This is the packaging It comes with a pouch and a mini brush. Although the brush is very soft I wont be using it I prefer using my Mac duo fiber188 brush. When you open the compact there is a dome shaped plastic cover which supposed to protect the product. Instead it scratches the design I hate that little thing this is the second time it happened hope Chanel do something about that.

Chanel Camelia De Plumes Highlighting Powder

When I first saw the pictures of Chanel Holiday 2014 Camelia De Plumes highlighting Powder I was a little hesitant but I decided to cave in and I'm glad I did. It looks like a silver grayish color in the pan but once I swatched it on my medium tan skin it looks more off a pale gold almost like champagne color. I cant quite describe the exact color I feel like each time it looks different depending on the lighting. The consistency of this powder is extremely soft and smooth which is why I prefer Mac 188 brush for a light dusting on my cheekbones. This powder is packed with shimmer and it can look grayish if applied heavily. With a light hand application it will give you the prettiest glow.

Overall
At first glance this cool tone silver looking highlighter might scare people away but I'm glad I didn't. This might not be every ones go to highlighter but for the LE collectors its worth checking out. I give it a thumbs up if you're planning on purchasing this highlighting powder check your local Chanel counters before it sells out.

As we all know by now a few month ago Charlotte Tilbury launched her cosmetics line in US. I placed my order through beautylish.com. This was my very first purchase from them and I'm so impressed with Beautylish. I will get into Beautylish later on a separate post for now lets take a look at these goodies. I will be picking up a few more items soon cause I'm extremely impressed with her cosmetic line. I will review these items soon.

Tom Ford Twist Of Fate & Negligee Lip Color Review

Tom Ford Twist Of Fate & Negligee Lip Color
Price $50.00 0.1 oz./3 g
Where To Purchase: TomFord, Nordstrom,

Tom Ford Twist Of Fate Lip Color

Tom Ford Lip Color is my favorite lipsticks from the TF lipstick line cause I find the Lip Color formula long lasting than the TF Lip Shine. Twist Of Fate is a limited edition lipstick its a bright orange coral with a satin finish. I'm a big fan of coral lipsticks so I had to purchase Twist Of Fate. It looks like a toned down coral in the tube, but when I swatched it I got a very bright and warm orangey coral color. The consistency of this is lipstick is like butter it went on smoothly and applied evenly. It does have a very light barely there vanilla scent. It averages 3-4 hours of wear on me and it didn't dry out my lips,.


image
Tom Ford Negligee Lip Color

Tom Ford Negligee Lip Color is limited edition. Its a beautiful warm toned rosy plum color with a satin finish. Like I mentioned before I'm a coral lipstick fan so I didn't expect to fall in love with Negligee. Negligee definitely took me by surprise its more wearable during fall season. The consistency is very soft and smooth. This lipstick lasted about 3-4 hours on me and its non drying. Both lipsticks comes in the usual Tom Ford black and gold packaging.

Overall
I love Tom Ford eyeshadow palettes but I think the lipsticks are not really up there with the palettes in quality wise. With that being said I do love my TF Sable Smoke lipstick its the perfect nude for me and I will most likely continue to fork out $50 bucks to repurchase Sable Smoke. TF lipsticks are quite pricey so I would suggest checking out the lipsticks in person before purchasing them. If you were to pick up one lipstick out of these two I would suggest Negligee. Unfortunately Twist Of Fate was a let down for me its just too orangey for my liking. Both lipsticks are now available on TF, Nordstrom, and Saks website. 




Ipsy August Glam Bag

I loved August Glam Bag its super cute my daughter loved it too she loved it so much that she took it. I took a early peek at last months bag and I was happy to see the Urban Decay mascara. This is my very first Coastal Scents blush duo and I like it. I did not like the lip balm at all it has a strong grape fragrance and its something I can see a 12 year old using I did not like this product at all. I used Dr. Brandt Pores no more before and its not a product I would repurchase.

Tom Ford Softcore Contouring Cheek Color Duo without flash

Tom Ford fall 2014 beauty collection launched two Contouring Cheek Color duo out of the two I picked up Softcore. As you can see this is not your usual contouring shade and its nothing like the TF shade and illuminate palettes but the concept is pretty interesting. The deeper shade will add some definition, and give you that structured cheekbone so I can see why its called the contouring cheek color. This duo is extremely pigmented specially the contouring shade a little goes a long way. Both of the shade shows up very warm on my tan skin. It lasted about 9-10 hours without any fading. 

Here is some close ups on Softcore.

Softcore Highlighter

This is a lovely champagne color warm toned shimmery highlighter almost has a metallic finish. Its prealscent, smooth and very pigmented.

Softcore Contour

This is a warm toned deep berry reddish shade with a satin finish. This is not as smooth as the highlighter shade but with a light hand application it can be blended easily. Just like I mentioned before this one is highly pigmented.

Overall
All thought its pricey you are getting two product in one palette and the 0.70 oz amount makes up for the $77 price tag. Softcore is a beautiful shade for fall I've seen swatches of this duo on different skin tones and it looks beautiful on all skin tones. TF fall 2014 beauty collection is now available on neiman, saks, and TF website.
