LOTD: Clé de Peau Beauté Eye Quad 306

Hi hi!!  Recently I was sent several Cle de Peau items from their lastest release of eye quads & lippies.  They just launched a range of new eye quads, newly formulated and there are a total of 8 color combinations for you to pick.  I got mine in 306.. which is an unexpected love for me...as I don't normally lean towards a silver/ black combo.. but the rosy taupe shade in this quad pulls everything together. 
For example, I can use the silver on top of the taupe to add some dimension, and I use the black to add more depth. 

I have swatched all 8 new quads in this earlier entry here - click click.  

The new formulated eyeshadows are buttery smooth and the shimmer are so refined and elegant.  The shades in each palette layer very well together, and they are very easy to apply.  Overall this is a great improvement from the previous eyeshadow quads that they have.  I also like that each shade in each palette is the same size (the older ones have different sized pans).  

I also have a lipstick here from their extra rich range - the shade is 111, a pinky beige.  It goes on more intense if you use a lipbrush, as I learned from my makeover experience with cle de peau.  If you apply it straight from the bullet, you get a softer color payoff. 
I have been using this quite often as it is so natural and moisturising.  So you can see that I am using it almost like a lipbalm. 

There is also a new mascara, but I will not be featuring that in this entry. 

Swatches - 

On the eyes

<strong>Color placement: 

</strong>I applied the pale pink as highlight shade, the taupe shade as lid color, the silver just on the middle of the lid for extra pop, and the black to deepen the color on the outer corner. 
Everything sort of blends together to create this really pretty almost purpley soft look.  I find myself reaching for this quad quite often when I am doing my eyes.  There's hardly any fallout, and the quality is impressive.

I snapped a pic of all products used, and look at the quad now.. which shows you how much I have  been using the quad.  Haha. 

In this look, I also used the black shade to softly line my lower eyelids.  Overall, I love this look.  Kinda sweet, and kinda strong at the same time.

Hope you enjoy this entry, and thanks for reading! Loving this long weekend!

LOTD: New MUFE Eyeshadows!

Hi hi

Recently I went with a few of my girlfriends to check out the new MUFE eyeshadows at the MUFE Pro Store at Armenian Street (wooots, thanks to Sarah!) There was a mind boggling range of 210 shades in total, in every color you can imagine and also in a variety of finishes.  I did not swatch every single shade, but I played with a bunch which I felt were interesting.  It was tempting to go for 'unique' colours, but but but... I did want to get stuff that I would use anytime I want to use eyeshadows.  These days, I am into rosy browns... and so I went for a trio that would work very well together and also on their own.  

I also purchased a couple of MUFE pro palettes - I am planning to do a major depotting project later this year, so the palettes will come in handy then.  
So this trio with the casing is enough for now. 

The eyeshadows are $18 or $26 each.. I can't recall.  But regardless, I don't recall them being super pricey either way. 

Here are the swatches of the three shadows I got:

And I quickly put together a LOTD for this entry: I love everything because they are so soft and so pigmented.  I like to use a fluffy brush for the eyeshadows, as they pack on color and do some soft blending at the same time.  

I have been loving this MAC Fluidline Eye Pencil and Lancome eyeshadow primer.  Highly recommend both!  But I am not sure if the MAC eye pencil is permanent or LE... MIGHT be LE.. don't quote me on that! 

and more swatches here: 

A close up of the eye look - 
I am using a pair of MAC lashes here, I have them for years.. but found them too straight...until I use my Shu Uemura S Curler to curl the lashes. 
So now.. I think I can wear them more often finally!  They are number 35 in case you are wondering.

On the rest of the face, I am wearing mostly DIOR... and that entry will be posted soon  --- CLICK here to read my review of the Dior Star foundation! 

Hope you find this entry helpful and have a great weekend ahead.  
Btw the MUFE eyeshadows are now available at Sephora too (180 shades) and the full range available at their Pro Store. 

Thanks for reading!

LOTD: MAC x Prabal Gurung Collection

Hi hi!!

Today I have an exciting collection to show you - I will be previewing a few pieces from the upcoming MAC Prabal Gurung collection. 

This will be available sometime in DECEMBER 2014 globally.   This is part of MAC's holiday collection - with very luxe and quite heavy packaging, so expect prices to be higher than the usual MAC collection products. 

<em>The modern glamour and immaculate style of fashion designer Prabal Gurung comes to M•A•C in a collaboration featuring ultra-luxurious, custom gold packaging. 

More collection information extract from Vogue UK

The 14-piece collection, two years in the making, was inspired by memories of the designer's mother's beauty compacts, as well as taking style cues from Sylvie Fleury, Damien Hirst and Nick Knight.

