5 Black Eye Shadows by Lancome, NARS and Urban Decay: Swatches and Review

Black eye shadow is a must have for every woman! Today I’ve picked up 5 shades by Lancome, Urban Decay and NARS. I will tell you my opinion(this is not a detailed review just several words) and will show you swatches. To find out more about the shadows and to get your own click on the image.

1)Color Design by Lancome in Statuesque, $17

I have 9 Lancome Color Design shadows and I like them all. I love almost everything that I have by Lancome (and I have a lot) and these shadows are also great. But you will need to use this shade several times to get a real intense colour.

2)Matte Eyeshadow by Urban Decay in Perversion, $17

Great matte shadow, intense and stays on for a long time. I love matte shadows by Urban Decay!

3) Deluxe Eyeshadow by Urban Decay in Zero, $18

It is worth getting this  eye shadow at least because of the design. All shades have different design and the products is amazing.

4) Eyeshadow by Urban Decay in Oil Slick, $17

Urban Decay Book Of Shadows Vol 2. Review and Photos

We all are now waiting (ok, I am)  for the Alice palette from Urban Decay but why don’t we take a look at their Book Of  Shadows Volume II? This palette was $48 in the US and £24 in the UK.  I got my palette only last month but I am VERY happy with it. I love the design, the booklet with different looks (the purple one on the photo), the shadows, 24/7 liners  and primer potion. The best thing about it is that you can create so many looks with just a single palette and it’s the best product to get from Urban Decay if you’ve never tried their products before. Speaking of their products – I really love their Deluxe Eye Shadows and Revolution (red) lipstick and I will write about them soon.

This is how BOS 2 looks like inside: the mirror and the booklet.

So what about the products? You get:
