Well this is the first time I've been on the laptop for around 48 hours which is a big thing for me because usually it's as if its glued to my hand! I've had a horrid sickness bug which is the first one I've had in ages and I forgot how awful they are.
Today I'm posting about a new make up line available from Look Fantastic, it's actually not the kind of make up that you'd imagine a 22 year old to be into because it's got the name 'Twilight' attached to it. I knew this brand existed but I didn't realise how extensive the range was, they actually have 2 different names within the brand; I've been trying out some products from the 'Volturi' range but there's also the Luna range. Unless you've watched Twilight the word 'Volturi' probably won't mean a thing to you; in the film series the 'Volturi' is the name of the most powerful family in the vampire world... anyway I won't bore you with the plot of the film because I know some of you despise it so on with the review...
Twilight Labyrinth Loose Eye Shadow £10.00, Look Fantastic*
I've been trying out the Labyrinth Loose Eye Shadow* and Foreshadow*, I'll start of by saying how pleasantly surprised I am by these, I honestly expected Twilight to be a pre-teen make up range but then when I realised Look Fantastic stocked them they must be aimed at older people. The loose eye shadow is a lot nicer to use than it looks, I've not had much experience with loose eye products as I've always thought they'd be messy, hard to work with and a bit scratchy on my eyes but this Twilight one is really soft and easy to use; rather than using it as a full eye colour I've been using it as a liner on the top lash line, it works really well with 'Sin' as the base colour from the Urban Decay Naked Palette. I can tell the little pot is going to last me ages because what I've been doing is just using whatever product is on the lid, that way there's even less mess and I don't waste any. The foreshadow works perfectly with the loose eye shadow because it gives it something to stick to and means that it glides on effortlessly, although it looks as if it has a strong colour to it, it actually doesn't once you've blended it onto the lid there's a slight sparkle but there's nothing too brown or noticeable so you could probably use this as a primer for any colour.
Overall I quite like these, My only concern is that the loose shadows are £10 each, the packaging really doesn't reflect that at all, the box is lovely; the design and the inside pattern but the actual pot is really thin plastic, something I'd expect to find in budget ranges. Quite disappointing really! These would be much more suited to a glass pot or even a thicker plastic with a nicer lid. Although a pink eye shadow isn't something I'd normally pick out of a shop and use it actually looks really nice as a liner. The whole range is full of quite bold colours so it isn't something you'd want to look into if you're more comfortable with neutrals but if you like to experiment these would be worth a try.
You can buy these and the whole range of Twilight products from Look Fantastic; the Twilight lip venom looks particularly worth trying!
