REVIEW: 27 Pinkx Eye Shadow Palette

High End Eye Shadow Palette by 27Pinkx

Hi Lovies,

In my Day 120 of 365 post last month, I mentioned that I attended the launch of the fab new brand 27Pinkx. We were utterly spoiled to a morning of decadence at the Saxon Hotel in Sandton where we got to meet Anjum and Khatija, the two sisters who are the creators of 27Pinkx and who are determined to bring some of that Hollywood luxury & glamour to South Africa. 

While 27Pinkx are mainly known for their to-die-for storage units that will make you ask "Kardashian who?", they also have a dazzling make up range! I was lucky enough to receive the beautiful High End palette consisting of 10 different eye shadows.

But before I go on and show you the beautiful colours, I have to share that 27Pinkx are cruelty free (I was assured by the owners who are in the process of being certified) and they are very dedicated to the welfare of animals! 

These colours are highly pigmented. Just one slight touch of your make up brush to the eye shadow and you have so much colour to work with! I was seriously impressed!

These are the colours I usually work with:

© Vapour - Brow bone & Inner corner of my eyelid
© Dello Russo - Eyelid
©Savage - Outer corner of my eyelid 
© Tommy Ton - I use just a touch of this as eyeliner to emphasise my blue eyes 

Vapour has much more of a yellow tone to it than I expected, but the more I got used to it, the more I liked it. I add the other colours such as Roitfield or China Tang when I want to create more of a dramatic look but this is what I usually use to create as my day time look:

The Eye Shadow Palettes retail for R460 on their website and is definitely worth it in my opinion! I find myself reaching for this palette everyday now when I do my make up and I'm looking forward to creating more dramatic looks for future events I attend. 

I also got a chance to test out their make up brushes so check back next week to read my review on their brushes as well as to see what's on my wishlist (like I said, fabulous make up!). 

I'd love to know your thoughts on this eye shadow palette and what you thought of this post?

Love Always, The Glam Green Girl xXx
