L-R Chanel Incandescente, By Terry Frenetic Vermillion, MAC Lady Danger, MAC Mangrove

Today, I’m starting what I hope will be a new series on here, Comparatively Speaking. One of the things I find most valuable when buying new beauty products are swatches and color comparisons. Often, I can’t find comparisons of the specific products I’m looking for. Well, now, if you think like me and want to shop like me, it’s your lucky day, because I’m starting my own, and I’m starting with orange red lipsticks.

Yup, another haul. I have a backlog of things sitting around and some other things going on in my personal life, so I figure it’s a good time to show you said things and swatches. They’re pretty pretty. 🙂

Shani Asks You Sundays – Which Giveaway would you prefer to win?

Which of the two prizes I’m offering would you like to win? A Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm or a La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+?

Please note, these giveaways are open to US residents only, for the single reason that I brought these home from France for people to try since they are either not available or not as easily available here. I’ll have another international giveaway in the future.

  • The giveaways end at 12:00 am June 2, 2014 and one winner will be chosen randomly via Rafflecopter for each giveaway
  • You can only win one giveaway. If the same winner is chosen, a second winner will be selected
  • The winners will be contacted via e-mail and have 72 hours to respond in order to claim their prize. This means you need to use a valid e-mail address when entering your information in the Rafflecopter widget.

Paris Haul: High-end edition (aka The Mother of All Hauls, part II)

Affilier Acheté

Paris haul Continuing where we left off with my Paris pharmacy haul, I now present the droolworthy Paris haul of high-end products I sold my soul for invested in. I managed to do quite a bit of damage in a very short amount of time (about an hour…this is why I had a list!). My sister was appalled impressed.

Review and FOTD: Surratt Artistique Eyeshadows

Affilier Acheté

I need to state this at the very beginning, just to make things clear because of how effusive this review is turning out: I am not being compensated at all for this post. In the slightest. I purchased all 6 shadows with my own hard-earned money. That said, I think the Surratt Artistique Eyeshadows are possibly the best eyeshadows I have every used. They’re at least up there in my top 3. (And I don’t even know what the other 2 are.)

Some of you have been waiting for this, some of you haven’t, but here goes nothing. It’s taken me this long to post about my Paris haul because of all the things that I had to photograph! And the weather hasn’t been that cooperative. (I need to get some lighting!!)

Shani Asks You Sundays – Go-to Foundation

Affilier

I’ve been foundation floundering for a while now. Currently, my skin has freaked out, possibly because it’s a different climate in New York every single freaking day, and it doesn’t know which way is up or down. It does know how to break out, though. This has posed an added challenge to my foundation needs.

So I ask you.

What is your go-to foundation?

like my By Terry Cover-Expert Foundation, but I don’t love it. Or, it’s not my holy grail. I’m testing a sample of Giorgio Armani Lasting Silk Foundation because Karima loves it, but I’m undecided. I have a sample of NARS Sheer Glow Foundation, but, eh? And I picked up By Terry Densiliss Foundation in Paris (I know, I owe you guys a haul), but I don’t think I love it as much as everyone else. And despite what I wrote, I picked up some samples of Chanel Perfection Lumière Velvet Foundation to test out. Verdict is still out. I guess I need to keep going!
