Citron Pop with MAC Bitter + Neutral Face FOTD

Citron Pop with MAC Bitter + Neutral Face FOTD

Mac bitter eyeshadow, Illamaqua Naked Rose blush, Chanel Impertinence extrait de gloss

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.

Makeup breakdown:

Eyes:

- 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 Review


Chanel Revelation Le Blush Creme Review

 

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.
