B. Complete Eyeshadow Palette in English Rose






I've reviewed some other B. products before so I thought it was about high time I got around to writing about the eyeshadow palette which I purchased at the same time as the foundation, lipstick and blusher. These three are all items I'm very impressed with and I think that B. is probably up there with E.L.F as one of my favourite brands. Or at least these brands had my heart before Arbonne came along anyway, but we'll talk about later. Sadly I don't think the quality of this palette quite matches up to the three products I've reviewed already but it isn't a bad product by any means.

As B. is a fairly new range - just under a year old I believe now, the shade range of the eyeshadow quads isn't that fantastic yet but I was really drawn to English Rose when I saw it. As much as I am a typical beauty blogger, drawn to neutral browns and taupes, purples and pinks are my favourite shades of eyeshadow so this quad looked pretty perfect to me. A quick swatch in the shop, and into my basket it went.

These are lovely, soft, blendable eyeshadows which glide onto the eyelid with ease. They create a lovely, girly daytime look that can easily be transformed to something a little more dramatic with a simple eyeliner flick. The shades all complement each other beautifully and perhaps apart from the white highlight shade, they all work well on their own as well. I like how the packaging shows the shadows inside and it feels very sturdy.

My one little upset with this quad of eyeshadows is that the shadows themselves are not as pigmented as I would like them to be. Although there is a clear difference between them in the pan, they do look very, very similar once applied as you can see from my swatches and demonstration photos. I think if the shades were true to pan, this would be one of my perfect palettes but sadly they're just not as strong as I would like them to be. However, they're still very pretty eyeshadows and they do last a long time on the lid.

Have you tried B. eyeshadows?
