If you didn’t see my post on the fabulous ‘Dream Box’ by Jane from BritishBeautyBlogger and the lovely people at Latest In Beauty, yesterday, then you are missing out on a feast for your eyes. Such a fabulous box, and if you weren’t lucky enough to get one I’ve linked up to LiB’s competition to win one of 5 boxes, in that post, so go check it out HERE.
One of the items I was really pleased to see in the box was an ‘Awesome Eyeshadow and Eyebrow palette’ – Now these are only worth £4 so it wasn’t the value of the item that excited me, it’s the fact that so many people will be introduced to the brand And, like me, may get a palette that challenges their colour choices and breaks them out of their comfort zone. I got the brightest palette of the lot ‘Make Believe’ and I am So glad I did, it’s stunning and I already have all sorts of plans for what I’m going to do with it.
If you got this palette, like me, then take a look at the swatches below, see how stunning they are, maybe you can find a place for this in your collection! And if not, then see the quality of the shadows, maybe you should be swapping with a friend or purchasing a neutral version because I think these little palettes have a space in anyone’s collection.
I absolutely love the size of these palettes – They fit into your palm a little like a smart phone would yet they hold 14 shadows and two brow colours; talk about compact and convenient! This is the type of palette you want to travel with or that you want to have hanging around so you can put together a different look every day! The quality of the shadows is exactly as I’ve come to expect from that brand, beautifully pigmented and creamy to apply. Let’s get on to the shades!
The first shade is a gorgeous soft pink but, as you can see in the photos, it has a gold sheen to it that just glows. The second shade is soft creamy shade but it has the brightest pink pearlescence to it; Much Much more than shows up in the pics, it really does have a bright pink sheen to it, stunning. The last shade is a very pale neutral sort of shade with a silver shimmer to it. Beautiful.
You can expect a neutral version of this palette showing up this blog in the future, I love how convenient and compact this is and, with the more obvious daily shades, I think I could get So much use out of it. Though I can’t wait to play with a number of the shades from this brighter one too.
