With shades described as golden taupe, rose beige, rose gold and red brown, Tisse Rivoli and I were meant to be. I was also intrigued with Raffinement, which I thought looked beautiful and similar, but I never bought any. I hated the Chanel baked eye shadows. Has it been more than a year now that Chanel reformulated their baked quads? I remember reading beautiful reviews, about them FINALLY listening and stopped being absurd, and that the quality of the new baked quads are amazing! There is no Chanel counter near me, and at that point, I was pregnant, so I didn’t get to travel. Then you know, baby came out, I got even busier. LOL! That’s life.
I was then approached by Cosme-de.com, an online shopping site to pick up a few things for review. No harm there, I thought. It’s still a fairly new site but I went through the brands, and surprised to find some hard to find Japanese and Korean brands being carried. You’ll see Albion, Amore Pacific, Hera, The History of Whoo and Lunasol (which many sites don’t carry), and many more brands there. I believe they’re working very hard on bringing in more stock and more product variety to the brands available, so it’s a site I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on. The items arrived safely, in very well protected packaging, so nothing is broken. I read some really bad feedback about Amazon’s packaging on makeup items and I’d hate to see makeup I bought broken because the seller is not responsible enough to put extra padding.
So back to Tisse Rivoli. I’m sure many of you have seen this before but here it is anyway.
Doesn’t look like much on the pan, really. Just another set of neutrals. The swatches though. So pigmented and buttery! Applies smoothly, blends like a dream, light as air.
Still, it doesn’t translate to how much I’ve fallen for this palette. I can use each shade in this palette individually, and it creates a beautiful eye look. The top left, golden taupe, has the most dimension and looks best worn on its own. Bottom left, the rose gold beige, is also beautiful on the lids alone. The top left, light rose beige is great for highlight, and on my skin, it doesn’t show up that much. Bottom right, red brown, gives the perfect definition to my eyes. It has a satin finish that, when used alone, is great for that simple smokey eye. So many possibilities with this one palette. I’m really happy with my selection! I put up 2 looks on my Instagram, so go have a look <look1 using top left shade>, <look2 using bottom left shade>.
So tell me now, how much more have I missed out on?
