The packaging is really nice (I like anything white!) and there is a double ended sponge applicator inside. I didn’t use this, I use my own brushes, but the sponge applicators are quite firm to touch and flexible, for ease of application. This is great news for a product that’s just £4.
Naked and shy are great base colours. They are very nude and whilst these two colours aren’t as pigmented as the others, they are great as highlighters under the brow line and in the inner corner of the eye.
The other colours are nicely pigmented but not too much that they produce lots of ‘fall out’ on your cheeks. This palette of colours also blend really well together. Firstly I tried Naked, Wink and Obsessed, which is a great combination. Corrupt is very pigmented and goes on easily, creating a really dramatic effect. When used with Reveal and Obsessed, it would create a look of drama, without having to go crazy with colour.
I really love the shimmery metallic shades too, like Devotion and Tranquil. I’ve recently been using Maybelline’s Diamond Glow palette in Coral Drama and these shades remind me of that. Shimmery metallics are great for Spring into Summer and I know I’ll be using a lot more of them this year.
To be honest, I can’t really fault this palette. It’s a great addition to my ever growing makeup collection and think it could very well become a favourite.
Undress Your Skin – Shimmer Highlighter
Shimmer highlighters are not something I’ve really used before, but I thought I’d give this one a try and see if I could be converted.
