I placed the order on Monday morning and my parcel arrived today. I thought I would share a few quick photos for anyone who was considering a purchase. I haven't had chance to play with them yet so this is just a look at the pans and some quick swatches. The lighting isn't good enough today for anything more.
|Natural light. L - Nefertiti, R - Princess|
My initial thoughts are that both colours are very pretty. The powder felt lovely and soft as I swatched. The swatches are quite a few passes over the skin to show the colour so they seem to offer a sheer but buildable colour. I think Nefertiti will make a nice highlighter shade and I imagine I will also be able to use it apply a sheen over blushers. I suspect I will use Princess as a blusher. My apologies that this isn't a more thorough review but I wanted to show you them before they sell out and are gone for good!
The Pressed Shimmer Powders are priced £15 each and there are four shades available. The other two shades are Gypsy - a bright golden pink and Odette - a golden peach pink. The other items that are on sale are the Fine Loose Finishing Powder (£13), Line + Illuminate Liners (£8.50) and Antibacterial Jumbo Pencil Sharpener (£5). Although I was momentarily tempted by the Line + Illuminate Liners, I remembered the problems I had with Belize. Admittedly, I do use the liner end quite a lot.
Postage cost £3.50 but shipping is free if you spend over £35 (sorry for my earlier gaff!). There are limited supplies so I think the sale will last as long as stock is available.
