Edward Bess Ultra Dewy Complexion Perfector


Edward Bess recently released a new face cream he calls the Ultra Dewy Complexion Perfector ($56 for 1.79 fl. oz./53 ml). I have been dying to try this for several months but wasn't able to get to a counter to test in person until mid-March at Neiman Marcus Beverly Hills. The Ultra Dewy Complexion Perfector is lightweight tinted cream that acts like a tinted moisturizer/foundation. It has light diffusing properties that makes the skin look glowing and flawless. It comes in four shades, I found both #1 Light and #2 Medium disappeared on my skin when applied along the jawline. I felt like I was in between shades but decided to go with the darker option Medium 02 since I have a slight tan now. The finish is transparent so more forgiving if you don't have an exact match.

I've been testing for a few weeks now and have been impressed with the results. Although it's quite sheer and almost transparent-looking when blended, when applied all over the face it brightens and evens out the entire face in a natural but noticeable way. I found that it made the skin look healthier with a slight dewy glow (not too dewy though). My skin has been relatively clear now so I don't need much coverage (even though I usually like medium-to-full coverage for foundation and powder). I do think it's too sheer for my taste to wear alone (this is just my preference), but it is sufficient with just a light dusting of loose powder to set. I've been using the Edward Bess Cream in Medium 02 several ways:
  • all over with powder foundation dusted lightly on top (I like Dolce & Gabbana and Chanel)
  • all over with a heavier foundation layered in areas that I want more coverage
  • all over with a soft loose powder layered on top

Lasting power is like most other foundations. It holds up quite well until a little after noon and needs a bit of a powder touch up after lunch time. For color comparisons on other foundations I've used/been using:

Shades I used to use but are too light now:
  • Edward Bess Satin Cream in Beige is more neutral/olive compared to the Medium Complexion cream (I'm out at the moment so I don't have it to swatch)
  • NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Alaska was the best match for me when the Tinted Moisturizers first came out, although it was slightly too light (I usually mixed in a little darker foundation to make it work), this is lighter and more yellow than the Edward Bess Medium
  • Dolce & Gabbana Cream Foundation in Warm 100 (reviewed here) is more yellow and lighter, it's a bit too light for me now (although the powder version in Warm 100 is still a good match) 
Shades I currently use:
I was hesitant to post swatch comparisons because it's difficult to tell what a cream looks like unless blended out and blending out usually makes the foundation disappear on the skin. Please note that the swatches below are not blended out to show what the color looks like straight from the tube. Each has different intensity which affects the way it looks once blended out. Also note that the inside of my arm where I swatch is about 1.5x lighter than my face and the rest of my body right now (I tan quickly).

Left to right: Dolce & Gabbana Cream Foundation Warm 100, NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Alaska, NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Groenland, Edward Bess Ultra Dewy Complexion Perfector in Medium, Chanel Perfection Lumiere 30 Beige, Urban Decay Naked Beauty Balm.


Overall I give it a huge thumbs up because I love the way it makes my skin glow. I would have liked to see a few more color options but the sheerness allows the skin to show through so it's quite forgiving if you don't have an exact match. Based on my recollection of in-store testing, Light seemed to be about 1.5 shades lighter than Medium. Both disappeared on the back of my hand with a little bit of blending.

I purchased my cream from Neiman Marcus Beverly Hills. It's also available online at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman and Sephora (ingredients listed on Sephora's website).

Have you tried Edward's Ultra Dewy Complexion Perfector? If so, what shade do you use?

Tom Ford Lip Color Shine: Quiver, Insidious and Frolic


Anything Tom Ford releases these days catches my eye immediately. The new semi-transparent Lip Color Shines ($48 each for .12 oz/3.5g at Saks, Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman) released a month ago have been on my radar but the insanely high price tag had me hesitant to buy before trying. Still, after looking at swatches online for hours, I decided to order a few online. I love Tom Ford Lipsticks (swatched here) and Lip Glosses (swatched here) so I figured there was at least one I was bound to fall in love with. I've started with Quiver (a pale cool pink), Insidious (a brighter peach), and Frolic (a nude peach).

