Beauty: Everyday Eyeshadow Palettes Lovez ~ Dior, Lancome, MUA and Topshop

Phew, today was tiring as I totally sweat it out at the gym. By the time this post is up, I'm packing my stuff for Thailand (for business purposes) trip and probably be quite flustered fussing about what to bring. 

Alright, let's jump into the palettes. These 4 palettes are what I've been rotating on a daily basis and I just couldn't get enough of them. I mean, all the eyeshadows (with the exception of the lighter colours of the Lancome one) are just so soft and buttery and incredibly pigmented (well, Dior is a slight notch down though). 

From the back (See!? I can use my DSLR properly by focusing the back and blurring the front wtf), Lancome X Alber Elbaz Hypnose Doll Eyes 5 Colour Palette and MUA (Makeup Academy) Starry Night Eyeshadow Palette. 

Ever since I acquire the MUA eyeshadow pallete (which is super affordable) I've been using it non-stop. Although it doesn't show up in the photo but all of the eyeshadows contain sparkly bit and has a sheen to it. Its just surprising that the eyeshadows are nicely pigmented, long lasting on the eyelids, less fallouts and they only show signs of creasing after 8 hours of wear. The colour range is more towards cooler tones and it suits my olive skintone well. This is absolute love. 

I wasn't as keen towards the Lancome as I was with the MUA as some of the colours are of chalky and will make a mess out of your face with its fallouts (I'm looking at you, white and lightest grey). However, when I'm only paying for half the price of a normal Lancome palette (sales event), I would say its pretty much a good bargain. 

The front, Dior Couture Eyeshadow Palette in Pink Pompadour and Topshop Smokey Eye Palette in Constellation.

The Dior palette was a gift (which I truly am grateful for) and I instantly fell in love it. The packaging is to die for and the embossed lacey bits on the eyeshadow is just so feminine and girly. Totally up my alley. Sufficiently pigmented, pastel colours buttery soft and long wearing, this Dior is just gorgeous. Money well spent I'd say (although not from my pocket). A full review on this Dior lovely would be up soon. 

Last but not least and again with the discount, I got the Topshop palette for 70% off. Although I seldom use dark blackish colour, I just love the coral and purple colour within this palette. They are surprisingly soft and pigmented. They lasted 7 hours on me before fading a little. I just love that the packaging comes with a mirror and the exterior is littered with quirky pink polka dots. Great buy. 

Yup, that's it for now... Till next post ^_^

I very raerly use palettes (or even eye shadow), so it's interesting to read your reviews and comments on these ones.

You can start from the cheaper ones and slowly work your way up to the more expensive ones. If there is only 1 palette that you want your money's worth, I highly recommend the Urban Decay Naked Palette.

Love the picture and your blog post. I hear nothing but good things about the little Dior quads. Can't wait to get my hands on one someday!

Keep in touch,
