New in eyeshadows

Eyeshadow is life. 
No I don’t need another palette.
I live for glitter.

Ok so introduction’s done, let’s talk all eyeshadow one may need from cheap & cheerful to high end, there’s something here for everyone. If you fancy knowing what I’m digging these days, you know what to do 👇🏻
Quality on budget

Revolution Re-Loaded Velvet Rose

Revolution Re-Loaded Velvet Rose has gotten my attention the moment it landed so finally I’ve stopped by the local Superdrug (thanks baes at Corporation St, Birmingham!) and got it. At £4 you will not find better quality, just look at the swatches. Stunning warmish taupes, purples, cooler burgundies and browns will take you easily from day to night and when applied over a primer, there’s no need for a touch up for up to 14 hrs! It’s crazy! They blend easily and finally Revolution got their mattes rights, they are buttery and pigmented and most importantly - matte! Few shimmers thrown in for a good measure are gorgeous applied by finger or a wet brush. It’s my autumn makeup sorted right there! Get yours at Superdrug or Revolution now (RPR £4.00)

Quality at premium price

I wasn’t sure if I should even talk about Charlotte Tilbury Exagger-eyes (sold out RPR £39.00) and Transform-eyes (sold out RPR £39.00) now. I got them a while ago but being limited edition I feel it’s like poking a bear (you) by saying how amazing I find them. Separately they’re ok, together they form a perfect cool to warm palette. As with all Charlotte T’s eyeshadows they are pigmentated but at the level that you’ll never have trouble blending. I now apply them directly on a primer (no setting!) to get the best out of the shades and they still blend like a dream. I’ll just leave you here with swatches just because ... If they ever come back in stock, grab them before they go! 

Glitter made simple

Hourglass Scattered Light Glitter Eyeshadow in Smoke

Now for the newest addition to my shimmery glitter stash. The Hourglass Scattered Light Glitter Eyeshadow in Smoke delivers the most easy and wearable everyday glitter that will not smuge, fall out or dissapear after few hours. I just take a little on my finger and smudge it all over my lids for the easiest look that stays put. That’s right, it does not gather in my good, it’s the most long lasting cream-like eyeshadow formula I know. You can build it up to a really gorgeous out there look or leave it blended out. The shade is gorgeous, metallic and not too warm. It tops up any daytime (and evening!) smokey eye in a way I never knew possible. Can’t really compare it to Stila or Pixi as they’re liquid, but Hourglass took a stand and came up with something new no one quite got right before. Now I need them all. Get yours at Cult Beauty or Space NK (RPR £26.00)
