I had a play with my new YSL Ombre Solo eyeshadows and new products in general and this is a quick FOTD (shot in the car, as usual!). I used Chanel Mat Lumiere Foundation, Cashmere Brown eyeshadow, Midnight Black to line and some fawn to blend in around the crease. I used a nude white shade from Etude House under the brows to highlight and I used YSL Blush Variation 19 in Venetian Rose (a […]
I purchased Kanebo’s KATE new Gradical Eyeshadow Palettes recently. KATE is a pretty good brand in terms of quality although the last few eyeshadow palette offerings were a bit shimmer, a bit sheer. The Gradical palette has 4 gradual shades and a white eye base which is quite common in Japanese eyeshadows palettes. They are thoughtful like that. I have so many of these little palettes I went for shades I don’t normally choose – […]
I didn’t buy the Lavshuca Dual Eyes palettes when they first came out but bought a few recently in the Adambeauty.com sale – I am SO glad I did. Despite looking quite dull they are highly wearable and gorgeous eyeshadows! This one is the Pink Variation – a frosty pink and a chocolate brown duo. I like these in the week because it requires less thought for work: On the eye: So its not a […]
When I went away to London this weekend, I took my glorious Shu Uemura Palette with me. Its truly one of the best palettes I own (and I put a lot of them together myself)…. I am considering buying another large palette – its fab, sturdy yet compact, for all my Shu Uemura blushers. Anyway here is the eye I did for IMATS. My lashes are the result of an extension (review coming up this […]
Boots No. 17 had a sparkly mini limited edition range called Tinsel & Tiaras for the party season. I picked up one eyeliner, a sparkly black to try out: I love liquid eyeliners, but I find cheaper ones take far too long to dry and are too thick. I also need a really bold, strong pigment and it should really glide. On first glance, this liner is as thick as one would expect, even though […]
Pink & Black on the eyes – quite wearable really and great with dark hair: What palette did I use?
I’m a bit late with this one, but I got my paws on the beautiful Dior Night Butterfly Quint, that is part of the fall Jazz Club collection. Dior Quints > Chanel Quads. If you know what I mean. I love purples and they suit me but for some reason I am always drawn to greens instead. This quint comes with a mixture of black, purples and lilacs in the usual pretty palette: See swatches […]
I still hate this palette with a passion, but I had to make it work. So here’s a quick EOTD: Breakdown: 1 – Highlight under brow bone 2 – Brown in crease 3 – Bright blue on lid 4 – Purple under the eye 5 – Dark blue under the lashes I guess the palette is ok, but I still concede that I NEED SHIMMER!
