Femme Boulevard: Old and New

Today, we’re doing a product based theme. The oldest and newest in our stash. For me, my oldest got to be my Kanebo T’estimo eye shadows which were long discontinued. The latest is a lip product by Bobbi Brown – their Art Stick. It worked out quite well, actually because I haven’t talked about either of them before. Also, Kate and I are the only ones doing this, and it so happens, Kate is the newest member of Femme Boulevard, and well, I’m the old one. LOL! Here’s a look at the product I used for this look.




This is a Unii palette I bought to store my really old eye shadows. The 2 rows at the bottom are my T’estimo eye shadows, the top row is one of the old LE MAC eye shadows, a couple of Shiseido singles and a super old blush from Kanebo Coffret D’or. For this look, I used the beige (bottom row 3rd from left) all over my lids, and a dark grey brown (2nd row, second from left) for light definition. I used my ring finger to dab the beige all over my lids before using the Hakuhodo Kokutan T brush to add definition with the darker shade. These T’estimo eye shadows have some bling in them, and I hate that the glitters fall onto my face. I didn’t realize it back then, but now, I’ve gotten fussier 🙂




This is the Bobbi Brown Art Stick which should be available at Bobbi counters now. I have the shade Bright Raspberry which is kind of a bright purplish fuchsia on me. I love these Art Sticks because even though the colours are bold, I don’t need the hassle of using a separate lip liner. These go on semi matte, and very opaque. For the rest of my face, I used my Lunasol Water Gel foundation, Burberry blush is Peony (applied with my Chikuhodo Z4), mascara and brow pencil.

Subtly defined eyes, a breathe of pink on the cheeks, and statement lips. I love wearing bolder lip colours like this. What do you think? Remember to check out Kate’s oldest and newest in her stash and see what she does with them! Hope you enjoyed this post!