All the lip shines have a delicious subtle vanilla cake scent (soft, not strong) that lingers for about 20 minutes before fading. The texture of the Tom Ford Lip Color Shines is smooth and creamy, slightly thick, but on the soft side. All the colors I picked have quite a bit of shimmer in the tube, on the lips there is noticeable shimmer, but it's subtle (not frost). The finish is quite glossy, but the slightly thick texture helps the color adhere to the lips. The colors are on the sheer/natural side but show up.

Close ups and swatches, here you can see the shimmer:





(Sorry for the inconsistent lighting, lip swatches are really difficult for me.) Compared to YSL's Rouge Volupte Shines and Chanel's Rouge Coco Shines, I would say Tom Ford's new sheer lipsticks are definitely similar. The differences:
  • YSL has the most pigment and darker/brighter color range, these glide on the smoothest
  • Chanel has a more diverse color range on the neutrals/roses, colors are slightly sheerer than Tom Ford
  • Tom Ford has the thickest texture, strongest scent and a great neutral range
In terms of lasting power, strongest to weakest is YSL, Tom Ford and then Chanel. However since all are on the sheer/glossy side, the lasting power is still medium like most glossy sheer lipsticks. I'm overall pleased with these, although YSL's Rouge Volupte Shines win my heart for all over formula, color and price (Tom Fords come in close second).

The price will kill your wallet. For a sheer lipstick, I really expected the price points to be a lot lower. If you're looking for a similar color to these but want more pigment, here are my suggestions:
  • Tom Ford Quiver - look at Dolce & Gabbana's Shine lipsticks in Charm, Rosebud, Love or Emotion
  • Tom Ford Insidious - check out Chanel Flirt Rouge Coco Shine or Dior Diablotine
  • Tom Ford Frolic - check out Burberry's Cameo
I like really these for the quality, feel and natural shine but feel the $48 would be better spent on a regular Tom Ford Lipstick or used towards their blushes. For some reference Karla Sugar and Wondegondigo have all the shades swatched on their blogs.

Did you try or pick up any of the Tom Ford Lip Color Shines? What's your favorite shade?

Dior Iridescent Leather #539


Dior Iridescent Leather (#539) 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette was released as a limited-edition item for fall 2008 with the Dandy Lady collection. It is possibly one of the most glorious beautiful palette of shimmery neutrals that has ever been released. I know many have pined over this one if they missed out. The good news is that this is back for a limited time in very limited quantities. It's available now in the US as an exclusive to the Dior Boutique in Vegas at the Palazzo, Saks stores and Saks.com (check the drop-down function online).

The palette now retails for $60 for 6g/0.21 oz (back in 2008, it retailed for $54). All the shades are highly metallic but still easy to wear. On me it's a warmer neutral, but on darker skins this pulls more cool-toned. I haven't done a side-by-side swatch comparison of the original versus the new, but the shades do appear to be identical (they also have the same number).


Since I've already featured this before, I won't be re-doing detailed swatches. I did however try to pull a few comparisons to shades from Urban Decay's Naked palettes. I could not find any dupes but you can probably get a similar effect with Urban Decay Sin, Virgin, Suspect, YDK and Darkhorse.


For additional reference, here are some prior posts that might help along with some swatches/photos from other blogs/sites:
  • Here is Iridescent Leather compared to Edward Bess Cosmic Bliss
  • Here is Iridescent Leather compared to Dior Earth Reflection and Dior Rosy Tan
  • Swatches are featured on Karla Sugar
  • Swatched on darker skin at Makeup and Beauty Blog
  • Additional reviews on Makeupalley
Quantities are very limited to (I recommend you buy sooner than later):
  • The Dior Boutique in Vegas at the Palazzo ask for Massiel at (702)-734-1102
  • Saks stores and Saks.com (check the drop-down function online) 
Happy shopping/hunting!

