I am beyond excited. I just got the box from the delivery person and here it is!

I have all of the ambient lighting blushes and use them on rotation (that’s how much I love them).  Now it’s easier to travel as the ambient lighting powder palette has now it’s travel buddy. And the swatch photo below is swatched heavily to show the color. And this is what I love about these blushes. The quality is consistent.

The powder is fine, applies smooth and silky and easy to apply and blend. The color selection in this palette is perfect for those looking into owning their first own blush palette. It includes Luminous Flush (champagne rose, permanent), Incandescent Electra (cool peach, limited edition in this palette) and Mood Exposure (soft plum, permanent). It will definitely suit a variety of skin tones, in different looks.

I got mine at Sephora during the VIB Rouge Sneak Peak for $58. It will be available for sale beginning October 1. Regular individual ambient lighting blush is 0.15 oz at $35 each and in the palette, each blush is 0.11 oz (x3 per palette) for $58. Definitely worth it. I highly recommend you to avail of this limited edition palette as soon as it is available.

Chanel RA Extrait de Gloss in Merveille and Attirance | Spring 2013

Ever since my first Extrait de Gloss, I know it’s become my favorite formula. So this time around I didn’t even think twice about buying the two glosses that came with the Chanel Spring 2013 Collection.

According to Nordstrom

CHANEL reveals the next generation of lip gloss—with colour so rich and shine so intense it could only be inspired by the iconic lipstick, Rouge Allure. Bold colour combines with the smoothest, silkiest gel texture for luxurious wear and deeply dramatic effect. Lips feel comfortable—never sticky or tacky—and look luminous, full and sensuous for hours. The double-sided, flocked applicator is beveled to deliver ultra-precise definition.

I like it because…

  • the formula is sticky but not overly so, sticky enough so it lasts longer on the lips. It is mildly hydrating on my lips.
  • it lasts longer than most lip gloss I own
  • the shades in this collection is perfect for spring and summer
  • the packaging is so classically chic

I wish…

  • the tube is not so heavy

I highly recommend this gloss as well as the two shades in this collection. It will be perfect from spring to summer.

Let’s take a look…
