Melkior Ethereal Eye Shadow entered into my life a few months ago at the last #BeautySwapbyBeautyBarometer event dedicated to bloggers. I was already familiar with Melkior eyeshadows but a nude eyeshadow is always a versatile shade and can be mixed with any other color and also used on its own for a natural, day to day look. So, I accepted the new Melkior Ethereal shadow into my collection and put it to the test to see how it performs.

Melkior Ethereal Eyeshadow (27.00 Ron for 3.2 g / 0.11 oz ) appears as a medium brown latte with gray undertones and a matte finish. This is quite a classy color, one that can complement any eye color and can match the skin tone of those with dark skin and used in the crease or in the outer corner of the eye for those with a lighter skin tone.

For me this holiday 2015 season was heavily dominated by Estee Lauder since I couldn’t resist their offers which were more tempting than ever. On my visit to Selfridges (video) I couldn’t pass by Estee Lauder Beauty of the Night Collection which features skincare deluxe sample size items worth over £85.00. I think is a great deal for your money since you get to try out a lot of the Estee Lauder skincare products only for the price of £35.00 and you are easily qualify for this purchase if you buy any other Estee Lauder product (skincare, makeup, fragrance). I must admit I was trying to decide what to buy as all the items and newness were so damn appealing so I really had a hard time taking the best decision and trying to do smart shopping but also thinking about the products that you guys may want to see swatched or reviewed here on the blog. So after I swatched multiple lip products and eyeshadows I finally choose to get Estee Lauder Give Every Shade Holiday 2015 Set ($49.50 / £55.00).

I knew exactly what department stores and beauty shops I wanted to see and buy from right before I came to London, so I had to stop by Harrods just because of my love for Dolce & Gabbana makeup. Obviously I couldn’t help myself of spending some change there on these gorgeous pink lip products and I also took a closer look at the new D&G The Essence of Holidays 2015 Collection (info, photos). Once I smelt D&G The One Essence fragrance, I had to put it on top of my “next fragrance purchase” list and I was also able to swatch the new D&G Sophia Loren Lipstick (photos) but decided the color is not for me, but definitely gorgeous and classy for more mature women.
