I wasn’t going to buy this, due to the fact that I already have so many eyeshadow palettes, but whilst shopping in Selfridges I saw it, and I could not resist picking it up. I’m so glad I did!
The shades in this palette are perfect for the upcoming seasons. The red and purple tones are so Autumnal, and theres a great mix of both matte and shimmer shades. Personally I would have preferred maybe one more shimmer, but I have so many shimmers in my collection that its something I can get over pretty easily.
So starting from the bottom, upwards the first shade is called ‘Ounce’ and is almost invisible against my skin tone. This is such a good shade for setting eye primer, due the the fact that it matches my skin so well. Next up is ‘Chaser’, which is a really great transition shade. This is super creamy and blends out really seamlessly. After that is ‘Sauced’ which is a gorgeous orangey brown shade, and this looks gorgeous all over the lid for a smokey look, and also blended through the crease. The next shade is ‘Low Blow’, which is slightly darker, and less orange than Sauced. This again is gorgeous blended through the crease to add depth to the look. After that is the first of the shimmers, which is called ‘Lumber’ which is STUNNING. Honestly all four of the shimmers in this palette are gorgeous! This one is a light pink shade with gold shimmer running through it and it looks stunning packed all over the lid, or in the inner corner. Next is ‘He Devil’ which is super similar to ‘Sauced’ again but darker. I haven’t used this one yet, but i think this will be gorgeous blended through the crease and on the lower lash line. ‘Dirty Talk’ is the second shimmer, and it again stunning! This is a very coppery shade and I again love this packed all over the lid. This is my favourite shade in the whole palette. After that is ‘Scorched’, which is probably my second favourite shade! This is again a shimmer shade and is a dark, rose gold shade. After that is ‘Cayenne’ which is a dark warm brown shade, which is perfect for deepening the outer corners of the eye. After that is ‘En Fuego’ which is a deep Maroon shade, which again would look lovely in the outer corners of the eye. the last matte shade is ‘Ashes’, which is a deep purple. This is stunning and I think would look lovely all over the eye and blended out to look really smokey. The last shade in the palette is ‘Ember’ which is a bronzy shimmer shade, and is stunning!
Overall this palette is gorgeous and all of the shades so far work really well!