Gurung's memories of his mother's own vanity table have clearly informed the aesthetics, with the packaging moving away from MAC's classic curved black towards squared-off, golden compacts and chunky lipstick applicators. Juliana Schurig fronts the campaign, photographed by Daniel Jackson and with make-up by Val Garland and the products themselves are warm-toned and rich in hue - a bronzer powder, a cream colour base, a buffing brush, three eyeshadow duos, three lipsticks, three glosses, a kohl pencil and a liquid liner. And all in time for Christmas.

</em><strong>More product pics: 

The packaging is just drop dead stunning, it's all gold, all bling, and very opulent  </strong>(except for the lipstick, which feels a tad more plasticky compared to the eyeshadow and bronzer compacts).  This is definitely a collection worth every collector's stash. 

An eyeshadow duo - name of the product will be updated soon - it contains a pale champagne shade and a mid-brown shade.  Both complimentary and very very wearable. 

A true red lippy - this has a satin matte finish.  Very creamy and intense.  I LOVE IT> 

Overall swatches: 

</strong>I used everything except for the eyeliner in this look - fyi it's the famous or rather infamous MAC liner in Feline - you either hate it or love it.  I have this in my collection but I find it to be a smudgy mess on me.  So I used my own black liner instead.  

The eyeshadow duo is very wearable - it could have been more pigmented or softer,  but other than that, it is a easy wearable duo.

The lipstick is really pretty.  If you love reds, you would love this. 

The bronzer is another top pick - so finely milled, and gives me enough warmth.

So my two top picks from everything featured would be the bronzer and the red lipstick. 

more pics:

The rest of the pictures in this entry are taken with my brand new iphone6 - so amazingly clear... LOVEEEE it!!

I wore this look to the F1 last Sunday.  Lots of people watching, boozing and general soaking of the party vibe with John Legend and J.Lo!!!  Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Two Beautiful Ellis Faas Hot Lips!

These hot lips have a very unique texture - they are like liquid lipsticks - almost like a creamy paint.  Very very intense and packed with pigment.  You just need a tiny bit for each use.  The colors are vibrant, and I found it hard to pick just 2 shades while I was shopping for them on Net-a-porter (free shipping, yay!!).  I have been wearing these lippies, and I found them to be very long lasting - they stain, which is no wonder, as they are so pigmented and long lasting.  But the stain does not bother me, cos its' not like they are patchy or anything. 

I am so glad that my friend Mabel, raved about these Hot Lips, and after some consideration (and I reallly did!  cos do I need another hot pink or hot red lip color?  Hahaha) --- so anyway, after some thinking, I decided to take the plunge on Monday and try to spend more time doing my base face. hahaha.

And can we just talk about the packaging?  They are sleek like a long bullet - made to fit into the Ellis Faas canister - and certainly a conversation starter if your friends see you whipping this out and applying this on your lips. 

The colors in this range are all quite vibrant - but I went for classic red and classic hot pink.   I find these Hot Lips to be very long lasting, and the sponge applicator which dispenses the product actually works well.  The sponger is soft and provides definite/ precie lip lines during application.  

Here are some clse ups of the lippies -

Initially you have to twist the other hand of the pen - and I turned like 50 times before any product gets pushed to the tip. 

you can blot and apply a second layer if you want something really dramatic and long lasting.
you can also blot and achieve a more matte finish though I think that the Hot Lips settle into a semi matte finish anyway. 
Love how the sponge tip applicator is able to draw fine lines so precisely. 

And some overall look:

Shiseido A/W 2014: Luminizing Satin Eye Color Trio OR316 Floracouture

Hi hi!!

Just want to share with you a palette which I have been enjoying lately.  It is from the new Shiseido A/W2014 collection - along with two other trios, 5 new shades of the lacquer rouge.  I will feature the lip products in a later entry.  Just want to share with you this trio which I have been really using.  (in case you are wodering why these eyeshadows look like they are popping out of their pans - that's because I was a klutz and dropped the whole box on the floor before I took pictures... fortunately nothing shattered, but the poor eyeshadows look shaken definitely!) 

So anyway I always think that a plummy shade like this would quite hard to pull off especially on my eyes, but I found an unlikely partner to the plum shade in the middle orange.  I don't have many orange shades, but this is a soft metallic orange that blends into a warm crease definition shade.  It tones down and warms the plum shade and makes it look richer somehow.  Very very autumnal.  

swatches here - very smooth and intense. 

I shall share with you two looks I have done with this trio. 

