Whilst away in Dubai back in August, I was in Sephora looking for some bits that I haven’t really got at home and well, this 5 shade palette just stood out…Mainly because of the absolutely gorgeous gold shade in the middle.
Five warm toned brown golden shades, these are highly pigmented, long lasting and have a lovely smooth and buttery consistency.
Each shadow is consistent in terms of texture, application and pigmentation. I like how unlike a few other “one colour” palettes I have come across, I’m glad this has a good matte transition shade, pearl and metallic.
Although only five colours, the shade range is enough to go from a simple daytime to a dramatic look, being that you can add the golden shade and each colour is buildable. The palette is small enough to fit into a clutch that you can jazz up on your way to a night out. It includes a small mirror, which I personally find rather small, but for an on the go quick glam up, it will do. The brush included has a flat and angled brush that’s great for patting shadow onto the lid, creating a wing and getting onto the under eye.
This palette has without a doubt, become a staple in my makeup case and is a go-to when I want an effortless/smoky eye or unsure on what look I want.Super easy to create looks that will go with pretty much everything! All of these shades would compliment pale – deeper skin tones and are friendly enough for a total beginner or an expert.
These last easily 8 hours + which is bloody amazing if I say! I applied these at 5pm for a night out, and at 1.30am, it literally looked like I had just applied it not too long ago.
Get The Look
Shade 5 in the crease and outer ‘V’
3 over the entire lid
4 on the outer part of the lid to transition shade 3 and 5
Shade 1 on the tear duct area and shade 2 to blend together the tear duct and shade 5.
Under the waterline, I mixed shades 4 and 5 and patted this across the outer 3/4 whilst using shade 2 on the inner quarter.
Would I buy again? Yes
