You know how much I love discovering new brands right? Well, here’s a goodie that’s recently landed at my favourite online cosmetics shop, CutECOsmetics. This range is a indie, small, handmade brand from America called LunatiCK Labs, in addition it’s also talc free, vegan and cruelty free, how awesome is that? But, wait until you see it in all its glory! This brand has previously been unavailable to buy in the UK so it’s great news for fans of quirky make up!
The whole range is inspired by old school horror films and aims to produce ethical, professional quality products, how cool is the palette?!
The inside of the palette features characters from old horror films and a bat shaped mirror and lots of other references to the horror genre, isn’t is awesome? It’s pretty damn special.
Inside each palette you get five shades of super soft, highly pigmented colours in shades inspired by the horror genre, this is the Zombie Defense palette and the shades here are called: Red Rum Red, Amberzombie & Ditch, BBRRAAIINNZZ, Gain Green, The End Is Near. I have the feeling that these shadows were originally formulated in a powder form as they are super soft and have a lot of fall out when you use them, they come with acrylic circles to cover each shadow and the idea is that you can use these to repress the shadows if it becomes a problem.
This palette has a great mixture of textures and useful shades. The purple and green are satin finish with a tiny bit of fine shimmer and I just love them together, the burgundy shade is gorgeous for a neutral look it’s the colour of dark bronze with a metallic finish. I don’t own many black eyeshadows so this one is a great addition, it’s highly pigmented and has a touch of silver and gold glitter and finally the blue is a deep royal blue with a matte finish. LOVE them.
As mentioned before the shadows are really soft and delicate, so you want to be careful when using this palette, the acrylic compressors that come with it aren’t proving very useful to me at the moment as they prevent the magnetic fastening of the palette from closing, so I’m not sure if I’ll keep them there, but it’s good that they have thought of some kind of solution for the fall out.
Here’s a look I created using this palette along with Sugarpill Poison Plum brows and Illamasqua Sangres lipstick, what do you think?
The palette is just £22.95 and available in the UK from CutECOsmetics right now along with individual shadows and intensely pigmented lipglosses in a bunch of weird colours.
