Last year around november, I started to clean up a bit of my makeup collection. I haven’t managed to purge a lot of products cuz a lot of them are so dear to my heart. Especially those eyeshadow palettes. I touched and swatched a lot of them on hand, and got into using those “old” palettes only lying in drawer again. Then I saw a great project on Instagram from @fifibeautyocd. She started to use some palettes which were not so often reached for in her makeup collection. I thoguht, wow, I shall follow this hash tag! So here it is!
I would like to take out one palette at a time, do a bit of swatches and do at least one makeup look with it. If I have any thoughts , I will be reviewing a bit about this product.
One Wink At A Time-Gosh quattro eye shadow-Q52
About this eyelook:
I used the upper two eyeshadows in this palette to be the “point” colors. I used the light lavender color all over the lid then put the dark–almost grey purple color along the lashline till the outer V to make the eyelook purple themed 😀 Then I added one brow bone highlight color and a warm taupe purple crease blending color to complete this look.
About this eyeshadow palette:
This palette’s brand is a Denmark makeup brand, it is sold in the Kruidvat in the Netherlands. I have tried quite some products from this brand, the eyeshadow quads range has some quite interesting colors. To my personal opinion, the eyeshadow are not as dry as some other western makeup brands. The textures of eyeshadows are quite smooth, but light pigmented. And different colors has different textures. It somehow is a bit similar to some asian brands– especially some Japanese drug store brands’ eyeshadow products. Thus it is very easy for newbies to use and not making too much mistakes since it is not crazily pigmented. But the good thing about its pigmentation–they don’t fade that easily like some Japanese drugstore brands’ eyeshadows. Or in another word, they have quite good staying power.
Then here follows the full face look and products I used:
I will post another look with this palette using the lower two colors in a few days :>
