Shadow Links

IMG_0981I am a huge fan of any kind of custom palettes so when I saw these connectable single shadow links a few months ago I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them.. until the reviews started pouring in. I’m not sure I’ve read/heard a good one to date. I decided against them since they’re not super cheap when you consider you’re going to buying multiples (otherwise what’s the point) but these were sent to me recently so the opportunity to test them was given to me after all.

IMG_0984There are 4 finishes, Satin, Pearl, Matte and Metallic, I have 2 Pearls – Candy and Lilac and a matte – Plum. The matte swatches considerably better than the pearls and since receiving these I’ve been back to swatch some in store and I can confirm that the Metallic colours are even better. The range is definitely hit and miss but providing you make the right choices you can definitely create a little custom palette worth having for a reasonable amount of money.

I can see why there are negative reviews.. had I seen just the pearl shades as an example of the line I wouldn’t have had much positive to say either. I can’t say that they’re the BEST I’ve tried for the money but the linking concept is original and that alone gives them enough edge for me to want to try more.

Available online for £2.99 each

    The matte one looks really cool, it is a purpley brown, and I would use it everyday! (I adore plums and browns, they look great on my eyes, luckily)
    But the other ones are kinda scary, they would be adored by my old auntie!

    These colours look fab, I’ve heard great things about them, and for £2.99 each you can’t really go wrong!

    I really like this idea, its hard to find something with all the colors you want in a palette. This looks great because you can also just grab one. Thanks for sharing this!
