Urban Decay Roach, Rockstar and Virgin eyeshadows

UrbanDecay eyeshadows Rockstar Roach Virgin

I ventured into the world of Urban Decay eyeshadows relatively recently which, I admit, is a crime for an eyeshadow lover as I am as their eyeshadows are recognised as some of the best on the market. Faced with an extensive choice of shades and finishes in their London Covent Garden store I had a really difficult job of choosing just a few. They all swatched beautifully – I haven’t noticed any issues with pigmentation and they all felt very soft and velvety. Impressive, considering there must be over sixty shades in Urban Decay’s eyeshadow collection.

At the end I went for Roach, Rockstar and Virgin eyeshadows as I knew those are the shades I would use a lot.

Chanel #697 Terrana Le Vernis Nail Colour

Chanel le Vernis 697 Terrana

Terrana is one of the four nail polishes released in Chanel’s Summer 2015 collection. It’s the only one with shimmer and slightly metallic finish and it immediately caught my eye. I’m not crazy about metallics, but there is something about this shade that makes it look so sophisticated and stylish on the nails.

Chanel Rose Initial #72 and Rose Pétale #99 Joues Contraste Blush

Chanel Rose Initial Rose Petale Joues Contraste Blush

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.

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!
