Happy New Year!
I thought I’d start the new blogging year with a rave about my new favourite palette.
13 year old me would have been ashamed to wear any eyeshadow that wasn’t the most pigmented, glittery, shimmery blue thing she could find.
We’ve all been there, and back in the day we weren’t lucky enough to have youtube and tutorials to tell us that wearing sparkly blue pigment all over your eyes and under neath was a B A D idea!
Strangely, I’ve come full circle at the ripe old age of 21 and now I so rarely wear any shimmery eye shadows. So to hear that Urban Decay of all brands were being out an ALL MATTE palette, well, I was over joyed let me tell you.
Firstly, the packaging is so lovely and also really sturdy so it’s great for travelling. And the mirror inside is gigantic, so handy. It comes with a really good brush, one end that’s great for blending and the other end is quite short, dense and stubby so it is really God for applying colour underneath your eye.
The range of colours are beautiful. They’re all fairly warm toned, with a few browny/taupe colours for blending, some lilacy/purple grey colours and the standard black and dark grey but my fave by far is ‘extra bitter’ which is the rusty, red orange colour. I’m obsessed and I’ll probably hit pan before the month is out.
If you’re in the market for an all round, great Basics palette with creamy formulas and amazing staying power then I wouldn’t think twice about making a cheeky order. Treat yo’self (I’m such an enabler…)
