I never buy single eyeshadows (other than MAC ones for my palette) as I think palettes are just more useful, better value and easier to store so everytime I see a palette I get excited. The Accessorize eyeshadow palette in You are Everything if one of my most reason additions- the palette comes with 32 (slightly on the small side) eyeshadows in a wide range of colours.
This palette is actually one of two, the other one ‘Lovely Day’ is more neutral and in my opinion more suited to winter (read VIPXO’s review here) where as this one is very inspiring for the summer. The packaging is also very pretty and has beautiful coloured butterflies & flowers perfect for a little added colour inspiration and also features a strong Union Jack.
For most people I would say the colour selection in this palette is perfect and more than you would ever need. Yes, it doesn’t feature a bright Yellow or a vibrant orange but how often do we get the chance (and are we brave enough) to wear such colours? The best thing about this palette is that although it does feature colour each eyeshadow is very wearable. There are some matte shades, some stunning shimmery shades, neutral shades for those of us who like to play it safe and some slightly more daring purples, reds and blues.
As with many inexpensive palettes the matte shades are just okay, slightly chalky and with average pigmentation but the stand out colours are the shimmery ones! They are pigmented colours which are easy to apply and just as easy to blend! I would always recommend a primer underneath any eyeshadow, using my Nars eyeshadow primer these eyeshadows last pretty much all day or at least as long as I need them to.
I am so tempted to say that this palette is good for those who actually wear colours on their eyes but instead I think it is perfect for anyone who is use to browns and nude colours on their eyes but that want to start exploring other colours.
I think I personally prefer this colour over the other one as it covers all bases.
This palette retails for £8.95 from Superdrugs and larger Accessorize stores
