Ted Baker eyeshadow trio – Silver/black.
Although I’m more of a gold person I can appreciate how lovely these two silver colours are but it’s the black I’m really in love with. I was actually quite surprised at the pigmentation of the black eyeshadow as the other two silver colours are quite subtle. The black is very smokey and contains little specks of glitter which really makes this shadow stand out.This trio would be great for a smokey eye.
Ted Baker eyeshadow trio – Gold/copper
Now I’m not usually one to throw around the term ‘ beautiful’ when describing makeup but these eyeshadows really are something. I might be a little bias as gold toned colours are my favourite but it’s hard to deny these eyeshadows aren’t lovely. I found these lighter colours have better pigmentation than the silver/black palette but again it’s the darker colour that I prefer- it’s a reddish copper and gold colour which is quite unusual.
These shadows last quite a long time but I’d still suggest using a primer for a long wear.
This eyeliner has a hard felt tip style lid so it makes creating cat flicks simpler. I wouldn’t say this is the best eyeliner I’ve used as it does wear off after a few hours and the colour isn’t as black as I would have liked it to be. I wouldn’t choose to wear this on a night out but it’s ok for a few hours in the daytime.
Now I didn’t have any high expectations for this mascara, the wand looked too simple to create any noticeable effects on the eyelashes but I was pleasantly surprised. This mascara isn’t the best for adding volume but it gives your lashes a decent curl and really lengthens them. My favourite thing about this mascara though is the formulation. I find a lot of mascaras can be disappointing at first because they can be a bit too wet and prone to smudging the first few uses but this mascara isn’t like that at all. You could also get away with applying just one coat of this as it boosts the eyelashes on first application without the need to layer.
I wasn’t blessed with good eyebrows so I have to be super fussy when choosing twizzers. I thought these looked pretty but I was sure they weren’t going to be any good -I was happily wrong. These really get to any stray eyebrow hairs that need attending too and have a good grip.
I was given this set for Christmas but if you wanted to get hold of it you can still buy it online 🙂
