When the lovely people from the Born Pretty Store contacted me on whether I wanted to review some of their products I have to admit I was quite excited. I’ve heard of the brand before as they are quite known for their nail art supplies. I totally suck when it comes to doing my nails but the Born Pretty Store also offers a wide variety of makeup, jewelry and other accessories, so there’s definitely something for everyone.
While browsing their website I came across this glittery eyeshadow trio and it immediately reminded me of Christmas and the holidays. I’m such a sucker for glittery things, so it’s only naturally I opted for this one.
This little palette contains a black shade, a beautiful shimmery bronzed shade (quite possibly my favorite) and a lovely very glittery silver shade. All of the shades contain golden shimmer particles for a sparkling effect, which I think is just perfect for the holiday season or New Year’s Eve. December is just the perfect time to go all out when it comes to glitter and sparkles, don’t you think?
Now, I really love the texture as its so soft and silky, which makes it so easy to apply! When it comes to eyeshadows my biggest pet peeve is when they are too chalky but these are quite creamy. All three shadows are quite pigmented, though the bronzed shade is definitely the most pigmented.
I think this is just the perfect little trio for everyone that loves a bit of a sparkle. The black and silver shades are perfect for creating a glittery smokey eye and the bronzed shade is so beautiful and perfect if you want more of a softer and warm approach maybe. First I was a little afraid that the glitter particles might move around, because I’ve had some bad experiences with glitter eyeshadow before but luckily these stay put and don’t move around. After all I only want my eyes to make a sparkling statement and not my entire face to look like a disco ball, right?
I can definitely see myself getting a lot of use out of these once December rolls around but then again you can never go wrong with a little bit of glitter, so basically this will always come in handy for a night out or a special occasion that could use a bit of a sparkle.
