The pink sheen in it is what makes this powder unique. love.gif

 

 

 

Thanks. I have to go back next Monday to get my wisdom tooth out. I'm scared. icon_eek.gif

Good luck but the good thing is that you'll be allowed to eat ice cream or sorbet, ice is really efficient when teeth ache I know what I am talking about.cry.gif

For some reason, got possessed by an urge to go to the YSL counter today. I ended up getting the gold eye liner, which really is quite stunning. I have the distinct feeling that it's going to be a cream shadow as often as it's going to be an eye liner for me. I also picked up the Golden Gloss in White Gold Topaz. I'm not sure why, but YSL seems to have a real knack for doing shades of purple.

Random comment to ensue:

I purchased 3 golden glosses during the Black Friday Sale. I'm not a gloss everyday girl at all but I figured I could use them on my lazy days. I purchased 37 Golden Red, 47 White Gold Topaz and 48 White Gold Amethyst. I wore 37 with MAC Cherry liner and loved it and was truly surprised how pigmented it was. I only reapplied once during an 8 hour day. 47 was also pigmented too, gorgeous magenta. But 48, total let down. I thought I would get a easy fall vampy look with it, but it was barely noticeable on my lips. A complete let down. It's looks sooo pretty in the tube but does nothing for my lips. I'm hating to return it.

I have 47 White Gold Topaz and 48 White Gold Amethyst too. I wear mine over lipstick when I want a glossy look. White Gold Amethyst looks great over lipstick. I also want to get the gloss gift set. I hope it sticks around after the holidays because I'll have to get it later. I'm still waiting for the blue holiday gloss to pop up.

Have you tried 48 on it's own? If not what are you pairing it with? I want to see if I can make it work one last time because it looks like it NEEDS to be something based of how it looks in the tube.

I'd love to hear some comments from the ladies who purchased the Touche Eclat foundation. How do you like it now that you've used it for a while?
I'm in the market for a new foundation but have read so many different reviews about this one! Some people seem to love and some to hate it.

I was drawn to that one too, but I swatched it and was surprised at how it didn't seem to look like anything. You're right, it's divine in the tube, but that doesn't translate. It's shocking, because Topaz is lighter but way more noticeable. I'm wearing it today over Nars Fast Ride and I'm thrilled at the shimmer and shine it gives. Also, for a gloss that feels so thick, the effect lasts a phenomenally long time.

I really do like it, but I'd say that if your skin has any tendency towards oiliness, it might not be for you. I can't wear it for long days at the office, for instance, because it just gets too shiny. The texture is lovely and very light and I don't find it emphasizes flaws or anything. It also photographs beautifully; this is where I've seen the "radiant glow" the most.

Thank you katred for your detailed answer! Fortunately (or not) I have normal to dry skin during the colder months. That's the reason I gravitate towards the TE foundation, because my skin tends to look a little dull during winter. I had a sample that was much too dark for me, but I wore it one day when I stayed at home and really liked the texture. Does it oxidize on you? It was impossible to tell for me because of the too dark shade. I'm about NC15 now and think BD10 could be the right shade for me? I read in some blogs that the BD shades are darker then their pink counterparts. Did you experience that as well?

I did not find that it oxidized on me at all. I used shade B10- which is for more neutral undertones (I'm neutral-cool in skin tone and about Mac NC15). I found that both the BD10 and BR10 were too deep for me but, yes, I did find that the BD shades were slightly darker than the BR ones, even if they had the same number associated with them. If this helps, I'm wearing TE in this shot- natural light on a cloudy day. Might give you an idea of how close we are in skin tone, at least.

post #402 of 1397

post #404 of 1397

Thanks Monsy! I love both the nail lacquers... I can never bring myself to buy an YSL quad because they're so expensive up here ($74). They are really pretty, though.

post #405 of 1397

i am thinking of getting Top Secrets Flash Radiance Skincare Brush. i've tried it in store and really liked it. i think it would be great under TE foundation

not that i need another primer...

Sorry for the late reply. I missed this post. I tend to wear lipgloss with lipsticks, but I tried 48 on its own just to see it. Good greif! I would be so disappointed if I intended to wear it alone. Where did the color go?! Honestly, I would probably return it if I didn't get it to wear with lipstick. I'd pair it with dark, vampy colors like Smoked Purple, Yung Rapunxel, etc., or even just to wear on top of Nightmoth lip pencil.

Is this collection out yet? I'd like to get the nail polishes.

I got a sample of the foundation in Le teint touche eclat foundation from them and I really love the light weightness of this foundation and the dewy look it gives me without looking oily. and it does not cake up on me nor oxidise on me. I love it so much that I went back and bought the full size bottle of the le teint touche eclat foundation

Are these the quads for spring? I think these quads were released previously. I thought it would be a green/pink/blue/purple quad.

Let us know if you get it. Does it have any strong scent? I saw the Top Secrets range briefly and I am impressed.

post #412 of 1397

Yes, they're re-treads.  Bummer!  I love these quads, but geez, couldn't they get a bit more creative and release something new?  19 is my all-time fave!!

 

And I guess I missed the Boreal Highlight Palette - which really annoys me since I'm pretty diligent about catching the YSL collections.  crybaby.gif

Do you have #10? I can't get it off my mind. I love all greens. Some of the swatches look very glittery.  I think #19 looks really pretty also. Have you had any trouble with the rosy shade in it?

 

I bought a plummy Dior quad and it seems to irrate my eyes some, not a great deal. I've only worn it twice but both times it happened. I've never had that happen with any shadows or liners with red as some people do. But this my first Dior e/s in that color range. I still find it odd that in my gazillion shadows in all colors this is the first to do that.

post #414 of 1397
I do not have #10 but have swatched it a few times. On my cooler skin tone, they don't look that great, and I find the colors to be at odds with each other - probably because of the bright white highlighter. It might look different on the eye, and I did find a post on Perilously Pale's blog where she describes it (and quite likes it).

I do not have problems with the pink shade in 19 - but I'm able to wear pink shadows without looking like a bunny rabbit for some bizarre reason. One trick is to use it between the crease color and the brow highlight and blend well - it gives a nice effect.

That's strange about the Dior color - I wonder if Dior uses a different ingredient in their pink/plum shadows than other lines?

Sneak peek at the spring collection on beautezine.com:

So we should see swatches and reviews soon!!!

post #416 of 1397

^^  Thanks for that link - I had seen the photo this weekend when I asked my Nordies SA what was up with the re-promote of the 2 quads.  She said something happened and they were required to replace the spaces in the unit with existing quads.  She didn't know what the issue was.  This quad looks interesting, but not sure if it's interesting enough for me to buy..... but we'll see.  girlhaha.gif

It is sooooo pretty eyelove.gif

post #418 of 1397

What are people's thoughts on the cream blushes? I'm not usually a fan of cream or liquid blush because they either don't blend well or fade too quickly, but I met Becca's beach tints recently and was impressed enough that I'm thinking maybe I just haven't tried the right cream blushes.

Thanks for posting close-ups, this is a beautiful collection !

post #420 of 1397

Ok, with photos like that, I'm done for.  Yes, it will go quite nicely with my others!!  girlhaha.gif  Thanks for posting!

 

Kate, I haven't tried them, but I've heard people really like them.  I'm not a fan of cream/liquids for the same reasons you state, but have never had the urge to try these.......perhaps I'm missing out as well.  I'm going to Sephora tonight so I might check them out to see how they apply...won't help much to determine wear time on my face, but we'll see.
