Review - California Naturel Balancing Complex & Nourishing Cream

2014 has been wonderful so far in terms of experiencing new skincare items. I have tried some great drugstore classics as well as higher-ends, not to mention the all natural products from California Naturel which has been a delightful eye-opener for me.
I must say that I have nothing but love for this up-and-coming natural organic brand. Everything I have tried from California Naturel is wonderful, but these two facial moisturizers that I am going to review today get my special love.
(I have reviewed some of their offering in my previous post.)

Review, Swatch - Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Moisture Foundation 112

I initially fell in love with this foundation but ended up sending it to my blogsale pile.
No real issue here. In fact, I feel torn about it and might retrieve it back because I still think this is an excellent foundation.
I took some swatch pictures when I first opened it, so I decided to review on it after all. It does not seem there are many swatches of Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Moisture Foundation in shade 112, which is "a natural light ochre for yellow undertones".
Hopefully this post will help you out a little if you are planning an online purchase.

Swatch, FOTD - Chanel Les 4 Ombres 226 Tissé Rivoli

When the new Chanel Les 4 Ombres Multi Effect Eyeshadow Palettes were introduced, I was sure I wanted Tissé Gabrielle which is a smoky quad with variations of grey, but ended up buying Tissé Rivoli instead. I might still get Gabrielle, but Tissé Rivoli seems much more versatile and suits better for my current color preference.

Swatch, FOTD - L'Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Wet Shine Stain Stubborn Plum

My adorations for this drugstore hybrid lippies are well documented here on this blog.
I won't be reviewing this in details since it's been done so many times. Basically L'Oreal Wet Shine Stain is an affordable and sheerer version of the Yves Saint Laurent Glossy Stain.
I ended up with 7 shades after giving one away and replacing a lost one. I think Stubborn Plum is my 6th one. Honestly, I would have bought it sooner if it had a different name. I mean, Stubborn Plum?  ;-/

Review, Swatch - Maybelline Master Kajal Cream Kohl Eyeliner Navy Night

This impulse pickup from downstairs (there is a drugstore) turned out to be a total letdown.
I use hybrid kajal pencils (L'Oreal Voluminous Smoldering Liners) daily to base my eyeshadow colors. These have ideal texture that is not too dry nor too creamy, so I got all three colors from the line - black, brown, and grey. I have wanted something like this in blue color as well, which is why I decided to try Maybelline Master Kajal in Navy Night.
