Flormar Week #3 : Flormar Eyes

Another day of #FLORMARWEEK and today I'm talking eye products (with some eyebrow products for good measure. Let talk numbers- 5 matte mono eyeshadows, 5 mono eyeshadows, 4 terracotta (baked) eyeshadows, 4 5pan eyeshadow palettes, 4 lines of mascara, 3 brow powders, brow pencils, liners, primers and mascara and 5 types of eyeliner. Not too shabby at all for a brand that's new to Ireland! I'm a bit dubious when it comes to inexpensive eyeshadows to be honest, I often find the pigmentation and payoff to be dismal, chalky mess. I have tried loads of different Flormar eye bits so keep reading for more info!

Eyeshadows

Flormar have a range of mono eyeshadows and eyeshadow palettes in a variety of neutral and popping colours. The colour range isn't the vastest- each line has either 4 or 5 variations- but there is enough there to appeal to neutral lovers and the colour poppers. There are testers at the stand so you can swatch the products to your heart's contentment before deciding what products to pick. The packaging of these, particularly the mono eyeshadows, is divine- sturdy matte black with windows and mirrors and huge pans of decent pigment. 
The Mono Eyeshadows come in five different shades and are only €3.45 each. The shade on the far left is a beautiful gold and I highly recommend this one! 
There are five Matte Mono Eye Shadows also- again only €3.45 which is seriously good value- I have that brown shade in the middle and it is crease colour perfection.

The terracotta eyeshadows are more pricey than the mono eyeshadows but you get three times as much product in these as you do in the others, and at €7.95, it's great value. There are four shades available and I love the ivory shade in the middle as a shadow, inner corner highlighter and highlighter for the tops of the cheeks. MUST HAVE.
There are four different 5 pan eyeshadow palettes - a grey/smokey one, a pink/burgundy one, a nude one and a blue one. I have the two palettes in the middle- I very much like the burgundy one- the shadow on the far right of that palette is perfection, I prefer it to MAC Cranberry. I also have the nudes palette which I don't love as much as the other one, I find that the shades are a bit too similar for my liking and it's missing a good dark crease shade. Still though, €9.95 a piece is a good deal!

Mascara

I am having a serious love affair with one particular Flormar mascara...
THIS MASCARA IS ONE OF MY FAVOURITE MASCARAS EVER. I bought the Volume Spiderlash mascara a few weeks back (one in the red packaging) and I have used little else since I got it. It reminds me so much of one of my other fave mascaras, the MakeUpForEver Smokey Lash mascara, only is one fifth of the price and a bit better if I am honest. The wand picks up every single lash, fans them out, provides length and curl- it is a phenomenal mascara and probably my favourite Flormar product to date! Just look at what one single coat does:

I've since gone back and purchased the regular Spider Lash mascara and I cannot wait to see how it compares to the volume version.
Another two mascaras that Flormar have brought to us- the Maxxl Mascara and the x10 Sculpting Mascara. Given my love affair with Spider Lash, it's only a matter of time before I try these!
And like the Revolution lipsticks, there is also a line of Revolution mascaras tucked into the very bottom right hand corner of the stands. 

Brow Products

Now I am not an eyebrow person at all so I can't tell you my personal experience of any of these brow products as I never fill in my brows. What I will do is show you what is available! I know Leonard Daly was a big fan of the eyebrow liner markers in the range and he knows his stuff so definitely keep an eye out on that.
Three eyebrow shadows in little compacts like the eyeshadows- all of them quite cool and ashy toned.
Eyebrow pencils in 2 shades, brow liners in 2 shades, an eyebrow primer and brow mascara.

Eyeliner

One notable omission from the Flormar line up is the lack of pencil eyeliners in my mind. I'm not sure if this is because my nearist stockist (Medipharm Pharmacy, Dundrum) doesn't stock them (as they don't have the lip liner pencils either) or whether there are none in the line-up, I have a sneaking suspicion that there may be so if you come across any in your local stockist, please let us know in the comments below. Enough of talking about what they don't have and on to talking about what they do...three different types of eyeliner including a liquid eyeliner (which is jet black, looks glossy when applied by shine fades as it dries down), a dipliner and gel eyeliner in two colours which come with little brushes for applying. 

