Agnès b. Harmony Makeup Pouch

without comments

agnesb_setLike other beauty collections including Sonia Rikyel and Ladurée, French brand Agnès b. only offers its makeup ranges in Asia, and this particular set was exclusive to Singapore Airlines (although I believe it might be discontinued now – sorry!).

The Agnès b. Harmony Makeup Pouch contains a series of products selected by the designer herself, according to the airline, to achieve “an intense and luminous look”. These include  theAgnès B.B. Cream SPF 20 PA++ in 01 Light, B. Glossy Stick Shimmering Lipstick in 2132 Framboise Glossy, the Palette Sublim’ Regard Eye-Enhancing Kit for Eyebrows and Eyelids, a Contour Haute Def Eyeliner Pencil in Black  and a free Agnès B. Beauté Makeup Pouch. The eyeliner is made in Germany, the palette is made in Italy,  the lipstick is made in China and the BB cream is made in France, making for a truly international set!

This is one of the nicest and best put-together makeup sets I have seen in a while – every product is something I would be happy to have bought individually. The palette shades are pigmented, the lipstick is very comfortable and the eyeliner doesn’t budge, and the BB cream is a match (which is rare as I am very light and most Asian BB creams lean towards yellow). Priced at a very reasonable S$87 (about $70), I consider this set a success.

Dior Eye Designer Eye Makeup Palette

with one comment

Dior Eye Designer Eye Makeup PaletteThis little beauty has been in my sights for a while but I haven’t had the chance to purchase it yet, so unfortunately we’ll have to make do with a product shot and no swatches for now.

The Dior Eye Designer Eye Makeup Palette is a travel exclusive that contains three eyeshadows, eyebrow powder, eyeliner and tweezers for a complete eye makeup set, presented in the company’s traditional velveteen pouch. The box also includes a miniature version of Diorshow Extase mascara.

As the shades are neutral this sounds like the perfect work trip palette if your out for a couple of days. It retails on board Singapore Airlines flights for S$74 (about $60), which is pricey but not out of this world for Dior. I’ll report back when I get my hands on it!
