Another review! Sorry for the fairly basic nature of all my posts but I have been trying out lots of new things and I just want to share them all with you!
I went to T.J. Hughs a while ago to try and find a new bronzer (review of which to follow) and I also ended up picking this little palette up, in ‘Smouldering’.
The reason I did was because of the burgundy shade … I have been looking for a burgundy eyeshadow for absolutely bloody ages, and I have finally found it!
With the first application it does come out looking a bit grey-ish, but this goes away instantly after the second ‘coat’.
These eyeshadows are great. I picked up the palette for 1.99 (!!!) and I am really impressed. They are super creamy and blendable, and the consistency reminds me a lot of Seventeen’s individual shadows. As I’m sure most of you already know, I am obsessed with this brand so any makeup products that are similar to it, I’m obviously gonna love.
Back to the palette – the shade range is pretty, aside from the burgundy I especially love the deep bronze/gold, which I think would look great over my Maybelline Color Tattoo. I can’t see myself getting much wear out of the peach shade, but as this was only 1.99, I’m not going to complain!
The shadows also last super well. I wore the burgundy on a night out where a lot of dancing was done, so I know for a fact that they are sweat proof!
All in all I am very pleased with this random purchase – thank you makeup gods! Now I can finally recreate all those burgundy eye looks I’ve been pinning! If any of you have Pinterest then give me a follow – my link is in the side bar.
Much love xoxo
