In my last post I talked about how I had always been the kinda girl who strayed away from palette’s…until recently that is. To accompany my new Avon eyebrow kit, I noticed on Twitter that Illamasqua were having a 60/70% sale, so I headed over to the site to check it out.
It’s here where I discovered the Multi Facet palette in Aura was on sale from £40-0dd quid down to a bargainous £13,including free delivery. Before I could hesitate, it was in the basket and on it’s way.
Previously I’d only used Illamsqua nail varnishes so I thought why not give the rest of the range a go! It’s a great compact size and contains everything you need to complete your face before you head out the door.
There is highlighter cream pigment in Aurora. It’s a really natural shadow, which adds a little bit of depth and detail to your cheekbones. Alongside this, there’s the contouring power, again a nice natural brown. It adds subtle definition, without making you look to Kim K-esque!
So far I’ve used the eyeshadows and the blush the most. The shimmer and matt eyeshadows are both quite cool toned, differing from my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette which I tend to wear daily, so they make a nice change.
It contains everything I would use normally when I’m doing my make-up for a night out and it’s great to use when I want to mix up my make up from my usual day-to-day look. All in all, a great little investment!
