Hi, lovelies! You have probably realized by now that colorful eye shadows are a huge trend right at the moment. And this is not surprising as so many new eye shadow palettes that have been released in the last 6 months have a whole range of colorful shades. Intense earth tones are all I need nowadays as well – various shades of red, orange and brown that perfectly complement a neutral outfit.
My eye shadow palette collection has expanded once more last week! Ličila.si sent me the amazing Soph X palette by Makeup Revolution created in a collaboration with a British blogger and Youtuber SophDoesNails. This is an eye shadow palette that has it all: 14 matte and 14 shimmery shades, a variety of neutrals and transition shades, but also light shimmers and some bold colors. And ever since I attended an event organised by Bottega Verde Slovenia on Friday, where the amazing and talented makeup artist Anja Kolnec showed us hot makeup trends with intense eye makeup, my wish is to try and recreate a similar look on myself soon! Anyhow, I love these shades, the nude and the shimmery ones have some fallout, but otherwise is similar to the other Makeup Revolution London palettes. Just beware that the blue shimmery shade in the middle isn’t what it looks like! It’s actually duochrome and turns into a brown/blue shade when applied to the skin (the rightmost shade on my hand).
However, this beauty was not the only thing I received! The package also included a gorgeous rose gold highlighter from their Ingot Highlighter collection. There are three shades available, the other two are gold and platinum. Although the rose gold looks quite dark, it works pretty great as a highlighter on my complexion. But I also love that it can be used as a shimmery blush or an eye shadow. I watched a Youtube video about these three and they are sooo buildable, it makes me wanna buy the platinum one as well haha!
Nevertheless, this isn’t over yet! Ličila.si team has kindly given me a coupon code for a free shipping, so if you’re from Slovenia and want to do some shopping with a free shipping, you can use the code ‘ZENSKA‘. Thank you so much for such a lovely surprise, Ličila.si!
