Burberry Velvet Lipsticks Swatches and Review

Saturday, October 27, 2012

Burberry recently launched 12 new Velvet Lipsticks with a chic matte packaging. I'm not really sure I understand why new matte lipsticks from most brands are called "velvet".  Perhaps it's a comparison to something that's velvety rich? In any case, this seems to be the new trend and it's here to stay.

I know there are only few Burberry counters available so I'm excited to share with you a (photo heavy) post to help make your purchases a tad simpler!



The velvet lipsticks from Burberry starts at 301 and ends at 312, ranging from lighter pink to deep red shades.  First up are 301 (Pink Apricot) and 302 (Peony Rose).


Chanel Holiday 2012 Collection Swatches and Review

Sunday, October 21, 2012

The Chanel Holiday 2012 Collection is very slowly making its way onto selected Chanel counters.  I was super excited to see the items in person this weekend. Unlike other holiday collection, I feel that this one has a smaller offering of products in comparison.  I really wanted to take pictures of the items but didn't have the opportunity to do so. However, I do have some swatches to share with you!

Dior Holiday 2012 Collection Swatches and Review

Tuesday, October 9, 2012

Dior's Grand Bal Holiday 2012 Collection is slowly trickling into stores this month.  Similar to previous holiday offerings, Grand Bal's color theme focuses primarily on reds and golds. However, both the lipstick and nail polish packagings are a nod to old time glamour.
