In vogue...

'In Vogue' and 'Biscuit' are my two favourite eye shadow colours to use as of now. You know the phase when one is absolutely obsessed about using a set of products to the extent that it becomes almost habitual? This is exactly what I've been doing with these two products since the past few weeks and thought I'll let you guys know about them.

'In Vogue' by NYC is my first favourite as its a rich, delicious looking satin-matte purple shadow. I had forgotten how much I loved colour before I discovered this little gem.

'Biscuit' by Barbary Daly on the other hand is an everyday essential. It's a toasted beige colour, pretty much of my skin colour and has a slight pearlacent sheen to it which avoids it looking too bland.

I like the fact that both of these are drugstore items are easily available on a trip to your local Tesco and Superdrug and are cheap as chips! Always helps to have favourites that don't cost a fortune eh?

Both of the shadows are moderately pigmented and can be built for a more dramatic finish. I like to apply them sheerly to look daytime appropriate.

Here's a little EOTD for you guys to see how the products look in action. Not so dramatic but quite a soft and feathery effect going there which I quite like. 

It doesn't look harsh but still defines the eyes so beautifully in my opinion.

What combinations have you been liking recently?

Totally would never have thought to put these two together but they look amazing. I love the look of the Barbara Daly shadow. How much is it?

Well, that's taught me a lesson. I was looking at those colours thinking no, not for me, don't like them and anyway they'd be awful on my skin tone. And then, ta daaa! The look you've created is gorgeous AND we have similar skintone anyway. So that's me told!
