Eye products of the month-June

Hi everyone,

Second part of products of the month:

This is my short list this month:

-Rubenesque Paint pot by MAC
This is a very pretty peach/gold/pink cream base with an incredible shine to it. Once you put it on it stays all day. I like to change my Painterly one for this one in Summer as it helps me achieve that sun kissed goddess look. I sometimes use it as a highlighter and on occasion on my lips! I totally recommend it. See swatches below.

-Eye shadow in 12-Bleu Magnetique by Bourjois
This is actually a very cheap Eurydice by Nars lookalike. I'll compare them in a separate post. It's a purple with blue undertones. It has some shimmer but no glitter. Just rediscovered this e/s from the back of my drawer. Brilliant for all over the lid or for your crease. See swatches below.

-Eye shadow in Bellbottom blues by My Face
I love this e/s. It's such fun when I use it and every single time I get really nice compliments. You can really build up the colour with this one and I recommend you use a wet brush. It has glitter but if you apply it properly it will stay and will eyes sparkle like hell. Love it. Brilliant for brown eyes. See swatches below.

-Eye Bright by Benefit
I think we all went mad for these Benefit freebies that came with Glamour magazine. I got the three products and I'm loving this one. I mainly use it under my brow bone as highlighter. Love it...super soft and super bendable.  See swatches below. It's a very pale pink.

-Eye liner in Blueberry ice by Gosh 
I purchased this one very recently. It's a very sheer lilac with a bit of white. The texture is very nice and super soft. I normally use it on my waterline and on my bottom lash line and it gives a really nice effect. See swatches below.

-Long-wear gel eye liner in Graphite Shimmer Ink by Bobbi Brown 
Not much to say about this one: just a black gel eye liner that will last all day long.

-Extreme Length Waterproof Mascara by N°7 (Brown/black)
This is a brilliant solution for very hot days. The wand is really good and I really like it. The brown/black colour is ideal for everyday looks as I don't look too done up.

Bottom row across: Blueberry ice. It's really frosty and shiny but unfortunately you cannot see that on this swatch.

I hope you liked it.

See you soon.
