Hi it’s me again, I’m back! Two blog posts in one weekend is a newly set record for me. However, this palette is just so beautiful I cannot just ignore it. I got in Friday night and the parcel was sat there waiting for me. The excitement was surreal. (How sad am I).
I created a look on Friday night with this palette and no I didn’t go out because I’m a loner who sits in her room, doing makeup, takes pictures and then wipes it off. No. Seriously this was a one off I just knew I wasn’t going out at the weekend so wouldn’t have been able to show everyone the beauty of this palette. First of all, I’d like to say not only are these colours amazingly pigmented, they are such good quality. They are very true to their colour. My only fault with this palette is the Fudge colour, which unfortunately appears very rich and chocolate-y, but upon application is dull, black and muddy. Every single other colour is so beautiful though which I found in this look.
Surprisingly, these pigmented shades so in this case Electric, Cube and Adorn did not work well with the MAC Fix+. I talked about this product in my latest blog post, discussing how excellently it emphasises the pigmentation in eyeshadow. Many eye shadows when lacking shimmer and pigmentation require the Fix+ to give it that little boost. These bad boys however… NO. I couldn’t believe it. The vibrance, the fluffiness. Everything about this product from the packaging down to the little fluffy brush provided is just exquisite.
So, this blog post was short and sweet. I wanted to show you all the final look I created from this palette, which is also the look I created from my time-lapsed video on my Instagram. Full product break down of this look was in fact my previous blog post. It’s quite a long one so make sure you have a brew in hand when reading. Anyway, the colours used in my look were Dawn on the crease, Fudge as the darker shade on the crease and then Electric on the lid, topped with Cube and Cube also in the corner.
