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

Rouge Bunny Rouge Eye Shadow Palette Raw Garden in Antigo Review and Swatches. Rave

It’s not a secret that I am a huge fan of Rouge Bunny Rouge eye shadows, and I was very excited about their newest palette which I have posted on my Instagram 6 weeks ago already.

The brand’s Eye Shadow Palette Raw Garden in Antigo is probably my favourite release, and here is why.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Eye Shadow Palette Raw Garden in Antigo Review and SwatchesI really love the sleek and chic black compact,  with a good mirror, and a very well edited selection of shades with a wavy pattern.  You  just can tell that it is a luxury product. Moreover, it comes  in a beautiful cardboard packaging with a signature RBR design.

You get four beautiful and really versatile shades ( descriptions are from the brand):

  •  A very light, yellow-tinged neutral vanilla cream beige; the ideal base to even out your skin tone and add highlights
  • A medium, cool taupe with a hint of pink
  • A medium, true “café latte” brown taupe
  • A dark, rich, powdery chocolate brown

And it is pretty much everything you need: a

Rouge Bunny Rouge Spring 2016 Makeup Collection Exclusive Preview

I have already posted  a preview of the Rouge Bunny Rouge new foundation on Facebook but I actually have samples of all shades now. And something else which looks absolutely incredible. It is the most exciting launch from the brand in the last several years, in my opinion.  And it will definitely be a best-seller.

And I am talking about the Eye Shadow Palette in 086 Antigo which is a gorgeous palette with four nude wearable shades.  The compact, pattern, shades – it is all perfection. I will definitely post all the details and swatches soon.

As for the foundation which is called Skin Soul Drops – it is available in three shades. It comes in a chic small (15 ml) glass bottle with a dropper. I have already used it several times and the first impression is that it gives a matte finish and a good coverage (which can be built up or sheered down, depending on your preference).

theBalm Nude Dude Eye Shadows Palette for Fall 2014

When I first heard that theBalm were about to launch a palette called Nude Dude, I actually thought it was a joke.  I highly recommend that you do not google “nude dude”,  as I did, trust me on this one. Now, I am hoping that I won’t get wrong kind of audience with such title…

But actually it is true!
