Accessorize 32 Shade Eye Palettes

I was very excited to discover in Superdrug on Friday that Accessorize have added some new items to their make-up line.  Accessorize is one of my favourite high street make-up brands so I just had to grab their two new 32 Shade Eye Palletes straight away.

There are two colour options; Lovely Day (leopard print cover) and You Are Everything (Union Jack cover).


You get 16g of shadow in total in each palette so 0.5g of each shadow and the pans are about the size of a 1p piece.  Lovely Day contains a mixture of neutral shades while You Are Everything contains a slightly more colourful selection.

First up here’s a closer look at Lovely Day.

And now You Are Everything:


Again you can click on the collage below for a closer look.


Well I really love both of these palettes; I think you get a great selection of colours and finishes (mattes, shimmers and metallics) and the price is good too with the palettes currently retailing for around £9 each.  Actually Superdrug are running a 3-for-2 promotion on cosmetics at the moment so I picked up their new mascara at the same time.  It’s called Fibre Lash Lenghtening mascara and costs around £7.



The packaging as usual is super cute; a violet tube with pictures of butterflies on it.  The wand of this mascara is hard plastic, with short bristles on one side and longer bristles on the other.  I guess you can wiggle the short brushes through the roots of your lashes to build root volume then brush the longer bristles through to the tips to build length.  I think mascara is such a difficult product to provide a good review on as the user experience depends so much on the lashes that you start off with.  I’m afraid that even though I love the fact that this is so buildable (I’m currently wearing 5 thin coats and I could’ve gone for another three or four) without clumping, but this mascara just doesn’t do it for my puny lashes.  I need something that’s a bit clumpier to be honest to build a bit of volume.  The Accessorize Flutter Curl mascara is much better for me.

Here’s a pic of the Accessorize Flutter Curl mascara wand with a trendy photo effect:


And a quick side-by-side comparison so you can see the similarities and differences in the wands and packaging:
