So today's post is one from the vault!.... Well, that's a bit dramatic; perhaps six months ago! I came across a memory card I thought I had lost and found lots of products images I had ready for review on my blog. So, rather than letting them go to waste, I will share the products (that are all still available now) here. First up are up close pictures of the, sell-out, SoSu Hot Fire Palette.
Suzanne Jackson is one of Ireland's biggest beauty bloggers and beauty business women and this was her first eye shadow palette launch. It retails for €29.95 and is available in pharmacies nationwide. The palette itself is made from a sturdy board so it's not too heavy and I was delighted to see that it included a large mirror in the lid - always a plus.
The palette contains 12 eye shadows - 8 mattes and 4 shimmers, ranging from pale creams and champagnes to warm apricots and deep chocolate browns. Here's a list of the colours:
. Naked - Pale, matte cream
Heat - Soft pale peach
Spark - Rich warm brown
Ignite - Matte sandy ochre
Embers - Warm apricot
Pot of Gold - Burnished metallic gold
Iced - Shimmering buttermilk
Blaze - Metallic taupe
Flame - Shimmering copper
Depth - Matte cocoa
Copperlight - Warm chestnut
Smoked - Deep chocolate
Most of the shadows have great colour payoff and are quite pigmented with the exception of the darker shades surprisingly. These work better under the lash line rather than over the lid as I found them separating otherwise. Some of the eyeshadows do have a bit of fall out but most of them stay surprisingly pigmented. The palette is Paraben Free, Cruelty Free and Vegan Friendly
Like I mentioned, the palette is still available from SoSue's website and from pharmacies nationwide. To buy online click >HERE< to get it for just €23.96 or >HERE< for €27.50 from Cloud10Beauty.
