Still getting those swatch posts written up and I know this isn’t one that’s been overly requested But I know a friend of mine has been intrigued by the neon’s so I thought she’d quite like to see this one – So this is for her! (And the rest of you, of course!)
On the flip side, though, if you want to have some fun and experiment with colour, play with doing some fashion looks or something alternative then this is the way to do it, for £4 you can really go all out and have a ball with these bold and striking shades.
The white, yellow and orange are some of the less pigmented shades But there’s some payoff from them all and you could definitely build them all up to a much better colour if that’s what you wanted, not to mention using a primer. That orange is rather striking and I don’t think it’d take much at all to get a pretty dense colour from it.
A very true purple with a lean towards neon, is how I’d describe the third shade, it’s a matte shade so not as dense as the first two but a good colour payoff none the less, and yet again easily buildable. Purple’s my favourite colour but not something I have a Lot of makeup wise (apart from plum and berry toned lip shades of course) so I am drawn to the idea of doing something crazy and bright with this shade, especially against my blue eyes… could make something rather striking.
I was expecting the green to be an almost khaki shade but, as you can see, it’s Really bright! I have no idea what I’d do with that shade but I’m sure it could be fun to try out.
That silver shade is gorgeous – I don’t know how when or why I might want such a bright, metallic silver but if I do this would definitely be where I’d come for it. One of the most densely pigmented shades in the palette it’s got a gorgeous shimmer to it. The black isn’t the most opaque I’ve ever seen but with a couple more swipes it probably could be.
A lot of fun to be had here – And I look forward to trying this out, throwing my neutral sensibility to the wind and making something different. I can harken back to the years when bright makeup was more my sort of thing, even if I didn’t get very far with it back then!
