Happy Monday! Newyork was warm and sunny this weekend and it was also Bengali New Year day what a perfect day to celebrate and start the year off right. Traditionally we wear red and white saree but I decided to mix it up a bit. I don't wear a lot of colors on a daily basis my outfit mostly consists of white or black color tops with jeans. When it comes to shoes and handbags, that's where I like to have some fun and twist. I wore one of my favorite pair of emerald green mules I purchased this pair last year from HM. The quality is superb it's has a satin material and it is very comfortable. Keeping the emerald green theme going I wore these vintage earrings that I purchased a few years ago, I absolutely love these earrings. I'm also loving the combination of the new Givenchy Blossom Crush and Byredo Bal d'Afrique perfumes both floral scents but it's not too heavy, it's very light and airy. Now let's discuss the bag I'm sure you've all seen the newest trend- PVC bags. Well, I can't get enough of the new trendy bag, I picked up an affordable version from Nordstrom. I'm eyeing a beautiful Chanel PVC bag but not sure if its worth the splurge. For now, I'm going to enjoy every bit of this BP. PVC Bag.

chantecaille 20 year anniversary palette review
Chantecaille Spring 2018 Collection

Spring has arrived and so has Chantecaille's new collection. I was able to test out the some of the products from the collection which includes:
chantecaille 20 year anniversary palette review and swatches
Chantecaille 20 Year Anniversary Eye Palette

Every year Chantecaille launches the most beautiful palettes and a percentage of the proceeds goes to reliable organizations. This year Chantecaille celebrates their 20th anniversary and this palette was created in honor of that. The anniversary release celebrates Chantecaille's natural ideal of beauty, and two conservation efforts particularly close to Sylvie's heart, The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, and The Lion Guardians. 

Chantecaille 20 Year Anniversary Eye Palette retails for $85.00 for .42 oz. The eyeshadows are housed in a beautiful high gleam gold compact emblazoned with Sylvie's signature. There are two elephant embossed eyeshadows and two lions embossed eyeshadows to symbolize the two foundations.
  • Selenkey- Burnt Gold.
  • Gawa- muted pink.
  • Kamok- almond highlighter.
  • Nanu- soft taupe.
The texture of all four shadows is very creamy and soft to the touch and there wasn't a lot fall out from the shadows. At first glance, you'd think the shades would show up very shimmery and opaque but much to my surprise, it's quite the opposite. The shimmer is an overspray which will fade with each use leaving behind a satin finish. The shades are very subtle in color and pigmentation. I love how blendable these shadows are you don't need a lot of work. I like the fact that I can just use one shade and apply some mascara and Im done with my look which is what I do on most days. However, I must admit the lack of a matte transition color is to be noted. I have to use another palette to create some depth in my crease so it's definitely not an all-in-one palette. The shadows are also not very long wearing, it lasted about 5-6 hours before it started fading. 

Kamok and Nanu Eye Shade Ingredients:
Talc, mica, dimethicone, octyldodecyl stearoyl stearate, zea mays (corn) starch, zinc stearate, silica, pentaerythrityl tetraisostearate, potassium sorbate, chlorphenesin, caprylic/capric triglyceride, tin oxide, tetrasodium edta, alaria esculenta extract, acrylates/octylacrylamide copolymer, isostearyl alcohol [+/-: iron oxides (ci77491/ ci77492/ ci77499), titanium dioxide (ci77891), ultramarines (ci 77007), carmine (ci 75470), manganese violet (ci 77742) Ferric ferrocyanide (ci 77510), ferric ammonium ferrocyanide (ci 77510),yellow 5 lake (ci 19140),yellow 6 lake (ci 19140),blue 1 lake (ci 42090), red 6 (ci 15850), red 7 (ci 15850), red 7 lake (ci 15850), red 30 lake ( ci 73360), red 28 lake (ci 45410)]

Chantecaille Philanthropy Cheek Shades Review and swatches
Chantecaille Philanthropy Cheek Shades

There are a total of six philanthropy cheek shades and it retails for $40 for .08 oz. I already own Elephant from a previous release and I truly adore that blush. All six shadows are coming back and they're here to stay! These blushes are embossed with conservation effort it supports, from Monarch butterflies to wild horses. The blushes are cased in an adorable pebble-like mirrored compact. It's formulated with finely milled pigments that contribute to exquisite colors and it has a featherweight texture. The texture is incredible, it's so easy to blend and the shades are perfect for everyday looks. Some might say these aren't highly pigmented but I believe Chantecaille is a brand that aims for a natural, simple yet put together looks. So with that being said, the pigmentation is just enough. You won't have to worry about overdoing it since you can never look overdone with these blushes. The shades range from light pinks to corals and it gives you a beautiful natural, flushed cheeks look.

