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 Lancome Ombre Hypnose Eyeshadows & More [Photos & Swatches]

    Hi hi!

    Recently I received a bag of Lancome products to try out, and it's always exciting to check these out, because among them are the newly formulated single eyeshadows, a couple of brushes, and also the liquid liner.  I have also included two items from their Holiday 2012 collection which I have already blogged about in this entry. (link link link)   I am very very happy with the colors that I am featuring here and can't wait to use them in a Lancome look very soon! 

    More information on these Ombre Hypnose Mono

    3 color intensities to play with, from fresh and luminous shades to deep and glamourous shades to fulfill every color desire!
    Also consists 4 effects of texture for an expert finish. 

    Matte (M): For a soft, velvety finish.
    Pearly (P): To create a luminous silky halo.
    Iridescent (I): With exceptional concentration of pearly particles to give eyes a beautiful glow.
    Sparkling (S): For a dazzling result with pearly particles that act like couture sequins.

    And the new liquid liners, the Liner Plume 

    Features: 

    Creates an easily tailored look from the thinnest to a strong line thanks to a long and soft brush. Extremely long-wearing, lasting more than 6 hours without smudging.

    And swatches

    eyesparkle in 10 Noel is a sparkly loose pigment that is largely pale gold, with bits of pink and gold glitter.  It is quite smooth, and lovely to use to pack some shimmering goodness in your eyelook, or dust on your skin to catch the light when you are out for a party for the night. 

    S207 Fil D'argent - a golden brown with some fine silver bits very smooth, and very intense

    I 202 Erika F - a olive sparkly shade, it is a very 'famous' iconic Lancome shade, and reminds me of Chanel illusion d'ombre in Epatant, or is it the other way round?  

    P204 Perle Ambree - a mid tone pearlised brown, my everyday kind of color.  The texture is creamy and smooth.

    P102 Sable Enchante - a beige tone pearlised shade perfect for all over the eyes.  Again, same creamy smooth texture as P204. 

    Some close ups:

    And lastly these two brushes: 

    I will be able to give an overview on everything in a follow up entry.  Stay tuned for the LOTD! 

    Thanks for looking!

    Fil d'argent looks really intriguing! (And is just awesomely pretty in the pan, too!)
