Favorite eye products this month? Hard to believe but I’ve been trying to use (and actually enjoying) ABH Rosette eyeshadow (yes, really, a reddish eyeshadow) and also ABH Gleam, Truffle (Glitter) and Chocolate (the satin one with a bit of shimmer, not the matte one)

Ooops – it’s not “satin” – it’s Titanium. I do wish companies wouldn’t have 3 or 4 of the same type of product with the same name or slight variations on the same name!

Mariella – did you know that Brigette’s Boutique from the States has MAC’s Craving lipstick? The online retailer ships to Australia, so they would ship to Canada too. Currently they have 9 spare tubes of this favourite lipstick of yours. I have bought a number of things from this retailer and they have all been good.

Favorite cheek products this month? Clinique Nude Pop or Lancôme Cedar Rose Blush Subtil

Favorite eye products this month: Victoria Beckham Eye Brick in Silk. MAC Rubenesque Paint Pot

I have been lusting for one of the VB Eye Bricks, the greyish one, I can’t recall the name. Can you tell me a bit about the one you are using? Coverage, easy to blend, long lasting? They are not cheap so I would love to hear from someone I can trust, and I have a bit of an issue, trusting influencers in general. I am hoping the makeup products are worth the cost.

The pigmentation is quite good. No fall out. Super soft and easy to blend shadows. The one I have is gold and copper with a brown for definition. Not the most unique but if you like effortless and simple smoky eyes… Tweed, Tuxedo and Signature are more diverse and unique but I still quite like Silk. I have brown hair and eyes so the tones are flattering. It’s quite compact and small but it’s super hefty and lux feeling. Such a glamorous and elegant little compact. Feels much more luxurious than Charlotte Tilbury, Chanel or Tom Ford imo and more affordable than them. I think it’s worth the splurge. And if you purchase an eye luster, you can get more use out of the palette but I like topping an eye look with a pressed pigment or something like a Colourpop Super Shock or a Stila Shimmer and Glow. I wear MAC paint pot in Rubenesque to prime my eyes and I don’t really have an issue with fading or creasing. I’ve been quite obsessed with the little guy for about a month now but I’ve been into effortless and easy looks and the VB compact is perfect for that!

Thanks Erica for a thorough review. It sounds really good.
Once I’ve had my dogs teeth fixed, X-rayed and cleaned and maybe removing some I can think about buying makeup again. The little one had to have some of his teeth taken out and my is it costly. worth it of course, but a lot of money just flew away.
