Moving on to the palettes’… I picked up ‘The Golden Goddess’ luxury palette and ‘The Dolce Vita’ luxury palette. They both retail at £38. The idea behind these quads is to suit certain eye colours. And to “Prime, enhance, smoke and pop.” the eye with three powdered eyeshadows and a pressed-glitter.
The Golden Goddess palette looks beautiful. This palette is actually meant for blue eyes, but despite that I think it looks lovely with brown eyes and/or ginger hair.
I love the look of every single shade but I have to admit, it’s not the best formulation. I find that these don’t last as well as say… my Naked 2 palette. And as much as I want to love the glittery ‘Pop’ shade, it just wasn’t strong enough, and I also found that I got a lot of fall-out through-out the day.
Likewise to the above palette, the formulation was the same with the ‘Dolce Vita’ palette. Again the shades are absolutely beautiful, and as much as I want to love it, the formulation is pants. So, I’m sad to report that I’m a little disappointed with these.
On the other hand, I picked up two Colour Chameleon’s and I LOVE them! I got ‘Dark Pearl’ for brown eyes, day time and ‘Amber Haze’ for brown eyes, night. If you have never heard of these before, they are super easy to apply cream eye-shadow sticks.
Apparently these are infused with ‘Synthetic Sapphire’, “a mineral gemstone with natural soft-focus powers, for a smooth perfect finish.” Sounds fancy.
Dark Pearl is a lovely taupe-coppery brown with hints of purple. It is said to be suitable for brown eyes during the day… but, I would wear this for night-time too.
This shade is really creamy, highly pigmented, long-lasting and easy to use. Ticks all the right boxes!
Amber Haze is an antique-coloured shade. It looks quite rustic. And, likewise to Dark Pearl, Amber Haze is incredibly pigmented, lasts for 10+ hours and is super easy to apply. You can either wear this alone or blend with other shades. Looks beautiful on brown eyes!
So that’s all folks. I hope you found this somewhat helpful or interesting to read! Have a fabulous week.
