Hi! I have been testing out two products by Urban Decay, their Hi-Fi Shine Lip Gloss formula and the Beached Eyeshadow Palette from the limited summer collection. So, here is my review!
The Beached Eyeshadow Palette is $34 dollars/€38,95/£28, depending on where you live. For this price you get eight beautiful eyeshadows from which one shade has a matte finish and the rest are all shimmery. I wish that there was at least one more matte shade in the palette just to have at least on other colour that can be used in the crease or other v of the eye, but that is also because I personally prefer to use matte shades in these areas. Nevertheless, I do think that you can create a lot of different looks with this palette.
Additionally, I find the packaging very beautiful and since it is quite compact it is easy to take with you while traveling. However, I do have a little complaint. Because of the way the top part is attached to the side with the eyeshadows, it makes the palette very long and hereby difficult to use the mirror. It is possible to flip the side with the mirror underneath, so the palette doesn’t become as long, but this means that you have to turn around the palette every time after dipping into an eyeshadow. Idk, its just a bit impractical.
Furthermore, the formula of the eyeshadows is very nice! The pigmentation is great, but you have to build up the blue/turquoise eyeshadows a bit more than the others (sometimes I like to use a fingertip or wet brush for these shares). Additionally, the shadows last all day and don’t crease! So, you don’t really need to use an eyeshadow primer! All in all, I think it is a great palette and I find the shades simply gorgeous!
The packaging of the product is rather pretty and sturdy. Plus, I like the shape of the applicator and the fact that the packaging allows you to see the colour of the lip gloss.
I also really like the formula of the lip gloss as it is quite pigmented for a lip gloss, lasts a decent amount of time (± 2 hours) and the shine of it is beautiful. Moreover, the gloss is not sticky, but you do of course feel that there is a layer of product on your lips. In addition the lip gloss tastes like mint, which is actually really nice…. Not sure if that is a good thing though! haha
I find that Snitch is a beautiful shade for summer and since I really like this formula I want to buy more shades of the Hi-Fi Shine Lip Gloss.
