Tag: luxury eye shadows
We continue our Holiday Gift Guide posts, and this edition is focused on the luxury eye shadows, there are actually so many gorgeous ones that I will have to post Vol. II at some point, before everything is solf out…
Giorgio Armani Holiday Night Lights Palette, $140 from Saks
An elegant black lacquered palette adorned with Mr. Armani’s golden light-painted signature and features 2 tiers of eyeshadows and blushes.
Rich in micronised premium pigments and extra-fine powders, the easily blendable soft texture offers supreme comfort, superior coverage and durable colour. Available in 01 Forest Desire and
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.
I 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

I have already posted about some new lipstick launches but what about the eye shadows? Here is a selection of the most luxurious ones: Cle de Peau, Chantecaille and Tom Ford. Cream or powder, single or palette – the choice is yours. Let’s take a look.
Cle pe Peau are launching brand new Cream eye color solo – ombre crème solo ($45 / 6g) which are “dewy cream eye shadow that transforms into a silky powder”, and they look gorgeous. I wonder what is the shade of that burgundy one from Lucia Pieroni’s Insta photo. Is it 301? Probably, not.
Powder eye color solo limited edition – ombre poudre solo ($45 / 1g) “A silky soft long-lasting eye shadow that comes in three textures: shimmery, semi-matte and matte.”
Chantecaille Le Magnolia Eye and Cheek Palette ($83/£74)
If you follow me on Instagram, you could already see a preview of Rouge Bunny Rouge new products for Summer 2015. The most exciting one is probably their duo cream eye shadows. I have actually included these in my monthly favourites.
This duo actually combines two gorgeous shades: Atlas Swallowtail and Brocade Skipper (review and swatches), and regular readers will probably know how much I love both!
The texture is creamy and smooth it applies like a dream, blends out easily and stays on for hours without smudging or fading. I experience only minor creases by the end of the working day. Just make sure that you blend the product quickly (which you can even do with your fingers), as once set – it doesn’t move. One more thing which I have to mention – it is a great formula for mature ladies, as the shadows don’t enhance the texture of the skin.
The finish is
