So I was expecting to be putting up my Glossybox post today but instead I was looking through my barely used products ans I picked up one of my first ever highend makeup purchases, and what I thought was a disappointing product to say the least. But I decided to swatch it to see if my opinions had changes, and I’m pleased to say: Yes they have!
Looking at it in the pan all I see is a pastel pink eyeshadow I bought with a giftcard so I would get the Bonus Time gift, I know, I know you shouldn’t buy things for no reason…but this bonus time was amazing! At the time I loved pink eyeshadows, I’m not sure I really had a reason for liking them, I may have seen a YouTuber use something similar, and at the time I had to be able to recreate a certain look… Oh how times haven’t changed… Anyway when I swatched this earlier I am happy to report that I was more than just plesantly surprised; it is stunning.
First off the texture is like velvet, so soft to the touch and a dream to blend. The colour is gorgeous, a beautiful frosted pale pink, I’d say this could be worn all year round: in Spring/Summer all over the lid, and Autumn/Winter as an inner corner highlight. While this does have a lot of shimmer, it does not contain any large bits of glitter like you can find in drugstore brands’ eyeshadows making it an almost perfect product. I prefer to wear this with a primer as it can have a little bit of fall out, plus primer makes it last longer!
The packaging isn’t the most highend looking, it’s plastic with a mirrored effect over the top. The inside of the mono shadow has a decent sized mirror to ease on the go application. It also comes with one of those very unpractical sponge tipped applicators as well, but I removed it almost as soon as I got it.
The picture above doesn’t really do the eyeshadow justice, in real life it is warmer but my camera couldn’t show it well. If you’re on the lookout for a beautiful eyeshadow for all year rounds use, this could be the one for you. I’m seriously thinking about investing in another shadow like this from Clinique, I’d love to know any of your suggestions to which shade I should get next and if you have any blog posts that would be amazing!
