Dolce & Gabbana The Eye Shadow in Stromboli Review, Photos, Swatches

Since we are talking about Dolce & Gabbana today, I thought I would share my impression about their eye shadow quad in Stromboli.

The eye shadows come in a signature gold D&G packaging.

There are four wearable shades in this quad. They are: beautiful true gold, reddish warm brown, caramel warm brown and black with tiny silver shimmer. You can’t really get wrong with these eye shadows and they are perfect for an every day look.

My favourite shade is probably the reddish brown as it looks beautiful on my eyes.

The texture of the eye shadows is

YSL Eye Shadow Duo in 35 Caramel Tan/Burnt Brown Review, Photos, Swatches

So I’ve promised to review some products from the YSL summer 2011 makeup collection that I’ve mentioned here.

I’ve already reviewed the new Volupte Sheer Candy lip balms which I adore  so now it’s time to write about the eye shadow palette and the blush.

Today I will tell you about the eye shadow duo in  35 Caramel Tan/Burnt Brown (Terre Halee/ Brun Embrase).These eye shadows come in a signature gold YSL packaging with two sponges.

And I actually use the sponges when I apply the eye shadows as they pick just the right amount of the product.  I  don’t like brushes like MAC 217 with these eye shadows because they don’t pick up the right amount of  the product which leads to a very sheer application. This is why some people may think that YSL eye shadows are not pigmented. They are, you just have to find the best way to use them. You can also try using them with a slightly dampened brush.

Here is the palette in different light

As I already said, I apply with the sponges from the palette and then blend with a blending brush.

As for the texture, these eye shadows are

Ellis Faas Lights in E301, E303 and E305 Review and Swatches. Rave

Do you remember my post about Ellis Faas Lights?  Now that I have 3 shades out of 5 I would like to tell you my impression.

First of all just look at the design, it looks amazing to me, absolutely unique and I really like this elegant and sophisticated  futuristic silver. Let me tell you that people, both women and men, always ask me about  Ellis products when they see them.

Although the design is the same there are labels on on each product which won’t come off so you can actually see what colour you are reaching for.

Each Light has this brush which you can use straight on your eyes I guess, but I still use it with my brushes.

So the shades that I have are: E301 (warm silver), E303( bronze) and E305 (holographic Bordeaux). Let me tell you that I absolutely love all the shades and I’ve added the E302(gold) and E304(lilac) to my never-ending  wish list because I do believe it is worth getting them all! After reading this post you will understand why.

Let me start with the colours…

They are absolutely beautiful, silver and bronze are like true  metals and as for E305 it’s a beautiful and duo chrome colour which I like a lot. One of the reason why I like it is because the colour of
