Totally off topic, but you’ll never guess what has happened to my baby; my blog. It got hacked. There was a moment in which I thought that my content from the last three years had been totally eradicated but with the help of my host, some tactical backing up and a tiny bit of knowledge of cPanel and FTP, we have managed to get it back in working order. Thank god for that as the calmness that I was displaying yesterday would have soon turned to hysteria if I had lost THREE whole years of my life. It made me think about just how much I loved my blog and what I do, and how much I enjoy bringing new content to you each day. So, onwards and upwards today with a new post featuring three of The Estée Edits items for eyes.
Even though I only wrote about The Estée Edit The Edit Palette the other day, I felt I needed to add this into my top picks from The Estée Edit collection. Not only is the palette neat and compact, and perfect for travelling, but it contains some of the most amazing shades that I have been using more frequently than others. In particular, there’s a bone shade that is the most perfect transitional/crease colour that blends out the darkest of smoky eyes whilst leaving your eyes looking mesmerising and cleanly blended. I also love the innovate Transformer colours, which are the first I’ve seen from a brand.
The Estée Edit Metallishadow Cream + Shadow Duo jumped out to me as soon as I saw it. It reminded me straight away of the Tom Ford Duo colours, which are a little bit more pricier than these beauties. The shades span three different colours and I have Black Star; the blackest of black cream shadow with a space age meteorite black shadow. Aside from the creamy black shadow being a perfect base for the bright purples with The Edit palette, it works well alone as well as when packing the metallic shadow from the Duo on top. The sparkly metallic shadow does look quite scary at first but once you get the hang of patting it on the eye, bit by bit, you forgo the fall out and make eyes look so sultry and amazing that it’s almost addictive.
I don’t leave the house without eye liner, and my personal preference comes in the form of a felt tip liner. I use the L’Oreal Super Liner Slim daily but since using The Estée Edit The Blackest Liner, the L’Oreal has been cast to one side. Fat like a marker pen, with a thicker nib, The Blackest Liner draws the liner for you. It does take some careful angling to make a wing, especially on my old lady eyes, but I have never found a blacker eye liner that sits in place all day without smudging and budging. I don’t get any under eye smudging, and my wing stays intact til it’s time to take it off. It’s my new love.
