GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.
Onto my new giveaway! Yay!
This month it is being sponsored by Shelley Frances Makeup. I purchased quite a few eyeshadow samples from Shelly and have been using them for about a month now. The sample bags are BIG and have HEAPS of product in them. I have heaps left in my baggies after a month of almost everyday use.
I went back and repurchased my favourites in the full sizes as I honestly think they are just brilliant. They are richly pigmented and combined with her fantastic primer, they last all day without creasing or losing color.
We got to chatting (as you do) after I asked if she minded me reviewing her products and she offered to sponsor my next giveaway which I very quickly said yes to.
** Shelly is giving away 4 FULL SIZED EYESHADOWS which is worth $24 and she will ship Worldwide! **
Along with eyeshadows, Shelly also makes her own lipsticks, primers, foil solutions and is releasing a mineral foundation in November. Her ETSY store can be found here:
I have a few pictures for you in my VERY limited knowledge of applying makeup. I really want to take some lessons but unfortunately just don't have the time so you will have to make do with my best attempts!
This eye look was using SKIN OF A KILLER as the base, STARRY NIGHT along the outer corner and along crease and BLUE DIAMONDS as the highlight on the inner corners.
This is my most favourite eyeshadow color to date: NATURE and it's just divine. This picture was taken with Nature over Shelly's primer on the eyelid. I *think* I used WHOA in the crease. Nature actually increases in sparkle 3 fold once brushed on over her Foiling Solution. I just love it and it really makes my blue eyes POP!
Left eye: A very, very light dusting of PETROL along the crease, RUBY CAVE as the red in the inner corner and SKIN OF THE KILLER as the base. PETROL is a super Jet Black with gold sparkles so I tested this initially with no primer and a very small smidgen on my brush...yes, I'm a bit of a chicken!
Right Eye: SKIN OF THE KILLER as a base then NATURE in varying shades on the eyelid, corner and crease. That's what I love about Nature, you can change the color dramatically with how much you use.
I have also been using her Flawless Mineral Veil which was made to "Absolutely erase blemishes and lines and help diffused look to it. It isn't shiny, but will will give you a soft, youthful glow for a beautiful skin ".
Since using this I have stopped using loose mineral foundation. This does make my tiny lines disappear around my eyes and it makes my skin more "Vintage" porcelain which is the look that I am after (above picture). I now only use a little concealer on any breakouts and my Flawless Veil powder.
You get 20g and you only need a *little* bit on your brush, so this jar will last you ages.
These are the sample baggies. You can get 10 sample baggies on Shelly's ETSY store for only $10. It's such a bargain.
Shelly's lippies and glosses...mmmmm!
As I said, my items were all purchased by me so this review is from my own awesome shopping experience and not because I received freebies!
