Happy Sunday! I hope your Fall is going well! It’s still a bit warm in Kansas City, but hopefully it will cool down soon!
This week I’ve been loving a shimmery cream eye shadow, under eye primer (different) and a gorgeous tanning mousse to keep my summer glow going:
Ellis Faas Ellis Lights for Eyes ($42 USD) –The lustrous metallic of Ellis Lights delivers lavish results in new metalised shades that bring a radiant spin to your eyes. The luxurious liquid formula dries beautifully, coating lids in a shimmery smooth, crease-free finish. The new shades are:
E306 in Beige: Beige goes bold, with high-intensity, statement-making lustre. Glide on solo for a gorgeously subtle, reflective shimmer, or layer atop your favourite shadow for a luminous highlight.
E307 in Chocolate Brown: Delicious, rich chocolate brown radiates immediate warmth and sexiness. Fierce and smooth, it glistens with multi-dimensional sheen.
E308 in Dark Metal: This superior gunmetal brings the smoky eye into a whole new light. The bold graphite hue is hit with black undertones, ideal for instant drama.
What I think: These creamy shadows are very easy to use. I apply with the brush applicator, then blend with my finger. They dry fairly quickly and are so pretty on. They are shimmery, but not too glittery. The shades are beautiful for Fall and the packaging – that silver bullet – is cool and elegant!

Korres Greek Yoghurt Under Eye Priming Moisturiser ($36 USD) — This advanced nourishing eye cream is formulated with Yoghurt, a centuries-old Greek skin soothing solution, and myrtle and rhodiola rosea extracts to reduce the appearance of dark circles, fine lines and puffiness. The cooling treatment perfectly primes the delicate eye area for flawless concealer application and is ideal for sensitive eyes prone to allergies. The ceramic cooling tip gently massages eyes with each application, giving eyes a refreshed and rested look.
What I think: This is a neat product! It primes under the eye for fresh-looking and long-lasting concealer. It does cool my skin and make it very smooth. Concealer applies very smoothly afterwards.

MineTan Caramel Self Tan Foam (34.95 USD) — Not too light and not too dark, Caramel is perfect for those looking for a classic, sun kissed, golden skin finish in as little as one hour. This easy to apply, streak free and self adjusting formula ensures a streak free, natural looking finish every time. Quadruple dark bronzers work with tan extending multi-vitamins and oils to deliver a picture perfect tan in an instant that continues to develop into a natural golden skin finish without the fake tan smell.
What I think: I don’t wear as much self tanner going into the cooler months, but I do like a bit to give my pale skin a glow. This shade of MineTan is perfect because it is not too dark, plus it’s customizable. I can leave it on for 1-3 hours, I just need to rinse it off after the time I want. It does continue to develop, but gets to the color that I like. It’s a beautiful tan shade and isn’t orange! MineTan also comes in darker shades like their Coconut and Violet tanners.