The first one is a tad more dramatic which I wore to an event - 

applied with Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color in OR313

I also applied the plum shade on my lower eye lids.
The overall look is more smokey and sparkly due to the shimmering base.  

and a more wearable rendition using mainly the same color placement. 
the plum shade on my lids and using the orange to softly blend and add some definition.

pardon my slightly sunburnt face from my recent staycation - was attempting to get some sun and color. 

I really like the combination of orange and plummy purple in this trio.  I haven't used the pink shade yet, but I will be using this palette again when I feature other products from this Shiseido A/W 2014 collection. 

Nude lippy shown here is NARS Audacious Lipstick in  Barbara. 

</p> <p>
Overall, the OR316 Floracouture eye trio is my top pick from the Shiseido A/W 2014 collection.  It packs the right colors for this season and surprisingly easy to work with as the eyeshadows are so finely milled and there was no fallout at all.  I do recommend you using a colored base if you want a really super intense look though.  But on its own, building up to an intense color payoff is quite easily done. </p> <p>Hope you enjoyed this quick review and stay tuned for more coverage on the Shiseido A/W 2014 collection!

Three Beautiful Laneige Lipsticks!

Hi hi!!

Recently I was given a whole bunch of Laneige products to try out, and this entry will feature 3 beautiful lipsticks which I totally love, in terms of the color, the formula and just the overall quality. 

I am no stranger to the Laneige Serum Intense lipsticks - which are super hydrating and have really pretty colors - pretty stoked to have the famed Neon Orange in my collection - it wears true to color on my lips, but if you have very pigmented lips, it might show up a tad darker.  It is super creamy and easy to apply.  I prefer to slap it on my lips straight from the tube - and if you want a longer lasting wear, you can line and fill in your lips with a matching color lip pencil. 

Next are a couple of the Cushion Lip Tints - in two awesome shades - the Laneige team knows my style for sure.  This is one of the most innovative lip products I have ever tried, the lipstick itself is quite creamy, and a very intense creamy matte texture.  I love the Red Orange which is really a true red shade that's so chic and I really enjoy wearing it.  The Joy Pink is a vibrant shade of fuschia, very hot pink.  Both last quite well - at least 5 hours, and they fade quite nicely without any drying.  
The cushion lip tints - the name tint is quite misleading, because the lipsticks themselves are pretty full on in terms of payoff... but they come with a cushion tip which allows you to 'fade' and smudge the lippy so you can achieve that ombre effect which Korean stars are so well-known for.  I like to use the smudge to just blur out the edges of the lip line which makes a bright lip look more effortless and chic (in my opinion anyway because I prefer a blurry, not feathery, outer lip line).

Swatches on my hand - 

just to show you how I smudge the lippies 

Swatches on my lips - 

and the Cushion Lip Tints overall - 

I have a Laneige base routine feature coming up soon, and this is the end result - stay tuned! 

I love these Laneige lippies - the Cushion Lip Tints retail for only $22 and the Serum Intense Lipsticks $34 - both really affordable prices for quality products - plus...can you say no to these awesome shades?  I cannot.  Hopelessly sucked into wearing these colors all the time. 

Hope this overview has been helpful, and thanks for looking!

Four Beautiful MAC Matte Lipsticks

Hi hi!!

I have been on a MAC Matte Lipsticks kick lately...sort of rediscovering them.. after straying all over the place with a lot of NARS, YSL, some Chanel and Dior...well, everything else really.  Haha.  So the other day, I was clearing and de-cluttering some of my old makeup, and I kept aside enough MAC empties for me to exchange for 4 MAC lippies.  

I immediately zoom in on the bright shades - refer to my previous MAC exchange here - that I got Lady Danger and that was the start of my discovery into some of these awesome creamy matte lippies.  
I had a few on my mind - such as Candy Yum Yum, and some of the retro-matte shades - which are even 'matte-r'.  
Then a couple of days ago, I purchased Kinda Sexy - it is one of those famous MAC nude lipsticks that many people talk about but I have never gone to check it out in real life. 

These matte lippies are very very long lasting, and the bright shades tend to stain the lips a bit, which doesn't really bother me, since I will take of all makeup at the end of the night.  The color payoff of all these are just really impressive. 

So here we have 

1. Flat Out Fabulous - a deep pinky purple - along the same lines as my Shu PK376, NARS Funny Face - that rich intense not quite pink not quite purple, yet so brightening and flattering on me.  I love these deep rich shades.  And it is so matte - just really chic in my opinion.

2. Candy Yum Yum - think along the lines of NARS Schiapp, Chanel Diva (which I bought but have yet to use!), and I recently got Kelly Yum Yum too.  A very bright intense cool toned pink. 

