It’s already a tradition to write about Pantone colour of the year, and I was eagerly looking forward to the announcement. And, not only do I love it [classic blue], I am also not surprised by their choice, I think it’s a good one.
“Instilling calm, confidence, and connection, this enduring blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.”

As for beauty and makeup,
I remember when Ilamasqua just launched in November 2008 (Makeup4all actually launched 3 months later, so I covered all their collections) – it was something different and unique, something edgy, alternative, and opposite the mainstream, so to speak. Their collections like Dystopia and Theatre Of Nameless were so unlike anything else with the gorgeous looks from Alex Box and unreal shades of the products.
To be honest, I wasn’t a big of the latest releases such as Glamore and similar ones, as for me it wasn’t the Illamasqua I loved. This is why it is very nice to see how they are back to their roots with this new To Be Alive Collection.
Striking visuals with fierce makeup and stunning model. The products in the collections are well-edited and unique:
Spirit Palette, £34
- Powder Eye Shadows in Cascade (ultraviolet light), Inspire (rich true blue) and Refine (intense midnight blue)
- Shimmer Cream Eye Shadow in Awaken (delicate ice blue).
Glamore Lipstick, £18.50
I already reviewed Daniel Sandler’s Long Lasting Waterproof Eyeliners. I have five shades out of six: Black Velvet, Brown Velvet, Purple Velvet, Grey Velvet and Green Velvet (Blue Velvet is the one missing).
But recently those liners got a lill’ makeover; now, instead of black packaging, you get a matching colourful one, which I personally like a lot. Plus Daniel added a new shade – Aqua Velvet, which he kindly sent for me to try.
And… it is my favourite one! After the brown one. But you know me and the brown eye pencils, I can’t live without those.
But back to the Aqua shade. If I had to write a feature about my top 5 Daniel Sandler Cosmetics today, this would be in it, for sure. Yes, I like it
Blue eye liner can be tricky and I’ve been avoiding blue shades for quite a long time. But, hey, it’s only makeup, you can always remove it! And I love love LOVE trying different colours and shades on my myself and others.
So I’ve picked 5 different shades of blue eye liners from my collection. They are totally different and I love and wear all of them.
The shades that I’ve picked are:
Korres Eyeliner in Blue Black
The name pretty much says everything. It’s a very dark shade of blue.
