Candy Colour Eyeshadows

17 Eyeshadow in Dolly Mixture // 17 Eyeshadow in Pretty in Pink
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?

  12. I'd go to Inglot they do great matte colours and you can choose your colours so you get everything you want. or sleek do great palettes but you/might only get say 1 or 3 matte sshades. or youtube matte eyeshaow and you will get some ideas the videos might show neutrals but Im sure you will find some brights in there!

  16. Wow, you are soo pretty without your glasses! (Not that you're not pretty with your glasses, but they kind of hide your eyes if that makes sense) :)

  17. The one annonymous poster above that said Inglot, I agree on, you can make your own palette of what shades you want. You can do a duo, a 5, a 40, and an in between size as well, i cant remember if 10 or 20...their shadows are super pigmented, blend LOVELY and last well! Tweet me on @jadangel2001 if you want links or anything!

  18. you might try the chinadoll palette by lime crime. they're definitely not pastels but you could them use with a light hand or blend with a white shadow. lime crime makeup is supposed to be all the rage right now, i can't wait to get my hands on some! http://www.limecrimemakeup.com/products/CHINADOLL-pressed-eyeshadow-palette.html

    1. Thanks for the tip. I'd prefer to stay away from Lime Crime because of all the controversy surrounding their owner, but the palette itself does look nice!

  19. Shiro Cosmetics has a collection that might be to your liking. http://www.shirocosmetics.com/item_128/Kawaiishadow.htm I have them and they are matte and well pigmented so you can choose to build up the colour or have it sheer.

    I LOVE Shiro, have bought from her several times!