Dior Vernis Releases for Spring-Summer


Dior has released several new shades for spring-summer this month. I am currently testing some new nail products so won't have time to do a comprehensive detailed review since I'm reserving my fingers for testing. I did want to share a few swatches to help. There are several shades exclusive to certain locations in the US and therefore rather limited, you might want to order sooner than later so you don't miss out. All retail for $24 each.

Sparkling Shine Collection, available at all Dior counters and online locations consists of:
  • Princess 553 is a sparkling light baby pink
  • Spring Ball 343 is a high shimmer baby peach
  • Délice 433 is a gorgeous medium peach-orange shimmer
  • Diablotine 643 (reviewed here) is a bright coral red shimmer
Two shades from the Asia Exclusive DiorSnow collection have been launched in the US at Saks Stores, Saks.com and the Dior Palazzo Boutique in Las Vegas (ask for Massiel at (702) 734-1102 she's amazing).
  • Nymphea 307 is a pale baby blue with a slight hint of aqua (see it on AudreyEleven and comparisons on Kais Obsessions)
  • Crystal 205 is a transparent frosted snow-white sparkle (see it on AudreyEleven)
Sephora has launched a series of Color Vision collections focused around color themes. They have released an exclusive lilac shade which is a repromote of a Japan exclusive.
I've acquired all except the lilac shade (not sure about pale lavendars, seems a bit too pastel, will have to test in person). For now, here are the live bottle photos and swatches on a nail wheel. I hope this helps!


Shades swatched in outdoor lighting:


Did you pick up any of the spring shades from Dior? If you tried (or bought) the lilac one, what did you think?

Late-Week Lust List

My late-week (mid-week, didn't realize the week is already almost over) lust list includes a mix of tried and true staples along with some new items that are extremely tempting. My resolve is weakening, especially because of Nordstrom's Triple Points event going on now until the 24th (I have some Dior and NARS items waiting in store from pre-sales that I need to pick up soon).
  • Diptyque Candles ($28 to $60 for the clear jars) are among my favorite candles. I've burned through Baies and Figuier several times over and the jars are easily recyclable into beautiful brush or pen holders. These days I'm always have a candle burning while I'm at home whether it's Diptyque, Henri Bendel, Jo Malone or something else new. I've never tried the Wick Trimer yet, but figured it's about time I purchase one. Do any of you have experiences with candle trimmers?
  • Chanel Top Coat ($26) is a staple glossy must-have that extends the life of my manicures that doesn't cause shrinkage. Mine lasted several years but just started to thicken (I think I didn't close the lid tightly enough with the last few uses). I need to replenish.
  • Dior has re-vamped their Addict Glosses ($29.50) once again. I need Nuit Boreale because it looked so gorgeous on Makeup and Beauty Blog (although it's probably an existing shade re-incarnated with a different name).
  • NARS Satin Lip Pencils ($25 each) have been all the rage. I love how they look on Café Makeup and Temptalia. I already own Isola Bella, a gorgeous nude-pink and love it. I need a few more of the neutrals. These look like an easy goof-proof throw-it-on kind of pencil.

Did you buy anything for Triple Points? I've love to live vicariously through your picks :)

Chanel Taboo #583 Le Vernis



There are a series of mini-releases coming out from Chanel this spring-to-summer. One is called Revelation de Chanel which features several glossimers and a new nail polish called Taboo #583 ($27 for 13 ml/0.4 fl oz, made in France). I found Taboo Le Vernis in Beverly Hills this past weekend at Neiman Marcus (although they did not have testers). It's currently online at Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus and should be arriving in stores near you this week.

Taboo #583 is a glorious vibrant purple metallic. There is a rich deep purple base that is infused with an iridescent red plum sheen loaded with micro sparkles of silver, blue and purple. Taboo's shimmer actually shows up on the nails (yay!) but it's not over-the-top. In the sunlight you can see flashes of plum-red in the bottle. On the nails it's pure purple, the red isn't visible but it does prevent this from looking too dark. It's that red iridescence and sparkle that brings this shade to life even though it is a darker shade. The complexity of this shade made it a bit difficult to photograph, here are several shots to give you a better idea.

