Today I am posting something a bit different and not a usual product review like you were used to. The reason for it is, that my dear blogger friend Aida needed some help for her upcoming photoshooting, so I said, why the hell not. I am not a fashion blogger, what she was actually looking for, but I got an idea to mix it up with my makeup look. She agreed, so now I am showing you the pictures. I was wearing my current favourite eyeshadows from the newest Lancome Sonia Rykiel collaboration and two of the new Zoya Urban Grunge shades. All pictures (except one, which will be specified, are taken by Aida’s Photograpy). Check below for details and pictures.
Lancome Sonia Rykiel Collection
Let me firstly tell you a bit about the Lancome Sonia Rykiel eyeshadow palette. There two palettes in this limited edition collection and I got my hands on Parisian Fresh Spirit. A palette with amazing rose-gold-nude tones for everyday makeup. Since I got it, I can not stop using it. You can create a delicate day/office makeup, or a bit more agressive night makeup – depending on your preferences. In the inside of the palette, there is mirror with some instructions how to use it for a certain look. There are all together nine eyeshadows in the palette, where three of them are separated with a small chrome topper – these three are used for highlighting the under-brow area and as an eyeliner. I am really happy that the two eyeliner shades work so good, because I don’t like using a black liner everyday, so this a huge plus for my everyday makeup routine. The pigmentation is really good, but some of them are more shimmery, so I prefer to use them over another eyeshadow. The only thing that can bother you is the price – around 55€ in Europe and around 60$ in USA. I can only recommend this palette, because it is all you need for a good eye makeup – and in only one palette. If you are looking for quality, than you should defintely go for it.

Zoya Urban Grunge Collection
You are probably wondering what’s on my nails, right? Well, the new Zoya Urban Grunge collection. I got three beautiful shades from our lovely distributor and I decided to test them immediately. Zoya is promising that these new creme polishes are one coaters. Hell yes! I am so happy – the pigmentation is amazing. And it is not just what I am saying, but what you can see from the picture below. For this look I used Zoya – Tara (finally they gave my name to the polish!) and Zoya – Noah. To test the quality of these cremes I decided to do some stamping because there you can quickly see how they really work. Result: GREAT! As you can see, not that Tara stamps well over lighter base, but Noah stamps even better on a darker shade. The image used is from MoYou London Mother Nature 13 plate. The polishes are unfortunately hard to get in Slovenia, because they are available in only couple of stores, but if you have a chance, go and grab them – you will not regret it! 🙂
So, how do you like my new post? Any comments on pictures? Yay or nay? 🙂 I think Aida did a good job and I want to say thank you to her once again! 🙂 Hope you enjoyed it and stay tuned for more makeup looks and nail arts! :*
