Ambrosia Cosmetics Steel Grey Eye-Shadow #704 vs Sacha Smoke

Sometimes it’s a great thing that you don’t get what you want since the substitution maybe a diamond in the rough. When I was developing my ambrosia creative palette I wanted all matte eye shadows and I needed a grey to be one of those colours. Unfortunately they were sold out from their annual sale and I settled on a shimmery grey instead called Steel Grey. This one is amazing! It’s smooth in application and very pigmented on its own without any primer. It actually appears darker, more to its actual name than how it appears in the pan (more silvery). The only downside from wearing is that you do get some eye-shadow fallout from the sparkle even with a primer. But simply gorgeous otherwise.
The other pretty grey in my makeup arsenal is Sacha’s Smoke. Now this one is shimmery as well but with a bronzy duochrome but it reflects all colours of the rainbow in the sunlight. It appears darker than Steel grey in the pan but on application it’s a softer grey. It’s buildable all right but still soft. It blends out nicely to create a soft smoky eye, which I sometimes do for work. I get minimal fallout with is one but I find the colour fades a bit for me at the end of the 8 hour workday. 
 
Which one do I like better? Well it all depends on the occasion. I prefer Sacha’s Smoke for an everyday type of wear but Ambrosia’s Steel Grey for the dark sultry smoky night time makeup. I will create some looks for you to see soon!
Happy Grey Eyeshadows!

To Russia with Love from a MAC Russian Red Lipglass

Bold red lips at the touch of a lipglass! I remember when I was afraid to wear red lips. I thought it was just so bold and my timid personality preferred to stick with soft pink lips. Well those thoughts have faded with age and now I can face my fears with the beautiful MAC Russian Red lipglass. 

Nail Challenge Day 10: Blue Black Gradient Nails

Just when I thought my Rainbow nails were my favourite so far in the challenge, along came the gradient nails and replaced my love in an instant. I couldn't believe how stunning the combination of black and blue would look together. It's a truly simple design that is very popular with the DIY nail polish crowd.
