|Formula X For Sephora- Larger Than Life ( $10.50/ 0.40z)
I picked up this Formula X For Sephora color weeks ago but had yet to try it. After a week of a bright red mani I was in the mood for something more subdued, so I turned to Larger Than Life.
This was my first time trying a Formula X For Sephora color and I must say I was quite pleased. The two coats I’m wearing in these pictures applied evenly and smoothly, and drying time was normal. There is a subtle pearlized finish to the color that is noticeable in person but difficult to capture in a photo. It’s a sophisticated nude that I’m happy to add to my polish collection.
Next up we have a new to me lipstick- Chanel Rouge Allure #145-Rayonnante. I’m a sucker for nice packaging, so check out what Chanel did here with that pop up gold top. Just tap and…
voila! Try and tell me that isn’t cute.
|Chanel Rouge Allure #145- Rayonnante( $35/.120z)|
Rayonnante which I think loosely translated means radiant, is a creamy, pinkish plum. Once upon a time I told myself I would stop buying plum and red lipsticks. That time has passed and I realize now that if those colors work for me I should stick with them.
|Chanel Glossimer #182-Tocade ($29.50/.19oz)|
Tocade which from La Internet may mean whim or passing fancy is a deeper berry that is pigmented enough that I can wear it alone(see the pics below). However, I prefer it layered over Rayonnante.
