Accessorize your Lovely Day

The range of cosmetics launched by Accessorize was one of the very first things I ever wrote about, excited by the foray into makeup by one of my favourite accessories brands. The packaging was very girlie (butterflies and sparkles all over the place) and maybe not so in keeping with the ladies that actually shop in the store, so they’ve recently re-launched the majority of the products to bring it more ‘up to standard’. This eyeshadow palette is part of the collection and contains 32 different colours all in this cute little package – it may be leopard print and rosy, but who doesn’t need a little bit of tacky extravagance in their makeup collection?

The colours in the tray are all fairly neutral and form the basis of a comprehensive eyeshadow wardrobe. You have base colour nudes, bronzed browns, smokey greys and a few emerald greens, khakis and bold blues to finish the range off. There’s a combination of matte and metallic colours, providing you with lots of different textures to play with. This is very much a ‘basics’ palette, perfect for people wanting to try something a bit different, experiment or even just keeping their eyeshadows all in one place – this is absolutely perfect for traveling or even keeping in your drawer at work for post-work spruce ups.

The texture of the eyeshadows is soft and malleable, the colour blending and moving around the eyelid well. You can really build up colour, as well as using more depth around the waterline to create a stronger look, although after a few hours there can be some bleeding or smudging on the upper eyelid. Providing a rich colour result and strong pigment, this is a complete bargain for the £8.95 price. There aren’t many 32-eyeshadow palettes available for under a tenner that would be worth buying, but this is definitely one of them.

Available in Superdrug and online priced £8.95

    I really need to start experimenting with different make up brands, especially when the packaging is lush like that! x
