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:

Liquid Metal in Phenomena by Illamasqua. Review and Swatches

As I promised here is the first review of Illamasqua products. This time it’s liquid metal in Phenomena from the latest collection called Dystopia.


What is written @ the official Illamasqua website about this product:

Prepare to dazzle with this gloriously rich and highly pigmented metallic cream. Use to adorn eyes, face and body, and apply with fingers or a brush. Release your inhibitions and illuminate your alter ego.

£16.00 , 1.5g (0.05 OZ)

Available in:

  1. Solstice, Molten gold
  2. Enrapture, Molten bronze
  3. Phenomena, Molten silver

So what do I think:

I was very excited to try this product but I was a bit afraid because of the cold silver colour. I have warm brown eyes and I usually wear warm colours. But I totally loved how Phenomena looked on eyes! I felt in love with this product from the first sight. The design is amazing and stylish the products is very pigmented and you need a small amount so it will last you for a long time.  Plus I really loved how it smells (and it is very important for me).

My recommendations:


You can put it on with brush or just fingers. I’ve tried both ways and it’s very easy to use it with your fingers, so don’t worry.

Be careful when you put it on  and don’t touch anything if you put it on with your fingers because you may end up with glitter all over your face and clothes.

You can use liquid metal on your eyes, lips or somewhere else. I’ve tried it on my lips (on the balm) and it looked great!

A base is essential when you wear liquid metal because it will crease without a base. You can also put it on  a shadow. I would not recommend to put it all over your lid because it doesn’t look very nice at the end of the day.

My conclusion:

Mary Kay Eye Primer: Review and Swatches

Mary Kay Eye Primer, $ 12

Here’s the perfect primer to help you create eye looks that grab attention. This waterproof formula creates a foundation so your eye colors glide on smoothly and stay perfectly in place longer – without creasing or smudging. It helps extend and intensify eye color.

This primer does exactly what it has to do! Eye shadows stay on for a long time, don’t smudge and the colour looks bright and vibrant! Check out the photo  with the eye shadows with and without primer. I used Artdeco shadows # 247. I already wrote a review about Artdeco eye shadows here.

I already made a post about Integra Inglot eyeshadows.  Today I want to make a post about mono eyeshadows by Inglot and swatch my favourite shade. Inglot shadows are amazing!

There are so many different shades and  you can find a perfect one just for yourself. Here is the swatch of my favourite shade

You are looking for pigmentet eyeshadows that are gonna stay on your eyes during the whole day? Then you should try Inglot. I like a lot of products from this company and I already reviewed their lipstick and highlighter.

But back to the shadows. I have several different shadows by Inglot. But today I will tell you about  Integra (#62). I have to say the that they are just great! There are 3 colors so you won’t need any other shadows to create the look.

I was wearing these shadows on my BFF wedding day. She wanted  me to wear lavender pink dress. And I used  Integra shadows  which stayed on my eyelids  for the whole day and I forgot to put a base before using it. The color did not fade or crease. I also want to say that Inglot has
