Your fragrance story for this Christmas

Do you have a Christmas wishlist showing the presents that you would like to receive for this Christmas? I actually don't because I am a very random shopper but one thing for sure is that I always prefer practical gifts that I can use such as accessories, fragrances, body care products etc etc. I'm sure I am not the only practical lady here so it will definitely more meaningful to have personalised messages in the gifts to make the gift more meaningful.

If you are keen to get fragrances for your loved ones as gifts and yet unsure on what kind of fragrances they would like, you would be glad to know that P&G Prestige’s Quintessential Christmas Gift Guide, with their extensive fragrance range will definitely have something that you can find.

It would be interesting  to add in some fragrance facts in your personalised note as well and I especially think Note 4 below is interesting since it is something that I am not aware of until now.

Have you spotted your fragrance story this Christmas yet? :)

Chanel Joues Contraste in Accent

Once again, sorry for the silence. I have finally step into my new role with a new company and am both excited and scared at the same time. But I told myself, I will survive!!! Stay positive, ganbatte!!! Lol. On a happy note, my motivation to play with more makeup in the morning is back and I hope I am able to give more prompt and better reviews on this blog. Thank you for being so patient with me. :)

Enough of the rumbling and let's get down to business, haha. Today I will be sharing Chanel Joues Contraste in Accent, which is part of 2013 Holiday Collection. Although this collection is already out in Singapore, I was determined to purchase the US formula. Thus with my partners in crime, Jacq and Meryl, we ordered our products from Nordstrom.

Accent is a beautiful mauve pink tone with slight shimmers. A total beauty when I look at the pan. :)

Based on the swatch below, you can see that Accent has beige brown tone as well which I absolutely love, as I prefer blushes that are not too bright. Do not be alarm if you feel the colour is too dark as it look very subtle when you apply and blend it out.

The texture of US formula Joues Contraste is amazingly smooth. I have no issues picking up the pigment by lighting tapping my MAC Blush brush into the pan. Note that this is not the case for the baked version of Joues Contraste.

I would say Accent blush is definitely a winner in this Holiday collection and if possible, go for the US formula, you won't regret! :) Do check out Meryl's thoughts on Accent blush as well, she has done some comparison with other blushes if you are looking for dupes.
