there is something nice on the market very very soon: the SISLEY Paris phyto 4 ombres 2 mystery. I was one of the lucky bloggers that got one of these to play around and have fun with it. thank you SISLEY!
I indeed played with it and found some really nice looks with the gorgeous four colors. rather simple ones or more dramatic darker looks. As I love to compare things I wanted to compare it with the rather new CLINIQUE nutcracker palette.
PHYTO 4 OMBRES – 2 mystery
is a quartet of eye shadow that allows perfect control of color thanks to micronized pigments and ideal concentration. I love the texture of the eye shadows, its a mix between a powder and gel. the application is super easy and the eye shadows are very long-wearing. they do not leak into the wrinkles, nor in the folds of eyelids. the four colors make a variety of types of make-up looks – from rather natural to more intense to super dramatic also thanks to the various effects: matte bright, metallic and satin.

THE NUTCRACKER ACT I – snowflake suite / plié pink
inspired by the timeless ballet classic the four shades of All About shadows, plus plié pink blush make an awesome and timeless palette. launched right before christmas it was perfect to celebrate the holidays with sparkly eyes and soft, sweet cheeks. but even now I find these gorgeous four eye shadows are so great for an everyday look. but also in that very case the colors can be mixed and transformed into different looks – from very decent to super dark. the colors are called: Sugar Cane – Crystal Pink – Mushroom and Boron.

so as you may have figured out from my descriptions of the products I love them both! they are very different and can be combined for the perfect eye look. stay tuned for the photos with the looks on my FB page. xx
thank you Jessy for being my model for this blogpost – you did an amazing job! I got the CLINIQUE all about shadow quad at the bloggers event a couple weeks a go and I was eager to try it out. I got number 09 in the shade smoke and mirrors. four beautiful colors – a light silver – a light grey – a sparkling black with silver particles and a black. I used all of the four colors on Jessys eyes.
I started with the lightest color and I applied it allover the lid. then I applied the second color the light grey in the crease and smooshed it out towards the middle of the eye. then I went in with the sparkling black and colored the outer v the last step I did was I took the fourth color the black one and I used it as an eyeliner allaround the eye. thats it – four simple steps for a dramatic smokey eye look!
SMOKE AND MIRRORS

09 smoke and mirrors
ALL ABOUT SHADOW quad
11 intense clove
QUICKLINER FOR EYES INTENSE
01 very fair
ALL ABOUT SHADOW primer for eyes
48 matte petal
LONG LAST SOFT MATTE LIPSTICK
I really like the smoke and mirror quad palette – a perfect thing to travel with as it has soft and more bold colors in different shades of grey. another favorite of mine is the long last soft matte lipstick – the color matte petal is absolutely beautiful – I could wear this color everyday! certain things that I have to use a bit more are the all about eyes eye primer – I have used it once and I liked it but I can not really tell you if I like it better than my other primers – I need a bit more time for that and I have not used the brown quickliner for eyes intense yet but actually I never had issues with pencils.
