I wear it every day; I'm too pale with chickenpox-scarred skin (plus chloasma) to not wear foundation at least. Then because I'm wearing foundation my eyes disappear. Truth be told, wearing make-up makes me feel more confident and smarter. The only problem is that I've got in a rut with my eye make-up. White eyeshadow with a slick of grey-silver eyeliner pencil smudged in (to highlight the grey of my eyes) and a slick of black mascara. I'm bored of wearing it, others must be bored of looking at it.
So when I was sent the latest GOSH Smokey Eyes Palettes to try out, I was more than happy. Smokey eyes don't have to just be for evenings and nights out, and I always like the look of them in the glossies in the supermarket or hairdressers, so I was eager to try them out on myself.
I was sent the three palettes to try out: Black, Brown and Plum and was really impressed with them. Admittedly I personally don't favour the brown palette as I'm so pale that I think it makes me look washed out, but the black palette is my new favourite eyeshadow and it means I get to use my expensive make-up brush set that sits feeling forlorn.
The eyeshadow is very good quality, blends easily and lasts for hours without settling into creases. I adore it and have had quite a few compliments from work friends about the colours. I feel a bit more like a 34 year old and not a frumpy fuddy duddy.
GOSH Smokey Eyes Palettes are available from Superdrug for £7.99 each and come in three colours.
