Rouge Bunny Rouge Long-lasting Duo Cream Eye Shadow in Birdwing Beauteous Review and Swatches. Rave

I have shared the photo of two new eye shadow releases from Rouge Bunny Rouge eye shadows on my Instagram about a month ago, and even included that gorgeous cream duo in my monthly favourites.

I have actually already reviewed the other duo eye shadows available here, if you are  interested. But what about this new option?

 Birdwing Beauteous is a duo with a metallic sparkling finish and the shades are described as: champagne gold and silvery blue-black. RBR suggest blending two shades together to end to obtain a rich silver shade.

And, let me tell, you, it is so incredibly gorgeous. Both shades have that fine silver glittery particles that create the multi-dimensional look on the eye lids. I have got so many compliments and questions thanks to these eye shadows. Unfortunately, my photography skills were not enough to capture the effect on the photo. So you have to trust me that it looks way more interesting and beautiful in real life.

As for the formula,

Rouge Bunny Rouge Eye Shadow Palette Raw Garden in Caliche Review and Swatches and 20% OFF

If you  follow me on Instagram, you already saw the new seasonal products from Rouge Bunny Rouge. There is actually also a new shade of Brightening Eye Duo, too (which I forgot to include on the photo but I will be reviewing it).  I have already mentioned Rouge Bunny Rouge Serene Light Skin Perfector in my October favourites, as it is my newest obsession make-up wise, so now it is time for the eye shadows.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Eye Shadow Palette Raw Garden in Caliche. This is the second colour variation in the Raw Garden collection, and here is a review of the first palette called Antigo.

Although I am always very careful with my makeup, I’ve managed to drop my palette on the floor. At least it looks artsy, or does it?

And while Antigo is a  collection of nude shades, Caliche is all about the muted purples and lilacs, here are the official descriptions:

Clarins 4-Colour Eyeshadow Palettes Review and Swatches. Rave

Clarins have been killing it with their eye shadows lately,  and I have been completely in love.

I’ve been wearing their summer cream eye shadows pretty much exculively for months (and also made some of my friends get those), and their new Autumn  palettes are also to-die-for. I’ve already included them in my monthly favourites, and here is why.

clarins-4-colour-eyeshadow-palettes-review-and-swatches-03-brown-and-04-oudFirst of all, I like the packaging which feels more sleek and luxurious compared to the old version, the compacts are also not bulky, and are travel-friendly.

Ecah palette contains four eye shadows. I have 03 Brown and 04 Oud, and here is a close up.

clarins-4-colour-eyeshadow-palettes-review-and-swatches-04-oudThere are four palette in general, and the idea is that each palette is designed to compliment a particular eye colour. Mine are created for brown/hazel eyes. The other two variations are: Nude for blue eyes and Rosewood for the green. Although you can, obviously, choose whichever palette.

As for the ones that I have 03 Brown is great for creating shadows and contour, and also for subtle classic brown smoky eyes. However, it is 04 Oud the star of

YSL Faux Cils Mascara Review. Rave

My name is Marina, and I am mascara snob. Although most make-up artists and beauty writers say how mascara is the product to save on, this is not for me. After all mascara is one of the most important products in my makeup bag, so it has to be perfect. And YSL Faux Cils meets all my requirements.

This lill’ gem does not need an introduction, a cult classic for a reason, it gives you phenomenal lashes, hence the name. You get ridiculously -long-touching-your-eyebrows lashes which are voluminous and ultra-black, too. On me this mascara stays on pretty well, without smudging for the whole working day.

And that is not to mention that it comes in the gorgeous YSL gold packaging. And although I am the biggest fan of black you will ever find, I still think that YSL’s gold feels more luxurious. And, yes, when you pay a lot for

Lipstick Week: Current Top 3 and a Wish List

To finish our Lipstick Week I’ve decided to feature my current top 3 lipsticks and share the top 3 that are on my wish list.

I’ve made myself choose lipsticks in different colour families, so here are: plum, red and pink. I don’t like orange, nude or any other shades that much.

Since I have already reviewed each lipstick, I have just included the links. I also have to mention that Clarins was recently reformulated, and the new version is even better!
