I have a soft spot for Helena Rubenstien. I think her cosmetics are gorgeous, classy and are high quality but they have completely pulled out of the UK and is hard to get hold of.
Today I am looking at the Wanted Eyes Duos. I have several of these (here are the ones I could find….ahem)…
I don’t normally buy duos – why? I prefer quads, so I have more colours to play with. But these shadows are beautiful pigmented, well complimented and work really well on the eyes. It makes things easier in the morning anyway…
Here are a selection of the colours I own:
My favourite of the lot is Emerald Fun (since greens are my favourite shades) and this it the most beautiful, funky green complimented with a matte white:
Another green here, Green Glimpse has a darker, more muddly earth green. More of a smoky effect here:
Yep another green set – this is Palerm Green, a holographic (almost) light green with gold particles. The white reminds me of one of the shades in Iceland Duo (by Nars) – it has a blue tone:
Lucky Gold is an orange toned soft gold:
Dark Ebony is a rich black with a gorgeous taupey type brown shadow. Gorgeous and easy to wear:
If you can get your hands on these eyeshadows, then do! eBay sometimes have these shadows for £7-£10 which is great, as they are sold on Strawberry net for around £30.
What do you think of Helena Rubenstein? Tried any of the products?
