I got eight eyeshadows in total. This included:
- Four shimmers (Twig, Barefoot Contessa, Viola and Sparkle) and;
- Four mineral matte (Makalu, Nanda Devi, Kalahoo, Illimani).
I then realised that though I love the eyeshadows, I have already have three matte colours very similar to the ones that I have just brought. Fail. However, all is not lost, I have decided to keep the all four matte eyeshadows for my next giveaway. Out of the shimmers, Twig is definitely my favourite. It looks almost brick red, but it gives a deep bronze shimmer.
From the pictures you can see that I also brought a bronzing cream aptly named 'sun gel' and a tinted moisturiser. The swatches of these didn't come out so great in the pictures so I haven't posted them up but needless to say they are both pretty good! I usually use Benefit's 'talk to the tan' to add a bit of colour to my face, however, I have learnt that this is being discontinued (as well as my prized Jiffy Tan - what the hell am I going to do?!), so it will serve as a replacement for now.
The tinted moisturiser was definitely worth the £2 that I paid for it, I got it in 'dark' as I wanted a bit of a glow, but nothing too drastic. Its great for everyday wear when you don't want to look completely like you have bathed in fake tan.
I got the entire haul from M&M Direct (here). I'm not sure what they have left but it might be worth checking out as some of the eyeshadows were as cheap as £1! I would also like to say thanks to Nude Obsession who pointed out this great giveaway and also to ask if anyone knows where I could get some inexpensive, empty Stila palettes to house the eyeshadows? I originally found some for £2.99 but they are all sold out now.... I should have been more impulsive!
