Two months of 2017 are down, wow, how did it happen? But this means that it is time for monthly favourites.
To be honest, I loved/used pretty much the same products as in January, and there are very few additions.
Also, this month most of the the products I have been loving are very
cheap affordable. Let’s take a look.
I have started using my lip liners more often – especially the ArtDeco Soft Lip Liner Waterproof in 80 (review and swatches) and Rimmel Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Lipner in East End Snob (review and swatches). I actually want to get the Rimmel one in red now, too. I don’t really overdraw my lips like there is no tomorrow, I mainly use them to create the shape I want, and make the lipstick look more defined. But if you want to create fuller lips – this video from Lisa Eldridge is pretty awesome.
The other cheap and cheerful product I loved is the Makeup Revolution Natural Nudes Eyeshadow Redemption Palette Iconic 3 (you can get it from Amazon UK or Amazon) which, according to all the reviews is a dupe for Urban Decay’s Naked 3. I have so many Urban Decay palettes which I have been buying over the years, but for some reason I barely ever use them, however I have been reaching for this Revolution one all the time. There are several shades I really love, and the quality is very decent, in my opinion. This palette was a present from a friend.
It’s not a secret that my favourite affordable skincare brand is
A limited edition Surprise Eye Shadow Palette ‘Phanes’ for only €50 (value more than €100) or receive it as a gift with orders* of €150 or more.
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,
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 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.
First 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.
There 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
