The holiday Grand Bal collection features heavily on golds and reds. Packaging wise the lipsticks and nail polish shapes seem rather reminiscent of the early Dior style which I was never a fan of so I went for the eye shadow palettes which are in the normal packaging.
will show you the Night Golds (£40) palette which is the warmer of the two.
It contains a shimmery slightly frosty white, metallic golden copper (this one has rather large chunky particles and makes
the texture look uneven in the pan, though it applies smooth) a
shimmered gold beige, a shimmered yellow gold and a matte dark charcoal with gold sparkle.
Apart from the darkest shade, which has a dryer feel, the other shades
feel soft and smooth. All shades apply and blend well, with a good
wear time and no fall out.
Swatched below (I've not smoothed down the copper shade as wanted to show you the heavier texture)
Being very cool toned and not a fan of warm shadows I was pleasantly
surprised how well these worked; the cool base of the darkest shade works to keep in check the warmth of the golden shades.
An elegant way to wear a bit of shimmer/sparkle, well
A family member bought me this from Debenhams.
