Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Dim Infusion

The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders were undoubtedly among the biggest new makeup releases in 2013, so it was no surprise that when they announced the launch of the Ambient Lighting Blushes, the beauty interwebz went wild. Choosing one to purchase sight unseen was arguably one of the most headache-inducing tasks I've performed all month, because: 1) all six shades look breathtaking in promo pictures, and 2) there's no way to tell what the actual color will look like once the two shades are swirled together. Luckily, the shade I eventually chose is probably also the one that suits my blush taste the most. Phew, "crisis" averted.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Dim Infusion is described as a "subdued coral." Its color comes as a result of a gorgeous marbling of the Dim Light Ambient Lighting Powder with a coral blush. The overall shade achieved is a peach with a hint of coral. Obviously, there will be some variation in the veining with each blush, so other Dim Infusions may yield slightly different effects. 

With my particular blush, since most of the coral veining is concentrated in the middle of the pan, I have the option of toning down the brightness a bit by dipping my brush into either the bottom left or top right of the pan, rather than in the center.

The texture of Dim Infusion is exactly like that of my other Ambient Lighting Powders - soft, buttery and finely milled. Because of this, it's possible for your brush to kick up some powder if you're not careful. Tapping your brush into the powder, rather than swirling it around, works best. Even so, I still notice a bit of powder being dusted into the air when I apply it to my cheeks. I'd say it has a satin finish (one of my favorites!), although it runs on the more matte end of the spectrum than shimmery; it blends beautifully into the skin, isn't chalky and doesn't accentuate pores.

Dim Infusion has great pigmentation, but keeping in mind that it's a lighter blush shade, it would probably best suit fair to light-medium skin tones (I'd guess NC25 or lighter). The shade actually reminds me a bit of Milani Luminoso but with less sheen. It shows up beautifully on my NC20 complexion, and I appreciate that it's hard to overdo.

So, I know you all must be wondering now - is it worth the hype? In all honesty, I think it's difficult for a powder blush to truly be revolutionary anymore. If you're someone who has plenty of blush already that you're happy with, although beautiful, these probably won't add much to your collection. On the other hand, if you're someone who just has a few staple blushes that they rotate through (I'm thinking like one really nice pink blush, one really nice peach blush, etc.), then you might just find one or two in this line worthy of being added to your routine line-up. Basically, do you need these? No. Are they nice to have? Ain't nobody touching my Dim Infusion. Does that answer your question?

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Dim Infusion is available from Sephora for $35.

The NARSissist Eyeshadow Palette: Swatches and Initial Thoughts.

Edit #4 (2/3/14): Just when I thought the situation was resolved, it just got more annoying. NARS Customer Service called me back yet again and said to return the palette...again. Palette aside, it's disappointing to me that such a large company could have such poor and disjointed customer service practices and couldn't care less if their solutions to rectify  problems caused on their end simply create more work, hassle and confusion for the customer.

Edit #3 (1/31/14): NARS Customer Service called me back on their own to tell me to keep my palette and that they sent me a Mekong eyeshadow instead. Although I am not completely satisfied as I did not have a choice in the matter and still will not have all 15 shades in one palette like I wanted, I am happy this situation is resolved.


Edit #2 (1/31/14): NARS is allowing me to return my palette for a full refund but cannot send me a replacement as they do not have any in stock. I will also not be purchasing a new one, as the palette isn't exceptional anyway, and I don't want to risk receiving another defective palette or one with inferior quality.


Edit #1 (1/29/14): I realized upon closer inspection and swatching that my palette may be defective, as I believe it actually contains an extra Coconut Grove where Mekong is supposed to be (last shade in second row). I've emailed NARS Customer Service and am waiting to hear back.

I'd been suffering from a bit of buyer's remorse ever since ordering The NARSissist Eyeshadow Palette the day it launched on NARS' website. I love a good neutral palette, and there's no doubt that at $79 for 15 shades, NARS' latest offering boasted more bang for your buck. However, when I started catching wind of the less than stellar quality of the palette, I began regretting my purchase before it even arrived at my doorstep. Now that I finally have the palette in hand to experiment with myself, I wanted to give my initial thoughts. 



