17 Trio Eye Shadows
Advantages: All three colours complement each other. Complete all in one for eyes. Good quality powder.
Disadvantages: May seem a little expensive at first. You may end up wanting to buy all the variations!
I just went the other day - I was feeling pretty frumpish and decided I needed to get myself vamped up and looking a bit more presentable; I ended up buying about 6 different sets of eye shadows fro Boots. Luckily they were on a promotional 3 for 2 offer.
The eye shadow sets were mostly of the No7 range - the trio sets with three different colours in one compact. This really appealed to be as I saw that almost all of the eye shadows were at least several pounds for just one shade, and with the trio sets the price seemed more reasonable, making it more better value per shade and also a bonus with the promotional offer taking place.
The shades are not just any random colour, they are very complimentary of each other and very accomplished in its own right - everything you need for your eye make-up is in this pack, apart fro the mascara of course.
The range comes on tones of blue, white/grey/black, browns, greens and pinks. They have the metallic versions in a coupe of the shades which are brilliant for special occasions. The tones are wonderful, very natural and subtle.
I find the powder applies well, and is very good with blending. I always end up looking as if I've applied too much, but this only shows how good the quality of the powder is and how well the colour goes with your face, and it is also perfectly flexible during blending and I have always felt that I am always in control with this make-up set. Fro this, I mean that there have been times when I have had only two minutes to spare for make-up, and I would of course quickly dab a dollop of this onto my lids and it is so quick to blend.
The eye shadow stays well during the day and I have never had to worry about it and I have never had to reapply during the day. It is also very easy to remove during cleansing, any mild eye-make remover will suffice.
The only down side to this compact set is that it doesn't come with an applicator, so I usually end up using cotton buds or fingers (!). However, despite this, the pot of 3 costs only £4.99 (although I've seen it on sale for £1.99 somewhere...!). It does seem a lot at first but when you think about buying three separate eye shadows and then being really confident enough to choose the shades that complement each other. With this compact, the colours have already been chosen for you and they definitely combine well together, plus it's all from a quality brand and it's definitely a quality product. Just saves so much hassle and time. Almost a bargain!
Thanks for reading xx :)
Summary: Perfect for my eyes.
