No 7 Colour Rebellion Palette and EOTD

One of the nicest things about blogging is that there's such a nice community of people, and lots of generous peeps who buy things out of their own hard own money to offer to their readers as giveaways!  I've been very lucky, winning two giveaways in a month.  Last week I won the No. 7 Colour Rebellion Palette from the very lovely x Diamonds and Pearls x.

I had been tempted by this palette, and I love the bright, vivid colours, and gorgeous funky packaging.  But, having been naughty and spent too much money on makeup recently, I decided to resist.  So it was a lovely surprise to find out I'd won the giveaway!

I've been experimenting recently with brighter colours, especially after I got my Urban Decay NYC BoS, so this is a great addition to my eye shadow collection. I think my favourite colours are the Chrome Green and Purple Haze, as well as Red Lead - very autumnal.  I'm less taken with the Indigo Blue - it's just a bit too bright for me.  But I can use it under my lower lashes to give an extra pop of colour.

I've had a bit of a play with some of the colours.  I've used Chrome Green on my lids, which has a lovely finish and Red Lead on the crease and outer corner.  I then used the blue and purple to line my lower lids.  The colours are pretty good quality and quite pigmented.  I found them easy to blend and to work with, although I don't think I chose the best combination of colours.

I'm really sorry about the quality of both my makeup application and my photos.  My boyfriend was hanging on the bathroom door whilst I was trying to apply it, and my camera just wouldn't take a good photo.  I think I'm going to have to make sure I take all my pics in natural light, as it just doesn't like artificial lights...

Many thanks again to x Diamonds and Pearls x for holding the giveaway - and go and check out her blog if you haven't already - it's very lovely!

Thanks for reading!  xx

hmmm not so taken with this pallette, the colours just look ugly in the pallette, but they swatch beautifully... I'm not sure i'd use them together but, nice colours separately! xxxxxx
