Recent Eyeshadow Haul

 So umm hey, remember me?

I've been meaning to blog for months, but didn't know where to start.  I'd tell myself I'd blog a week or two after purchasing an item so I could review properly, but then would sort of forget. Or would just not use the product frequently enough to talk about it.
But tonight I forget bugger it, I'll just post some swatches to contribute something :D

 So I thought tonight I'd start with some eyeshadows that I bought quite recently, say 3weeks ago.

The two top ones are L'oreal color infallible in 016 Coconut Shake (the light beigey one) and 012 Endless Chocolat. 
I was drawn to these eyeshadows because I'd read in a magazine that they were a powder/cream shadow. 
So when I went to try them in Superdrug I was expecting a creamy shadow, but when I touched them they were powder, but a creamy, velvety sort of texture powder. However they are nice and light and pretty pigmented. They apparently last upto 24hours to, but I usually don't wear makeup for that long to test whether that's the case or not :p
The only thing I'm a bit picky about is the packaging. When you open it there's a little lid on the eyeshadow, I know it's to keep it save and stop it from shattering however when I'm in a rush it's a bit fiddly.
I'm being a diva now.
They're not bad for the price either at £6.99

The Max Factor shadow is Max Effect in 04 Golden Bronze. At the time when I bought this I thought it was more copper toned (damn those deceiving shop lights), but it is a lovely colour (see swatches below) and it's lovely and smooth, glides on like a dream and was cheap too at £4.99. Bargain!! It really makes my Blue/green eyes pop when I wear it :)


 Anyway I really appologise for my long pause on this blog, but I will try to keep up and also the whole thing needs updating as it is looking disorganised.

Hope to speak to you all soon.
Take care. Christina XxX

  1. oh the L'oreal ones look really pigmented and pretty. Ive looked at them quickly a few time in boots but never had the time to swatch them, They look really pretty. Might have to pop in and have another wee look!
