A mini makeover with Eleanor (Review)

You can't deny the role makeup plays in making a woman feel confident. And I do feel that moms need that confidence even more, considering all the unglamorous tasks they have to do. It's easy to neglect this part of your routine when you have little ones to take care of, but it really doesn't take as much effort as you would think. And the results are worth it!

I'm the kind of person who doesn't leave home without some makeup on, yet it's the kind of makeup that makes me look natural. When I was asked to review the Eleanor range of cosmetics, I'm glad it made me re-think my regular makeup basics, and go beyond mascara and lipstick.

Eleanor is an Italian-made brand of cosmetics available online on Their products are dermatologically safe, and not tested on animals. Currently, they have five product categories - foundation, lipsticks, blush, mascara, and eye shadow.

Here are my thoughts on the six products I tried. And if you stick with me, at the end of this post is a fantastic offer of AED 250 off on their makeup range!

1. Ultra Shine Lipstick & Intense Color Lipstick (AED 50 each)

Left: Intense Color Lipstick, Cinnamon Right: Ultra Shine Lipstick, Plum 
The Intense Color Lipstick that I tried in the Plum shade, is a smooth lip colour that has a moisturizing effect. All the six shades in this range are deep, so they're great for evening makeup, or if you want a bold look for the day.

The Ultra Shine Lipstick in Cinnamon is a brighter lip colour that's good for regular use. The shade I used is lighter than what I usually wear, but gives a good summer look, because of the sheen.

Top Left: Wet & Dry Powder Foundation, Warm Beige Top Right: Trio Powder Eyeshadow, Clover
Bottom: Powder Blush, Autumn Peach

 2. Wet & Dry Powder Foundation (AED 90)

I like that this product is versatile. You can use it in powder form for light coverage, or use a damp sponge for more coverage. I used the Warm Beige shade. Because I have uneven skin tone in some places, and a T-zone, I used a BB cream as a base. It created a smooth look in combination with the powder, but you can use it by itself as well.

3. Trio Powder Eyeshadow (AED 80)

I used the powder eye shadow in Clover. This palette has shades in brown, deep green, and a luminescent green. The lighter shades are best for the under the eyebrow, and eyelid. Brown can be used in place of an eyeliner for a soft look. I did use my favourite kohl liner in the lower eyelid to complement these shades. The dark shade can also be used to colour eyebrows.

4. Powder Blush (AED 70)

This blush in Autumn Peach is the right shade for a summer look. I don't use much pinks, so I really liked this shade. For the day time, I used it lightly with a fluffy brush, and for the night I intensified it with the brush it came with. The colour lasted for a good time, considering powder blushes don't usually stay on long.

6. Mega Lash Mascara (AED 60)

This mascara is only available in True Black, and a good thing about is that it sits lightly on the lashes. It doesn't create a curling effect, but it darkens the lashes and stays for a couple of hours, at least. It's also waterproof, which is something you must have in mascara.

Day & Night Looks with Eleanor 

With mainly a combination on the above six products, I created two different looks. For the day makeup, I used powder foundation with the lighter eye shadow shades, and the Ultra Shine lipstick. For the night look, I used the Intense Color lipstick, and a wet foundation base.


For someone who isn't a makeup expert, I was able to use Eleanor's products with ease. The range of colours isn't a lot, but it also simplifies selection, so you can choose what suits you best. You don't really need a huge collection to get your own mini makeover! And they are affordable too.
