Eyeko polishmania

It might be obvious by now that I loooove nail polishes and when I saw the new polishes Eyeko is selling I couldn't resist. Especially when they offered the set with all of them for 10 pounds.

There are 5 new shades, I made a picture without and one with flash. The colour is more accurate on the first photo, but in the one with the flash you see more of the goregousness of Cosmic and Indigo polish.
Cosmic polish, Indigo polish, Purple polish, Lilac polish and Nude polish.

And here swatches:

How gorgeous are they?!!!

They are all very pretty and Cosmic and Indigo Polish are quite unique. I definitely would recommend them. 3 usual shades and two special shades for 10 pounds with free shipping worldwide is quite a deal. :-)

Hope you liked them!

H&M haul

It feels like ages since my last post, but I just moved to a new place and there simply was no time for posting. But I'm back with a little haul. :-)

I bought some sheets and towels from H&M and I came across this sweet Hello Kitty collection for just a few euros each, so I decided - what the hell - buy them.

They sold two colours and I bought them both, here some pictures:

A very intensive black and a nice dark purple. I was surprised by how pretty they are. They apply nice and evenly. And with two coats the colour was pretty opaque. So thumbs up for these polishes! :-)

I also bought the two eyeshadow trios they offered:

I thought they were very pretty and again H&M didn't disappoint me. With a good eyeshadow base the stay put the whole day. The colour pay off is a bit decent, but that's okay. Makes them more wearable. :-)

One thing though - the fall out while working with a brush is much. I took a picture.
So you really have to tap off any extra from your brush!

Other than that I'm very happy with my purchase and especially for that price.

If you want swatches let me know in the comments. I hadn't time to take some, I made the pictures in our old apartment and I just found time to unpack my Make Up in the new one.

So if you think about buying them, do it. :-)

Illamasqua Store Glasgow

I promised to finish my Illamasqua project and now it took me soo long.. I'm sorry about that!

At least all the swatches are online. So here some pics of the store in Glasgow:

The staff was sooo nice and helpful. I loved them!

And as said, as a Make Up Freak and Freelance Artist myself, I was proud that many customers thought I work there too and I even sold an eyeshadow. *gg*
The woman just kept asking about the shadows, so I picked one out for her. I'm still very proud about it! :-)

And here some pictures about the products, some are a bit blurred, sorry about that, but you all know with flash the products don't look accurate.

The foundations in all their glory.

Then next the brushes, which are supersoft and the primers and concealers.


Just so you know: I didn't get them accurate, some are, but for example the top row of the creme blushes isn't at all that orange. Those are reds, but unfortunately I wasn't able to photograph them right.

If you wonder why the "lower" rows have the blushes upside down: They made that, so the customers could see them better. Quite innovative I think.

Illuminators and cakes. I can't recommend the Illuminators enough! I love them. They are so multifunctional. Wish I could own them all!

Here are the eyeshadows and pigments! Just great:

Don't you agree? Well, how couldn't you..

Next the pencils. You can use them for every part of your face, may it be as lipliners or for your eyes.

Let's move on to the lip stuff, well I have to admit the picture of the lipsticks went horribly wrong so i won't post it, you wouldn't see the colours anyway, but the lipglosses worked:

Nice, aren't they. Again, unbelievable colour range.

And last, but not least the lashes and polishes. I love nail polish and Illamasqua definitely made a range that fulfills all my junkie needs. ;-)

A lot of rave I know, but I'm just honest. Illamasqua simply is that awesome. I don't get payed to say that, wish I would ;-) . Working there would be sooo gorgeous.

I hope you enjoy the pictures! I definetely enjoyed being there.
