Burberry Steel Grey is a different take on grey nail polishes. It’s a mid-toned grey that leans slightly green, with tiny gold shimmer. The shimmer is not very obvious on the nails, it’s most visible in the sun, but it does give this shade a complexity and warmth that is unusual for this kind of colour.
Chanel Joues Contraste Blush in Rose Initial #72 is a bright, warm, medium pink with yellow undertones. On me the shade looks similar to MAC Dainty Mineralize Blush, but the finish of Rose Initial is more subtle. It has Chanel’s signature micro glitter, just about the right amount not to be over the top but to lift the shade so it doesn’t look flat on the skin.
Bar #056 is an eyeshadow palette from Dior’s permanent range, realised in Fall 2014. It won me over after testing it in store where every shade swatched creamy soft and the colour combinations looked perfect for a smokey eye look. However, after I bought it and have been using it for a while this palette proved to be a hit and miss for me.
The sun woke me up this morning and inspired me to pick up one of the neglected coral nail polish shades from my stash.
Burberry Sheer Eye Shadows are my all time favourite single eyeshadows. They simply tick all the boxes when it comes to the formula, staying power, shades and finishes. Burberry recently reformulated their mono eyeshadow range, they are now called Eye Colour Wet & Dry, and I admit – I’m a bit scared to try them as I absolutely love the old ones.
I have finally managed to get some decent photos of my finishing powders yesterday, I’ve tried taking them twice so far but the weather in London just didn’t want to cooperate in the past few weeks! These are my favourite face products, I use them all a lot and rotate depending on the effect I would like to achieve on a particular day. I hope you’ll enjoy the comparison photos and find them useful!
It’s about time I write a review about this beauty. This D&G illuminator was a love at first sight. Even though it was one of my typical impulse buys, months after the purchase I’m still very happy with it.
Kiehl’s Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate
This fragrance-free 10.5% vitamin C serum is the star of this post. I absolutely love it. I’ve done a full review on it here and would gladly recommend it if you need a serum that will even out your skin, make it look fresh and plump.
Émotion Joues Contraste has been released in the US about a year ago. It was released quietly and, as far as I know, it wasn’t a part of any collection. It is still available to purchase from nordstrom.com.
Pink Cult is a blush that will be repromoted as part of the MAC Artificially Wild Blushes collection. This collection will soon hit the counters and it will consist of three blushes. Next to Skin is a brand new shade, while Pink Cult and Taupe are repromotes.
