No More Falling Through the Cracks: Guerlain Lingerie de Peau BB Beauty Booster in BB3 Natural

Guerlain Lingerie de Peau BB Beauty Booster review

This is how things usually go gown for fair-medium girls when there are two shades in a BB cream line-up: the lighter shade is way too light, and the darker way too dark. I pretty much just summed up the story between me and Guerlain Lingerie de Peau BB Beauty Booster when it came out last year. The nice lady in the store pumped some out in 02 Medium (it has been re-numbered as BB4) for me to try, because Light (01. Re-numbered as BB2) was visibly too light. Too bad, because Meidum turned out to be unwearably dark. If you have a similar skin tone (say NC 25-30) and feel like Goldilocks with the first two bowls of porridge, this time the temperature is just right: Guerlain has just added *BB3 Natural to the line!

Dior Bar Duo & a Warm-Toned Girl’s Guide to Wearing Grey

Dior Bar Duo FOTD

The color grey and I, we aren’t friends. I have found even blues that I can wear with relative ease, but grey remains a mystery to me. With my strong yellow/olive undertone, grey usually ends up making my complexion extremely ashy. When I first saw *Dior Bar 5 Couleurs, my heart sank a little. However, I ended up making it work (or so I’d like to believe)! Besides a review of the quint and *Dior Bar Dior Vernis today, I will be sharing some tips to help warm-toned girls pull grey off!

#PerfumeMonday: Atelier Cologne Santal Carmin & Blanche Immortelle

Atelier Cologne Collection Métal Santal Carmin & Blanche Immortelle

Atelier Cologne is a brand that I got to discovered a little while back. While I am personally not the biggest fan of citrus (I don’t dislike it. I just don’t get as excited about it), their Collection Matières Absolues and Collection Métal are nothing short of fascinating. Recently, the brand added two new creations to Collection Métal, namely *Santal Carmin and *Blanche Immortelle. If you are like me, namely when you like an ingredient, you want it to stand out in a scent, none of these would disappoint you!
