It’s been a while since I wrote a review about a single eyeshadow, so it was about time. Because Nabla does some amazing eyeshadow and I already reviewed the shade Selfish. That is a stunning purple duochrome, but when I spotted this, I knew I had to have it. Let’s have a closer look at the single shadow in Alchemy.
The tide is turning! The warm toned eyeshadow palette is slowly being phased out and that means that brands are creating a new makeup trend. And that new trend is: purple eyeshadow palettes. I am loving it! Whether it is using purple for a pop of color or creating a full blown purple makeup look: I am loving a bit of purple in my eye makeup. I think it suits me and that is why I am super excited about this new trend. In today’s video I have gathered 5 palettes from my collection and talk you through each one and what I think of them.

I haven’t had much luck trying super affordable eyeshadow primers. I have used some, one even by Catrice, and none of them did the trick for me. The most successful eyeshadow primer I’ve tried at the most affordable price point is the Milani eyeshadow primer. But now there is a new contender. Catrice have released a new eyeshadow primer for their fall/ winter 2018 collection. Is it any good?

Purple eyeshadow is EVERYWHERE at the moment. If there is a new trending color in the land of makeup it is purple. From high end to budget brands: they are all putting out purple palettes. And I am not mad about that. In fact, I love it as I love a good purple eyeshadow. So much so, that I am giving away a purple palette to celebrate 8 years of blogging and reaching 1000 subs on Youtube. And it is not just any purple palette I am giving away: it is the I Heart Revolution Violet eyeshadow palette.

Remember how I have been saying that 2018 would be the year that I would start wearing more colorful eyeshadow? Meet the first palette I got to try and fulfill that challenge. This is the PUR My Little Pony palette and it features a great blend between neutrals and colorful shades to create cohesive, wearable looks that work well for everyday, yet are still colorful.

So we are nearing the end of August palette month and I thought we’d go out with a bang. I still have one more review for you tomorrow, but I figured it would be best to make the last video of this month my full eyeshadow palette collection video. I already did posts on my several parts of my eyeshadow palette collection, as there were a few brands that I wanted to spend some more time on and I didn’t want to make this video too long. I hope you enjoy!

Beauty UK is a brand I know absolutely nothing about. From what I can gather it is a UK drugstore brand. I remember seeing it in Superdrug or Boots years ago, but haven’t seen it in a while. They do still have an official website though and I have a palette by them that I would like to review for you today. Let me introduce you to the Posh palette in Galaxy.
