Accessorize Paradise Eyeshadow Palette

Hi there! Five months ago I bought this pretty Accessorize Paradise eyeshadow palette. I loved the cute design and the palette was £6 only for 32 eyeshadows. I thought I’d be stupid not to buy it. 😀

Back then I thought I’d use and review the palette shortly. But suddenly it’s five months later and I’ve only started to use the palette last week. Oops! But let’s look at the pretty shades now. As you can see, everything’s in there: shimmers and mattes, neutrals, purples, blues, greens, pinks, greys…

Let’s start with the top row! I wasn’t happy with the pigmentation and the texture of most of these eyeshadows. Number 4 – a bright gold – was the only convincing eyeshadow in this row. The seven remaining eyeshadows were poorly pigmented. Disappointing.

The eyeshadows in the second row were a bit better in terms of pigmentation. Shade 4 – a bold bronze – really stood out. However, the mattes were still chalky and row two was still not convincing.

The third row is bursting with shimmer eyeshadows, so of course these eyeshadows are much more pigmented. I am very happy with the colour payoff of six of these eyeshadows (shades 3 – 8). But it’s too bad that I don’t like most of the shades.

And now to the bottom row! I thought that the eyeshadows in this row were a very nice surprise. I’m very happy with the colour payoff and the texture of all of these eyeshadows because they’re easy to blend and they’re highly pigmented.
Accessorize Paradise 07
I think that Accessorize’s Paradise eyeshadow palette is not great. 16 eyeshadows are highly pigmented – but the other 16 are not. The palette was £6 only, and I think the design is very cute. However, unless you buy it for the design or you’re a collector, you won’t love this palette.

Beauty Sale at Accessorize – Small Haul

Hi there! I’ve been sale shopping in London all day and I found these cute eyeshadow palettes at Accessorize – and they were £6 each only! They’re called ‘Paradise’ and ‘Exposed’ and they contain 32 shades each.

Paradise is a colourful eye palette, while Exposed reminded me of MakeUp Revolution’s Flawless palette instantly – but it’s not an exact dupe. I’ll swatch and review these two very shortly!

They also had dozens of nail polishes on sale for half price = £2 each. I chose the shades ‘Check Mate‘ (black and white glitter), ‘Berry Nice‘ (creamy raspberry), ‘Bewitched‘ (flakies) and ‘Speckled Egg Purple‘ (matte hex glitter in a lavender base).

I spent £20 in total for all these products. They had another palette and quite a few different nail polishes on sale, but I’ve got lots of beauty stuff at home so I couldn’t justify buying more. Anyway, I can’t wait to try out the palettes and the nail polishes! 🙂
