Happy Easter All
Hope you’re all enjoying some tasty Easter treats! I’m currently waiting for a tasty pizza to be delivered as there has been no Easter roast for me this year :(!
I’ve been given some tasty Easter treats though and they’ve been tucked into.
On Friday we went to an event for the launch of the new Electric Palette from Urban Decay. I was really intrigued to see how they’d use the palette as for me (and I’m sure many others the palette looks really scary at first!)
The ladies from the Cardiff Urban Decay counter are brilliant and so helpful. I love that we all had face charts of the looks that were going to be created so we could remember all the products used. We also had a pen so we could easily write down any tricks! (like you can use the pore perfecting primer to turn an eyeshadow into a long lasting lipstick!)
L absolutely loves Naked Skin at the moment and did purchase it after the event. At the moment my skin is too bad for such a lightweight foundation.
So here is the beautiful Electric Palette. The packaging is gorgeous!! I absolutely love it. The colours are pressed pure pigments so are super pigmented and can be used in a variety of different ways as was demonstrated!! They convinced we I totally need it but I don’t know if I’d actually use it so I’ve resisted for now. The palette contains 10 eyeshadows and a brush and retails for £38. The shadows are all a decent size too and will last forever! And at only £3.80 a shadow it really doesn’t work out that bad!
The first look created was one to show how to subtlety use the palette for everyday wear. The slight bit of pink through the crease looked so pretty on and subtle. I’d also love to use the amazing blue shade (Chaos) and the purple (Urban) as coloured liner!
The next look was a more full on look for a night out. I love that they used the jilted pigment on the lips. It makes such a gorgeous colour. The eyes remind me of a parrot in a good way. I’d love to have this look done on me for a night out. It really did look amazing. I’m not sure I have the skills to recreate it.
The final look included coloured brows, a pink contour and using the shadows as hair chalks!! I’m totally in love with coloured brows. As I have pink hair at the moment I’m so tempted to try this. I’m not sure I’m confident enough to pull them off. This would be amazing counter/stage make up!
There were lots of products to play with. Myself, L and Nina (from the little nomad!) were swatching everything!! The new glitters look amazing. Some of these were used on the lips and the eyes in the final look and really finished it off.
Thrash (the yellow green shade) looks really scary in pan but really looks great when used a little on the inner corner. It was also used where you’d use highlight to bring out the cheeks!
Here is Chloe at stage too prior to false lashes!! The colours really pop and she makes it look really wearable!
And the final look. Look at those brows!! I’m in love!! The eye make up is so stunning. I love how creative the girls are!!
Such an fun afternoon. L and I enjoyed some shopping after and we will be sharing our purchases soon!