3. Relentlessly Red - a neon shade, that leans between Red, Coral, Pink all at the same time.  It is like a amped up version of Chanel Genial (if you remember this brillian shade or Rouge Allure)  I love this.  A bit drying and certainly not everyone's cup of tea, but this is very long lasting, and I love it on me.  Sometimes I apply a little balm after applying this shade just to add a bit of 'glide' to the formula, not so much as to add shine. 

4. Kinda Sexy - a warm nude that's super flattering.  Not too nude. I love this. And it is a creamy matte like Lady Danger.  

Swatches on my hand - 

And on my lips - 

Matte lipsticks tend to settle in your mouth lines... but I don't mind.  I kind of like the lines of my lips.  They look quite cool.  Haha. 

And here's how two of the shades look on me overall - Flat Out Fabulous and Kinda Sexy. 

Also played with some other nude lipsticks when I was at the MAC counter the other day so I snapped a pictures of the swatches:

I am loving these lippies lately!  

Which are your recent fave MAC lippies?  Please share! 

Hope you like this entry, and thanks for looking!

LOTD: NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow in Dione

This entry features one of the new NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow - in the shade Dione - which is described on the NARS website as a champagne beige - but I personally think it is a rather taupey shimmering shade.  I have been wearing this very often just on its own... it is very metallic, quite pigmented.  And when blended out, the base color of the shadow shows through.  I am liking all these new products that NARS is launching lately, super intense, very versatile... and I really can't wait for the Audacious lipsticks to be out in September! 


Mesmerizing new Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow features a luxuriously smooth transformative texture. Twelve ready-to-wear and rebelliously romantic sophisticated shades to express a riveting range of eye drama. Go both ways.
Total of 12 shades.  --- Check out Temptalia's overview of all the shades here.<strong>

How to Use: </strong>

  • Apply using Wet/ Dry Eyeshadow Brush #49 for a sheer soft touch of sensual color
  • May be applied wet with the Wet/ Dry Eyeshadow Brush #49 for mind-blowing impact with dramatic luminous matte and high shine finishes

I am lazy when it comes to applying eyeshadow, and I just use a smudge-brush to apply this product - I am using a Lancome No 16 blending tip brush.  It is very dense and yet is fluffy enough for me to do some basic blending. 
I finished the look with a eyeliner flick (used NARS Eyeliner Stylo in Capates) since I am applying falsies.  On normal days, I skipped the liner and lashes. 

Some close ups and an overall Look: 

Overall, this is a good range of eyeshadows, all very metallic and I saw some duo-chrome shades in this range too...and most of the shades are pretty unique - check out Desdemona and <a href="http://www.temptalia.com/product/nars-cosmetics-dual-intensity-eyeshadow/phoebe" target="_blank">Pheobe. 

F</a>or what else I am wearing in this look, click on this entry here

That's all, and thanks for reading!  (ps, 3rd entry in a day, that's unheard of recently!  Haha~)

Three Shades of New Lancôme Blush Subtil

<span>Lancôme has released 3 new shades of Blush Subtil to their range - a rosy pink, a peachy and a beige highlight shade.   The blush subtil cheek colors have buildable intensity, on first swipe, they are very smooth and finely milled.   My personal fave is, Beige Adore, which is a really beautiful pale highlight shade.  I could easily slap it on with this shade, and I don't end up looking like a disco ball.  Yet it adds that radiance and very polished finish to the overall complexion. 

</span><strong>Swatches here: 

</strong>003 Peau de Peche is a crowd pleaser, with its flattering peachy shade and there's some specks of gold shimmer, which isn't that obvious upon application. 
I personally prefer 023 Very Rose - that reminds me of Dior's Rosy Glow but it has the prettiest pink shimmer bits. 

** I realise that both blush shades have that 'matte' base and the shimmer bits are quite separate from the actual base color.  They didn't fall out when I apply them with a brush onto my face.. but you will see that in swatches, the shimmer bits don't really quite pick up on the skin and these pics here doesn't really show - hence they are looking more on the matte/ satin side. 

and you can see the beauty of 01 Beige Adore, it will suit everyone as a cheek highlight shade. 

Here, I am wearing 003 Peau de Peche on my cheeks, and 01 Beige Adore as cheek highlight.  
Everything else in this LOTD will be featured in a later entry, but it is a very <span>Lancôme-centric LOTD. 


If you are in the market for some pretty cheek products, do check out the new Lancôme Blush Subtil!  I think they retail for S$60 each, definitely high-end, but if you pick the right shades and the finish, you won't be disappointed with the overall quality!   I find they last decently for a good 8 hours/ a day's of wear, and the colors apply quite true to how they appear in the pan. 

Hope my overview has been helpful and thank you for reading!

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.
