I see sunlight... Bring on some colour!

In London, a ray of sunlight is enough to get us all excited for the summer. Well because hope for sunlight is all we live on, the sun never really shows up you see. 

So I popped out some bright colours to suit a sunny day. My two favourites are Cobalt Sea(£5.99) and Midnight Mauve(£5.99) by First Light Cosmetics. These are both 100% mineral powder eye shadows but are special as they are the most pigmented ones I've tried out from the 'mineral market' out there. 

You know the perception we have that one will have to compromise with pigmentation if the products are mineral based, is so not true with these babies. 


Midnight Mauve is a darkened Cadbury Purple. You have to possess AT LEAST one gorgeous purple in your kit, its not me, it's what the rules of the Universe say. If you want something that gives you colour yet is easy to blend, then this is for you. It's very soft and silky but you will need a base to make sure it 'pops'. 

Cobalt Sea is a colour that cannot be replicated and one which is quite unique in my collection. It is a light yet bright aqua blue with a slight hint of green shining through it. A wash of this all over the lids with a winged out liner will give you that fresh summery feel without looking OTT. 

Below I used Cobalt sea all over the lids along with lining the lower lash line with some Midnight Mauve. I think the combination looks great! 


Considering that you get a lot of product for the price you pay, these are totally worth a try! The shadows are quite silky and easy to blend and the pigmentation is great as you can see.

I am eyeing some gorgeous neutrals they have in their range, as a girl can never have too many taupe eye shadows eh? :p
