L’OCCITANE ROSE CREME MAINS HAND CREAM
The formula is rich and hydrating, but I am not a fan of the smell myself. The top note is relatively great fresh rose scent, but the end note is a lot muskier, I am not sure if this is rosy scent? But if you like l’occitane product’s usual musky scent, maybe this could work.
More detailed review of the eye gloss. The texture of this is more balmy than gloss, lot thicker than gloss. Has white glitter in it.
There is no strong scent in it. Clear and beautiful.
Very hydrating, even to fried and unmanageable hair. Also, can’t beat the price. Leaves no residue.
Second pic is more closer to the actual color. The left side is wet and right side is matte, no glitter at all. Left side is in sheer, watery texture, especially the last ivory color.
The color is more lighter/warmer than the pic. Has glitter in it(very small) I love the texture as it is very soft, not sticky. But personally, not fan of the smell.. as it is too sugary for me.
The second pic is almost 100% close to the actual color. Fun palette with diverse spectrum of colors. I bought this bc of first color, which is hard-to-find mustard eyeshadow.
The color is bit warmer than the pic. Less pinkish hue.
Soft texture, I use this as eyeshadow as well. If you are a girl who can rock light, soft, peach colors, I def recommend. This does not look so good on my skin tone, but I like looking at it.
I usually go for deep colors like berry and red for winter, but for change of ambience, I am using more brighter, apricot palette for this winter.
From top left to right :
Nyx Ultimate Edit Palette: I mostly use these as point colors just for the center of my eyes (The second peach color) Compared to other palettes I own, this is not the most strongly pigmented one, but no complains bc I don’t mind them that way. If you are looking for neon point color palette, I recommend this one.
Kevyn Aucoin The Exotique Diamond Eye Gloss : If you want similar effect in lower budget you can replace this with Vaseline, but this pot is so beautiful I don’t regret buying it, for once. I might not repurchase though. Has white glitter.
Nars Sex Appeal Blush: One of the prettiest peach color blush. If you are a girl with fair peach&cream complexion, def recommend. Bit to soft for my complexion, but I still use it.
Laura Mercier Bare Baby lip gloss: Simple lip gloss for winter.
Laura Mercier Eye Basics linen: Very subtle base eyeshadow/ eye primer.
L’occitane Rose creme mains hand cream: Will be using religiously for winter for my super dry skin:(
Viseart Theory Palette Chroma: for peachy eyeshadow/blush palette, it is nice to balance it out with khaki/silver palette. Detailed review to come.
blue-pink matte powder blush. Has some white in it. x Purple blush, but pink. Little difficult to apply, as the formula is bit stiff (have to use brush, not fingers) but really pretty unique color. Has no yellow or red in it, pure blue-pink color.
Very pretty color. Also bit unconventional, bc I think the color is cool pink, but the glitter in it is gold, so when applied, the color looks bit warm.
This is closest to the actual color. If you want Nars blush in more cooler shades, I def recommend this one. Very pretty, but not so famous. Slightly magenta-like.
You have to apply this really lightly with a brush, bc it is very strongly pigmented.