Coverage is rich and smooth. Application was flawless with two coats. I used with Deborah Lippmann's Rehydrating Base Coat and the Dior's new Gel Top Coat. I did see a tiny bit of shrinkage on three fingers (but not all) with the top coat.


Swatches with any kind of lighting brightens the effect of the shimmer. Taboo's shimmer is visible, but it's still a dark purple on the nails without any visible red metallic flashes (except with a flash or in direct sunlight).


In direct sunlight:


Under artificial light:


Another shot with flash, you can see the complex rich sparkles:


Under artificial light:


I couldn't find a dupe from Chanel or Dior, although I suspect there might be some OPI shades that are similar (I didn't pull any to compare). Taboo has a beautiful rich sparkle that I find unique. Here is Taboo next to Vendetta and Strong:


Three sets of nail swatches, all the same order and shades, just different lighting to show you the various undertones, shimmers and colors: Chanel Provocation (reviewed here), Chanel Strong, Chanel Vendetta, Dior Licorice (reviewed here), Tom Ford Dominatrix (reviewed here).




I adore Taboo. It's a beautiful vibrant yet deep purple that glows without looking fluorescent.  It does have a fall-ish feel (rather than spring or summer) but I still love it. I am dying to check out the glossimers in the Revelation de Chanel collection. Hopefully this week!


I've seen reports on other boards that many just started to find have Taboo Le Vernis at their local counters (saks, nordstrom, neimans etc). Right now, you can find it online at online at Nordstrom (free standard shipping) and Neiman Marcus (free standard shipping until 3/31/2013 with code MARCHFS). It should arrive at all Chanel counters, boutiques and online retailers soon.

Will you be picking up Taboo? If you have, did you find any dupes?

Dior Diablotine 643 and Gel Top Coat

Affiliate Links        

Dior's nail polishes seem to keep getting better and better with each release. For spring they have released some killer shades for lips and nails this spring with their Sparking Shine collection. There are new shades of lipstick, a new revamped version of their addict gloss and new items for nails. The new nail items include Princess, Délice, Diablotine and Spring Ball ($24 each). In addition, Dior has released a new Gel Top Coat ($24). I didn't plan on purchasing the Gel Top Coat, but my Dior rep insisted that it was the most amazing thing ever, so it came home with me from Nordstrom. I decided to try Dior Diablotine 643 first along with the Gel Top Coat.


Dior Diablotine 643 is a bright coral pink loaded with highly-shine shimmer. I love that the shimmer is visible. The sparkling quality reminds me of those super shimmery Celestial Lights glossimers Chanel released years ago (some are still available I think, you can see them here, my first post ever!). The pigment of Diablotine is incredible with full coverage with two coats. I swatched all briefly before applying Diablotine on all nails and found the finish wasn't quite as shiny as most Dior nail polishes. It's still covers the nail fully with smooth finish, but dries down to a satin like sheen (not high gloss). You definitely need to add a top coat for a good shiny finish. In terms of dupes, I would say there's no exact dupe, I'd say it's a cross between Dior Riviera & Lucky, but loaded with bright shimmers.

Dior's Gel Top Coat is really amazing. I've never had a gel manicure so I can't compare this to the real thing. I tried the Dior top coats that came with the Catwalk summer trios from 2011 and wasn't a huge fan. I thought they were just ok so I was skeptical of the Gel version. After putting it to the test, I can say hands down, the Gel version is a million times better. This applied effortlessly, smoothly and gave a ultra-high shine with that cushy glossy finish. I applied this on my latest manicure using Deborah Lippmann's Hydrating Base Coat, two coats of Diablotine (let this dry for 3 minutes) and then one coat of the Gel Top Coat. Drying time seemed to be faster than most, but since I tend to be on the careful side, let the nails dry for 15 minutes before touching anything. On Day 1, the finish was ultra glossy. On Day 2, there was still a high shine but not quite as glossy as the first day. By the end of Day 5, my manicure is still as fresh-looking as the first day without any tip wear, chipping or peeling. When it comes to top coats, I'm super picky about any type of shrinkage, I'm pleased to report there was no shrinkage with the Gel Top Coat although I haven't tested it with other brands or Dior cream shades. I don't think I've ever had a top coat extend the life of a manicure this long.