The NARSissist Eyeshadow Palette contains 15 eyeshadows, each coming in at 0.03 oz (for reference, a full-sized NARS shadow is 0.07 oz). Without boring you with the math, this palette is a much better value for money than the duos, which are already a better value than the single shadows. 

From left to right, the shades in the top row: All About Eve I, Madrague II, Fez, Bali, Coconut Grove.
Middle row: Madrague I, Nepal, Ashes to Ashes, Brousse II, Mekong (actually another Coconut Grove in my palette).
Bottom row: Bellissima I, Llasa, Bad Behavior, Dogon II, Pandora II.
(Shades that currently exist in duos have a 'I' or 'II' next to their name to represent left/right shade in their duo. All others are currently available as singles.)



Top row: All About Eve I, Madrague II, Fez, Bali, Coconut Grove
Middle row: Madrague I, Nepal, Ashes to Ashes, Brousse II, Mekong (actually another Coconut Grove in my palette)
Bottom row: Bellissima I, Llasa, Bad Behavior, Dogon II, Pandora II

Keeping in mind that these are my initial thoughts and I have not yet worn these shadows on my eyes, the shades that left me wanting more based on swatching alone were Madrague II, Brousse II, Bellissima I and Bad Behavior. The rest of the shades ranged from good to great (some of the notably fantastic shades included Fez, Ashes to Ashes, Madrague I, Nepal and Mekong (the second Coconut Grove in my palette)).

Madrague II and Brousse II were noticeably stiff with poor color payoff in one swipe, while Bad Behavior needed to be built up quite a bit and Bellissima I was both stiff and powdery, and its glitter appeared chunky in real life.

Overall, although four of the fifteen shades did not meet my expectations and failed to live up to what I've grown to know as NARS' standard for quality, the palette itself is a beautiful compilation of a variety of cohesive neutrals. For the time being, I think it will stay in my collection as I play around with a few eye looks (one or two will surely make it on the blog, so keep your eyes peeled!). That means that my Pleasures of Paris Palette and Llasa single shadow may just make it into the blog sale pile in a few weeks :) 

I'm returning the palette.

NARS The NARSissist Eyeshadow Palette is available from Sephora for $79.

A New Love: Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

After strolling into quite possibly the most drool-worthy Sephora store I've ever seen in San Francisco with a Christmas gift card in tow, my eyes shot straight to one particular display - Giorgio Armani. I'd heard that Armani Beauty was available in some of the larger stores like NYC, but this was my first time seeing it for myself. Of course, I had access to Armani counters in department stores, but there's nothing like the constant peering eyes of preying SAs to push me towards the exit. So, with the freedom of finally being able to examine and experiment with the line in peace, I went to town and swatched and tested out many products I'd been interested in for quite some time, including their cult product - Luminous Silk Foundation.
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation boasts the ability to "capture the glow of perfect skin." Pretty serious claim, no? Its consistency is neither too liquid to be applied with a brush, nor too thick to be applied with fingers or a sponge. Although I've used all three aforementioned methods of application, stamping the foundation on then gently blending it in with the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge is currently my favorite. Luminous Silk blends in effortlessly and looks nearly undetectable on the skin. The finish is also somewhere in the middle - it's neither dewy nor matte, but appears incredibly natural with a touch of luminous glow. If you had healthy, perfect, model-esque skin, the kind that looks like it's never even heard of sun damage or age spots and somehow just seems to glow from within, it would look like this.

Bare skin (L) and after applying only Luminous Silk Foundation in 3.5
Luminous Silk has medium coverage that effectively conceals the minor redness around my nose and the acne scars on my chin. Blemishes and more serious problem areas still require concealer for a perfect canvas, but I'd imagine Luminous Silk has the perfect amount of coverage on its own for those with good to mildly spotty skin for everyday wear. I wear the shade 3.5, which is a good match for NC20-25.