Chantecaille Lip Chic Lip Color Swatches
Chantecaille Lip Chic Lip Color

Lip Chic retails for $38 for .07 oz is a revolutionary hybrid that combines the rich, even coverage of a lipstick with the high shine and plumping effect of a gloss. As I've mentioned in the past few posts, recently I've been reaching for more glosses and loving a satin finish lipstick more than a matte finish. So these lipsticks have been on rotate since I've gotten my hands on them. The consistency is ultra soft, creamy, hydrating, doesn't settle into the lines and it's very comfortable on the lips. The finish is not opaque it's a bit sheer but I don't mind it since I always line my lips with a lip liner prior to any lipstick application. It lasted about 3-4 hours before it started fading and it did leave a light stain behind. I think these three shades will look lovely on fair to medium skin tones. 
Ingredients:
Polybutene, diisostearyl malate, hydrogenated polyisobutene, polyethylene, vp/hexadecene copolymer, microcrystalline wax (cera microcristallina), dicalcium phosphate, mica, ethyl vanillin, pentaerythrityl tetra-di-t-butyl hydroxyhydrocinnamate, phospholipids, flavor (aroma), hyaluronic acid, saccarmonyces cerevisiae extract, sodium chondroitin sulfate, tocopherol, tripeptide-29, bht, tin oxide [+/-: iron oxides (ci 77491/ci 77492/ci 77499), titanium dioxide (ci 77891), red 6/red 6 lake/ red 7 lake (ci 15850), red 27/red 27 lake /red 28 lake (ci 45410), red 21 lake / red 22 lake (ci 45380), red 30 lake (ci 73360), red 33 lake (ci 17200), blue 1 lake (ci 42090), yellow 5 lake (ci 19140), yellow 6 lake (ci 15985), yellow 10 lake (ci 47005), manganese violet (ci 77742), bismuth oxychloride (ci 77163)] (limonene, citral)

Final Verdict:

I hope the swatches will give you an idea of the shades and finishes of the products. Let's start with the eyeshadow palette which I always look forward to but this year I wasn't impressed with the longevity and the performance of the shadows. I do like the formula but it's not up to par with some of Chantecaille's previous annual eyeshadow palettes. If you're someone who enjoys a sheer wash of color you'll love this eyeshadow palette. Also, the shades will work great for very fair to light skin tones. On my medium, to tan skin, I find it can be a bit hard to work with and that is why I have to use another palette to give it a bit dimension. I do however LOVE the eyeliner the quality is superb it's honestly one of the best performing eyeliner I've used thus far. The blushes and lipsticks are something worth checking out I know the Bee blush is very popular and it's sold out pretty much everywhere. My top picks are Jasper, Hyacinth, and Grace-Sea Turtle cheek shade.

I recently attended a very intimate Chantecaille event, we got to hear Sylvie speak about the brand. Her passion for the brand and how she gives back to the environment through the brand was very inspiring. I commend Chantecaille for thinking of the animals all while keeping their customers best interest in mind. I truly enjoyed learning so much about Chantecaille it was a remarkable experience.

