• Palladio Crushed Metallic Shadow

    On one of my trips to Dischem - the dangerous kind when you go there in the mood to shop - I spotted a box of very pretty eyeshoadows perched on a shelf. When I looked closer I was so in awe of what I saw and started swatching them immediately. It was only then that I stopped to actually read the box - Palladio Crushed Metallic Shadows.  After swatching a few colours I decided on two because there was no price on them and I didn't want to have a nasty surprise at the till.
    Stellar Supernova
    I chose two wintery colour and actually stepped a bit outside of my comfort zone by choosing a deep almost burgundy colour that has a slight bronzey shade to it.  It creates such a beautify warm shade that is perfect for Autumn and Winter.  I also decided to get a colour that is more "me" - Stellar.  Stellar gives you a beautiful wash of warm gold.
    Stellar Supernova
    These shadows are silky soft, creamy and highly pigmented.   They have amazing depth of colour and are seriously reflective.  What I like is that these are beautiful enough to wear alone or to combine together.  I took the swatches using only one swipe of my finger across each of the shadows - look how beautiful they are!
    Stellar Supernova
    When applied to your lids it is best to start off with a very fine first layer and then build up the colour.  If you are patient with it, you can build up a similar look to what I have in the photo above.  I do find that these shadows stay in place longer with a primer on your lids however you can simply apply them directly to your lids and the shadows last well throughout the day. When not used with a primer they do tend to transfer a bit off your lid and other the area above your crease.

    I tried to show this off properly on my eyes but really battled to photograph it. Here is a look I created using the two shades - I used Stellar in the inner corners of my eye and Supernova on the outer corners. I then blended the two together in the middle of my lid.  I also took Stellar under my lower waterline and smudged it a bit. I did the same with Supernova under but on my outer waterline.
    The Palladio Crushed Metallic Shadows are R99.95 each at Dischem.  When I consider how good these are, R100 does not seem much at all for these. You get great colour payoff and a shadow that lasts very well throughout the day.  Added to that, the shadow is so unique that it creates a beautiful look that is sure to draw attention.  I am actually considering getting a few more colours the next time I go to a Dischem - I just hope that there are still some in stock.

    1. I picked up Stellar a few months ago and oh my gosh, it's amazing. I swear, everytime I wear it, I get questions about it or compliments. So nice to see someone else loves it too.