The current state of my skin is fairly dry with a slightly oily t-zone, and Luminous Silk has the perfect balance of hydration and oil-controlling properties. It doesn't cling on to any dry patches and blends in seamlessly with the help of the Real Techniques sponge, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that my oiliest areas still remained shine-free for hours, only typically requiring one blot midday without any terribly detectable breakdown even by the end of the day. I haven't even felt the need for primer or powder. I'm not sure there will ever be a foundation that truly performs well on all skin types, but I think Luminous Silk comes darn close. Hourglass Immaculate and Dior Nude BB Creme better start watching their backs. There's a new favorite in town.

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation is available from their website for $60 (not available online at Sephora).

The Monday Post #7

Monday is by far the gloomiest day of the week for me, followed by Sunday simply because it precedes Monday. Hopefully, The Monday Post will give you some beauty inspiration and help you get through the week! 

Favorite beauty read/viewing: Sunday Girl's post on the new Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base literally has me drooling. Although the rose shade she reviewed looks lovely for pink-undertones, I have my eye on the peach or champagne one. And, I'm about 5 weeks behind on watching Youtube videos at the moment, so if you have any favorites from the past few weeks, feel free to link me up!

Beauty goal: I'll be back in Oregon in a few weeks, and I'd like to organize another blog sale once I'm back. I have far too many amazing products in my collection that continue to be neglected, and I'm determined to send them off to loving homes. Let the blog sale planning start now...

Product Rediscovery: Not exactly a product rediscovery, but more of a "tool" rediscovery - my digits. While testing out a new foundation, I wanted see how it applied with different tools (brush, sponge, etc.), so one day, I gave my fingers a shot. Unlike many other beauty bloggers I know, I've never been a huge fan of this method as I find foundation more difficult to blend and the necessary hand washing post-application a pain, but this time, I didn't hate it. And, when I have a particular unsightly spot to conceal, no brush or sponge does it as well as my fingers. Gently patting it on is the only way to get true full-coverage.

Beauty lust: I think RMS Beauty Living Luminizer needs to be mine soon. I've been wanting to try out RMS Beauty for ages now, and it looks like their iconic highlighter (and maybe a Lip2Cheek or two) is the perfect place to start. 

Most looking forward to: I just realized that in just under four short months, I'll be graduated! No more school for the rest of my life (hopefully). Woohoo!


Hope you all have a great week!

The Hot Pink to End All Hot Pinks.

I like to dabble in luxury brand lipsticks. Fancy schmancy packaging paired with an often great formula - what's not to like? Ahem, price tag, but nevermind that. I'll typically start off buying one shade that calls to me, just so I can say I've tried the formula, and occasionally, I'll add to the collection if it really impresses me (ie Dior Addict Extreme). In the case of my newest luxe lipstick acquisition, a purchase that was made a bit more bearable thanks to a Sephora VIB coupon, not only is the shade absolutely stunning, but the formula is one of the best I've ever tried. I'll say that again - the formula is one of the best I've ever tried.
Givenchy Le Rouge in Fuchsia Irrésistible

Givenchy Le Rouge in Fuchsia Irrésistible is a bright fuchsia with slight red undertones. It has an incredibly creamy formula that still manages to feel weightless on the lips and is unimaginably moisturizing. My lips continue to feel soft and hydrated even after the color has worn off. It has excellent longevity on the lips and doesn't bleed or feather, although due to its creaminess, it does tend to fade quite a bit after meals. It creates a smooth and plump look to the lips and never settles into lip lines. Its finish has the perfect amount of shine that's soft and natural, not glossy or tacky. Based on formula alone, Fuchsia Irrésistible beats out other hot pink lippie favorites by a long shot, such as MAC Girl About Town, MAC Show Orchid and Revlon Lollipop. And the cool undertone? My whiter teeth thank you.
Swatch above shown in the shade (L) and in direct sunlight

The rest of the products I wore with Fuchsia Irrésisitble today:
I wore Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in 3.5, aka the newest addition to my foundation wardrobe, with NYX Taupe Blush as contour, Tarte Exposed Blush and Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Powder in Candlelight as my highlight. I've been skipping powder lately due to the drier state of my skin, and the radiance and natural dewiness from both the foundation and lack of powder have been making me wonder why I didn't forgo powdering sooner. Love.

