Sculpted eyes

NIP+FAB is very known for they skincare range – clue is in the name and the fab products mostly containing acids are effective and affordable.

The Eye Palette Sculpted, however, was my very first contact with NIP+FAB as a makeup brand and I am not disappointed.

The NIP+FAB Eye Palette Sculpted has 9 great warm shades from light cream to dark brown, to sculpt, shade and smoke eye from day to night.

Most are matte but there are 2 gorgeous metallic shades that work well with any combination on the palette. I’ve been using it a lot, especially for day makeup.

Eye shadows are velvety and don’t drop, and I was impressed with the pigmentation and durability, as well as blendability and how well all shades combine.

I love dabbing a little bit of the stunning shimmery shades in the centre of the lid as a final touch to my eye makeup – an easy way to make a day look sparkle for the evening.

The NIP+FAB Eye Palette Sculpted is available from Superdrug and costs £12.95. You can also explore the new(ish) NIP+FAB makeup range which has everything from bases to colour.

At the moment, Superdrug has a 3 for 2 in selected cosmetics and beauty accessories (including this palette) and you get a free tassel when you buy in the promo!

You know the drill, but I’ll say anyway: this post contains PR samples. This review, however, is based on my experience with the product and reflects my honest opinion on them.

My favourite every day eyeshadow palettes

favourite-day-eyeshadow-palettes - 8Anyone who knows me in person will know I wear eyeshadow and eyeliner pretty much every day.

I wrote about my favourite eyeliners a while back and it would only be fair to talk about the eyeshadow palettes I wear very frequently – and some show!

favourite-day-eyeshadow-palettes - 3I’ll start with Urban Decay Naked 2. Now, I have 3 and Smokey, but they don’t quite measure up. The mix of earthy and gold tones, in shimmer and matte, are perfect for any occasion. Add a matte black and voilá: you cannot go wrong.

favourite-day-eyeshadow-palettes - 4The GOSH Copenhagen palette is a matte dream: 9 super wearable shades that take you from day to night, with one massive advantage: this palette is so small that is perfect to carry around with you.

favourite-day-eyeshadow-palettes - 6Sleek has a couple that really work for me. The iDivine eyeshadow palette in ‘A New Day’ mixes beautiful golds and browns in shimmer and matte, as well as a bit of pinkish earthy tones, for an all-round look. The browns are dark enough for a lovely smokey that is not too heavy.

favourite-day-eyeshadow-palettes - 5The Sleek eye and cheek palette in “A midsummer’s dream” is a fabulous one to take away too; great colours for the eyes, buildable and a bonus cheek shades.

favourite-day-eyeshadow-palettes - 7This Makeup Revolution Iconic Pro 2 palette is huge: 16 shades, a good mix of shimmer and matte, lots of neutrals but also a couple surprise colours to amp up a look – navy, moss and mauve, I am looking at you!

Of course, I have many other palettes and plenty individual colours too I go to when I am creating a special look, but these are really the ones I go to every day!

favourite-day-eyeshadow-palettes - 1And they are all quite affordable, ranging from £6.99 (Makeup Revolution) to £38.50 (Naked 2).

What about you? Do you have a go to eyeshadow palette?
