Friday FOTD Featuring Purples and Mauves from Chantecaille + Lipstick Queen

Above: The full look.
Here is my latest Face of the Day (FOTD) for this fine Friday...this time, focusing on soft mauve and purple tones, expertly provided by Chantecaille (namely, the divine 15 Year Anniversary Palette) and Lipstick Queen Silver Screen Lipstick in Stella (Streetcar Named Desire, anyone?).

Kindly scroll on for more images, a complete product breakdown and the Bottom Line...

  • Lipstick Queen Silver Screen Lipstick in Stella...a gorgeously bold purple (available at Barney's NY and Space NK with a touch of Gucci Cipria (reviewed HERE) at the center of the mouth to temper the immense depth of Stella (full review with swatches soon!).
Above:  I swept the dark brown shade across my lid, blended the taupe up towards my brow bone and finished with the creamy highlighter shade at the base of my brows for a soft, gradient look.

Bottom Line: I hope you enjoyed this FOTD!  I, for one, am looking forward to a few days of travel and (hopefully) a bit of relaxation.  I will be addressing all of your wonderful comments this weekend and have so many posts in the works about which I am thrilled...foundation (three formulas, to be specific!), lip color, skincare and a video, coming your way!

xx,

    1. Hi Rachel,

      Don't be depressed! It is actually quite purple, I just tempered it with a bit of pale nude lipstick to make it more work appropriate ; ) Will have swatches up of all the lipstick in this formula soon!

  3. Hi dear BP,
    I'm curious on the details of how you mixed the 3 foundations ! :D
    (Hope that wont make me wanna get the 3 too, lol, my wallet wont be happy XD)
    As you can see on the pictures links at the end of your review, the packaging of the Kanebo Sensai CP cream foundation had changed. I hope you can try it. Maybe you can ask Kanebo to send you the samples. I feel it even better than the beloved old version.
    Xoxo,
    Michelle

    1. Hi Michelle!

      Thanks for your question, I use approximately equal parts of all three and it is wonderful! I am so excited that the KS foundation can be purchased and the thought of it being even better is thrilling!! Can't wait to order it.
