In my most recent video I film my First Impressions on the Hello Flawless Foundation by Benefit. I am however wearing some brand spanking new eyeshadows which I purchased in Hawaii for my Honeymoon that I wanted to share the swatches with you! (as well as the rest of the makeup that was on my face.) There will be a Chit Chat Get Ready With me coming for the look, but just to keep you entertained I thought this would be a cool way of sharing the product details with you 🙂
I can safely say the pigmentation is beautiful, the eyeshadows are creamy and buttery, just what you would expect for the $36US at Sephora. I also liked that it did have a great selection of light, medium and dark tones to work with.
The idea behind the palette is to work horizontally with three of the colours, for example you would use Full Moon as the brow highlight, Nightcap on the lid and Coco Star on the lash line and outer V for more definition. I do like this concept and the palette does actually come with cards and pictured demonstrating how to create the looks, however I do prefer to do my own thing and play around myself!
As I am a Shimmery kind of girl, of course my fave colours would be Full Moon, After Hours and Night Cap – it’s obvious that these colours sold the palette to me. I’ll admit it – shimmery beige/ champagne colours make me weak at the knees! I am drawn towards neutral palettes but I like that this one has the olive colours in Moonstone and Night Fever, I didn’t quite have these colours in my collection.
Another point about this palette is that it can quite obviously be used for day time use as well – you can definitely limit the darker colours used and not use a black eyeliner which will make your eye look much more “day- appropriate”.
