Successful Italian cosmetics & skin care brand, Deborah Milano, is hoping to match their success over here in the UK. Whilst browsing their online store (here), numerous products caught my eye. In particular was the 24Ore Velvet Eyeshadow collection which you can browse here. I was lucky enough to get to choose two eyeshadows from this stunning collection. This was a difficult task as there are over 20 shades availble, ranging from earthy tones to vibrant blue, green & purple tones. In the end I opted for shades 19 Silver Lapin* and 08 Grey* in order to create a smokey eye and pair it with a deep berry lip for the perfect autumnal look. Silver Lapin is a shimmery metallic shade that's a cross between gold and silver. I sweeped this all over my lid using the provided sponge applicator (a rarity for me), as it packed on the product perfectly. I also used a liner brush to apply this shadow in the inner corners of my eyes. This gave an overall glowy, luminous look. I then used Grey, which is more of a matte shade, in the outer corners and blended it into the crease. This provided the wanted smokey effect and to create a softer look, I blended some of the shadow along my lower lash line. Overall, I am so impressed with these eyeshadows. They blend super easily, the colour pigmentation is excellent and the longevity of the products is amazing! I thoroughly recommend this eyeshadow collection, especially when creating dramatic looks for the upcoming party season. At only £5.50 each they are superb quality and not only this, but from the 1st of November each eyeshadow will have 50% off! Bargain! Have you heard of Deborah Milano before? Let me know what you think of this makeup look!
