super excited about this...Back story is I have wanted Mat Lumiere for the longest time but I can't get the right shade (14 ivory) in this country. My boyfriend went to America last week so I asked him to pick it up for me. And in a cheeky mood I kinda asked for 75 Dragon Rouge Allure Laque and 85 Mirifique Illusion d'ombre aswell... I really am so excited and just can't hide it... feast your eyes guys xx

First impressions: Illusion d'ombre in 85 Mirifique is very very sparkly cream eyeshadow and due to the amount of sparkle can look like a gunmetal colour. It is also very pigmented. Did I mention it's sparkly. I find sparkle all over my face when I use this. It has a really gorgeous buttery consistency and applies very smoothly however there can be cake-age if you put on too much. I really want a navy blue one just like this!

First impressions: Mat Lumiere 14 Ivory is gorgeous on the skin, Truely lovely. I use 2 pumps and then blend with my fingers. It really is such a dream to apply and in my opinion kicks Estee Lauders Double Wear's butt. Where other foundations cake, gloop, streak or stick to dry spots this does not and makes your skin look immaculate. Negatives?, which unfortunately there are, the smell of this makes me nauseous but I did not notice when applying and you can't smell it when its on so this is no big unless you spend your time sniffing the pump. Also it's very much on the yellow toned side. As I'm cool toned anyway this isn't bad for me, but for warmer toned skins out there be warned. I'd say 14 ivory is best for NC20 skin, perhaps a tad darker.

First Impressions: Rouge Allure Laque in 75 Dragon. Wow the perfect red. It's a dark blue toned red which I can't describe as anything else other than the colour of blood. Definitely a staple for those of you who want to rock the 40's trend this fall. The tube is uber chic black glass yet is much smaller and dumpier than I thought.it would be. Alot of product comes out on this one and the doe foot applicator isn't very precise. Therefore I reccomend you swipe colour on your bottom lip and blend out with a brush. The result is uber glamorous glossy lips. Personally I get too paranoid of bleeding or an  incident resulting in red being swiped across my cheek so I need to dab my lips with tissue. This results in a beautiful red stain. Gorgeous but I reccomend a lipstick to do the job. It would be so much easier.
