Edward Scissorhands 25th Anniversary Palette by Sugarpill

Happy Halloween everyone! Today I bring you the Edward Scissorhands 25th anniversary eyeshadow palette from Sugarpill, which is the closest thing to a 'neutral palette' that Sugarpill has ever released. The shades are all very beautiful and pigmented with two shimmery and four matte textured. The shades are described as follows:

Home Sweet Home: matte powder blue
Ice Angel: silvery white with iridescent blue sheenThe Inventor: creamy metallic gunmetalSuburbia: flirty matte coral, doubles as a blush shade!Heart-Shaped Cookie: soft matte beige - the perfect blending shadeCastle on the Hill: deep stone brown - the color of a castle’s deteriorating exterior.

I think the colours in this palette are perfect for Autumn and Winter and I'm looking forward to trying out more looks with them.

The palette is limited edition and currently out of stock on Sugarpill's web shop but one last restock is coming soon. I bought this for £25.95 on where it is also now sold out.

Sleek MakeUP Enchanted Forest Palette.

Sleek recently launched a couple of new iDivine eyeshadow palettes and when I saw they were having a 2 for £10 offer in Boots and I just so happened to have a gift card I knew I had to pick this up. The Enchanted Forest palette is a beautiful mix of fairytale shades with the great quality I have come to expect from Sleek for such an affordable price of £7.99. I particularly like how different this palette is from most that I own and I bought it for this reason. There are a couple of shades in this palette that look a little too similar like the 2 plum shades but other colours are really unique and look very different in the pan than they do on the skin. The shade 'Grand Duke' looks like a beautiful navy in the pan but it's actually a royal purple when applied. The shade Lady Tremaine definitely needs work as you can see it hasn't watched very well but if you take care to build it up it is a really beautiful shade. My personal favourites in this palette would have to be 'Perla' and 'Happily Ever After' They are very pretty shades that make a nice change from the dark heavy shadows I usually gravitate towards.

Have you tried the Sleek Enchanted Forest Palette yet?