Zara Bucket Bag

Hello! Switching gears today on Makeupwithmona. Six years ago when I started blogging I had a vision for my blog but for some reason, I decided to put a few things off and mostly focused on beauty here. I finally decided it's time for a switch and I want to incorporate things I enjoy. I will still be doing beauty reviews but along with that, I will be also sharing outfits, handbags, travel etc. I hope you'll enjoy this journey alongside me :) 

Last Sunday it was my parent's wedding anniversary we all went out for dinner and this is what I wore to the dinner. I actually got inspired by my daughter's polka dot dress which I will link here. I wish they did the same exact dress for adults but nonetheless, I found something similar and I absolutely love the dress! It's very comfortable and stretchy so I would suggest going down a size unless you want an oversize dress look. I paired the dress with a basket bag it's from Zara's last years summer collection but I found a bag that looks exactly like this one here. I wore my favorite white mules which I also picked up last year, however, I found something very similar and it's pretty affordable here. It's still chilly here in New York, so I went for my favorite camel coat. For makeup, I used two BH Cosmetics eyeshadow palettes, which I've been testing for a while and I will be reviewing them soon.

Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra Longwear Concealer
Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra Longwear Concealer
0.23 oz for $28

Laura Mercier recently launched their new Flawless Fusion Ultra Longwear Concealers. The brand claims this concealer has full coverage, weightless, seamlessly conceals under-eye darkness, crease resistant and blurs with up to 12 hours of wear. There are a total of twelve shades available and Laura Mercier was kind enough to send all twelve shades for review purpose. 

The concealers come in a sleek tube with a flexible doe foot applicator. I love the consistency, it's very creamy and it does have medium to full coverage finish. The finishing is very natural and it has a slightly tacky feel to it which gives it a flawless, dewy look and it's almost undetectable on the skin. I do have dark under eye circles and this product does a phenomenal job of concealing them. I also have some fine lines, so I have to prep my under eye area really well, before applying the concealer to avoid any creasing. I like to use my fingers to apply the concealers, the warmth of my fingers help blend out the product seamlessly. I did notice some creasing on the days I went heavy with the application so I like to apply a few small dots and once blended I lightly dust LM Translucent Powder to set the concealer. If I do notice any creasing throughout the day I just use my ring finger and gently dab on the area, it doesn't take off any product it just helps smooth out the creasings. I also love using the shade 4N to spot conceal it really blurs and conceals any imperfections. The shade 4N is a little bit dark for me but once on the skin, you can't detect the color difference especially after I set it with a powder. Flawless Fusion Concealer is very long lasting, I didn't get the chance to test out for full 12 hours but I did wear it for 8-9 hours and it stayed put all day long without oxidizing. For everyday looks, I like to mix the shades 3W and 4N and occasionally when I want to go for a lighter and brighter under eye area I like to mix the shades 3N and 3W.  There are three different undertones-

C for cool undertones-1C, 2C, 3C.
N for neutral undertones- 1N, 2N, 3N, 4N, 5N, 6N.
W for warm undertones- 2W, 3W, 6W.

I feel the shade range just jumped from medium to dark undertones leaving a huge gap in the middle. Even for my tan warm skin tone, I have to mix a few shades. For everyday looks, I like to use a concealer that's closer to my skin tone. So I hope they'll add more shades to the medium and darker undertones in the future.

The first photo is taken with flash and the second is taken without flash so I hope this gives you an idea about the shades and undertones. As you can see, the shade just went from medium to dark. I think that can be an issue for some, like me, you might have to mix a shade or two for a good match. 

Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra Longwear Concealer swatches and review

Here are a few other concealers, my most used ones are the Nars Radiant Creamy, MUFE Ultra HD, and Wander Beauty dual concealer. All three of them are very creamy and it doesn't crease as much. I do have a review for both Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer (here) and the Wander Beauty Dual Matte & Illuminating Concealer (here). When it comes to concealers I do prefer a lightweight, dewy, hydrating finish cause I have very dry under eye area and Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Concealer is just that! 

Final Verdict:

This concealer instantly brightens up my under eye area, it's not cakey, it's very easy to blend and it's highly pigmented. I've been testing this out for the past few weeks and I like that you can use this for day to day natural looks and evening party looks. Even though I noticed slight creasing, I blame my dry skin for that. Due to the weather, my skin has been extremely dry for the past few months specially, my under eye area. I would highly suggest prepping the skin with a hydrating cream, prior to applying the concealer. However, I'm curious to see how this concealer will hold up during summer. 

Overall, I love the packaging, the formula is superb, and it performs really well but I hope they'll expand the shade range in the future. If you like a full coverage finish concealer, you'll definitely enjoy this one.

