June 23, 2014

  These were picked up from Poundland on my recent “Accidental May Haul”. I’m a sucker for green and blue shadows, as they really suit my hazel eye colour. A quick swatch in the shop and I knew that these were coming home with me.

  I’ve been tempted by Au Naturel for the longest time, but couldn’t really justify it when I already have so many neutral palettes. Luckily for me I spotted this in the Superdrug reduced basket for only ¬£3.50 and absolutely jumped on it! The only damage was to a chip of plastic in the upper right corner and the eye-shadow Taupe beneath, and even so there’s plenty left in the pan.

There are four palettes on offer, Rock Chick, Diva, Burlesque and Twilight,¬†ranging from cool blues to fiery reds.

I’m always on the hunt for a great black eyeshadow, it’s a pretty big staple in the “rock chic make-up supplies list” yet I’ve never found one that I really got on with. This however is looking like it ticks nearly all the boxes! Ebony is a pressed matte black with micro glitter. It is very heavily pigmented and even more so when swatched over primer. It has a lovely soft texture and blends really nicely so would be great…
