I’ve bought Milk Makeup Eye Pigment in Hotel Lobby without reading any reviews or doing any research, as I was curious about this product. And, spoiler alert, it is absolutely brilliant.
It is such a beautiful product! The formula is great, it just stays on for hours, all day long without any creasing or fading at all, and that is without any primers. If you do have oily eye lids, you may want to use one, but I personally was pleasantly surprised at the longevity of this eye pigment.
You have enough time to work with the product but once it’s set – it stays on. I’ve tried using a thin layer for just a light-reflecting and brightening effect, and also
I am gonna be honest, it has been a while since I’ve bought makeup just because I wanted to, and not because I ran out of a certain product and needed a replacement. I see information about the new launches every single day, and I have more than enough already, so it’s rare that I get that I-can’t-be-without-this-product kind of feeling. But I was really excited about the Victoria Beckham Beauty line.
I have more details about the range here.
As I’ve already shared over at my Insta, I’ve picked up 2 out of 3 items because the third item (eye shadows palette) was out of stock in the shade I wanted, and I’ve placed my order the day the line came out.
So what about the products?
As you would expect,
Let me introduce you to my [current] favourite eye shadow palette. This was a gift from one of my girlfriends a while ago, and I have been using it ever since.
You get a great selection of shades in this palette from matte nudes to gorgeous and fun metallics. I wore every single shade numerous times, and they all can be toned down or played up. And the quality is exceptional, all shades are pigmented, butter-smooth, silky and easy to blend.
The mattes are never chalky and the glittery shades are refined and exquisite.
Basically, this palette is very inspiring, you just look at it, and want to try different shades and play with it. And I don’t remember when was the last time I could be bothered to apply more than two shades on my eye lids. Not anymore. I love layering mattes with metallics on top especially.
The shades are:
I don’t have that many favourites this month but I really love each and every one a lot.
I am huge fan of Givenchy Noir Couture Mascara, and I really like this one, too. This ball-shaped mascara has been around for a while but I have tried it only this year and only because I’ve bought it by accident (did not return it because the lady at Givenchy told me it is her favourite). And I am happy I’ve kept it, as it is great. It takes time to get used to this shape but once you do – you can get incredible results: think, long and black lashes. I also like the fact that this mascara stays on without smudging all day. The only thing I’d say is that this is not a I-am-in-a-rush product, it does take some time to build up the effect but it is worth it, in my opinion.

I know that it is all about the new Chanel eye shadows now but I still want to share my love for the Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eye Shadows.
I have two shades: 857 Rouge Noir and 83 Illusoire. While it took me forever to get the Rouge Noir, as it was always sold out everywhere back in the days, Illusoire was a present from a friend but I love it a lot, too. And since I have a bronze shade in a Stylo format (147 Caroube), I have all the colours I need/use.
Both colours are incredibly beautiful and complex, you can get a sheer wash of colour with a
