Let me start by introducing myself, I’m Vicky and I blog over at Vixen Fashion http://vixensfashion.
blogspot.co.uk/ I’m 22 and study Fashion Design and Technology at MMU! I jumped at the opportunity to do a guest post for Keeley as I have never done one before so please read my post below and check out my blog for similar stuff!
I was sent a really cute sample of Alima Pure Shimmer eyeshadow in Paris to try by Keeley.
I know it’s a sample but the pot is just so cute!! The little bird on the front with the shimmer behind it is lovely, I couldn’t wait to give it a go so I got straight to it!
I started my normal makeup regime, foundation, powder and bronzer, then I wanted a sticky substance for my eyelids as the eyeshadow is so shimmery and light it needed something as a base. I didn’t have anything like this in my makeup bag so I mixed a dash of lipgloss and a dash of foundation and this worked perfectly!! I then applied the eyeshadow, I used my finger for this as I didn’t have a brush handy and I didn’t want it to go everywhere!
After I applied the shimmer I lightened my brow arch with a light gold Ted Baker shadow that I already own, I softened the shimmer with an orange Ted Baker eyeshadow and then applied my mascara in the normal way.
I really like the eyeshadow as it’s very glam! I don’t think I would use it on a normal day to day regime but for going for dinner or a night on the town I really liked it! I would definitely look into the product and the other shades so that I could purchase a full tub!!
Hope you enjoyed my post!
Peace & Love
