Finally, I'm back. It's been a stress-filled couple of weeks, but I have been really missing blogging! I've not had much spare time but I have been active on Twitter and Instagram since I signed up for a new phone - you can follow me @seonaidbee on either of those platforms. Today I'll be reviewing the Next Golden Beauty Palette, £4*. By the way, you'll be seeing the little star (*) fairly frequently over the next couple of months - the Cosmo Blog Awards came with a very generous goody bag, for which I am grateful - but keep in mind I am always honest whether I buy something myself or not! Promise :)
The Next Golden Beauty Palette comes with four powder shadows and a lipgloss, as well as sponge tip and lip brush, in pretty flimsy cardboard packaging, which I don't like. I didn't have high expectations for this palette as I have never bought beauty from Next before. When I swatched it I was pleasantly surprised:
Here it is on my eyes - it lasted about four hours without fading, without primer.. Here I am wearing White Gold on my (badly in need of threading) browbone, Bronze on the lid, Amber in the crease and Aztec on the outer corner. These are very easy to blend and apply. I am also wearing Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Rockstar on the waterline.
