Smokey Suedes Eyeshadow Palette

Saturday 16 April 2016

I was super lucky this month to win this beautiful Ciate Smokey suedes eyeshadow palette by Olivia Palermo (what a mouthful) from Just Jodes giveaway. I never usually win things so I was a bit shocked and of course very excited when I got a message to say I had.

I will start off by saying that the palette is a lot smaller than I had pictured but I think this makes it perfect for popping in your bag when you're on the go. I love the crocodile skin texture it has and of course black and gold  always looks classy.

I have small hands so here's a picture so you can see the size. A great little travel item! There's a compact mirror too so you can check you're still looking fabulous ;)

It comes with 9 shades of which there is a generous amount of each. Much bigger than in the Naked palette where there's big holes in my favourite shades!

So far I have only used the neutral shades which are easy to blend and compliment each other well. They're not the most pigmented so I used a few layers to build them up but they're perfect for a natural look. Despite the shimmer in some of the colours, they don't make a mess of your face when you apply them and have a weightless feel  to them.They lasted all day with only a small amount melting in the crease of my eyes but I didn't wear a primer like I normally would.

I'm going to have fun creating smokey looks with the blue/grey shades, they're all super wearable and offer something different to my beloved Naked palette!

It's such a pretty item and I think it would be the perfect gift (or you know, a treat for yourself) for any beauty lovers! If you know of any make up tutorials using this palette I'd love to see them so drop any links in the comments :)
