Mario Badescu - simple, gentle and effective skincare

Mario Badescu had a singular vision: He wanted to introduce to New York City his European-style facials—mastered back in his native Romania based on classic, Old World techniques. To Badescu, beauty and skin care were unequivocally intertwined. He understood the importance of recognizing the uniqueness of skin, and thus came to design a line of handmade products to suit clients’ individual skin types and needs.

OPI Washington DC collection - Madam President

Happy Saturday everyone I hope you are enjoying your weekend. Today I am showing you my pick from the OPI fall 2016 collection - Washington DC. I only picked up Madam President. It is described as "commanding red" but it is such a chameleon that you can describe it as either pink or red. Really depending on the light it appears to be bright pink or bright red.

Chanel Joues contraste 340 Evening beige

Chanel has been making some amazing blushes in the past 2 years and Evening beige is no exception. I randomly saw it pop up on and ordered it right away. Stock photo are always a bit off but the name itself "Evening beige" seemed promising. In the stock photo it seemed more neutral beige/brown while in reality it is medium copper with golden shimmer. It is beautiful anyway. I think this will look the best on medium warm skin tones. Since I am so pale I will have to apply with the light hand. 
Texture is one of the best ones I have tried from Chanel - extremely pigmented and silky. When blended (sheer out) doesn't seem so scary orange as it appears in my first swatch photo (below) where it was swatched heavily although I only once swiped my finger across the blush.
