I decided at the end of January, that February would be a no buy month for me. Two reasons really; I realised that I had spent a lot of money around Christmas time, then just kept spending in January. Secondly, there are all these make up items that I that haven't got round to being used at all - which is crazy. My vanity/dressing table is in dire need of a tidy...
I am so short on time at the moment, that it has been difficult to get round to photograph these new goodies, which I like to do before I start to use them. I decided that a no buy was the best way to get through the backlog of stuff before I even consider buying anything else...
Time issues have also meant that I have been relying on my palettes recently. I'm finding it much easier to have a set of colours in one place, ones that can be patted on quickly over a shadow base. I have been digging out my Sleek, MUA pro and other palettes and really enjoying them. I don't think that I have used a loose mineral for about a month now. I love my minerals, but they are more time consuming to use than a palette, especially the sample baggies.
So lets have a look at this nice little palette:
|Swatched dry over Pixie Epoxy|
I bought this when we went away to the coast at New Year. I went into Superdrug and all the Sue Moxley Famous was reduced to half price, so this was a little under £2.
I have never tried Sue Moxley before, but when I tested these shadows, I thought that they had a nice amount of pay off and a nice mix of colours.
I haven't used all the colours yet but you can see how one could build up a nice soft look using the colours on the right, or a darker look based on the ones on the left.
I have been using the Maybelline colour Tattoos or my Mally Taupe shadow stick as a colour base beneath my palette shadows, to boost wear and colour, rather than Pixie Epoxy, but I wanted to swatch these over PE to show these colours as they are 'naturally'.
The shadows themselves are smooth, blend really nicely and wear really well. I noticed on the back that these are made by FB Beauty, who make MUA and Vivo. I would say that these are the same in terms of quality as those products, not surprisingly!!!
The packaging is similar to the MUA quads, sturdier than the MUA trios.
Overall I like this palette. It's neat and has a nice selection of wearable colours. I am not sure if Sue Moxley is discontinued, but if you get a chance to buy any of the range, then give them a go!!
Have you tried any Sue Moxley?
Bye for now
