REVIEW: Artistry Little Black Dress Palette

The Artistry Little Black Dress Eyeshadow Palette sells itself as being inspired "by the wearability of a little black dress" and as featuring "a collection of beautiful bolts of colour that can be picked up anytime to add day time polish or night time party". 

It comes in a limited edition black patent case that I waver between thinking is cute and, at other times, a little over-kill. However, it's very compact and sleek and, unlike most palettes, doesn't take up too much room in a make-up bag. The inside is the most impressive part of the packaging, with a really good, large mirror the whole width and height of the lid, utilising that space to perfection. Similarly impressive is the brush. Most brushes in palettes are a waste of time and invariably are lost, ignored or discarded. In this case, however, the brush is a keeper! The blending end is quite good and works product into the crease easily, for a smokier look a fluffier blending brush would probably be necessary but for more controlled application, this is great. The tapered end is the most amazing little feature - it allows for application of the black shadow super close to the lash line, making it into quite a good eyeliner. And the tip tapers so neatly that you can use it for winged liner. 

There are eight colours inside, in grey to purple tones; five shimmers, one matte and two lusters.  These include Pearl (a glimmering white shimmer),  Candlelight (a dusty mauve shimmer), Evening Out (a steel grey shimmer), Midnight (a berry luster),  Little Black Dress (a black with sparkle), Glamour (a deep dramatic plum matte), Stiletto (a light pewter with metallic shimmer luster shade) and Sequin (a pearly pink shimmer). The shades are pretty and highly pigmented but also blend like a dream. The range of colours also allow for pretty and girly spring daytime looks or smokey evening looks which means that the palette is not only compact but also versatile - it's a truly useful palette for travel or popping in a handbag.

Overall, this is a great palette not only for the SS15 season but would be a great starter or just basic palette to have in your collection. It retails at €57.70 and is available from www.amway.ie/.





Using Pearl on the inner corner and bottom lash line, Midnight on the centre of the lid, Glamour on the outer corner and Little Black Dress as a liner.
