Mint & got £23000 to spare?
No, not on somebody, but on something; Something fabulous, something sexy……
Yes, I am talking about This Row Alligator backpack, for merely £23000. Hermes Birkin bag? That’s so yesterday.
Another earthy eye palette coupled with rosy cheek & lips.
This time it’s Chanel Les 4 Ombres 33 Prelude & Joues Contraste 68 Rose Ecrin.
Introducing Lancome L’Absolu Nu 202 Beige Tulle, on my lips, this turns out rather pinkish with a hint of brown.
I don’t normally line my top lash root, but today I had used the darkest shade in Prelude wet as a liner.
Some indoor pictures as well……

I had used Guerlain Parure Gold Radiance Foundation SPF15, such a good base with superb coverage yet appears soft & natural.
NARS has introduced Silver Odyssey, a coupling of 2 limited-edition exclusive products, Via Crispi Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner and Space Odyssey Nail Polish, created in honor of Fashion’s Night Out 2011 and inspired by the photography of Guy Bourdin.
Try coupling silver & red or bright pink, like the Bento Box set.
Some old time favorites were salvaged from my recent ramble through the makeup treasure chest.
NARS Portobello eyeshadow duo.
Here’s me wearing NARS Portobello, a very mute & barely there beige; A trusted earthy tones palette to define & sculpt the lids. No surprises, but fail proof & office safe.
I am good to go with a touch of Chanel Rose Ecrin over the cheeks & a smear of Nubo Instant Lip Perfection SPF 15.
A bold look, with 5 just products.
It’s all about lips for this FOTD.
Since my lips are going to be in the limelight, I had used some extremely understated blusher & eyeshadow with a single coat of mascara for the rest of my features; I had even gone to the extreme of not powdering my complexion.
It’s amazing how a strong bright hue could lift your mood & cheer you up.
My version of a quick & easy approach for a bold, dramatic effect. It only takes about 5-10 minutes, yet the impact is full on ( May be loud is more appropriate )
I had dusted a layer of Shiseido Luminizing Satin Eye Colour VI720 Ghost over my lids, just to brighten them up a bit. How ironical? A shade named Ghost over the windows to your soul.
RMK Dusty Bright Colour Blusher Ex-01 Beige Pink was used on the apples of the cheeks for a sheer wash of colour & definition; You could see that I had used it for contouring as well by simply extending it up to my temples from the cheek bones.
I cannot rave enough about the fresh, luminous finish from Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua ( My shade is B30 – Beige Sable ) & the star of the post - Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture 27 Soft Fuchsia.
My lips are usually dry & patchy due to neglect & my sheer laziness, but 2 coats of Rouge Couture Pur ( straight application from the tube ) cover a multitudes of sins.
I just realized that I had blogged more than 1000 posts since I started VimS 3 years ago.
Throughout these years & through my blog, I had met / known some great people. The energy has always been positive and I had a real good time blogging & surfing. So much to discover, so much to appreciate.
Nice meeting you all & thanks for following.
