Starting Off: Eyeshadow

I love H&M's Shadow Palettes - they're as good as any other I've had in the past and I love that each set comes in an array of shades that compliment one another. They're super cheap too at around £2.99 so you'd be forgiven for buying every shade!

I actually rarely use eyeshadow. I'm a bit of a clumsy moo and end up with half the product fall down my already made up cheeks so opt to save it for nights when I have more time to get ready.

It's with this clumsy trait that initially drew me to Rimmel's Scandalous Shadow Paint. Having dabbled with cremes in the past I feared this would crease like many others I tried but this is AMAZING!! I haven't gushed about a make up product for so long but I cant recommend these enough - especially for quick on-the-go applications with 'I've spent ages doing this' results.

First off, you don't need a steady hand or art degree to apply these flawlessly. A quick swipe of the wand on your lids and voila! It takes such minimal effort and you can even blend the product out with your fingers making the usual requirement of holding an army of eyeshadow brushes nearby redundant. 

I've got a feeling Scandalous shadow paint in 'bronzed' will be a repurchase of mine for many years to come...

I love MAC too, but mostly due to the fact the pallets are completely customisable rather than having major love for the actual eyeshadow product itself - I'm not sure it's price tag is wholly justified. 

What do you prefer? Powder or creme eyeshadow? Have you tried the Rimmel Scandalous shadow paint? What shades do you wear on your lids? 

PS Primark Haul coming soon! :)
