I was pretty darn excited when BuyaPowa told me this was the next cosmetic co-buy and even more so when I received one in the post on Tuesday. Over the last few days I've tested it (you can expect some tutorials very soon) and I think I'm in a position to review. First up...
Wow! Reminiscent of the Urban Decay BOS III (NY) palette but not just eyeshadows. The lights are more like the model mirror so many bloggers have raved about and in this handy compact palette the light up mirror is actually useable rather than just a cute gimmick. It's substantial enough that it feels secure in your bag and yet small enough that it will fit in even your evening clutch for a night out.
There are four to choose from in this palette, hopefully they show up well enough for you to make them out from the swatches below. Pin Up and Peep Show are more highlight shades, they would make very sheer lid colours. It's a shame because I really love Peep Show, I'm hoping it will be a bolder colour with a primer underneath. Full Frontal and Lucky Charms are really impressive for pigmentation. Full Frontal is a warm almost aubergine/brown and Lucky Charms is a vibrant green like nothing else I have.. always nice to add something new! Overall I think they're great quality shadows I just wish the paler ones had a touch more pay-off.
First I have to mention Sun Bunny. This is uber-popular as a single product so I was really pleased to get to try it. One side (right) is matte and the other (left) has a sheeny finish. It gives a really beautiful natural golden glow. The Blush, Papa Don't Peach (love the name) is a lovely compliment to Sun Bunny. Again it has a kind of sheen to it, it's not quite shimmer just a dewy effect on the skin.
I really liked both of these and that they go so well together.
In this set you get a lipstick and a lipgloss. Free Love is a barely there pinky nude shade, it's always difficult to get a good swatch from a lip palette. It seemed quite sheer when I applied it but I'm not sure if it would be quite so sheer from a tube. None the less it was a nice shade once on the lips. The gloss didn't give much colour at all. What looked like a garish bright pink in the palette turned out to be just a bit of sparkle. The two were nice worn together but lip palettes are notoriously difficult to get right. It's a nice addition to the overall package.
