oh what a Lovely Day
Accessorize 'Lovely Day' Palette* - £8.95
Accessorize is a brand that I am very fond of. When I was 21, I landed my dream job working for Monsoon Accessorize head office in their merchandising department. I was based within the jewellery section and my day was filled with beads, bangles and excel spreadsheets. A dream for me! Since leaving, I have continued to watch Accessorize grow and grow and I am excited that they have now branched out and introduced their own makeup range. I don't think Accessorize will ever become the one-stop-shop for makeup and beauty items, but I have no doubt that their range of reasonably priced products will do really well. The beauty of Accessorize is that they capitalise on those one-off, last minute purchases that you can't help yourself picking up. You may go in for a new scarf, clutch bag or a pair of flip flops, and in variably you will also leave with a new keyring or a pack of cute stickers! I think their new makeup range will mirror these spontaneous purchases and also make for perfect gifts for friends and family as well.
Today I am featuring one of their two new eyeshadow palettes, 'Lovely Day', which is a neutral toned palette with a mix of 32 matte and shimmer powders. The other palette, 'You are Everything', is a combination of brighter tones, featuring cool blues and warm pinks. The packaging of this palette is very typically Accessorize and has a handy mirror and elasticated fastening to keep it compact and easy to transport. The shades are very complimentary and offer great pigmentation, so are a really fun way to add a sweep of colour instantly to your makeup look. With 32 individual shades for just £8.95, I think this is a brilliant palette and definitely worth checking out.
The new cosmetic collection from Accessorize also includes a range of individual baked eyeshadows (£2.95), bang-on-trend nail varnishes (£2.95), defining brow pencils (£2.95), a fibre lengthening mascara (£5.95), intense lip glosses (£3.95), matte finish lipsticks (£4.95) and a selection of three unique fragrances to tempt and enchant you (£9.99/£15). I have a few other products from the range to feature, so do let me know if you would like to see anything in particular?
Accessorize's makeup collection will be available to purchase from Accessorize and also in Superdrug stores nationwide from 6th June 2012.
