I wanted to pick one (or two) items from each brand just to get a taste.
Heaven on Earth- Eyeshadow palette.
This is a handy palette that costs only £4. It has 12 neutral colours (creams, browns, peaches, golds).
It's ok. The quality is ok but now wow. This is ideal if you are on a budget.
I purchased the red eyeshadow palette (sold separately for £4). And then I chose 2 regular eyeshadows (Lilac Dream Shade 31 and Embellished shade 35), a baked eyeshadow (Golden Dragon Shade 2) and a blush (Juicy Apricot Shade 6). The eyeshadows are sold separately too. They come in their own packaging but you just pop them out and you can put them in the pan.
I'm impressed! The quality is very good and the pigmentation is very very good! I will definitely get more (if I decide to go to Oxford St again in 6 months from today).
I was impressed with the range. All the eyeshadows looked lovely. Huge but lovely.
the lipsticks looked nice as well and the nail polishes looked interesting.
However, being a cheek product junkie I went for the blushes and I got two!
I got Flirt which is a lovely apricot/salmon shade with lots of gold flecks. I wish the gold side of it would be just a sheen but no, it's glitter and there is a lot of it!
I managed to get a technique whereby I just tap tap and tap the brush to make sure the gold glitter falls (as it's supposed to be heavier than the pigment). It seems to work but you will get a bit of glitter anyway.
For some reason (not sure why) I also went for Flush which is a sheer peachy. It looks as if this one has glitter too but this type of glitter blends into being a sheen.
This colour does not translate as a blush on my skin but it's more of a highlight. On occasions I put Flirt and Flush on top.
The blushes were about £7 each.
I'm happy with them.
