I’m VERY late to the party with this post but I tried for so long to get my hands on this palette and Sunderland disappointed me. I apologise.
As you may be aware, one of my favourite Youtubers Sophdoesnails partnered with Makeup Revolution to create an amazing eyeshadow palette and a beautiful highlight palette. I was so excited when these were released in Superdrug, but by the time I got to my local store to buy the eyeshadow palette, they’d sold out. In that store, they hadn’t restocked the palettes since. I kept popping in every time I was in the Bridges and occasionally they had a highlight palette but never had any eyeshadows. Not one. I even checked when I was in Newcastle and they were out of stock too. Yes, I could have ordered from TAMBeauty but that means paying for shipping – I wish I had by this point though. So, you can imagine my excitement when a couple of weeks ago, I was walking past Superdrug and a small stack of her eyeshadow palettes caught my eye.
I had to get my hands on one straight away and even picked one up for my friend who had been wanting one for just as long.
So that explains why my review is so late. But that’s not going to stop me from showing you my interpretation of a look with some of the incredible colours in the palette.
The palette itself has beautiful packaging but the hard case is plain. Quite boring in contrast to the box, if I’m honest. However, the colours inside make up for it. I’ve never owned a palette with such a white white and a black black. The colours in-between are so varied but mainly warm-toned – there are so many different eye looks you could make with these shades.
My favourite colour has to be Pine Tree. I have never worn green eyeshadow in my life but this colour is such a beautiful, dark shade and I think it brings out the green in my eyes.
Here is the look I created…
I began by using pancakes as a base. Then went in the crease with peaches. This was a little too light for me so I went over that colour with pumpkin. I then covered the lid with cloudberry which has a lovely orange tone. After blending this out, I went back into the crease with danger to give my eyes a little more depth. I chose to use penguin in my inner corners to brighten up my eyes. Finally, I blended pine tree into my lower lash line to contrast with the orange tones.
The shadows are so pigmented that they lasted me all day without primer. Bonus!
Have you guys tried this palette? What do you think of my eye look?
It’s fairly festive because it compliments the Christmas colour palette.
