Topshop Orion Eyeshadow Palette

I've been kind of obsessed with this little buy since I picked it up while I was snooping around Topshop on Oxford Street during my last visit to London. Purple eyeshadow always catches my attention and mettalic ones even more so. So when I came across this for just £12 I couldn't resist.

I don't usually rate eyeshadows from companies that aren't originally dedicated to make up but these shadows aren't too bad for their price. Obviously the purple shade is my favourite but the cool bronze colour is great as a mid-tone shade for the lower lid and the pale gold shade is fab for highlighting.

The best thing about these eyeshadows is the great colour pay off. The texture is really velvety and rich in pigment and so you don't need a lot of product to get a good, solid colour. The metallic texture really packs a punch, no wincy looking sheens in this palette. I find these best applied with a finger for depositing maximum colour. The purple one especially, smudged on the lid and lower lashline and with some black khol along the waterline makes for an easy, rough and ready smokey eye.

The packaging is sleek and trendy in it's little black, matte, round compact style package. The only downside is that I think that the shadows are a bit too small. I'll probably run out of the purple one soon enough and then I'll end up putting the compact in the depths of my make up kit somewhere. But for £12 I guess I can't complain, not a bad price for what will be a short term crush on a new product. Keep your eyes peeled for the next one that takes my fancy...

Just love
