I chose to make a palette of green shades. The shades I chose were meadows, envy, fresh air and woodland.
- Meadows is the lightest green shade. It’s a highly shimmery mint green shade, perfect for a green highlight.
- Envy is the darker of the mint shades. It has the same intense shine.
- Fresh Air is a forest green colour. It’s slightly duo tone.
- Woodland is a very dark English green. This is very duo tone. There’s a nice dark green base and an intense forest green shimmer on the top. Its a fantastic shade.
These shades are all highly pigmented. They’re incredibly blendable. I can’t praise these shadow highly enough. For the price they’re amazing.
I do have slight issues with creasing on these sadly. That’s even with an eyeshadow base. However it takes a good 8 hours before that happens, so perfectly good for a work day or even a night out. If you’ve got dry lids or even normal lids you’ll probably find these perfect.
I like these, I like these a lot. I love that you can make your own palette. I love that they’re so pigmented for the price. Very much worth it.