On my eyes, I have Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Grey Pearl on my lids, NYX Taupe Blush in the crease, and Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Perversion smudged into the upper lash line.
This may be the start of a dangerous addiction. Don't be surprised if you start seeing posts entitled "The Pinky Beige to End All Pinky Beiges" and "The Orangey Red to End All Orangey Reds," etc. Givenchy Le Rouge - I'm coming for you.

Givenchy Le Rouge in Fuchsia Irrésistible is available from Sephora for $36.

Osmia Organics Active Gel Toner

So, remember in yesterday's Top Skincare of 2013 post when I said I may have found the US' version of Indeed Labs Hydraluron, the ever-popular, yet elusive, hydration serum only available in the UK and Canada? That's what we're talking about today, ladies, and surprise surprise, it's made by one of my favorite skincare brands, Osmia Organics. (By the way, I swear I don't work for them. I just have serious love for their products.)
Osmia Organics Active Gel Toner is a gel that claims to provide "soothing moisture." Hell yes, says my skin. Hyaluronic acid (also the main ingredient in Hydraluron) and niacinamide (the main ingredient in another great hydration serum, DDF Amplifying Elixir) are accountable for reducing water loss and retaining moisture in skin cells, while a host of ingredients such as aloe, white tea extract and calendula soothe the skin. AGT was previously known as the Active Gel Nutrient Serum, but now, it includes the addition of gotu kola and rose of jericho to help provide exceptional redness/irritation relief and hydration, respectively.
Unlike other hydration serums I've used, Active Gel Toner is to be applied directly to damp skin immediately after cleansing. It has a fresh, slightly eucalyptus-like scent that I've fallen in love with, although it dissipates quickly. Once it's dry (takes about 30 seconds), a soft, light layer can be felt on the skin, and a serum or moisturizer should be used on top. Similarly to Hydraluron, AGT is meant to be the middle layer between bare skin and a moisturizer to enhance the activity of the moisturizer.

Since my skin has been exceptionally dry these past few weeks, I've been using AGT both morning and night. It wears well under makeup when used during the day, and when used overnight, I wake up with plump, smooth and happy skin. For me, AGT outperforms Caudalie S.O.S. Serum and is comparable to both Hydraluron and Vichy Aqualia Thermal Serum.

Although a bottle of AGT is pricier than a tube of Hydraluron, it also contains 1.7oz. of product compared to 1oz. (AGT actually worked out to be a better value for money when I did the math!), and I find that I need only a pea-sized amount of AGT for my entire face and neck, whereas I used about twice as much of Hydraluron.

You know how good AGT is? So good that when I realized I was running low on Hydraluron, I emailed my cousin in the UK to ask her to pick one up to ship to me. After two days of trialing AGT, I emailed her back to say that would no longer be necessary because I had found a more than suitable replacement.

So, there you have it. Osmia Organics has been holding the States' answer for the Hydraluron epidemic this whole time.

Osmia Organics Active Gel Toner is available from their website for $58.

Top Skincare of 2013

Skincare became a newly found beauty focus of mine in 2013. I went from spending years of depending heavily on Cetaphil and the Shu Uemura Fresh Cleansing Oil and rarely experimented with new skincare brands or products. Within a short year's time, I'm afraid I've actually unleashed some sort of skincare monster ;)
Beautysets - Top Skincare of 2013

(My apologies - Due to some awesome planning on my part, I just positioned the products into the collage so that they all fit; in other words, in no particular order that actually makes sense for the blog post. Yay me!)

It was difficult to narrow down my cleansers to choose a favorite, but in the end, Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel took home the crown. I adore using this luxurious cleanser for my morning cleanse in the cooler months or as a second cleanse at night. To remove my makeup (waterproof mascara included), the Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm completely stole my heart. I can't say that I hate that it's more easily accessible and affordable than another popular cleansing balm, yet performs just as well...*cough cough Emma Hardie*.....

