BEAUTY: By Terry Ombre Blackstar from Space.NK

There's one high end beauty shops you constantly hear beauty bloggers talking about - Space.NK Apothecary. There's one in the town I grew up in but it was always a shop I didn't really understand what it sold and therefore never ventured in. However since becoming a blogger it's been one of those shops I've wanted to visit, not only to experience the wonders of NARS Sheer Glow Foundation and Laura Mercier Radiance Primer but also to see which new products it had to offer. My make up bag is a mixture of high end and drugstore products, recently I've been moving towards high end products (mainly because I got some for birthday/Christmas) as I love the finish and longevity. As our wedding is quickly approaching I've been searching for beauty products for eye's that would last all day (and the inevitable tears!) After a fair amount of searching I kept coming across the ByTerry Ombre Blackstar Cream Eyeshadow. It's a cream eyeshadow, with a slight shimmer and a range of shades.

Your eyelids are smoothed, restructured and enhanced - in a single stroke - with silky, luminous colour from this luxurious soft and creamy eye shadow. In six light-catching, buildable shades, it's perfect for creating a natural or smokey look. The waterproof formula won't smudge or smear, and the narrowed, precise pencil tip glides on smoothly for perfect day-long colour - that's also extremely comfortable to wear.

After swatching all of the Ombre Blackstar eyeshadows (about 20 times) I settled on the No. 6 Frozen Quartz shade. It's a  lovely pink, shimmery colour. The other shades available are: Black Pearl, Silver Granit, Blond Opal, Bronze Moon, Misty Rock, Fizzy Jade, Paradise Island, Black Matte, Brown Perfection, Blue Obsession, Ombre Mercure, Velvet Orchid, Midnight Forest, Beyond Gold.   
I love that you can blend the eyeshadow out to achieve a lighter coverage or really build it up. I've been wearing this at the weekends, applied all over my eyelid and then putting a purple eyeliner just in the crease and then blending it out. It's such an easy, fuss free look and really effect.

These are £28 each, which is expensive, but they will last a long time and the quality is just outstanding. I'm yet to find a drugstore/cheaper cream eyeshadow that is anywhere near as good as this one!
I applied this in the morning and by the evening it looked exactly the same - there was no creasing, no rubbing off or loss of colour pigment! Ideal for wedding make up - I'm now eyeing up the No. 5 Misty Rock (a more purple/darker shade) and No. 3 Blond Opal (a lighter/pearly shade). I think this trio would create the most beautiful wedding make up look.
