Sunday Stash Shopping #14

I didn’t know what I wanted to post this week, but I thought I’d play with creams. I’ve been using quite a bit of Dior and Chanel cream eye shadows, and the 2 colours I love to pair together are Dior Meteore (golden bronze) and Chanel Illusoire (light silvery purple taupe). There have been differing opinions about the textures of these 2 cream shadows, and when I compared them side by side, touch by touch, Dior definitely feels bouncier while my Illusoire feels harder in the pot. Dior also dries more powdery and feels less wet – and let it be known that the Chanel ones are NOT wet either. Anyway, here they are, and here’s a look I created with these 2.

Basically, I applied Meteore on my lids and used Illusoire at the outer corners. I did this using my fingers only, without brushes. I think it’s a very simple look and quite wearable. There is definitely bling because the cream shadows are shimmery but my eye shape just eats up everything. That’s the thing with my double lid hooded eyes. I can wear something really bold and my eyes make it look wearable. LOL!

See? You don’t see much eye colour. If I want more drama, I have to smoke it, dark >_< Here, I paired this with light coral blush and pinky coral lips for a simple day time look. I can’t remember what blush I used but I used Dior Jelly Lip Pen in Carioca.

Hope you like it!