Post-cleanse, slapping on some Hydraluron by Indeed Labs under my moisturizer or night cream was, quite literally, a dry skin savior, although I think I might have found a notable contender that's available in the States...stay tuned! Pai Rosehip Bioregenerate Oil was, hands down, my favorite facial oil of 2013. It provides hydration without heaviness, and with long-term use, I'm hopeful it may help lighten some of my scarring and help improve the overall appearance of my skin. The African Botanics Marula Intense Skin Repair Body Balm is my pick for best multipurpose balm (heals eczema, fades acne scars, provides intense hydration...need I say more?), and it continues to remain a staple in my routine. The most moisturizing and long lasting overnight lip balm I've ever used? Still C.O. Bigelow My Favorite Night Balm. I must be on at least tube #7.

Although the skin around my eyes suffered from some unfortunate hypersentivity reactions this year, thankfully, in the end, it re-warmed up to my second tube of the Pai Echium & Argan Gentle Eye Cream and it's been smooth sailing ever since. In terms of facial moisturizer, Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentrate prevailed over the others. Not only was it nourishing and hydrating enough for both morning and night, but I could always rely on it to soothe and never irritate my skin when it was acting out from other products I was testing out. It's like a little best friend that you know will never let you down. I dig it. In terms of facial treatments, I'm not sure I can really talk any more about this product, but the Osmia Organics Detox Exfoliating Mask is a complete 100% must-have, I-can't-imagine-my-life-without-you kind of product. Just buy it already.

Lastly, body favorites include the Osmia Organics Body Oils for hydration during the spring through early fall months. My favorite scent that I've tried is Light. In the dead of winter, it doesn't do quite enough for my insufferably dry skin, so I like to either switch it out with Ellovi Butter or best of all, layer Ellovi Butter on top of an Osmia oil. Yum.


Chanel Diapason Illusion d'Ombre Eyeshadow

I'm one of the few people who never went crazy for Chanel's Illusion d'Ombre Eyeshadows. Sure, Illusoire is a nice sultry, smokey shade, but I always preferred the much more affordable Buxom Stay There Eye Shadow formula over Chanel's. But, when swatches of Chanel's newest releases started circulating the blogosphere, my knees buckled at the sight of one particular shade.

Chanel Diapason is a gorgeous, warm, shimmering deep eggplant with an illuminating, slightly blue-toned sheen. It's no secret I'm a sucker for purples (they're a brown-eyed girl's best friend!), but Diapason's shimmer was so unexpected yet incredibly stunning in Temptalia's review that I succumbed to temptation, despite owning enough purple shadows to last well through my future granddaughters' lifetimes. 


Below, I applied Diapason all over my lid with my ring finger, and I had a bit of Laura Mercier Fresco blended into the crease as well. Applying Diapason with fingers or a fluffy brush yields a sheerer application where the shimmer is less prominent (think more run-of-the-mill purple), whereas patting the shadow on with a flat shader brush allows Diapason to appear more pigmented and multidimensional, similarly to how it does in the swatch. The shadow blends easily either way, has average to good lasting power (I always wear it over primer), and I don't experience any fallout.


If you're a purple shadow fan, I think it would be safe to say you'd probably also be a Diapason fan.

Chanel Illusion d'Ombre Eyeshadow in Diapason is available from Nordstrom for $36.

A Whisper of Color from Osmia Organics

I know what you're thinking - This is probably just another lip gloss is a squeezy tube. But, no, it's really not. Osmia Organics, maker of Honey-Myrrh Lip Repair, aka one of my top three lip balms, also makes lip gloss. Considering it's one of my favorite skincare brands (I quite literally love just about everything I've tried from them), I'm not surprised that even their lip gloss is brilliant.

Luster, a deep berry, was the original lip gloss shade released. I'd been meaning to try it for an age, but when Sarah Villafranco, founder of Osmia Organics, hinted that more shades were on their way, I held out for the newest releases: Simmer, a peachy orange, and Whisper, a soft pink.

Straight from the tube, Whisper has a rather thick balm consistency that melts into a softer gloss texture when applied to the lips. As with Luster and Simmer, although the gloss shades appear intimidatingly dark and vibrant in the tube, Osmia's lip glosses are delicately sheer, providing just the right amount of color to liven up the complexion. The comfortable feel of Whisper on my lips is so far from gloss-like; it's supremely moisturizing, light, cushiony and non-sticky, and the soft shine reads healthy rather than makeup-y.


