I LOVE cream eye shadows and I can never have enough! I’ve realized that I never wrote about the Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place ShadowCreme eye shadows which I got a long time ago, although I promised to. So here we go!
First of all I have to say that I really love that EL has a lot of different shades so everyone can pick something according to their taste. So I’ve picked up 2 shades: light green and silvery-grey.
This is how the design looks like:
The shadows I’ve picked are called Precious Jade and Silver Leaf (I am afraid it was a LE). I have to say that both colours are really beautiful. This is how is how they look like in the jar.
I like these shadows as well as I like everything from the Double Wear series from Estee Lauder (review and swatches of the foundation). Although these are not my most favourite cream eye shadows, they are great!
The shades are beautiful and the pigmentation is nice and you get the same shade on your eye lids as the one in the jar. Also you get a lot ofRead More

I am sure that we all love great quality and affordable price! So if you do and you need a good foundation brush you should really check out the No7 Foundation Brush.
I’ve been told so many good things about this brush, besides Lisa Eldridge herself (creative Director of No7) told me that it’s a great one. So I was happy to get mine finally. I got mine at Boots for £12.
It’s a super soft synthetic brush which allows you to get the right amount of foundation. It doesn’t soak all the product as some other brushes may do and it doesn’t leave any brush marks on your face. Moreover, it doesn’tRead More
