The colours are highly pigmented - these swatches were from two swipes from each shade which was enough to give pretty intense colour. They have a soft texture but not too powdery which is great for building colour without too much fallout.

The lightest shade is a perfect base colour. It works well with all of the other shades. It's not matte but not shiny either. It's got a satin finish so you can use it all over your eye from lash line to brow bone. The satin sheen will still give you a subtle highlight under your brows.

For a daytime look, you can just use the gold or the dusky pink shade all over the lid. (Top Tip: I always mirror what I do on the top underneath the eye as well; you can use the dark plum colour as an eyeliner with a slanted liner brush.) It is also a gorgeous colour to use to create a really smokey eye. You can use the dusky pink shade as a transition colour and then smoke out the plum colour from the lash line for a really smokey eye.


These pink and plum colours are renowned for making green eyes pop. They are also great on brown eyes as they create a nice contrast with the eye colour. Plums will work on blue eyes too so they are basically perfect for everyone. If you are afraid of looking tired or like you've been crying when using these colours my top tip is to lash on liner and mascara with them. Black eyeliner and loads of mascara will define your lash line so they don't accentuate any redness in the rim of your eye.