Flormar Eyes

Overall, I think that Flormar eyes are very enticing. The single eyeshadows are great, and I have found a new absolute HOLY GRAIL mascara in the Spider Lash mascara that comes in the red tube- it is absolutely amazing, I love it more than a lot of other more expensive mascaras I have tried in recent months. In terms of value for money, I think Flormar is right up there, and even though the colour selection seems to be quite limited for now with a handful of colours available, I love the colours I have tried so far. The only eyeshadow product I wasn't blown away by yet was the eyeshadow palette in Nude Dudes- but as you can see from the pic and swatches above, it's not awful, it just doesn't tick every box for me. Overall, the quality of the eyeshadows are smooth and deliver on the pigmentation and they can last up to 12 hours on my eyelids without budging or creasing.

I would love to know what Flormar products you have tried or even what has caught your eye- are there any Flormar eye products are on your wishlist yet?

Flormar Week #2 - Flormar Face

For the second instalment of my Flormar Week series, I am going to tell you all about the face products that Flormar offer. From foundations to concealers, powders to primers and bronzers, there are numerous face products available in the Flormar line up. I have been reading a lot of favourable musings around their Perfect Coverage foundation so that was the top of my list to try, and their giant bronzers have featured quite prominently on social media also in recent times. In a nutshell, Flormar are bringing you three new foundations, a BB cream, a BB cream to powder compact, a variety of CC creams, 2 face powders, 2 types of concealer, 2 different primers and a bronzer. For a brand that has only just arrived in Ireland, that is quite an offering, I'm sure you will agree. Like yesterday's lips post, I'm going to show you what's available and give little speed reviews of the Flormar face products that I have tried over the last 10 weeks. 


FOUNDATIONS

I have to start with one of my favourite makeup items of them all- foundations. If you read my blog or follow me on Instagram, you will know that I really am all about that base. Flormar have brought six different foundation/base products to Irish shores- 5 traditional foundations and one BB Cream to Powder compact. We have: 
The Mat Velvet Foundation which promise to even out the skintone and mattify and retails for €7.95.
The Mat Touch Foundation which promises an antioxidant effect, contains Vitamin 5 and dries to a matte finish. This retails for €9.95.
My personal favourite- the Perfect Coverage Foundation which retails for €10.95 and promises to last on skin for 12 hours. For more details on this foundation, keep reading!
The BB Cream which promises to illuminate, protect against UV rays, moisturise and illuminate. This one will set you back €9.95.
CC Colour Correcting Cream to combat against dark circles, redness and fatigue and these are €11.95 a piece.

POWDERS

There are two powders to choose from, a loose powder and a compact pressed powder. Now, whilst I admit I am not really a gal for powder as I don't have terribly oily skin or like a very matte finish. I wasn't able to test out the colours of the Loose Powder because the testers were not opened (and I don't want to be THAT person) but from what I could tell, the shades looked pretty light and the powder was very finely milled. 

PRIMERS

There are 2 primers available, both illuminating. The Illuminating Primer Makeup Base has been a staple in my routine for a while now. Whilst I don't find it illuminating in the way that I would find Benefit High Beam illuminating, it feels nice on the skin (not siliconey) and my makeup sits nicely on top. The second primer, the Double Radiance Primer, is very much akin to a liquid highlighter. At €12.95, it is the most expensive Flormar product available and even though I have not purchased yet, I can definitely see myself picking this up in the near future. I think this would look amazing mixed with my foundation of choose for a radiant, sunkissed look.

CONCEALERS

In terms of concealers, there are two Flormar offerings- the Perfect Coverage Concealer which comes in a little wand and the Ultimate Concealer Palette which contains the colours you can see below. I haven't tried the palette and to be honest, it doesn't really appeal to me as I don't have major colour correction issues, but I will say that the Perfect Coverage Concealer wand is great. I couldn't really use it as a concealer for blemishes but I picked up the lightest shade and it's quite peachy so it works really well for brightening the undereye area.

BRONZER

One of my favourite Flormar products and one that I absolutely recommend is the Flormar Bronzing Powder. It comes in three shades- you can see the colours below- and at €9.95 for a pan the size of your actual head, this is the best value product EV-ER. I have the shade 02 and as you will see from the pictures below, it is the most perfect shade for warming up your face if you are pale skinned. The texture of this is amazing- so soft, so easy to pick up on your brush and dust across your face. Something I haven't touched on before is the smell of Flormar products- they are quite heavily scented but I have to say I love the smell, it reminds me of a face powder that my nana used to use and I get the warm feels when I smell this bronzer. To see what it looks like on, keep scrolling down below!

