FAQ & DISCLAIMER

About Me

My name is Sophia, and I am in my early 30s. I am from Singapore and I am the sole writer of this blog.

About this Blog

I started this blog in 2006, I like to use a wide range of brands though I seem to have a growing preference for higher-end brands in recent years. I also like to share interesting things I have come across about makeup and beauty.

Currently The Makeup Blogette receives 39,000 unique views monthly or 2,238,932 views and counting.

My Makeup Style

I like classic looks (neutral tones on eyes, anything goes for lips & cheeks), though occasionally I try out dramatic/ statement looks.  I believe that a flawless base is the key to achieving great makeup looks.  I also believe that if you don't have great skin to start with, fake it with a good foundation routine, and even greater skincare.  I am currently loving Clarins & Lancome skincare products, and Vichy NormaDerm for tackling with breakouts.

What Cameras do I use?

Most of the pictures you see in post 2010 entries are taken with my Canon G-11.  Previously I was using Canon Ixus 80.  I do post some pictures which are taken with my iphone4 which I will state in that particular entry.  I have stopped watermarking my pictures as of 2011, because I think watermarks are ugly in general, and does not prevent people from stealing my pictures if they wish to.  I just take it as a compliment that my pictures are even worth stealing in the first place. I might look into getting a Canon EOS next year, not just for blogging purposes, but I also like photography in general.

My Favourite Makeup Brand(s)

It is hard to name just one, but I like NARS, Chanel, Illamasqua and the ocasional Guerlain, Dior & Urban Decay item.  I own quite a stash of MAC items, but recently I have stopped catching up with their collections, and I much prefer to splurge on a few really outstanding items.

Where to find me

Twitter (link button above!)  Email (stated above!)  Instagram (makeup_blogette)

I have no official Facebook fan page, and currently have no intention to start one at all.  The Makeup Blogette remains my personal hobby and property, so as such, I don't believe in having a Facebook fanpage for it.

Final Disclaimer

I bought/ paid for all of the products mentioned in this blog. I am not affliated to any company. If certain products are sent to me for review purposes, I will say so and express my honest opinions about them. In any case, I will only review and showcase the products which I have personally tried and tested, and enjoy using. I do not get paid to review anything.

No ads, no paid links etc please.  I am in charge of all content and pictures here.

I am not a makeup artist, nor do I have any professional training in makeup.

    NEW Dior Golden Jungle Fall 2012 [Information & Photos]

    I know it is terribly early to start introducing fall collections, but we got to get going, and first to come up, is the Dior Fall 2012 makeup collection.  

    Spoiler Alert, if you are into exotic jungle themes, animal prints, rich earthy colours, you are going to fall in love with this collection.   

    In February 1947, in the Christian Dior salons on the Avenue Montaigne, Monsieur Christian Dior presented his first collection to the international press. Along with the Huit and Corolle lines that would inaugurate the era of the New Look, the couturier revealed another of his favourite themes: LEOPARD PRINT. Fashion editors were smitten, the room burst into applause and women rediscovered the pleasure of seduction.

    Avant-garde, sophisticated and sensual, the JUNGLE MOTIF has been one of the trademark signatures of the House of Dior from its debut. Actress Marlene Dietrich and the muse and friend of Monsieur Dior, Mitzah Bricard, were its first fervent ambassadresses. With each decade and runway show, variations of leopard print, in dots or all-over patterns, continue to be cleverly reinterpreted by Dior Couture.

    Gold is another essential basic at Dior. It is timeless, caught between precision and excess, sophistication and impertinence... Gold has always transformed the Dior woman into an idol, enhancing her figure and lighting up her face.

    In the Dior Autumn/Winter 2012 makeup collection, Tyen revamps the jungle motif with a passionate touch: infused with gold, this ultra-chic animal print becomes even more sophisticated. Incredibly feline and a tad wild... The Golden Jungle Look embodies the luxury of the Urban Jungle, pushed to the extreme.

    A glamorous sign, a Dior manifesto: this winter, embody the Golden Jungle.





    Star product: THE GOLDEN JUNGLE PALETTE

    In its precious case, the Golden Jungle Palette captures the essence of the modern jungle. The trio of matt, pearly and iridescent eyeshadows sculpt the eyelid, and feature a leopard motif. For the gloss, nude sheerness and shine accentuate the radiance of the lips. Sensuality is taken up a notch.

    Golden Jungle Palette in 002 Golden Brown


    5 COULEURS EYES

    Khaki reflections structure the eyes with the new 5 Couleurs Designer. Meanwhile, the legendary 5 Couleurs explores rays of sunlight smouldering over the savannah with golds, copper and browns. The attitude is feline and more captivating than ever. Simply dazzling.

    308 Khaki Design


    3 COULEURS EYES

    3 Couleurs comes in a new version to create trendy eyes with a naturally graphic glow, as seen during the last runway shows. The sliding case of 3 Couleurs Glow opens to reveal the ultimate fashion ensemble: two new harmonies of eyeshadow, highlighter and liner to make the eyes sparkle with a wet glimmer and trace them with a 50s-style line. Eyelids take on a guaranteed wild and incredibly fashionable look.

    VERNIS


    Golden Jungle down to the fingertips...
    The must-have of the season, as fashion-forward as a logo clutch... Dior introduces a brand-new manicure combining a gold base and a khaki topcoat. Layered together, they become one to create an incredible crocodile effect. The ultimate golden jungle touch: unforgettable and oh-so desirable.

    Crocodile Leather Effect Nails Duo 001


     

    Two ‘IT’ polishes by Dior become new style statements and the ultimate accessories: the exquisite elegance and mystery of earthy brown and the unconventionality of khaki green. Two impeccable creations for the same modern interpretation of chic style. A collection of customised shades by Dior, designed to exacerbate tension or, on the contrary, play down contrasts. Irresistibly fatale...
