When Tanya Burr recently announced she was included eye shadow palettes to her already sell out cosmetic line I knew I was going to have to give them a go. I am not a huge lip gloss wearer (this girl is a matte lipstick fiend ) but an eye shadow quad? This was something I could get behind. With than in mind, I ventured in to Superdrug and picked up two palettes: The Hollywood Palette and the Galaxy Palette.
There are three palettes you can choose from and I was instantly drawn to the Hollywood Palette. The neutral eye girl in me was instantly drawn to the shade which is the most intense bronze glitter I have come across on the palette. When applied the shade is actually not as intense which is a good thing because it means you can build it up to the intensity that you wish. On the morning I took the above picture I was heading to work so applied it very lightly so you can see how it looks.
During the same trip to Superdrug, I had my eye on the Galaxy Palette so a couple of days letter I went to pick it up. I had been experimenting with cooler tones on the lids and the shades stormy sky and moonlight intrigued me.
I have to say I am more than just impressed with the quality of these shadows. For £5.99 you can create an entire look with one of these palettes and the quality is there too. The pigmentation of these shadows is something I instantly noticed. I wore the Galaxy Palette to work one day and came home at around . As I went to take my make up off I noticed the shadow was still all there. It had slightly faded but considering I did not use an eye primer this really impressed me.
There is no fall out as you may expect from a drugstore palette. The formula is slightly powdery in the pan but does not appear on the face. It applies easily without getting everywhere.
On a slightly different note, I cannot, not comment on the packaging. The way Tanya has designed the palettes make them look more luxe than a £5.99. With a cute love heart mirror inside it works as a gift too. I have a few younger cousins who adore Tanya and I plan to surprise them with a palette of their own.
Between the two palettes I have rarely used anything else on my lids for the past month. While Galaxy has been on my lids the most, when I have gold eyes I have been using the Hollywood Palette. In fact I have to now start forcing myself to use the other palettes I have.
Congratulations on a fantastic line Tan!
