When I first laid eyes upon this palette, it was love at first sight and I couldn’t wait to try it out. Fast forward a month an after having tried it a few times, I can now tell you what I really think!
I definitely have a thing for blue and silver eye shadows (which explains my initial attraction to the palette), but complete with a subtle white powder and matte black shade, this made for the absolute perfect combination. However, after swatching the blue just isn’t as fabulous as it appears in the pan. I was expecting it to be a lot brighter and more intense and pigmented, but I had to instead layer up the product to get the above swatch on my arm.
The silver shade is stunning – it reminds me of a mermaids tail (not that I’ve actually ever seen one) but the powder itself is a little chunky with all the glitter it contains; it does however make for a gorgeous bit of glamour and sparkle. The black and white are great – both pigmented and soft to apply.
I used the palette to create the above look. First I applied the white shadow all over my eye, up to the brow bone. I then used the black and silver in the crease of my eye, to create an almost grungy look. I also smudged the blue shade underneath my lash line for a twist on a smokey eye. Finally I used liquid liner to create a flick on my top lash line and went over it with the black shadow, finishing with mascara!
This palette retails at £25, which is pricey for four eye shadows in my opinion, but the colour selection is too gorgeous to resist. ckone cosmetics retail in Debenhams stores!
