First reactions and swatches – I ♥ Makeup – ‘I Am In Love’ palette

What could be more fitting for someone who’s a month away from getting married than a palette called ‘I Am In Love’. It couldn’t have arrived at a better time, either, as I am writing this the morning that I am embarking hen weekend and this mini palette is just perfect for travel and it has the Exact shades I want at the moment so you can bet this has gone with me! This post is actually going live a few hours before I have my hen party,  how exciting! I will be wearing some of these shades as you read this… Woohoo for post scheduling. Anyway, as per usual, I digress. The palette…

I managed to just totally miss a pun as I, unintentionally, started writing here ‘I am in love with this palette’, it wasn’t meant to be a joke but with the name of the palette as it is it works quite nicely! Really though ‘I Am In Love’ with this palette, the size is just perfect for travel, the little lipstick in the side is so handy and the shades are gorgeous. I also, totally, love the font on the front, it’s just gorgeous.

Inside the palette you have two matte shades, four shimmer shades, a good sized mirror and a lipstick – A perfect little ‘look in a palette’. Obviously I, instantly, fell for the pink tones in the palette and they’re totally wearable which helps.

The top row offers up a creamy matte shade which is surprisingly pigmented considering it’s a matte. The centre shade is a bit special, though, as you can see in the top photograph it looks almost transparent, completely sheer with a lot of shimmer but when you see it in a different light you can see the pink in it. Last we have a beautiful pink shade, not much to say about this one, it’s just lovely!

The second row has a dusky pink matte shade (this is so close to the pink I’m having in my wedding!) and I have been wearing shades like that a Lot recently. To accompany it there’s a medium, cool toned brown with a beautiful shimmer to it and lastly is a darker brown with a hint of red shimmer in it. Honestly these shadows really have such a depth of colour, it’s wonderful.
I wasn’t expecting much from the lipstick – In this type of palette I’ve had from other brands the lipstick is a bit of an after thought but, thankfully, I was rather nicely surprised with this one. It’s incredibly creamy and nicely pigmented. It’s not a shade I’d ordinarily wear but I’d like to see how is translates on the lip… watch this space for that one!

So, that’s it… £5.99 gives you all of this and it’s fantastic quality – Very impressed. If this shade set isn’t for you it might be worth checking out the other shades (HERE) as there’s some other beautiful ones available.

    I like the look of this and these were my fave colours too. Does the lipstick have a name? Also is it the usual size so you could put another lippy in the slot if wanted? Thanks.
