First of all, it’s the weeekkeeeenddd! Happy saturday, hope you’re all having a fab weekend.
Today’s post is a kind of review/ chit chat on a few products by the lovely Peaches And Cream. If you haven’t heard of this brand then trust me you need to check them out. Prettiness overload! Their products are pretty darn cute and when delivered, arrive in a pink envelope, need i say anymore?! I love that the brand was created by two makeup artists who have gone on to build their own empire. Based is liverpool this brand actually does bridal packages and offers makeup courses.
Can i start by firstly saying, how darn pretty are these loose eyeshadows?! I’ve spent all morning playing around with them and i’ve had so much fun. Although my leggings are now covered because i didn’t have anything to wipe my brush each time, so yes i used my leggings. Shame on me.
Firstly let’s talk about their eyelid primer,i always used to forget this step and it’s pretty important. With a primer, eyeshadow will be more bold and will last a hell of a lot longer. This one is almost like a concealer kind of colour and consistency. It feels velvety, kind of almost like the Benefit Porefessional texture maybe a lighter though. At £5.00 it is defiantly worth the money. I’m loving skin tone primers at the minute, i feel they really help cover redness and what not. I defiantly reccomend!
Now, let’s talk eyeshadow. They retail at like, £5.95 each which is a reasonable price for the quality. I genuinly can’t believe how pigmented these pigments are. That sounds kinda strange but you know what i mean right?! They’re seriously gorgeous, really vibrant.
I will admit that i never really use loose eyeshadow because i tend to get majorly messy and covered in the stuff, but i do think they’re better for packing on the colour. I tried with a dry brush firstly (Not a fluffy one though because you’ll have less control and struggle to apply it making it less effective) It looked very pretty but with a more buildable colour. If you wanted a very subtle look then use less and with a dry brush. But if like me, you love pure vibrancy then heres what i was amazed with. Dampen your brush with a setting spray first and no joke, the colour turns into an amazing, vibrant, more solid colour. I was in heaven when messing around on my hand. My snapchat went a little crazy, major obsessing!
It was at that point i realised, this loose eyeshadow could be so multi purpose. If you prefer pressed eyeshadow then press it yourself. If you’d like a tutorial on that then let me know! Or even as a highlighter/strobe cream with the lighter shades they stock, simply mix into some moisturiser. They so good for multi uses. Think outside the box!
Please please pleaseee tell me if you’ve ever used this because i would love to know! If you liked reading this post then comment, like, follow!
