How are we all? So life following the Christmas-New year (2 week) break has resumed its normality…kind of! With this in mind, I will be back to uploading three times a week (Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday), maybe even 4 as I am considering a Friday round up type post but we’ll see how things go!
Anyway, cracking on as it’s Beauty Review Tuesday and I am sure you guys are eager to know my thoughts on this week’s product –right?
You’ll remember early in December I treated myself to the Glamour Party Edit Beauty Box (see that post here) and one of my early favourites from the selection of products that arrived is the Wild About Beauty eyeshadow in 08 Polly.
As you all know I pretty much stick full time to palettes, particularly the Naked palettes from Urban Decay and thus rarely use single pots anymore and to be honest this is unlikely to change. However, I really do love this eyeshadow and for that I am more than willing to make an exception.
First off, the packaging of the product is really pretty -it’s small and compact and I love the little mirror in the lid. It is of course too small to use but it’s the attention to detail I like and I think little mirrors finish packaging off nicely and allow it to ooze quality when they are included. The only slightly negative thing I would say on the packaging, and this really is being picky, but on the top of the lid there is text which you just cannot see clearly unless you hold the pan up to the light and even then it’s a struggle. Like I said it’s a picky point but why go to that effort to design something that can’t be seen? To finish on a positive though I love the embossing of a bee into the product, again it is that attention to detail that allows a product to stand out from the others.
The eyeshadow itself is a goldy-brown colour with a slight shimmer to it which is beautiful and so easy to wear. The consistency of the product is well pigmented and blends well. I have worn it as an all over colour as well as just using it for the outer corners and blending with something lighter. The staying power is also excellent.
Overall, a really worthwhile little product to have that I will no doubt continue to use and enjoy.
Have any of you guys tried this product or something else from Wild About Beauty?
