I recently acquired the Zoeva Mixed Metals palette after seeing some good reviews by different bloggers.

The palette contains 10 bright metalic eyeshadows. Each pan contains 1.5g of product, which at 17.50€ for 15g of product  makes this palette a very interesting one.

The palette contains a very interesting range of shadows, from more neutral ones to bright pops of colour like Copperplate.

New: Make Up Store Cybershadows

IMG_0945 The Make Up Store’s Cybershadows featured today are eyeshadows with a metallic finish which are the same size as a MAC eyeshadow. In this case I brought home three that could be considered variations of gold and two in the purple family. IMG_0946   The first three shades are Venus, Gold and Sable. As with all MUS Cybershadows, they are the same size than a MAC eyeshadow and they contain 2g of product.

Spotlight on: my MAC Mineralize blushes

MAC Mineralize blushes

MAC’s Mineralize blushes are a magpies dream! They are pigmented and reflect light in a gorgeous way, so of course I have bought a few of them over time.

The only disadvantage that they had was that I didn’t use them very frequently because they used to hid in my drawer. Now that they have been depoted (onto a Dome Z-palette) I expect that they will be used much more and that some other Mineralize blush might join them!

Favourites 2014

Favourite products 2014

 

So this is the almost compulsory feeling post that features all those products that I kept reaching for during 2014.

When you keep using a certain product it is because it performs well and you trust it to deliver good colour or to stay put for as  long as you are wearing it. Personaly, I love reading this type of posts as you can always find little treasures that you knew nothing about. So even though this blog is quite new, let me introduce you to my favourite products of 2014.

New: L’Oréal Collection Exclusive Pure Reds

IMG_0800

Let me introduce you to my latest fail when it comes to resisting a red lipstick, and I failed in a big way as I came home with the complete range of these beautiful bold lipsticks inspired by different actresses that are the L’Oréal Collection Exclusive Pure Reds.

When I saw news online about the launch of these I thought I might grab one or two (like I did in past launches of the L’Oréal Exclusive range), but I simply could not resist the selection of colours, specially since many of them lean pink and I think those kinds of reds suit me better.

Scandinavian inspiration

Inspiration

I am not sure if it is something in the air, if they all have gorgeous skin naturally or if flawless application is something you learn before you are able to vote, but I sure am seriously jealous of am inspired by the bloggers below.

They all share very good technique and they are able to be both very subtle and very bold, imaginative and colourful. Yet, in my opinion, they always retain a certain ethereal quality that I would love to be able to emulate (is it because of the light in northern latitudes?).

Also, it is very interesting to read their posts and see the products used as they tend to include brands not often heard of in the English speaking community. In fact, it was while I was browsing reviews for MUS products that I found Killer Colours for the first time!

Bonus blogger: Australian Karima from Shameless Friperies; because her style is somewhat similar, because I think she is cute and funny, makes me drool over brushes and has gorgeous looks like this glittery one that I crave, or this mermaid look that make me want to jump into the sea!

New: Kiko Daring Game Eyeshadow palette in 01Essential Brown

This autumn Kiko launched their Daring game collection, inspired by the world of casinos. It was a very sleek-looking collection and contained some fabulous palettes that included eyeshadow palettes and blush and bronzer palettes.

Among the many pretty things available I picked two of their Queen of Hearts eyeshadow palettes, 01 Essential Brown and 03 Elegant Ebony.
