This palette looks nothing like something I’d usually pick up, but that’s exactly why I got it! I wanted something completely different to play with, so when I saw this in the TAMBeauty sale for just £1, I knew I had to get it.
When fullprice, this palete is only £4 for 12 shades, 8 of which are matte and 4 of which are shimmers. Neons are difficult to formulate and I was pleased with the pigment overall, but the purple was quite patchy and difficult to get colour from. The black is surprisingly pigmented! There are some wearable shades that would go well with different looks, like the gun-metal grey shimmer.
As you can probably see, the yellow, purple and pink were difficult to get much pigment from, but the others were great. I used the dark pink in my Valentine’s Day MOTD and it worked so well! I’m really excited to use the grey shimmer and black in a smokey eye. I wanted to create a really 80s inspired look from this palette and I think it went pretty well! See below for the look and for how I did it!
First I used the neon yellow in my inner corner and blended it into the orange in the centre of my lid and below my eye. Then I blended the orange into neon pink on the outer corner. I blended the darker pink into the crease and completed the look with the lighter blue on my waterline, which I applied with a wet brush.
The colours were nicely pigmented and blended really well!
Hope you enjoyed today’s review – I thought it was about time I did something completely new and out of my comfort zone. I actually LOVED doing this and it’s made me want to experiment even more with eyeshadow!
