I cannot believe 12 entire months have passed so fast. I will never forget this year for many reasons, one of them being the creation of this blog.
Now that the year is over, I would like to share with you 12 products that I have discovered in 2014 and that I have amazed me! If you don't know them, they are completely worth trying!
Every year, the Victoria's Secrets Fashion Show enchants us. This is one of the most glamourous event in the Fashion world, especially because of their gorgeous models/ambassadors who are also part of the brand now.
For my very first makeup look on the blog, I wanted to recreate their beautiful signature makeup look. Beside their fit bodies, the Angels always display a beautiful glow, bronzed skin and sultry eyes. However, I wanted to do something simple and accessible so that even beginners could do it.
If you have further questions though, don't hesitate to comment below :)
Dear Santa Claus,
I have been very nice this year, so for Christmas I really would like.. :
Dior Cature Total Dreamskin
I got this product as a sample. This is honestlty magic. Given the price, I did not want to believe in it but I was so surprise. Dreamskin is ranged as a serum but it also act as a base. If you don't want to use foundation but still long for the "perfect" looking skin, this honestly acts like Photoshop, erase the pore and creates a baby skin effect!
Nars Virtual Domination Cheek Palette
Nars is the master of colors and blushes. Every year, they release palette combining their top products. In this one you will find three blushes (Deep Throat, Sex Fantasy, Final Cut), their iconic Laguna Bronzer and the Miss Liberty highlighter...for the Nars addict that I am, this is just...*sight*
Lancôme DreamTone Serum
This is again another product that I tried thanks to samples. I did not request it but one day I was going through my sample bag (yes I have one lol) and while I was reading the description I decided to give it a try. This serum is meant to erase dark spot and correct pigmentation. I don't suffer a lot from this but I had some scars due to my episode of cystic acne and since I have olive skin, I ended up with some small scars. After two weeks, my scars just..vanished. MIRACLE!
Dyptique Epices Candle
If you don't know Dyptique and you are fond of candles, you are missing something. The luxurious French brand makes expensive but amazing candles. They perfume your room even when you don't lighten them up, so imagine what happens when you do... They created three limited editions candles for Christmas (Resine, Epices, Hiver), but my favorite has to be Epices, a warm and reassuring blend of cinnamon and plum.
Chanel Plume Précieuse Highlighter
Just take a look at this...I mean, this is just GORGEOUS. Part of the Christmas 2014 collection, this cool-toned gold/platinium highlighter is the star. If you end up getting it, be careful as it is pretty strong, so apply it with a very light hand. The color, although incredibly gorgeous is not universal and I doubt it would look great on dark skin tone. The packaging however is to die for!
Dolce & Gabbana The Bronzer Collector's Edition
Wow. I was stunned when I saw Dolce & Gabbana Holiday collection. Inspired by their Fashion collection with the Ancient coin (which is typical from them), the whole collection makes you feel like a princess in an Antique Roman palace.
The golden packaging, alike YSL, is gorgeous yet not bling-bling or vulgar. Simply luxurious. The bronzer itself is a luminous golden-brown. Don't be scared by the shimmers on top, it is only a kind of top coat and once you swipe the product it will go away.
Armani Eyes to Kill eyeshadow in Blast of Blue #1 and Rocksand #9
Last year I bought one f these in Gold Blitz, a rich and true gold color. Honestly, I fell in love with everything about this product. The color is so rich and pigmented, the texture is so easy to work and blend and it resists to any long day or crazy night-out. Start with one, and you will end up willing to get the whole collection. Next on my is Blast of Blue, an
indescribable mix of indigo and gold thats turns into an unexpected yet gorgeous metallic mix. The second color, Rocksand, is a beautiful champagne golden that will do wonders to illuminate the eyes and catch the light.
Guerlain Rouge G Lipstick in Rouge Parade #820
Red is the color of Christmas, right? Guerlain just got it right while releasing this limited edition Rouge G lipstick. The beautiful packaging, including a small mirror for touch-ups, was especially lacquered in red for this year. The color is a luminous neutral red which will illuminate every complexions...and moods!
