Makeup4all Recommends: Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Eye Shadow Palette. Review and Swatches

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:

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.

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

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.

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:

Urban Decay Naked Palette. Yes, Now I Have It, Too

 

Can you guess what I’ve got? Well, I guess you can if you’ve read the name of this post 😉 I wanted to write something like “I’ve got Naked or similar” but I don’t want to attract any perverts.

So yes… I’ve got myself a Naked palette!

Why?!

I do a lot of makeovers in my free time both for weddings, special occasions and just for my friends so I though it would save a lot of space in my kit.  And yes, let me tell you, it’s a great palette to have with you. Plus a lot of girls love it and some are even asking if I have the Naked palette.

See what I mean? And how gorgeous is my model, right?!

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,