FLORMAR FACE

So now that I have given you a little insight of what is available, let me share some more of my thoughts on the various products with you. I've tried the Perfect Coverage Foundation a couple of times now and I have to say, I quite enjoyed it. It's a thick enough formula but it applies to the skin easily and provides great coverage. It's not really subtle on but I don't mind this because sometimes I like to go for the "dolled up" look. It does last the 12 hours but I did find I have to be careful not to brush my hand against my face as I felt that this would disturb my foundation a bit if you like. The foundation also offers SPF of 15 which is very much appreciated. I have the lightest shade 105 Porcelain Ivory and I have to bring it well down my neck to blend as I am too fair skinned naturally for it (and I am a MAC NW20 for your reference). The Illuminating Primer Makeup Base is a nice base, not illuminating in the glittery sense and provides a nice base for your foundation. The Perfect Coverage Concealer has been my go-to in the last few weeks for undereye concealing and it applies and blends beautifully and is great for neutralising those blue-ish bags under my eyes and of course, that beautiful Bronzing Powder is great to warm up the face.
You can see the level of coverage that the Perfect Coverage provides when you contrast the second picture with the first picture, where all I have on is the Illuminating Primer Makeup Base. In the third picture I added the Bronzing Powder to my face to warm it up a bit. In the final picture, I have applied the rest of my makeup, including the Perfect Coverage Concealer.
So- there you have my little summary of the Flormar face products available for purchase in Ireland now. Have you tried any of these yet? Is there anything that is jumping out at you as a must-try item?

Flormar Week #1 : Flormar Lips

Image result for flormar
So as I mentioned yesterday, this week is Flormar week on the blog, and I have made it my mission to inform and enlighten you all on the new Flormar products that are available in Ireland now. First up are lip products- lipsticks, lip glosses and lipliners. I love my lip products and they were one of the first things I gravitated towards when I first found myself at a Flormar stand. The quick overview is that there are two lipstick types- Revolution Lipstick (€6.95) and Long Wearing Lipstick (€5.95) - two lip glosses - the Long Wearing Lip Gloss (€5.95) and the Supershine Lip Gloss (€4.95)- and Waterproof Lipliners which I belive retail for €2.95 a piece but these are not available in my local stockist which is Medicare Pharmacy Dundrum. I've been a good sport and snapped some pics of the products for your perusal along with some sneaky swatches. So what exactly are Flormar bringing to market in the lips department?

REVOLUTION LIPSTICKS
LONG WEARING LIPSTICKS
LONG WEARING LIP GLOSS
 SUPERSHINE LIP GLOSS
My overall impression from the product lineup is that the colours are all very bright, very vivid and some of the lipglosses are really really glittery. I love lip products but have been favouring the more muted mauvey tones. Most all of the Flormar lip products are really bright or really punchy, and I'm not complaining about this at all because there is definitely a gap in the market for good quality, packed with pigmentation bright lipsticks. The purples are a key example of this- it's very difficult to get an excellent quality budget true purple lipstick but Flormar provide one that in the long wearing line that actually rivals MAC Violetta in my opinion for less than a third of the price. All of the products were very creamy and pigmented and literally it just took a swipe to deliver good colour payoff. If muted roses and mauves are your only lip thing, you might not be too enticed by the Flormar offerings. I actually think the lack of more daytime wearable or work appropriate lipsticks might be down to the fact that this brand is manufactured in Turkey and the Turkish women are more daring and better able to pull off these punchy colours. 
I have a few of the Revolution lipsticks- I was gifted two mad colours altogether that I am going to donate to my 16 year old sister but I do have one pretty tame colour and I've been wearing that for the last few days. It feels nice enough on the lips, isn't too sickenly fragranced that it makes me nauseous and lasted pretty well for about 3 hours before needing to be reapplied. The finish on both the lipsticks appeared to be a satin like finish, definitely not matt and not sheeny or balmy.

