Palette 8 – Ever Matte

Shades Included: (first four top row, bottom four bottom row)
Potato Cake – Matte finish light cream
Smudge – Brown taupe with a soft matte finish
True Taupe – Cool brown with a matte finish
Mocha – Matte finish mauve
Nude – Matte finish fair peachy pink
Matte Tan – Warm neutral medium brown
Sesame – Matte finish peachy brown
Jet Black – True matte black

Each one of these beautiful eye shadows has a silky yet matte finish and glides effortlessly onto the eyelid. The colours are truly beautiful and very warming especially in the Winter months.  My favourite shade for a base is Nude, Mocha to contour as it’s a really warm plum brown, and Potato Cake to highlight. Jet black is a brilliant black to outline the edge of your eyes to create shade.


Cream Cheek Blush

Lightly smooth Cheek Crème over the apples of the cheeks for defined cheekbones with a healthy glow.

For those who like their rouge to make a statement, intensify your look by layering Cheek Crème. It’s a really smooth formula which glides onto skin easily, a perfect on the go pick me up for the cheeks! This shade is in Sweet Cream, a really pretty silky pink shade.


Cake Eyeliner and Liquid Liner Brush #010

This richly pigmented, traditional formula cake eyeliner provides intense, smudge-proof results. The black colour is great to create a dramatic statement eye, one of my favourite products to use to add some drama to my eye look! The brush creates an easy application and the formula is really smooth, making it easy to apply your liner! A great product!


Shimmer Dust-Shimmer Steel

Luxurious loose powder pigment, which dusts lightly over eyes, face and body.  Highly pigmented and super silky soft. The product above is in shade Shimmer Steel which is a glorious silver shade which looks beautiful dusted over cheekbones to add some shimmer to the face, or over an matte eyeshadow to add some sparkle! A really beautiful product.


Endless Summer Bronzer – Warm Tan

Micro-fine, triple-milled, bronzing particles combine together during application to achieve a perfectly bronzed glow.  Endless Summer is a true brown-based bronzer, containing a subtle sheen to create or to enhance the look of healthy, glowing, tanned skin. Your skin is left beautifully bronzed, with a subtle sheen.

The shade above is Warm Tan, the darkest of the bronzers. It’s a matte formula and perfect for contouring which is why I opted for the darkest shade.


Sheer Brilliance Liquid Foundation

Liquid Face and Body Shimmer

Sheer Brilliant Liquid foundation is a  velvety soft foundation, which provides a beautiful, sheer coverage for a natural look. This lightweight, liquid foundation glides over the skin, minimising the appearance of imperfections and leaving skin feeling soft, fresh and radiant. Contains Vitamins A and E to soothe and condition the skin. Light to medium coverage.

As I don’t like to use heavy duty foundations this choice is perfect for me, it’s very light-weight and it doesn’t feel like you’re wearing makeup on your face which is perfect. I love the light formula and soft silky finish, it’s a really beautiful product.

The Liquid Face and Body Shimmer is great combined if you’re going out in the evening to add a bit of a shimmer to the cheekbone, and also apply on the body, I would say the shoulders, and collarbones! It really is a beautiful highlight.

My Colour – Bronze brown, pearl finish

Nevada – Desert brown, matte, cream finish

Dusk – Dusty pink, matte finish

Vixen -Deep Plum, cream finish

All of these shades are beautiful. For a daytime look my favourites are Dusk and My Colour, for an evening Nevada and Vixen. Vixen would be a great choice for Halloween as it’s a perfect plum shade and works really well teamed with a warm smokey brown or plum eye!

In general I’m incredibly impressed by the collection from Gorgeous Cosmetics, a pleasure to use!
