Viktor & Rolf Bonbon Fragrance Set

Hello lovelies!

In the spring of 2014, Viktor & Rolf launched Bonbon Eau de Parfum, a fragrance that was love at first sight for me, from the moment I saw that cute adorable and feminine pink bow shaped bottle. I didn’t even care about its fragrance notes and the fact that Bonbon could probably be too sweet for my taste, I just knew I had to have it. I knew the caramel middle note, will wrap the entire scent in sweetness and since I always choose chocolate instead of caramel, I was prepared to sniff this fragrance and purchase it nonetheless, that’s how much I wanted it.

Melkior Ethereal Eyeshadow Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

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.

MustaeV Matt Eyeshadow Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello sweeties!

MustaeV Matte Eyeshadow is one of my newest shades that I’ve been teasing you with lately and also last week when I showed you my latest MustaeV makeup products (swatches, photos). A good shade that will match your skin tone and has a matte finish is a must so everyone should have it in their makeup palette or as a single eye shadows. For me some of go-to matt finish cream shades are Jordana Creamy Vanilla Eyeshadows, MAC Vanilla and the two lightest shades from YSL Nu 10 Color Eye Palette (review) and Lancome My French Noel Holiday 2015 Palette (review) so I definitely had to try one from MustaeV as well.
