Eyeko Fat Eye Stick

eyeko

Now that Winter is approaching, I really feel like experimenting with creme eyeshadows rather than with powder ones. I received this Eyeko Fat Eye Stick in Charcoal a few weeks ago from a swap with an American girl and I've really liked it so far! The product comes in a chubby stick, which makes it so cute and very easy to work with. Also, it's a twist-up pencil so no sharpener is needed!

The colour of it is a dark grey, almost black; it has a light silver sparkle, but it's almost unnoticeable. It has a creamy consistency and it glides on the eyelids like a dream! Sometimes cream eyeshadows can be a little stiff, but this absolutely isn't. I blended it with my fingers and the effect was perfectly fine. It definitely can be worn alone or as a base for a powder eyeshadow. This shade is perfect for a smokey eye look - sometimes I feel like black is just too much and I prefer using a grey shade which suits my brown eyes better. I'm looking forward to try some more shades!

China Glaze Tinsel Town

Photobucket

I am absolutely in love with Tinsel Town by China Glaze. It's part of last year's Christmas collection, and I was lucky enough to win it in a giveaway! It's just the sparkliest nail polish ever. From a distance it might look as a dark silver colour, but up close you can see it's a dark grey full of chunky and small glitters. It applies like a dream and it's perfectly opaque in just two coats. The only problem with it is that it chips like no other nail polish! It lasted only one day without chipping :( even with a topcoat, it'll still get all ruined.

What do you think about it? Have you tried it? x

PS: I have a $40 coupon code for inpink.com but I can't spend it because it's only valid to USA and Canada. Anyone wants to swap for it? (:

My top 5 neutral lipsticks

Even though I love bold, flashy lipsticks, the ones I wear most of the times are all neutrals - I usually go for "my lips but better" colours. Here are my top 5! They looked so pretty when I swatched them on my hand that I didn't want to take them off!

The first one I want to show you is the most recent addiction to my collection and it's Tarte Lip Surgence in Obsession. I already had one in Flashy and when I was asked if I wanted to swap for it, I couldn't say no! I love the fact that it comes in a chubby pencil. It's as moisturizing as a lipbalm (it also gives that tingly feeling on the lips) and has kind of a sheer finish. The shade is a browny pink, the most wearable colour ever.
The second lipstick is Isadora Perfect Moisture in 153 Bare Berry; the shade is in the same colour family as the Tarte lipstick, but it's a bit darker. It's also creamier, and it has a sheer finish. I love the fact that it's almost a brown but it doesn't make my teeth look yellow at all! (:
The next product is MAC Pink Plaid. This one definitely has a pink, almost mauve colour. It has a matte finish and I love it for a night out when I'm wearing a more dramatic eye look.
Another neutral MAC lipstick is Modesty; it's very similar to the Tarte LipSurgence in shade and finish (but it smells like vanilla ). The last lipstick is a Revlon Lipbutter in 050 Berry Smoothie. Oh, how much I love this one! The perfect pink shade that perfectly mixes with my lips and makes them look less boring.

Sleek i-Divine Ultra Mattes V2 Darks palette

Last week I visited my local Sephora after a long time, and I had some pleasant surprises. They are slowly introducing brands that have been popular overseas for years now, such as Urban Decay, OPI and Sally Hansen, but also the UK drugstore brand Sleek! I couldn't help myself from getting the i-Divine Ultra Mattes V2 Darks palette.

The packaging is of course sleek - it's black, thin and lightweight. For this reason, I would be a bit scared to carry it in my handbag, but I'm not used to have make-up with me during the day.

The palette comes with a huge mirror -which is always handy- and a long sponge applicator. The dimension of a single pan is about that of a €1 coin (1,5cm diameter). 
The thing that convinced me to get this palette is that it comes with twelve matte eyeshadows, which is very hard to find - unless you're not looking for a drugstore product! All the eyeshadows in this palette are highly pigmented and easy to work with. I absolutely love the neutrals in this palette (the last two in the first row, #1, #2, #3 and #4 in the second row) and I'm definitely going to make the most out of it. I only paid €9,90 for this product and I don't regret it! :)
