Happy New Year!
Hi – I’m a fellow Singaporean studying in Sydney, and I was wondering if I saw you at Mecca Cosmetica, David Jones Sydney on Boxing Day. I thought I remembered you from somewhere but couldn’t be sure. Anyways, if you are interested in writing to a fellow makeup addict, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I recently bought the Chantecaille Promenade in Prague palette and I’d be interested to know how others would use the colors – I haven’t found uses for Indigo and Flint which seem too dark to be used as anything except eyeliners, and I don’t usually line my eyes. I think I’m talking too much here, so I shall leave it for now – best of wishes for the new year.

Re: Happy New Year!

Actually, I think it’s Zinc, not Flint I can’t find a use for. Flint is dark grey so I use it dry as an eyebrow filler. OK, here are the colors – I’m terrible with descriptions so this might not do it justice:
Winter Bloom – peachy orange, rather like the Oolong blush of the Stila Oolong Jasmine duo – I use it as a blush and I’m hoping to finish it so I can buy one of the refillable e/s compacts just to see it snap into place.
Zinc – dark brown – haven’t figured out how to use it, but I suppose it could be used to contour the “crease” for a smokey or darker eye look.
Patchouli – light brown – applied to the outer third of the eye on the brow bone, blended to look like a real crease (I don’t have a crease at all).
Indigo – dark blue – haven’t a clue how to use it – possibly wet as an eyeliner.
Crystal – pale shimmery grey – applied above and blended with Alloy on inner two thirds of brow bone to create crease.
Alloy – pale shimmery brown – applied to inner two thirds brow bone.
Shell – pale shimmery peach/champagne color, used all over as a wash.
Flint – dark grey for eyebrow filling.
Overall this gives my eye the contoured look which isn’t too dramatic and good for everyday use. Do you have any of the colors? I’d also be interested to know what you think of the Chanel Waterlights foundation and the YSL semi-loose powder if you’ve ever tried it. Chantecaille FS didn’t impress me for some reason so I’m hunting for another grail. I’m using Armani LSF at the moment. Thanx. Hope I’m not flooding your LJ.

Oooo thanks for that! It sounds awesome. I think Zinc can be used as wet as an eyeliner? I’ve never tried any Chantecaille eyeshadows at all 🙁
Oh about the Waterlights, it’s pretty good if you have normal to dry skin. I have dry cheeks and it’s awesome on that, but it’s a bit too emollient for my oilier tzone. I love the Armani LSF though!

Hi Bev, HAPPY NEW YEAR to you too! All the best for 2003. Hope the new year bring you lots of joy, happiness, success, and good health *hugz* I’ve been reading your journal for quite a long time, but I just got an LJ account 4 days ago, so I rarely ever commented on any of your previous entries. Anyhow since I *love* your journal a lot (I come here daily so pls write as often as you can *lol*), I’ve added you into my friends list, hope you don’t mind! 🙂
