Ellis Faas: Ellis Eyes Lights Eyeshadows FotD

As you may know, my birthday treat to myself was a couple of Ellis Faas Ellis Eyes Lights shadows. I created a FotD with E305 – a rich burgundy brown with amazing green duochrome – at the time, but I’ve since got around to wearing the E304 – a shimmering lilac metallic – and this is how it looked under a variety of lighting conditions: […]

Ellis Faas: Ellis Eyes Lights Eyeshadows.

My birthday treat to myself was a trip to Liberty to have a look around the Le Metier de Beaute counter, and play with the Ellis Faas eyeshadows.

I love the entire ethos behind […]

Review – Eyeshadow Primers

Today, I’ve decided to to a side-by-side product test. Two of my all time favourite products are MAC Paint (which I use as an eyeshadow primer, as well as a colour) and Urban Decay Eyeshadow primer. Up until now, I’d be hard pressed to say which was better, so I’m trying them both out at the same time, with an eyeshadow that I already now […]
