This guide is all about makeup! More specifically eye shadows palettes. Every girls second (really first) love. And there are loads of amazing offerings this year.
First up is this BEAUTIFUL palette from Bobbi Brown, I managed to get my hands on one a few weeks ago and it has fast become a regular feature in my kit? I literally use it every day in work, the neutral shades are perfect and the glittery have just the right amount of glitter for you. The cheek colours are fab too, there’s a perfect nude shade which has the right amount of brown and the other is a perfect pink, and if you read this blog regularly you’ll know I’m not into pink blusher but this one is lovely, not too pink just lovely!
Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ll have heard that Urban Decay are collaborating with none other than Gwen Stefani. In this palette there are 15 eyeshadow and only three are existing one being their amazing black one, which when used wet is the perfect liner! There’s a lot of lovely in this palette, there’s a wait list and it’s not launching until Thursday but I’ve been assured that there will be stock available, just call into or telephone your nearest Urban Decay counter and get your name on the wait list.
This palette from Clarins is brilliant, it’s a little more grown up than the others but has a great mix of colours and textures, if anyone you know love Clarins this will earn you major brownie points! It even comes with directions on how to create different looks. As always with Clarins you can expect the highest quality ingredients with plant extracts and mineral based pigments at its core. They are available nationwide and will cost you €43.00.
The Double Exposure eye palette from Smashbox is by far one of the best on the market, the colours are amazing, there’s a peachy shiny shadow that’s just perfect for everyone, it lightens and brightens eyes and literally makes you look like you’ve had a full nights sleep if your tired. Every shadow can be used wet as an eyeliner, gold liner for Christmas Day anyone?? It’s €45.00 and you can even get it from Boots.
This cracker from L’Oreal is just €14.99, it comes with 10 shades from neutral mattes to deep smoke tones and at that price it’s basically free! And right now in Boots when you spend €14.99 on any L’Oreal products you get a free gift. Check it out here.
