Candy Colour Eyeshadows
Now I am by no means a beauty blogger, but I picked up these cheap bright coloured shadows the other day from Boots, & thought I'd show you a look using the Dolly Mixture pallette. I wanted some matte brights, so this trio fitted the bill perfectly. I picked up the other trio because it was 3 for 2 & I needed one more thing to pick out, & thought I might as well buy some pretty pink shadows too.
They aren't very pigmented, but for the price (around £5), they aren't bad. Next time I might use a primer underneath to help with the brightness, but for a subtle look they work well. I think this is the first time I haven't worn my glasses on the blog, as I do need them to see, haha! I also think I look weird without them, but makeup does tend to get lost with them on.
I also picked up this super cheap palette, it was about £2, reduced from £8.50. Now I definitely wouldn't pay £8.50 for it, the packaging looks rather cheap, & you don't really get much product. However, I haven't actually tried them out, just swatched them on my hand, so do take my words with a pinch of salt! These are shimmers, I didn't really want shimmers, but because of the price & also the pretty colours, thought I might as well add them to my limited eyeshadow collection!
I was originally planning to buy a higher end palette, but most I've seen are neutrals, or if not, they are shimmers & I couldn't be bothered to trawl through every makeup website. These will do for now, but can anyone recommend a decent palette in matte pastel brights?
