Foundation Edit

Apr 28, 2018


liquid foundation for fair light skin

For a beauty enthusiast, I think I have a modest foundation collection. Reviewing them individually seemed a lot more complicated though that I've decided to do a roundup post with swatches. You will probably see more of these of different subjects from now on, as I am taking a realistic approach towards blogging (rather than pledging to write all about them then failing).

Tom Ford Camera Obscura

Apr 23, 2018



I have had Tom Ford Private Shadow Camera Obscura for a while now but I still am not sure if I love it or hate it. This tiny thing is about $40 after tax so I was ready to be blown away by its gorgeousness. I can't say I was, to be completely honest with you.

Swatch Set | Jouer Lips

Apr 21, 2018


Jouer lip swatches

I recently bought a mirrorless camera and so far it doesn't seem that I made a smart investment. I have been shooting with a tiny point & shoot under a softbox for years now. Not that I had a major issue with the picture quality but I wanted to offer better ones here on Lenallure. Frustratingly enough, my new camera is capable of capturing all my wrinkles and freckles yet it cannot (no, I cannot) give me clear swatch photos. A wise friend has advised me that I just need to get familiarized with the camera and its settings, so I was practicing a bit this afternoon. These five Jouer lippies were the objects. 

NARS Indes Galantes

NARS Indes Galantes review swatch

Indes Galantes is another stunning duo from the NARS Sarah Moon collection (late 2016). I love the other duo in the collection, Quai des Brumes so much and use it frequently (reviewed here). I knew that Indes Galantes wouldn't be as easy to pull off but had to get it because the color combination looked so interesting.

NOTD | Essie Gel Couture Nail Polish Inside Scoop

Essie Inside Scoop swatch

We've enjoyed a very nice spring weather for the past few days but the cold wintry mix seems to be back. Hope everyone is staying well in this finicky weather!

Despite the endless winter, light pink and whites are all I want on my nails these days. This week I am wearing a sheer pink one from the Essie Gel Couture range, Inside Scoop


Look | Rouge Bunny Rouge Venetian Red - Spring/Summer 2018

Apr 8, 2018


Rouge Bunny Rouge Venetian Red look

This season, Rouge Bunny Rouge suggests a bold yet elegant makeup look, Venetian Red. I was immediately drawn to this edgy poetic look and definitely wanted the Victorian hat the model was wearing. At the same time, I didn't know how it would translate in real life because the look is about warm bronzed skin and red eye makeup. To my surprise, this is actually quite a soft and wearable look. Easy to create, too. 

Look Book 3 | Simple & Bold

Apr 2, 2018
