If you haven’t already seen these beauties from Marks and Spencer Limited Collection in the giveaway that I posted on Monday, I’m pleased to be able to share with you a little review of one of the other pieces from the collection. What’s more this beauty is currently on 3 for 2 and only £8.50 to boot! Magic or what?
So this little capsule collection is a collaboration with beautiful illustrator, Holly Shape who’s work features on the packaging and within the product of each piece. Her art is elegant, sketchy and colourful. I love her free style of drawing and have been thoroughly been enjoying browsing her portfolio online. Today, I’m reviewing the eye palette from the collection, which is in this lovely, handbag friendly sized compact
You get four shades merged into one palette, so be careful not to smudge and merge and make a terrible mess. The colours are soft pastel shades that will suit all sorts of complexions and ideal for everyday wear. You also get a nice big mirror, making this a gorgeous and useful addition to your bag.
Here’s the swatches of the colours. The pale pink barely shows, but is a great simple base for other colours, something I would use to create an even base to apply other shades to. The duck egg green colour is lovely too and I will be using this to add a soft pop of colour to the crease and under the eye, I’ll blog when I’ve created some looks. You then get a warmer pink/lilac which I reckon is a slightly more challenging pastel to wear but again could be used to define the crease or as liner. The final shade is a mossy green, which I’m tempted to mix with bronze for an alternative take on the smoky eye.
The shades aren’t super pigmented, but their pastel colour means that it works and for only £8.50 for four colours you can’t really complain. It’s a lovely addition to any make up collection or a gift.
What do you think of the Holly Sharpe for Limited Collection range?
How would you wear these shades?
