When I was a child I used to love playing with my Mum’s eye shadows and creating a wide range of looks on both myself and my sister. I was always fascinated by the range of colours and loved experimenting with colour combinations. That fascination has never left me and eyeshadow palettes are my guilty pleasure! Therefore I was really excited when I was offered the chance to review the Bomb Dot Com 24 Shade Glitter Eyeshadow Palette from Jolie Beauty as the glitter eyeshadows looked simply amazing. Luckily I didn’t have to wait long for it to arrive, the order was placed on the Tuesday and the palette arrived on the Friday which I thought was excellent service.
Jolie Beauty isn’t a brand that I have heard of before but a quick look on their website told me that it is the brainchild of a team of highly experienced make up artists who, over the years, have worked with some of the biggest names in make up. Their experience has driven them to design and create a range of fun but professional products to suit the budget of any artist or make up lover. Each product has been tried and tested by the experienced team and only once they are happy with it does it appear in their collection. Their products are not tested on animals and all their products are 100% cruelty free, they also try and favour vegan products where they can. I love the ethos of the company, they donate to animal charities and also work towards awareness of animal testing.
The Bomb Dot Com 24 Shade Glitter palette contains a dazzling array of 24 glitter eye shadows with intriguing names including Mermaid, an aquamarine shade, Firefly, a lilac based shade which goes perfectly with a whole host of other colours and Seabed, a vibrant blue that looks stunning on your eyes. The palette is made from cosmetic standard glitter meaning it is face and eye friendly and can also be used all over the body, perfect for adding subtle highlights wherever you need them.
The palette looks stunning when you open it, the glitter eyeshadows are incredibly bright and sparkly and really eye catching. There is a handy mirror in the lid of the palette and it fastens securely with a magnetic clasp, a cardboard protective sleeve in the same glittery design as the palette adds that luxury feel to the product. With Christmas set to be a little different this year I am currently looking at gifts I can easily post and the Bomb Dot Com 24 Shade Glitter palette fits the bill perfectly as it is thin and quite lightweight and once wrapped will still easily fit in a jiffy bag.
The eyeshadows are easily to apply either with an eye shadow brush or with your finger and can be worn on their own or combined for a really eye catching look. I did find using my finger the best method of application as it was easier to get the glitter to stay in place and I could apply more without it brushing off.
We all need a bit of sparkle and glitter in these strange times that we find ourselves in and I can guarantee that once you open the Bomb Dot Com 24 Shade Glitter Palette you will feel brighter!
The palette costs £27.99 and is available from the Jolie Beauty website
