EOS Hand Lotion and Lip Balm Review

I’ve wanted to try EOS products for a long time but for some reason never got around getting anything but this month I have finally purchased their hand lotion which I’ve shared on  my Instagram to carry around with me.

Funnily enough, right after that, one of my best friends (she is not even into beauty) gave me a book she thought I’d love and an EOS lip balm which was a very cool surprise. Now, that I have both, I am ready to share my thoughts.

As for the hand lotion, the one I have is  Berry Blossom but you can also get Cucumber (green) and Fresh Flowers (blue).  The first thing that you notice is how comfortable the shape of the tube is, it fits the hand perfectly, what a great design.  It is also a perfect size to carry around with you in the handbag, as it is only 44 ml.

The formula, it is awesome, too. Although I personally love  heavier textures, this lotion is light and non-greasy  but still moisturizing, I use it several times per day, and it keeps my hands soft and smooth, and  smells great. I will be

Rouge Bunny Rouge Eyes Wide Open Brightening Liner Duo in Glacier Flower Review and Swatches

Since I’ve posted about the highlighters recently, I have realized that I haven’t mentioned  the new shade of one of my favourite Rouge Bunny Rouge products, their Eyes Wide Open Brightening Liner Duo yet, and it was launched several months ago.

I wrote a very detailed review of the original shade here, so this post will be more about comparing the two shades.

In a nutshell, this is a brilliant brightening and highlighting multi-tasking pencil with a creamy and smooth texture, it can be used both on the eyes, and face, I also tried mixing it with lip products.

The new shade is called GLACIER FLOWER and the

theBalm Meet Matt(e) Trimony Matte Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches

In my April beauty favourites I promised to swatch theBalm’s Meet Matt(e) Trimony Matte Eyeshadow Palette. I actually really like theBalm eye shadows (nude Tude and Shady Lady Palette Vol.2 , and this one was not an exception.

My friend was actually clearing out her collection, and passed this onto me.  While not all shades look good on my complexion, some of them I adore, and use a lot. My personal favourites are: Matt Rossi (cool toned taupe) and Matt Kumar (warm-toned reddish brown).

As it is always with theBalm eye shadows they are very smooth and soft, their mattes are some of the best on the market, they are not at all chalky or dusty, you can see how pigmented they are, too, on the swatches below. Gorgeous, right?

One more thing which I really like is a huge mirror which is brilliant for
