Today I'm bringing you the last of my MAC March launches!
Bao Bao's Jewels Velux Pearlfusion ShadowYou know I'm a sucker for anything sparkly, so as soon as this bedazzling beauty landed on my desk I was more than involved. I adore the collection of colours in this palette - they're warm and wearable tones that would work, whatever your complexion. If you've followed me for a while you will know I've frequently been reaching for matte shadows but this palette could definitely be the one to change that. If you’ve seen THIS video where I preview the collection, as I swatch the eyeshadows I was initially disappointed. Since having a proper play I now feel quite the contrary, I also learnt THREE important things :
1. If applied with a fluffy eyeshadow brush you get a soft wash of shimmer but little colour- It's a pretty and effortless chic look.
2. If applied with a flat synthetic brush (suitable for cream products) the application is INCREDIBLE! The consistency of these shadows becomes almost cream like and the finish is metallic - Honestly so striking and rich in pigment. It's almost as if you're applying loose pigment pressed onto the lid. (This is how I applied the shadows)
3. For even more intensity you can use these shadows wet - Spritz your brush et voila!
