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
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,
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:
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
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!
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?!