In all honesty, the formula of Osmia's lip glosses is so nourishing that I've come to think of Whisper more as a lip balm than as a gloss. The subtle hint of color is just an added bonus. Lovers of gloss-balm hybrids, such as the Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfectors, would love these.


Osmia Organics Whisper Lip Gloss is available from their website for $18.

A Different Body Butter: Ellovi Butter

Once the winter months start rolling around, I set out on a mission to find products that will quench my dehydrated and thirsty skin. My usual body lotions and oils that keep my skin supple and content in the warmer months no longer suffice. Just as I used up the last traces of my beloved Haus of Glois Pumpkin Butter and was on the market for a replacement heavy-duty body moisturizer, Taylor's review of Ellovi Butter piqued my interest, and shortly thereafter, my own jar of Butter landed on my doorstep. 

Ellovi Butter is a unique, handmade body butter that consists of only six ingredients and contains no water or preservatives. In the jar, it has the consistently of solid butter, but once warmed up and applied to skin, it melts into a consistency more similar to a dry oil. Skin feels just slightly greasy until the body butter has been fully absorbed. There are no added fragrances, and Butter's scent is mostly that of coconut oil.

Butter's 6 ingredients:
Macademia oil
Coconut oil
Hemp seed oil
Marula oil
Non-GMO corn starch
Shea butter


When applied to dry skin, I find that Butter doesn't spread very easily to cover much surface area, meaning quite a bit of product is needed for each application. And, as my skin has been especially dry these past few weeks, I've noticed that although Butter leaves my skin looking moisturized, it still feels quite dry and itchy. 

To combat this, I then began applying Butter immediately after stepping out of the shower onto damp to wet skin. Not only did the moisture help the body butter to spread more easily, requiring less product per application, I found that Butter was much more effective when used as a sealant to capture the moisture left over from my shower. I think layering it over a light body lotion or oil would have amazing, additive heavy-duty moisturization effects for those who may need it. My skin feels nourished and hydrated right up until my next shower.

Ellovi also claims Butter can be used as a facial moisturizer, and although I haven't tested it out in that way, I have used it on my lips with impressive, albeit not incredibly long lasting, results.


Those with averagely dry skin may enjoy having Butter on hand simply to alternate with their usual go-to body moisturizers (think nice-to-have type of product), while those with irritatingly dry, itchy and dehydrated skin will find Butter to be a godsend. Just remember to apply to damp skin (or lightly moisturized skin) to seal in the hydration.


Ellovi Butter is available from their website for $26.

Top 13 of 2013

Happy New Year to each and every one of you! Though it's a bit late, I still wanted to post my overall favorite beauty products of last year. My top 13 products of 2013 included nine products newly discovered within the year and four products I continued to love from 2012. Enjoy!



Beautysets - WWFM's Top 13 of 2013


In terms of complexion favorites, the Diorskin Nude BB Creme and Hourglass Immaculate Foundation were both staples in my routine. Although I think I probably favored Dior's effortlessly light and slightly dewy finish just a bit more, the Hourglass was a godsend for my oily skin during the summer months. 

I discovered the Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer this year, and it's also the best under-eye concealer I've tried to date. For blemishes and redness, however, the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer continued to prevail. 

Since I reached a whole new level of pale this year, my love for the warm glow achieved only with Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Powder in 30 surpassed any obsession I previously had with my other bronzers or bronzer substitutes. Burberry Light Glow Tangerine Blush was a 2012 purchase that was hands down my most loved blush in 2013, and Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Powder's subtle, barely-there glow was a highlighting favorite.

On my lips, I wore NYX Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee most days for a moisturized and healthy looking pout, and Bite Beauty Cashmere Lip Cream in Sancerre was a long-lasting, bold lip go-to.

Although my choice eyebrow product changed a couple times in 2013, in the end, Shu Uemura Hard Formula Eyebrow Pencil in Stone Gray ended the year on top. As a surprise to no one who is familar with this blog, LORAC PRO Palette continued its reign in 2013 as my eyeshadow palette of choice, and Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Volumizing Mascara and Physicians Formula Eye Boost 2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum rounded out the 2012 purchases that made it to the top in 2013.
