Em has already swatched these shadows, in case you’d like to see her take on them! I’ve previously reviewed their BOHO CHIC PALETTE (which I liked but didn’t love) and their TIMELESS BEAUTY PALETTE (I liked a few of the colors but wasn’t crazy about the rest). I gave them both decent reviews but I wasn’t singing their praises while I turned circles on a grassy hillside. So I’m excited to say that I fully recommend these shimmer shadows! I have them in a wicker basket and I’m frolicking through the meadow with a flock of sheep while singing showtunes! Metaphorically that is. They have the type of formula that I consider ‘foiled’. Dense, creamy texture, long wearing, you can apply with a brush or your fingers etc. I enjoy the formula and I adore the color selection! In this post we’ll be looking 6 of the pinky toned shadows and later on I’ll be doing a second article about the golds and other metal tones.
BUBBLE BATH is a pale peachy champagne, similar to MUG IN THE SPOTLIGHT
HOMECOMING QUEEN is light peachy pink.
LADYLIKE is a medium corally pink.
YOU JELLY? is a medium lavender pink. It reminds me a bit of ABH MACAROON
IT’S A GIRL is in between burgundy and magenta. It’s a really unique color. I don’t think I own anything else like it.
MARSALA is a deep burgundy
I honestly think that you need all 6 but if I had to narrow it down, I’d say MARSALA, IT’S A GIRL and U JELLY? are my must haves. But I really love LADYLIKE too. And HOMECOMING QUEEN and BUBBLE BATH. They’re all gorgeous and I’m a sucker for pinks and berry tones.
Part two coming soon!
