There are those that get bewitched with bright, colourful shades for the eyes and then there are us, like myself, that get filled with glee over your everyday naturals, boring to some but there is always room in my collection for a slightly different shade of beige/taupe/grey.
The Power Neutrals (£35) contains the following: Boss Lady is a satin
finish light beige with a touch of sparkle, Moneymaker is a matte dusty
olive. Schmooze is a shimmery golden bronze, Boardroom is a matte deep brown (this has a dryer finish compared to the other shades).
Exec is a satin grey/taupe with a touch of sparkle, Payday is a matte
pale grey. Magnate is a matte warm yellow beige, Get Ahead is a matte mid toned
The colour payoff of all the shades is really good, and I like that
there is not much shimmer, yet still a good mix of finishes. Apart from
the deep brown,the others shades are smooth though I would say the
mattes do adhere quickly so aren't as easy to blend as the other
finishes. Wear time is not the best as even with a primer I do find
these fade quite a bit by mid day.
The collection also includes one Marvelous Moxie lipstick in Make Your
Move (£16). The lipstick has a creamy feel and a slightly heavy texture,
I don't find it long lasting particularly.
The colour is a really pretty
natural pinky brown with a slight sheen/shimmer finish.
My overall thoughts are nice but nothing outstanding, of the two I
recommend the palette as its a good price for what you get and would be
a good choice for those who usually find natural toned shadows pull
very warm, as the majority of shades are neutral, leaning cool.
I bought these from Boots.