I'm not much of a lip gloss advocate to be honest, particularly anything with glitter because I feel like I am waaaay too old (I'm in my late 20s and my birthday is next week which is going to plunge me into an even later stage of my 20s- le sigh). I have tried out the Long Wearing Lip Gloss on my lips and it was quite pleasant even though it contained glitter, it was not gritty or thick or uncomfortable on the lips. They didn't smell too strongly and I applied a very thin coat of Backstage from the Long Wearing Lip Gloss line which is a glittery pink-purple and as you can see from the pic below, it wasn't too glittery or vibrant on the lips. The Supershine glosses did feel a bit stickier and were definitely more glittery- if you love a high shine, high impact super glossy lip, you need to swatch the Supershine line!
To my great disappointment, I haven't been able to try out the new lipliners yet because, as I mentioned, they are not available in my pharmacy, so I cannot enlighten you as to the colour range of those but I am making it my mission to get my hands on them so definitely watch this space or my social media sites for more deets on those.  I swatched a couple the night of the media launch a few months back and I have to say, I think these were the products that I was most excited about trying. It WILL happen.

Overall, whilst I do miss the more muted colours as I'm a divil for those work appropriate shades, I think the range of colours is impressive. I wish there were a few more subtle colours that were more complimentary to the typical fair Irish skintones but these might arrive with time as the brand builds presence in Ireland. If I was more adventurous with lip colours, I would probably be stone raving mad about the Flormar lip products. I am making it my mission to find those lipliners so if you find a stockist with the liners in south Dublin, please do let me know. Those lip products that I have tried have been nice and I don't have any complaints at all about anything I've used. 

Is there anything that is tickling your pickle in this lip line up or have you tried any Flormar lip products and if so, what did you think?

Flormar - welcome to Ireland and the start of Flormar Week!

There are few things that bring me as much joy as the thought of a brand new makeup brand launching in Ireland, and us Irish gals have certainly been spoiled in the last few years with additions of brands like Wet n Wild, NYX, Physician's Formula and Charlotte Tilbury to name a few- we've been faring well. Another new brand which has taken up residence in several pharmacies around Ireland is Flormar. Now before I get into the brand and tell you my plans to show you a truckload of Flormar products, I will give you a little history on the brand, the origins and the ethos. I take quite a holistic approach when familiarising myself with new brands- heck, that's about half the reason I love blogging so much. I've tried a fair amount of products over the last few months so I feel like I have a good enough grasp of the products to give you my recommendations.
A little bit about the brand by way of context - the brand was originally developed back in the 1970s in Milan, Italy but production later moved to Turkey. The brand was available in a few pharmacies and in A-wear stores a few years back but it looked quite different, a lot of shiny white packaging! The brand underwent a revamp back in 2012 when French cosmetics giant Yves Rocher invested in the brand, and the shiny white packaging was replaced by sleek, matte black packaging. The brand itself began by specialising in, and has since been built on, the success of its nail polishes- there are over 200 nail polishes available and they have added new lines to their nails range over the years. Flormar is the top selling nail polish brand in Turkey- and over 50% of Flormar's global sales come from Turkey. The brand pride themselves on their vast selection of colourful, fun products at purse friendly prices. Flormar Ireland are currently in the process of rolling out across Irish pharmacies- to keep up to date with their stockists, keep an eye on their Facebook page as this is updated regularly.

When you do get to your nearest stockist, you should find something like this:
Flormar have plenty of offerings across the line- numerous eyeshadows, foundations, nail polishes, brow products, etc. and what I have decided to do instead of creating one huge post is to have a series on the blog which I have imaginatively called 'Flormar Week'- each day for the next five days I will focus on one particular part of the face and tell you what goodies Flormar have in store for you. We'll do Flormar Face, Flormar Eyes, Flormar Nails, Flormar Lips and Flormar Cheeks over the course of the week, and the posts will be a mix of mini reviews of the products I have tried, pricing information, swatches and an exposé of what is available. My hope is that by the end of this week, you will know all that there is to know about Flormar Ireland. 

So if you are interested in learning about Flormar, keep your eyes out on the blog every day this week. Please feel free to engage during the week and share your thoughts- what you've tried, what you've loved or what you are looking forward to trying.

