Clarins Ombre Matte Shadows

Hey Guys! 

So todays post is about the new Clarins Ombre Matte cream to powder shadow pots* are a new generation with a silky lightweight texture with mattifying qualities. I was lucky enough to get the chance to review these and i must say i do love them! 

The really nice thing about these shadows is the texture. Although its pretty much written in the name but these shadows are really creamy, and mousse-like texture to the immediate touch, however when applied to the lids they become really easily blended and more like a powder shadow. This is really great because it allows the shadows to blend but also apply very easily and accurately. I got 3 of the shades, 05 Sparkle Grey, 02 Nude Pink, 06 Earth, which again speak for the names, Nude pink being a pretty Nude Pink, Earth being a lovely Brown etc… 

I would say these are great for all ages really because of the cream formulae to begin with, it flatters all eye shapes and blends well. however very easily blend-able so great for younger people who just want something pretty, simple and easy to apply. 

 My favourite shade is ‘Sparkle Grey‘ because I’m not only obsessed with grey but i love a little glam every so often and this shadow contains little sparkles that just look stunning on the lids when creating a smokey eye. Paired with a little silver shimmer in the inner corner and your good to go! 

I would suggest using a primer with the shadows, although they are pretty long lasting on their own, a primer will help keep any minor creasing at bay.

Until Next Time

The perfect ‘Grey’ Nail-polish

Hey Guys!

I have always been the type of person who goes for the pastel pale nail colours over the deep vampy purples or bright pinks, because i am generally a very fair person, although i tan quite olive in the summer, i don’t have naturally very strong, long nails and pale pastel shades help to not only give the appearance of longer nails, but also make me look that little bit more tanned. If you watch my channel, youl probably know that I’m pretty obsessed with the colour grey at the moment! Its pretty much all my wardrobe has been until recently.

However, find the perfect grey polish isn’t like finding the perfect grey top. Its damn right impossible. Although there are some really pretty grey/purple shades out there, thats just it, they’re grey/purple, all the polishes I’ve come across have some kind of blue, taupe or purple tinge/undertone to them and thats not what I’ve been after.

so the search continued…

Until finally… i stumbled across the perfect pastel plane old ‘grey’. Thats it, no fussing, no mixture, just grey. Now i know that all grey polished are combined with the odd colours here and there to make it up, but this is the perfect pastel shade, its not too dark either and it last a long time. The only downside with this is that you may need at least 2-3 coats of the stuff to get a proper opaque look, but to be honest, after the amount of searching I’ve been doing, I’m not too bothered!

The shade is Cool Touch by Maybelline
