I was absolutely thrilled this week to meet up with Dr Hauschka's International Make Up Artist, Karim Sattar not once but twice to not only get the low down on the brand new Dream Eyes collection (pictured) but also glean some handy hints and tips that I'll be sharing this week. This limited edition collection places eyes firmly in the spotlight with a universally usable eyeshadow trio, new kajal liner, Volume Mascara and two natural hair (pony don't you know) and birchwood brushes. Let's take a closer look shall we?
|Dr Hauschka Dear Eyes Eyeshadow Trio Palette: €32.95|
First up, housed in heavy plastic, high shine rose gold, the Dear Eyes Eyeshadow Trio Palette is designed to complement every eye colour and add radiance to any look. In keeping with Dr Haushcka's ethos of using natural ingredients, each creamy, soft shadow contains fine silk powder, kidney vetch extract, witch hazel and black tea.
The Sparkling Nude can be used as an eyeshadow base or indeed highlighter, Pearly Rose adds a subtle freshness to the eye and Matt Chocolate is designed to give the eye depth but can also be used damp as a soft, defining liner.
|Dear Eyes Volume Mascara: €24.25|
Though this quote may be true, the fact is the ingredients in Dr.Hauschka Volume Mascara Black are just a leeedle bit lovely. Beeswax, candelilla wax, rose wax and silk all work to wrap the lashes individually while the bushy brush gives volume, curl and some serious staying power. The scent of rose from this formulation is unmistakable ( I loves it) but sensitive eyed lovelies can be sure that extracts of black tea, neem and eyebright care mean it won't aggravate the delicate eye area.
|New Formula Dear Eyes Kajal Black Liner: €16.00|
Made with a composition of botanical oils and waxes, this new formula kajal liner is soft and malleable but sets quickly to add definition to your eye look. Karim offered that very handy pocket tip, which I duly tweeted and the ever astute Mags from EmeraldEyeliner.com volleyed back with the an alternative warming place. (Loving your work as ever Mags).
|Dear Eyes LE Brushes: Definer: €22: Blender: €26.50|
Dr Hauschka Dear Eyes is on counters now but again is limited edition, should you like the look of any or all of these pieces my recommendation if to hotfoot it to your nearest stockist quick sharp. You'll find stands in Health Stores, good Pharmacies, Avoca, Harvey Nic's and McCabes@ Clerys.
Tell me, has anything caught your peepers?
