The Paradox collection from Isadora is very pretty – full of dark and dramatic shades including a wow red lipstick and gloss. But, it more the peripheral products that have me hooked straight away. First of all, if you are a dark shade lipstick lover, the Perfect Lipliner Transparent Lip Fix, £9.25, is a transparent lip liner that stops your lipstick bleeding outside of the natural lipline – in damage limitation terms, it’s a must buy! 

Secondly, the twist up eye liners! They are buttery soft in shimmer-shot dark colours and could not be more up my street. Steel Grey, Dark Brown and Deep Black, £10.50m are beautiful. The palettes are great, too, especially Brown Patina and both have wet and dry options on the shimmer. I find quite often that smoky eyes focus on greys, blacks and purples and forget that brown smokies can look amazing.
