So last Tuesday my boyfriend, a wonderful and thoughtful man, totally caught me by surprised and presented me with flowers and a gift from Chanel. In the bag was the rouge allure gloss that comes in a beautiful solid black case. At first I didn’t know how to open the case because it’s not a twist open cap like most lip glosses. You have to push open the top and the applicator pops out. Ninja style! It’s super chic and I feel really cool when I click it open to apply the gloss… haha maybe it’s just me. The applicator is sculpted on both sides that hugs the lips for a precise application.
The color my boyfriend picked for me was number 17 Supreme, a deep pink. It definitely has a lot of color for a lipgloss however, I feel as though to get a deeper color I have to layer the gloss more than once. I think my BF did a really nice job of picking this color because it’s a color that looks good with all skin tones. Good job honey! Anyway, the line has 10 other alluring colors to pick from.
The texture is a little sticky but it’s pretty standard for a long-wearing lipgloss. Nevertheless, it feels comfortable to wear throughout the day. Also, it’s very smooth and glossy and makes my lips extra kissable…Hahaha! The lipgloss is formulated with Vitamin E, Sappan Wood and Green Tea Butter that hydrates the lips.
Overall, It’s a very luxurious lipgloss that looks and feels really great on my lips. For the price of 34.00USD per gloss it’s obviously a lavishly delightful treat for your lips as well as your makeup bag. For sure it was a wonderful gift for a makeup lover like me. Take notes guys, if you want to impress your girlfriend or someone you admire go take yourself to a the Chanel beauty counter and get her this really awesome beauty ninja lipgloss!

So this is the one of many looks you can create with the Stroke of Midnight Eye Shadow Palette from the MAC Cinderella collection. This look is suitable for day or night. I used all the colors palette to show you how you can best utilize this palette as a whole. Grab your brushes and let’s go!
First, if you want you can prep your eyelids with a primer. I used Missha The Style Good-bye Crease Eye Makeup Primer on my lids. Take a shading brush and swipe Omega, a beige taupe, over the lids and above the crease.
Next, With a medium fluff brush swipe Quarry on the bottom lid up to the crease.
Then, using the same brush and using Satin Taupe, overlay and blend into the lower lid. Then with a small shader brush shade the bottom of your eyes with the same shade.
Now you’re going to use the darkest shade, Stroke of Midnight, and shade the corner of your eye with a point brush. Then with a small angle brush drag the same shade just under the corner of your eye, close to the under lash line to give it more definition and seamlessness with the top lid.
Then, highlight your brow bone up to the arch of your eye with Vapour. We’re almost done! With the small shader brush grab some Phloof and shade the inner corner of your eyes to brighten up the eye area.
Lastly line the top lashes with any black liner and brush on some mascara.
I also finished this look with the Lipglass from the same collection in Happily Ever After.
Hope you achieved the look you desired! Stay tuned for more tutorials in the future~
