Cherry Culture The Strip Collection – Mirage

image

The Mirage palette contains 12 beautiful shades, from neutrals to the perfect summery coloura, including a variety of mattes and shimmers

The eyeahadows are very buttery and they blend like a dream. I only found the red shadow to be a bit patchy or chalky but I think reds have always been hard to get perfect.

So far I am LOVING this palette. I’ve had a play around with the more neutral side of the palette but those oranges are calling to me! Should be posting a look using those soon.

My go to palette! Too Faced à la mode review

IMG_9029.JPG
So afew weeks ago I asked what kind of things people want to see reviewed and my go to eyeshadow palette came up a number of times! In all honestly I have so many eyeshadows I mix and match on the daily but I decided to talk about this one as I find it the most versatile and has some of my most reached for shades. Anyone that follows me will know I love a neutral brown smokey eye I’m not really big on colours for my everyday look, but with this palette it does have the right amount of colour & neutral shade balance it’s perfect for that simple smokey eye of if you want to mix it up with a pop of colour you have that option aswell!

So let’s start by what too faced describe this palette as:

Too Faced A La Mode Eyes Sexy St Tropez Eye Shadow Collection is a gorgeous collection of summery shades to create bright and fresh eye makeup looks.
Capture a summer sunset in St. Tropez and say Ooh La La to this sensational collaboration of coral, golden pink and fiery copper hues. This indulgent eye shadow palette utilises Too Faced’s revolutionary silky smooth eye shadow formula which blends seamlessly and delivers vibrant colour with pure pigments for true colour payoff with an airbrushed effect.

First of all I will say this is a summer palette but as I understand it will be permanent for the time being so don’t worry you can still pick it up!

So let’s jump in with the shades
Described below
St. Tropez – Soft beige shimmer.
Cannes – Fiery copper.
Soleil – Rich chocolate shimmer.
Riviera – Pale peachy nude.
Jardin – Golden coral shimmer.
Cote D’Azur – Shimmering pewter.
La Croisette – Matte ivory.
Monaco – Fuchsia pink shimmer.
De La Mer – Deep navy blue.

I find I reach for riviera for my lid and Soleil for my outer v the most out of all the sades in the palette, however i’ll also use Cote D’Azur as a transition shade or for a more subtle smokey eye, and De La Mer for a real intense smokey eye normally if I’m going out or just feeling extra vampy that day, one of the things I love also about this palette is with a light hand you can use any of the lighter shades as a highlight even Jardin looks gorgeous swept over your cheekbone blended into blush 👌

This palette retails for £28.48 on beautybay.com I love to purchase my high end makeup from there as there is always a sale on or a free sample thrown in with a order!

My final thoughts
The only thing missing from this palette in my opinion is a good matte brown shade for transition! So if you are travelling or on the go you will need to grab one from your collection to go along with it but that is just my personal preference, it is also a very shimmer heavy palette so if you are more the matte shade lover it may not be for you but the shadows are of such a high quality, smooth & blendable I just can’t fault it! Like I said before u tend to mix and match with other shadows but you can quite easily create loads so many looks with this I will defiantly be repurchasing in the future!!!