Did you try the Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra Longwear Concealer? If so, how'd you like it?

Gucci Dionysus GG Supreme Mini Bag Review

Today I will be sharing what's in my Gucci Dionysus GG Supreme Mini Bag and how I pack the essentials. I remember the very first bag that my dad bought me when I was 12 years old, it was a mini backpack, and even back then I knew I love mini bags. Many years later, not much has changed whenever I spot a new bag I always go for the size-mini and the crossbody option is an added bonus. I do have a few large totes, which I mostly reach for when I travel but on a daily basis, I prefer the minis. I love having my hands free specially after I had my daughter. I purchased the Gucci Dionysus bag about 1.5 years ago and I haven't stopped using it ever since! 

Gucci Dionysus GG Supreme Mini Bag is a structured bag, it has a Beige/ebony GG supreme canvas with taupe suede trim and a textured tiger head spur closure. There is a pocket under the flap it's not that spacious but I can keep some cards or cash. The antique silver-toned chain strap can be worn in multiple ways, it can be worn on the shoulder with 15.5'' drop or it can be worn as a top handle with 9'' drop. It's 7.5'' in width x 6'' in height and 2'' depth. This bag has hand stitched details and hand-painted edges. 

Gucci Dionysus GG Supreme Mini Bag Review

At first, I wasn't sure about the monogram canvas but once I've seen the bag in person I quickly fell in love with it. The canvas is only on the exterior and the interior is fully lined with the suede fabric which you can see peeking through the flap and on each side of the bag. I love the suede trimming and the neutral earthy tones make this bag very easy to style. The snap closure is another thing I like about this bag it's nicely secured and it's very easy to open and close. The chain straps can be a little heavy but since the bag is very small and you can only pack a few things it never gets uncomfortable. The grainy texture of the canvas makes this bag very durable. It's scratch resistant and you don't have to worry about color transfer, I've worn this bag during rainy, snowy days and it still looks brand new! 

I'm 5' 3 and when I use it as a crossbody it stops right below my stomach which is the perfect length for me. Although it's a trendy bag and it might go out of style in the future but I can still see myself continue to use and love this bag. Gucci Dionysus GG Supreme comes in a few other colors and sizes. 

Keep scrolling for close up shots of the bag, how I styled the bag and what fits inside the bag.

Gucci Dionysus GG Supreme Mini Bag Review

As you can see, it's very compact so I just have to be strategic about how I pack the bag so that way I can close it without any issue. The only thing is when the bag is open and if you place it down the weight from the snap closure can lean forward and tip the bag over. 

I never carried a full sized wallet I just never felt the need to lug around a huge wallet. I prefer card cases I'm currently using the Chanel card case which is one of my favorite card cases. This card case has been in my collection for years now it's still in the pristine condition, it has 4 pockets if you count the front slot. I like to pack the makeup items in a Louis Vuitton Mini Pochette. My iPhone 7 fits easily in the bag but not when I have the card case and the mini pochette in the bag. I usually keep my phone in my hand or coat pocket so it's never been an issue. 

I always carry Lancome Dual Finish Powder compact and blotting sheets so I can touch up throughout the day, which is a must for me since I have very oily t-zone. I'm currently carrying the Fenty Beauty Blotting Paper and it's the cutest little thing ever! I've been loving these two new lip balms I've already reviewed the Kjaer Weis Lip Balm (here). Few other lippies in my bag are NYX Cosmetics Natural lip liner and Tom Ford First Time Lipstick- it's a peachy pink shade with a satin finish. Also in the bag, I have mini YSL Lip Tint Oil no. 5 and Cle De Peau Beaute Radiant Liquid Rouge in the shade 11. I always like to have a hand cream available cause I constantly wash my hands, the one I'm using now is a mini L'occitane Cherry Blossom hand cream. I've recently discovered a new brand Phlur and I'm loving this scent called Hanami it has notes of white florals, fig, hazelnut, and sandalwood. 

What's in my makeup bag

That's a wrap for my very first What's In My Bag, I always get questions on how I pack my mini bags so I hope you enjoyed a peek into my Dionysus Mini. 

What's in your bag? & Which do you prefer- a mini or a large handbag?