Some more photos of Diablotine:


Dior Diablotine (2 coats) with Gel Top Coat (1 coat):



A few comparisons to: Tom Ford Ginger Fire, Chanel Holiday, Chanel Dragon, Dior Psychadelic Orange, Dior Plaza and Chanel Fracas. (Note, I didn't include Lucky or Riviera, they wouldn't photograph accurately this time for some reason, Diablotine is like Lucky+Riviera mixed, but frosted with multidimensional shimmer.)


Dior's Sparkling Shine collection is available now at Dior counters and boutiques. I purchased my items from Nordstrom. If you have a wishlist developing you might want to take advantage of Nordstrom's Triple Points next week - many counters will be having gifts with purchases in store (I'm not sure what it is this time). I recommend calling your local counter to find out. Another good place to order is the Dior Boutique at the Palazzo in Vegas they have Iridescent Leather quint (yes it's back!) along with some other new exclusive nail shades in Nymphea/Cristal and eye singles.

Did you pick up Dior Diablotine? Or the new Gel Top Coat?

Estée Lauder Heat Wave Illuminating Powder Gelée (Limited Edition)

Affiliate Links        
It's only March yet some summer beauty collections have started to arrive in stores. Estée Lauder's Bronze Goddess collection has a mix of beautiful bright and bronzey shades. Being a huge fan of the gelée powders, quickly picked up the new limited-edition Heat Wave Illuminating Powder Gelée ($40 for 0.21 oz/6 g, also online at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and Estee Lauder). Heat Wave has a beautiful embossed pattern like sun rays. It's a luminous pale gold champagne in the compact. It swatches true to the color in the pan. I expected to fall in love with it completely, especially after swatching on my hand in store - it was like wearing sunshine on my hand. However, on the face I found it a bit too sharp and frosty (I tested with the sponge applicator, soft fluffy brushes and skunk brushes). It does layer beautifully over a cream bronzer, but I think I'm at the right amount of tan to be too dark for this to look natural. I'm all for visible shimmers, however this one emphasized my pores and looked slightly too metallic on my skin. I do think it will suit fairer skins better. Money wasn't wasted though, this has just the right amount of glitz and sparkle to wear on the eyes. The frost factor is similar to that of the paler Armani Eyes to Kill Shadows (Heat Wave is just sheerer and not quite as frosty). Your mileage will vary with this one depending on your skintone.



Comparisons to some other gold/champagne gelee highlighters. All the ones shown below were limited-edition, I'm not sure that they will be easy to find these days, but if you already own some - you may want to shop your stash before caving on Heat Wave. MAC's Whisper of Gilt is almost identical to Estee Lauder's Heat Wave. I prefer the MAC even though it's still quite frosty. The Estee Lauder Heat Wave has some tiny gold micro sparkles (these are really tiny) that emphasize my pores. The MAC is more metallic all the way through.


Here's a simple look that I've did last week. It includes a few favorites:

I'm overall pleased with Estée Lauder's Heat Wave. Even though it doesn't work out for my face (for everyday at least), it's a lovely eye highlighter/shadow with excellent lasting power.

Did you pick up anything from Estée Lauder's Bronze Goddess collection? Did you like Heat Wave or did you find it too similar to what you already own? Note it is a limited-edition product. I recommend you try soon before it sells out. You can find it in store now at most Estee Lauder counters. Right now it's online as well at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and Estee Lauder.

