Chanel Rouge Coco UltraHydrating Lipsticks - Swatches

Chanel's New Rouge Coco Ultrahydrating Lipsticks ($36) at Nordstrom

The new Chanel Rouge Coco Ultrahydrating Lip Colours are the revamped versions of Rouge Coco lipsticks.  The new formula boasts a vibrant color spectrum with shade names inspired by Coco Chanel's closest friends.  These lipsticks are also creamy and moisturizing with jojoba and mimosa butters, sunflower wax and silicone for lasting hydration and luminous results.  I spotted these at my local Nordstrom and got some quick swatches to share.

Lush Blousey Shampoo

Lush Blousey Moisturizing Shampoo for Color Treated Dry Damaged Hair - Review
Lush Blousey Shampoo ($25.95 - HERE)

Ever since I discovered Lush shampoos a couple of years back, I have almost completely ignored other brands.  Which is okay, since Lush does make some awesome products, but for longest time, there was no shampoo that was quite right for my colored hair.  I Love Juicy, Curly Wurly, Trichomania, Cynthia Sylvia Stout - I use and love them all - but they really aren't the best for colored hair, especially when it's freshly colored and more prone to fading.  There are lots of sulfate-free shampoos even at drugstores, but everything I have tried so far just leaves my hair dull and not feeling all that very clean.  Which is why I was quite excited when Lush came out with Blousey - a moisturizing shampoo recommended for colored hair.  Scroll on for more photos and review.

NARS Audacious Lipsticks - Swatches


NARS Audacious Lipsticks Swatches
NARS Audacious Lipsticks ($32) at Sephora

NARS Audacious lipsticks are a newer addition to their existing line of lipsticks.  From what I can tell with swatching these at counters, the Audacious lipsticks certainly live up to their name,  These go on creamy smooth, are richly pigmented, and seem quite longlasting too.  I don't any of these yet - mostly because I am trying to use up my existing stockpile of makeup - but I definitely have my eye on at least one or two of these shades.  For now, here's a look at some swatches.

On my nails today: OPI Lincoln Park After Dark

OPI Nail Polish Lincoln Park After Dark
OPI Lincoln Park After Dark

OPI nail colors have been on my wishlist for a while now.  They are quite easily available and not terribly expensive either, but I have been hopping back and forth between places (countries/contients really), and that puts a limit on what all I can stockpile and carry around in suitcases - makeup definitely gets the last priority.  This year, though, I am hoping to finally post some of my OPI favorites here on the blog, and Lincoln Park After Dark should be a good start.  I bought this from Target about a year back, mistaking this for OPI Lincoln Park at Midnight (has shimmer and isn't as dark, I think).  No complaints, though, since this is just the sort of vampy, creamy dark nail color that I love.  Scroll on for more photos.

Giorgio Armani Eye Tint Fluid Color - Swatches

Giorgio Armani Eye Tint Fluid Color Swatches

Giorgio Armani Eye Tint  - a long-lasting, tinted formula with the comfort and smoothness of a cream for intense, vibrant eye looks.  The liquid to solid formula provides 16 hours of smudge- and crease-proof wear and can be used as an eye shadow or eyeliner, to create looks that range from natural to glamorous.  The packaging is similar to that of most liquid eyeliners or glosses, and the applicator is a flocked wand (similar to that seen with most lipglosses).  Here's a look at the swatches.
