Daniel Sandler Polychromatic Eyeshadow in Lava. Review, Swatches and Face Of The Day. Rave

I am in love with Daniel Sandler’s  new makeup collection for AW 2012 called Escape to Hollywood. I think this is my favourite one so far! I love all Daniel’s products, but some of them adore…

Like this Polychromatic Eyeshadow  in  Lava (£10.25).

Here are all the products from the new collection but I want to tell you about Lava  in details today, as, believe it or not, this is the most exciting makeup product of the month for me!

The texture and the pigmentation are fantastic!  Everything you want an eye shadow to be, it ticks all the boxes for me: easy to apply and blend, soft buttery texture and great staying power. However, the most exciting part is the colour!

It is very unique and complex – a  mix of dark chocolate and red, at least this is how I would describe it, satin finish. I have been wearing this eye shadow every single day since I have got it (thanks, Daniel) and have bit a bit obsessed.

Here is a comparison of it and some other eye shadows:

Inglot Bronze Collection Review and Swatches

I am a huge Inglot fan  and I really love a lot of their products.  I have been to their counter last week to see the latest bronze collection in person as I was interested in eye shadows and also wanted to pick up some gel eye liners.

The eye shadows from the collection are: 605 p, 606p, 607p, 608 ds, 609 ds.

Here are the swatches, the first one is 607p.

Of course I had to get the

L’Oreal La Couleur Infallible Eye Shadows in 026 Golden Mahogany. Review and Swatches

Remember my post about L’Oreal Color Infaillible Eye Shadows in All Night Blue?

I liked them so much that I wanted to buy more shades and when I was looking for swatches on-line I came across this post (definitely take a look!) and knew that I had to get 026 Golden Mahogany.

But L’Oreal has a strange system, I mean they have different shades for different countries and sometimes the names of the shades are different, too. Unfortunately,  I couldn’t find Golden Mahogany at my local L’Oreal counters.

I tweeted my disappointment the other day and… I was shocked but lovely Marija (who has a blog) got it for me as a Christmas present. That was such an amazing surprise, thank you Marija, you definitely made my day.

I won’t repeat myself, so if you want to know my thoughts about the quality of these eye shadows take a look here. But I want to tell you about the colour.

Based on the swatch that I saw I was expecting a true red shade but what did I get instead? Let’s take a look at the swatch, shall we?

Urban Decay Deluxe Eye Shadow in Heat. Review and Swatches

The first product that I have bought from Urban Decay was their Deluxe eye  shadow. Two deluxe eye shadows to be precise, black Zero and reddish Heat. Of course, red and black are my favourite colours.

I am actually surprised that I have never ever written about those as they are absolutely lovely. They are expensive compared to UD (but not  at all compared to other eye shadows) palettes but so worth it if you love the colour.

I also love that each eye shadow has individual design and a colourful label on the back. It also has a nice mirror inside.

So here is how Heat looks like in the pan. It’s a

Illamasqua The Theatre Of The Nameless.Review Photos and Swatches

I was  thrilled to receive some samples from the latest Illamasqua’s collection The Theatre Of The Nameless because the brand always thinks carefully of what to put inside and I am  fascinated by the small touches.

First of all, I am very happy that everything comes in black as I am a huge fan of black and everyone who knows that can confirm.

I  also really loved the personal touch with the name (silver, love) and the seal (red, love) on the back of the envelope. Besides the envelope, there was a crimson velvety fabric which symbolized the curtains in the theatre.

I was also happy to get the new booklet as they are a joy to look at and, in my opinion, Illamasqua’s looks are worth framing and putting on the wall which I will definitely do soon. I actually do have some makeup looks on my walls by the way…

As you can see, I really like attention to  the details. But now, when we are done with them, I can tell you about the actual products.

Products that I’ve got to try are:

Masquara (£15 ) in Raven (Midnight Black), Precision Ink (£17) in Havoc (Aubergine), Lipstick ( £15.50) in Kontrol (Blue Violet) and Pure Pigment (£15.50) in Berber (Auburn Shimmer).