Guerlain Terracotta 4 Seasons Tailor-Made Bronzing Powder 00 Nude and 02 Naturel-Blondes


Guerlain has revamped their Terracotta 4 Seasons Bronzers ($75 each for 10 g/0.35 oz, made in France) this year and released some new shades for spring-summer. I have not had much experience with Guerlain's terracotta bronzers (except for a few seasonal limited ones) even though I'm obsessed with bronzers in all shades, formulas and finishes. This is the first time I've looked into the Terracotta Bronzer line from Guerlain. For this new release, there are six shades available. Two of the older shades have been re-named (sorry I'm not sure which ones have been repromoted), and four new colors have been added. I picked up the two lightest shades from Neimans, Terracotta 4 Seasons in Nude 00 and Naturel-Blondes 02.


Nude 00 is light quad with three tan shades and one pink shimmer. It's fairly light. I have olive medium skin and currently use Chanel B30, Dolce & Gabbana Warm 100 and NARS Tinted Moisturizer in Alaska. I found Nude 00 to be extremely natural on me applying more like a nude blush rather than a bronzer. The finish is satiny leaning more on the matte side but not flat. Those who detest shimmer in their blush/bronzer will love the finish of the 4 Seasons bronzers.






Naturel-Blondes 02 is the second lightest option. All shades are medium tans (very similar). The bottom right corner has slight shimmer. It's a warm but natural bronzer. On me it's still on the natural side but true to bronzer form. Swatches below will make it seem on the orangey side. On the face it warms up the skin but doesn't look orange at all. On me it's goof proof. The color is layerable but it seems to be one of those shades that is impossible to mess up or overdo.


Each shade in the quads were a bit too sheer to swatch individually on the arm. On the face it's easier to swirl the brush in a circular motion to mix all shades within each palette and then apply to the face. I've found that I can wear these alone without any layering of other blushes or creams.

Here are a few swatches, these were applied with a soft fluffy brush:



The Terracotta 4 Seasons are more matte than the Terracotta Light shades (mosaic looking bronzers) but have a similar finish in terms of pigment/intensity. I have two of the Terracotta Light shades, Blondes and Sun Blondes to compare.


I had some challenges capturing the true effect of each. There is a softness to each shade that my camera cannot capture. The Blondes and Sun Blondes have a noticeable luminous glow on the face, it might not be apparent below.


I dug through some of my current favorites to compare. Colors will vary depending on your skintone and also undertones. I have a lot of olive/yellow. Note the Guerlain was swatched with a slightly heavier hand to show the undertone. On the face they do not apply quite as intense.


I am one who loves all kinds of bronzers, even ones that are more dramatic and stronger. The Guerlain 4 Seasons shades I chose looked darker in the store and in finger/arm swatches compared to what you see when you apply on the face. They are well pigmented but still extremely soft in color. I think they are among the softest bronzers I own (MAC Golden is one of the softest in color, but I think it is because it matches my skintone closely). Lasting power was quite good. These are heavily scented with a powdery scent. I have a super sensitive nose but I found the scent faded after 5-10 minutes.

I had expected Nude 00 and Naturel-Blondes 02 to look darker and more dramatic on the face. Instead I found them to be more on the natural side. I have to admit the other colors instore looked extremely dark, but I almost wish I had tried the darker ones first. At a high price of $75 I highly recommend that you try before buying. I know I will get a lot of use out of the two I purchased. The texture of the 4 Seasons Bronzers is very luxurious and soft. They apply flawlessly. I like that the compacts are sturdy enough that I feel comfortable carrying one in my purse. After testing for a week or so, I like them, but it's not love ... yet. I personally prefer the Blondes/Sun Blondes even though the effect/finish is completely different.

For quick reference, here is a photo of all the ones in store. Some with the same names might look different because of the reflection from my iPhone flash:


Guerlain 4 Seasons Bronzers are available at counters now. I saw the entire lineup at Nordstrom and Neimans. I've heard it has also arrived at the Guerlain Boutique in Las Vegas. Currently it's only showing up at 2 locations online at Nordstrom.com and Saks.com. I suspect it will show up at more locations online soon.

Have you checked out Guerlain's Summer Collection for the Terracotta release? Have you been a long-time Terracotta Bronzer user? I'd love to hear what your favorites are (or have been) and your skintone.
