Clarins Waterproof Eyeshadow Shimmering Cream Colour Review and Swatches

Clarins released four shades of  Waterproof Eyeshadow Shimmering Cream Colour, as a part of their summer 2016 makeup collection, and I have all the shades to share with you. (See other colour products from the collection  here).

Clarins Waterproof Eyeshadow Shimmering Cream Colour Review and Swatches 3

These are truly brilliant.  I’ve worn each shade several times already, and I am ready to share my experience.

While I haven’t tested them in the pool, or the sea (I wish) yet, I can report that they are really long-lasting, as promised. They stay on all day long.  I have tried wearing Clarins Waterproof Eyeshadows with primer, and without, and both results are impressive. I don’t have oily eye lids, so these eye shadows last during the whole working day without creasing or fading, even without the primer.

You can use these both with your fingers or with a brush which is extremely easy. Just make sure you blend the

Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Liners Jackpot Set. Was it Worth Getting it?

I wrote about the Urban Decay Jackpot 24/7 eye liner set a looong time ago, back in September 201o. Since than I knew that I had to get it.

What for and why?

Well, it was only $39 and I though it was a great value for so many colours. And no, I don’t really need this set for my personal use, as most of the days I would just use my brown Lancome or Daniel Sandler  eye pencil.

I have to say that it was so hard to find it. I was misinformed that this set won’t be available in the UK and EU. As it turned out, it WAS available in the EU but when I found that out, the set was almost sold out. I was trying to track it down for ages and, unfortunately, the brand wasn’t very helpful when I was asking several times where I could buy it.

Finally I’ve made up my mind to get it from the US. So  my friend got it for me this May. I got it because I was getting other things, not on its own.

Excuse me for such a long introduction but I just had to share.

Here is how the mini-pencils look like compared with the travel and

Zero, Bourbon and Flipside 24/7 Liners by Urban Decay. Review and Swatches

Today I would like to tell you about one of my favourite eye pencil – 24/7 eye pencils by Urban Decay.

By the way, their Fall 2010 makeup collection is already available 😉

I have quite a few different shades but today I will tell you about my 3 most favourite. As you can see, they all are mini size because I love mini sized better. Although I do have some regular sized 24/7 liners.

The shades that I love are:

Zero – creamy black shade

Flipside -vibrant teal with shimmer

Bourbon -brown with golden glitter

Why Do I Love These Pencils?

  • They are so creamy and it’s very easy to use them.
  • The name 24/7 speaks for itself , they really last forever. One of the best eye liners, I can compare them only with MUFE Aqua Eyes.
  • I love the ingredients: Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E and Cottonseed Oil.
  • There are a lot of shades that you can choose from and  UD often makes
