EOTD: Sultry SAX...

Crikey the weeks are just flying by, and I didn't want to get to the end of March without creating at least one smokey eye :-) And because Summer is still making its presence felt, I added a touch of colour...

Most of the products I used were from the SAX Sultry Eyes kit - scored this in one of the first beautyheaven beautoriums almost 2 years ago, and it's still going strong. It's such a handy little kit, and although I only used the shadows from it, the whole thing is such great value (I think it's around $15), and brilliant for travelling...

The box is sturdy and has an elastic strap to keep it all neat and tidy. Inside is a mirror and easy to follow instructions on how to create a sultry eye look - the shadows are all marked 1 to 4 so you really can't go wrong. There's also a double-ended applicator, mascara and eyeliner, all nestled in their own little slots...

I used Maybelline Tattoo in Audacious Asphalt as a base (how did I ever live without this stuff?), and then applied shadows 2, 3 & 4 from the inner to outer corner. No. 4 is a brilliant silver will loads of metallic gleam, 3 is more of a shimmery medium grey, and 2 is an almost matte soft charcoal - they all blend superbly and last the whole day :-)

On the waterline, I patted down the olivey green from the Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Gel Liner stack - I use this quite a lot because it's such a pretty shade, and stays put for hours...

The only problem I have with SAX cosmetics is where to find them - they have a website, but I'm a looky-touchy gal and prefer to check out what I'm getting in person, and the only chemist in my vicinity that used to stock the range has decided to make room for something else - boo!

Their lipsticks are fantastic by the way - I showcased my favourite coral one just last month. Have you tried any SAX products? 

Take care of  you,

  1. I've never used SAX products before, but after this gorgeous smoky eye, I really want to buy that palette from the upcoming Beautorium :)

    1. Well I hope you score it hon - it does look rather lovely. I'm tempted myself, but I won't have time to get online before it sells out boo!
