Wet n Wild Eye Shadows in Don’t Steal My Thunder Review and Swatches

Finally I have tried the cult eye shadows  from Wet n Wild!  There is so much hype around these, that I just had to see what is it all about.

My friend picked up a classic “smoky eye” palette in Don’t Steal My Thunder for me and here is how it looks like.

Wet n Wild Eye Shadows in Don't Steal My Thunder Review and SwatchesI apologize that it is slightly messy, I should have taken the photo when the product was still new, as I usually do.

 And… these [eye shadows] are truly amazing! Very pigmented, smooth and silky.  They apply and blend out evenly and stay on for hours without creasing. I had high expectations, since so many people seem to love the brand’s eye shadows, and they

Love It: Daria Werbowy’s Makeup by Aaron de Mey

I just like Aaron de Mey, I really do. I like his style and his long hair(!) and his quite rebellious collections for Lancome. Glossy black eyes, deep blue eye shadows, the vampy shades for Fall, his collaboration with L’Wren Scott and  the Spring collection.

I also like Daria Werbowy. By the way, have you seen the French Vogue’s calender with her? Did you like it?

But today I want to show you the photos of Daria from Marie Claire US December 2010, makeup is by Aaron. There are 5 looks but I’ve chosen 3. I like that all the looks are quite simple yet elegant and beautiful.

I absolutely love the glowy skin, bronzy eyes and this bright lipstick, amazing combination!

Products that are used: Matte Color Design Matte Lipcolor in Posh Pink, Blush Subtil inShimmer Mandarin Sky, Essie nail polish in Secret Affair.
