 of the upper lid, and blended under inner 1/2 of the bottom lashline.
- Burgundy bronze shade from the right side of Surabaya applied heavily to the outer V, taking colour further out towards the temple, and lightly blended in crease.
- Same burgundy bronze blended under bottom lashline, concentrating colour on the outer 1/2 of bottom lid and connecting to the colour on the top lid.
- Bobbi Brown Espresso Ink Gel Eyeliner to line upper and lower lashline and waterlines.

Chanel Revelation Le Blush Creme de Chanel is a medium warm petal pink when swatched, but appears a little cooler and paler on my cheeks against my skin tone. I’ve swatched Revelation below, next to Le Blush Creme in Destiny, which is a golden peach matte. It is creamy in the pan, and turns to powder when blended on skin- with a glowy delicate matte finish. Layering to build up pigmenat
Lasting power before noticable fading is about the 2-3hr mark, not quite a good as Destiny but better than most cream blushes on my skin.
I’m a big fan of the Blush Creme de Chanel, and would purchase all of them if I didn’t have that pesky mortgage.
