Benefit Cosmetics Gilded Review and Swatches

Do you remember the fantastic Legally Bronze set by Benefit which was available at American Sephora for $35 (the value is $105)! So you save $70, amazing, right?! So guess what?! It’s back!!!

Last time when it was available a lovely friend from America was kind enough to get it for me. I’ve already reviewed Hoola Bronzer. I also plan to write a post about my fave liquid highlighters and High Beam is one of them. As for mascara, I’ve lost it somehow so there will be no review about it. But today I will tell you about the Gilded eye pencil from the set.

It’s a bronzy gold eye pencil which I personally use all over the lid. I’d even describe this colour as a bronzy melon which is beautiful especially if you have tan!

This is how is looks like

And here is the swatch and my impression

Makeup Inspiration: Dior at Paris Fashion Week

Dior always has amazing makeup at their shows and I already wrote about Fall 2010. This time lets take a look at S/S 2010 at Paris Fashion Week. I absolutely love this look! Bright  and vibrant creamy eye shadow with cat eye liner paired with matte lips.  It was created  by the genius Pat McGrath. Besides blue, lime and pink eye shadows there were other shades as well.

I can’t wait to try such look in summer myself  but I will probably use a neutral lip shade!

Don’t be afraid to use bright shades, it’s only makeup after all, and you can always remove it! Besides if that is too bright for you  – try more subtle shades!

Rerember the preview of Lancome’s Holiday 2010 collection? Here are the details about it.

Unfortunately so far I have only US prices.

Lancôme L’Wren Scott Ombré Absolue Palette, $42

L’Wren Scott reinterprets smoky eyes. Her perfect color harmony: Two subtly shimmering medium greys highlight the eyelid, while a hint of silver opens up eyes with a touch of light. A slate shade is then used as a liner to enhance the eye contour. A quad of sleek, long-lasting, radiant eyeshadows, beautifully showcased in a one-off collector’s case signed by the designer.

L’Wren Scott for Lancôme Le Vernis Nail Polish, $14.50

L’Wren Scott’s emblematic grey is captured in Le Gris L’Wren. Originally developed exclusively as the finishing touch for the designer’s Fall-Winter 2010/2011 runway look, this unique it-shade is now available to all aficionados of high-fashion manicures.

  • Le Gris L’wren
  • Le Rouge L’wren

Nails of the Day: Essence Undead Nail Polish

I’ve posted about Essence Eclipse collection a long time ago and today I want to show you the nail polish which I got.

The nail polish I’ve picked is called Undead? and it’s a black with purple (or is it pink) glitter. Although the colour is super beautiful in the bottle I can’t say that it’s the same on your nails. It looks almost black and you can see the glitter only in the sun.

Also I  am not very impressed with the quality of this nail polish. I’ve tried several Essence nail polishes already and they were much better in my opinion. For some reason it started to  come off on the 2nd day which usually never happens when I wear nail polish.

I am wearing 2 coats.It’s a bit streaky because I’ve applied it when it was

3am so  please excuse this mess

By the way, I have to say that I was quite impressed with this collection, not that I am a fan of Twilight, but I think the colours are amazing and I liked several products actually!  Anyway, Essence is a nice brand to try if you are on a budget. It was a LE so I hope you can still find it.

The Best Luxury Organic Candles

I have a lot of candles but they are the from-your-local-supermarket type of candles, non of them are  close to the luxury organic candles. This week I’ve realized that I want to get some nice candles for my bedroom.

This is why I read about some brands myself and also asked some of my twitter friends for their favourites.  So now I want to get something from Jonathan Ward and Neom  Luxury Organics.

But I will tell you about Jonathan Ward London today because I’ve heard a lot of good things about this company  some people  recommended it to me!

I really like the website and the fact that you can choose a candle you want based on different categories: collection, room, scent. There are also 2 size of those candles

  • Large:£30 – 8.5oz (241g), burn time: 45hrs
  • Medium:£20 – 6.5oz (185g), burn time: 30hrs

And probably the best thing! They have International shipping, so you can get them outside the UK or Europe.

I will get one candle to start with but I am not yet sure which one yet so here are 3 I have to choose from.

Dance in Summer Rain

Inspired by the magic of a childhood camping trip in the New Forest, this unique aroma is characterised by watery jasmine and lilies, and crisp green leaves wrapped around soft blond woods.

An uplifting, clean and sparkling fragrance offering renewed energy. The best selling candle.

Ingredients:

  • Green leaves, Jasmine, Pink cyclamen, Water-lily

Pietas Lavender