Catrice Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer - 010 and 020

One of the newest Catrice products that I have been most excited to try is the new Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealers. I'm a long time fan of the Camouflage Cream concealer pots and I really strongly hope that these are not being discontinued now that the liquid versions have been introduced. There are a pretty dismal 2 shades available only, and I picked up both. Both shades are very pale - 010 Porcellain is a very pale, neutral shade, whereas 020 Light Beige is also pale but more yellow. I love Catrice but the shade range across the concealers and foundations is very limited to various shades of pale. Whilst I am pretty pale (MAC NW20 for your reference), I would say that 010 is extremely pale, I prefer to use this for brightening instead of concealing blemishes. As the winter months draw in, this may change somewhat. 020 is a better shade for concealing blemishes in my mind- however, when patted with my ring finger, I found that this colour oxidised horrifically on my skin and looks really yellow, even when I applied foundation over the top of it.

Catrice promise a high coverage and ultra-longlasting concealer that perfectly camouflages undereye circles, spots and even tattoos. That is quite the promise! Now I cannot attest to the tattoo coverage claims, the high coverage and longevity of this concealer are noteworthy in my opinion. This is easy enough to apply but when it dries, it absolutely sets down and DOES NOT BUDGE. For that reason, I recommend working quickly with this and pat or blend it as soon as you apply it instead of leaving it dry. The consistency of the Liquid Camouflage concealer is very creamy but quite thick but can be warmed and loosened a little by patting it with your finger. They are also very buildable should you find that one layer doesn't give you enough coverage. Also this could quite an effective undereye concealer, but definitely keep it away from any fine lines. Catrice also claim that this is waterproof and even though I have not submerged my head in water to test this claim, I have gotten caught in those sporadic rain showers and sweated in this blistering heat (sorry for the mental imagery) and concealer has stayed in tact. It actually really lasts.
Now- back to the colour point- as is the case with so many brands, there is no consistency between the shades across different foundations or concealers in the same brand. In the picture above, I compared four concealers - having picked up the lightest shade in the first three (Camouflage Cream 010 Ivory, Velvet Finish Concealer 010 Velvet Ivory and Liquid Camouflage Concealer in 010 Porcellain) and you can see the differ in terms of shade and tone. I also compared the second Liquid Camouflage Concealer in 020 Light Beige on the right so you can see how dark it is in comparison to the others.

I believe these cost €3.79 a piece and you get a very respectable 5ml of product in each. The packaging is sleek and sturdy- I really rate Catrice packaging- I find it's almost always simplistic and chic looking. There is a doe foot applicator to apply the product with. I quite like these- I do think they are very full coverage and I will probably use them up. I can't compare these to any other concealers on the market as I don't think there is anything else quite like these. I've heard another blogger compare these to the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer- but to be honest, I think they are quite different. In my opinion, the coverage of the Urban Decay one was a fraction less than the Catrice offering, probably because the actually formula/texture of the cream was a little lighter. They would be more like first cousins than sisters, but definitely share a gene pool somewhere along the line. I can see how people would think this is too thick, too dry, and I can also see how people will think this is the best thing since that auld sliced pan we all know and love. I straddle both camps- it's not my favourite concealer ever but I respect that it is might and, even with the little price tag, if you can get a colour to suit you, I think you would be hard pushed to find a concealer that performs as well as this one does.

Have you tried out this concealer yet or is it on your wishlist?

Max Factor Miracle Match Foundation

 You might recall that I wrote a post about 18 months ago professing my undying love for the Max Factor Facefinity All Day Flawless Foundation - I definitely hold that foundation out as one of my favourite foundations ever, never mind a highstreet foundation. Therefore, when I spied a new Max Factor foundation in very similar packaging, I didn't hesitate in making it mine. The new Miracle Match foundation is Max Factor's new hydrating, gel like foundation that promises to "blur and nourish". I picked up the lightest shade called 'Light Ivory' and I think there are about nine shades available in Ireland but that said, I popped into a smaller Boots during the week and there were only six shades available. I think it's about the €15/16 mark which is pricier than most other foundations in Boots but don't let the price deter you. I have tried a lot of foundations in recent weeks and this one blew them all out of the water. I've been very much looking forward to telling you all about this actually! 

