Next Beauty eyeshadow palettes
The perfect look eye palette has a great array of colours, from pearlescent and shimmers to matte shades. My favourite shade is obvious, the rose gold one (third one in). Some of the shades have great colour pay off, but I just don’t know when I would wear them, especially the purple and the aqua blue colour.
As you can see from the above picture, the eyeshadows are very blendable but do provide quite a lot of fall out. To avoid being a shimmery mess, I’d advise you do your eye makeup before anything else. The formula is quite soft but some do feel a little chalky. I also really don’t like the brush that comes with it, I find it useless and prefer to use my own brushes in order to get a good colour payoff.
The baked eyeshadows have ok colour pay off. Although these colours really don’t suit my complexion, I really like the silver shade and the blue/grey shade next to it (the top two). Again, these are blendable and don’t provide as much fall out as the other palette. They can also be applied wet or dry, which is an added bonus. You get a lot of product and this quad is only £7.50, bargain!
Perfect Cheeks Bronzer
This bronzer reminds me of the Bobbi Brown shimmer brick. The perfect cheeks bronzer has quite a lot of shimmer in it but the soft coral and pink tones are beautiful. Use this product sparingly as it has great colour pay off. I would also use this as seperate eyeshadows too. The stripes of pigment can be used separately or swirl your blusher brush around to get a subtle coral shimmer. This is my favourite product of the range!
This white jasmine scented candle fills the room, it also has musk and honeysuckle which gives it a sensual undertone. Next do an amazing range of candles for really great prices! The one in the above picture is only £4 and totally underrated. I also like their Milan scented candle, you should certainly check them out if you’re a candle hoarder like me.
Matte lip colour and sheer chubby stick
First of all, the sheer chubby stick is anything but sheer. It has really good colour payoff and is a lovely cherry red colour. It feels pretty hydrating too, but if you’re looking for something that doesn’t have a lot of pigment, then this colour isn’t for you. I really want to try their nude chubby sticks, they look lovely.
The classic red lipstick has a very creamy formula and has good staying power. I would say it lasted a good couple of hours before it needed a top up. It’s not a true matte though, it’s a lot more moisturising and more of a demi matte.
