Good evening everybody! I am so glad the weekend is almost here! Not just because it’s the weekend, but ***Saturday *** is the 2nd ever Adelaide Beauty Conference… It will be the first year that I have attended and I’m so excited to be a part of the action and to meet more bloggers!
Tonight there are another two posts for your reading enjoyment – first this review post, and then some information about a great upcoming beauty related charity event which you might want to participate in (or may already plan to participate in!).
Let’s get cracking!
Lost in Omo! ‘s creator Marti recently sent me a package of goodies, which included a range of Daiso items (if you missed that post it’s over here). Daiso is a discount store with a difference – it is a Japanese chain! As such there are all sorts of things there which you will not find at traditional “2 dollar shops” (as we tend to call them here), and I believe most items are under $5 AUD. Sadly Adelaide has NO Daiso, whilst Marti’s home of Melbourne has three (unfair right?! lol ), so I was stoked to get a hold of some Daiso goodness!
I have been able to try out the Pearl in Eye Shadow Elegance Purple quad and it’s not bad for the price!
Here we can see it swatched in natural and then artificial light – shades are from lightest down to darkest:
The colour is not very pigmented but it is buildable. If you used it wet and/or with primer you could create some really bold looks! The shimmery and glittery aspect to the shades is not that obvious when applied dry.
I was going out to a casual lunch so the look I created is a bit (ok very! haha) understated, but it gives you a bit of an idea of how it can be worn:
This quad would be handy for use for work or casual looks and I would buy it for that purpose. I don’t like to spend too much on the shadows (or mascara, lippies, or glosses for that matter!) that I use for work as I wear them 5 days/week and they run out relatively quickly! If however you wanted a highly pigmented product with pow! factor and long wear, this is not for you.
Beautiful rating 8/10: quality 3/5, value 5/5 – average quality (which one has to expect for the price!) and very good value. (And Marti, thanks again for this as despite my quality rating I got a real kick out of getting to try this out! )
What are your picks from Daiso? Have you tried this quad, in the same or another colour?