 This foundation feels like a serum or gel when you apply it and immediately evens out skintone and minimises the appearance of pores. It takes a minute or two after applying for the foundation to set down- in fact, I hate this foundation on my skin for first 30 seconds as I feel like it doesn't look like it's blended or buffed properly despite my best efforts but I have come to realise that it takes a minute to dry down on your skin. Now don't be alarmed by this- it's not that the foundation looks matte or powdery, it's quite the opposite really- when you leave this foundation sit on your skin after buffing for just a minute, I find that it just completely evens out, blurs all pores and looks flawless. It feels a little sticky when you first apply it but after giving it that extra minute to set on your face, the stickiness evaporates and other makeup and powders etc. apply easily over it. The finish is quite radiant- dewy but not shiny, brightening and full coverage without looking cakey. I feel that this leaves quite a natural skin finish. This foundation is packed with vitamins B and E and contains high levels of water (1st on ingredients list) and glycerin (3rd on ingredients list) to moisturise and treat the skin. One thing that I am not struck on in this foundation is the smell- it's quite bizarre, like toffee / biscuits - it's not really sweet, it's not that pungent fake tan smell - but I find it quite nauseating and thankfully it completely subsides very quickly after application. 


You can get an idea of the level of coverage - the foundation instantly evens out the skintone and has quite a radiant finish. I applied the foundation with a flat top kabuki.
Makeup applies perfectly and evenly over the top of foundation once it sets down.

After 14 hours of wear- very minimal fading around nose area, pores still in tact. Ever so slightly more shiny but held up remarkably well considering I didn't powder or apply primer underneath. 
As I mentioned, I picked up the shade Light Ivory which is the lightest shade available here- however, it appeared to be a little too light for me currently (must have somehow caught some sunrays over the summer) and I've compared it below to the Light Ivory shade in Max Factor's Facefinity line. The Miracle Match is a smidge paler than Facefinity. Both foundations perform similarly in terms of coverage and despite the fact that the Facefinity is a 3in1 primer/concealer/foundation hybrid, they also perform similarly in terms of longevity. 
Overall, my verdict is that this is a very fine foundation indeed and I've been enjoying using it the way I've enjoyed using Facefinity. I definitely rate this one alot more than the new MAC Studio Waterweight foundation which I reviewed recently and it held up on my skin a heck of a lot better. I think this will be perfect for some faux radiance in the winter time and this will be in rotation over the coming months. 

Have you tried this foundation yet or is it on your radar?

Makeup Geek Haul #2 - eyeshadows and foiled eyeshadows - swatches

A few weeks back, a friend of mine offered to be my makeup mule and carry some makeup home from the US for me, so I seized the opportunity to order some more Makeup Geek eyeshadows given my fabulous relationship with the Starter Kit (full review and swatches of the Starter Kit available here).  I ordered 15 shadows in total- 10 from the regular line and 5 from the new Foiled Eyeshadow line. The regular eyeshadows are $5.99 a piece and the Foiled Eyeshadows are $9.99 a piece and when I ordered from US to be delivered to US, I did not have to pay any customs charges. You probably know by now that Makeup Geek orders almost always attract customs charges- I don't know how many times I've heard of people getting caught out when ordering from this website in particular. That's not the fault of the company at all, but it's just worth bearing in mind when making your order. Keep your orders small (under €30/40) to avoid having to fork out any more cash to the postman (I stand to be corrected but I think it's a €7 admin fee plus 20% of the cost of the goods and postage and packaging) so if you order €50 worth of products, you would face a potential customs charge of €17! So I indebted to my friend Sinead for kindly bringing these home in one piece to me!

Foiled Eyeshadows

The Foiled Eyeshadows are amongst the newest additions to the Makeup Geek line, but as I already mentioned, given that they cost $9.99 a piece, I didn't place an order earlier as I would have only been able to order 3 without incurring any of those bugging customs charges. I've seen loads of hype on Youtube about these- I have to say, I love the look of the neutral ones but the pastel metallic shades didn't appeal to me at all. I've tried a few of these and I've mixed feelings so far but I'm taking my time to really put these through their paces before officially reporting back so keep an eye out. 

Eyeshadows


I also took the opportunities to pick up some new regular line eyeshadows. I am blown away by the pigmentation and lasting power of my other Makeup Geek eyeshadows so I picked up some more neutral shades that I know I will get so much use out of. These have all been on my shopping list for quite a while now already so I finally succumbed! I've been using all of these over the last 10 odd days and, I don't say this lightly, it is love. These are fantastic shadows. 

I also picked up a new Z palette from Beauty Bay to house my lovely new shadows in and I have space for 12 more shadows so expect another few orders in the coming weeks. Either way, I hope the swatches above give you a taste of the colours available in case you too are inspired to make a purchase in the not too distant future!
