We at L’Onglex have been busy putting the feelers out for the latest spring collections and our latest find is wrapped in a rather cute printed zippy case and goes by the moniker of Peony and Python and is by Bobbi Brown.
Designed by Amy Smilovic of Tibi the six catwalk ready shades are compacted inside and include this seasons pastel purples, some rather dashing greys, a nude and a darker shade for contouring. On the finish, the shadows are a mix of sheer and matt which makes them perfect for creating light natural looks for day and more intense shading for evening wear.
Quality wise the shadows are well pigmented which makes them a dream to blend and having worn them in and fluttered around there has been a welcome absence of colour falling around our eyes. Also noticeable by their absence are those nasty sponge applicators, in place of which come two rather nifty brushes which although not perfect, do a pretty decent job if you happen to find yourself on the hop !
One thing we did find a little hard to manage however was the zipper which is a bit sticky at times, not sure if the pack comes with some WD40 but we may have to look into it should we decide to decide to put this in our ‘keeper’ pile.
The Peony and Python palette landed on Bobbi Counters on March 1st and can be yours for €45.
