Grey Smokey Eye

Just a quick post tonight, but I had to share this look with you!

I am loving playing around with my eye shadows at the moment. Every day I try something new, whether or not it’s a brand new colour, or a brand new design, I don’t know why I’m doing this… it’s just fun!

I’ve never done this before where you only put eye shadow on the corner of your eye and the crease… but it seems to have worked out really well! I absolutely love this look – and may be trying it gain sometime…

I hate it when it goes so perfect that it never looks as good when you recreate the look, BUT! I will give it a shot…

Let me know what you think of this look and if you’ve ever done something like this before too!

Clinique Chubby Stick | Review

I am absolutely loving this product at the moment. My mum shops at Clinique for all of her make-up as it’s one of the only brands she has come across that so far, touch wood, doesn’t affect her eczema. It might be on the pricey side, but she swears by it and if it works then splashing out that little bit more than you would originally is sooo worth it.

Because she is a loyal customer, she gets all of the deals and gifts that Clinique offer. Just recently she got a free goody bag and shared it out amongst me and my sister.

Amongst the gifts came this Chubby Stick.

I’ve seen reviews on eyeshadows that come in this form before and have desperately been wanting to try it out. So when my mum offered me this, I couldn’t refuse.

The colour it came in is 09 Lavish Lilac. Although it isn’t the colour I would normally use, when applying it on my eyes for the first time I was pleasantly surprised. The shade seems to go amazingly well with my complexion.

Even though it is called lilac, it has a slight greyish tint which means it goes with almost everything. You can wear it on its own or even jazz it up a little by adding some powder shadow. I like to put it with browns or blacks and greys.

The texture is very creamy which is great as it seems to last a very long time on your lids. It also doesn’t collect in your crease as I have found quite a few shadows do by the end of the day.

There’s a slight metallic look to the colour which is really lovely allowing you to either dress it up or dress it down.

Since this stick has been added to my make-up collection I have not been able to get enough and have worn it pretty much every day!
