Make-up, Swatches

Loving Victoria Secret Provocateur Eye Shadow

I have always walked by the make-up section in Victoria Secret assuming that it wasn’t up to scratch. Since I have joined the beauty community online I have heard so many of you raving about their Beauty Rush lip glosses and some of the eyeshadows.

I did order a few lipsticks last year and they were lovely quality however I choose the wrong colours.

On a recent visit to the US I popped into VS with the sole purpose of picking up some make-up and giving it a whirl.

I swatched every product they sell and one of the products I settled on is was Provocateur eye shadow. It really caught my eye.

 

 

 

 

 

Despite it’s initial powdery appearance this is a creamy shadow. It’s easy to apply and a delight to work with.

Colour wise, Provocateur is a blend of peachy champagne with a hint of gold. There are some pink undertones in there somewhere so I tend to avoid this shade if I look tired. But on normal days, it makes my complexion and eyes appear brighter.  It’s slightly shimmery but still suitable for day wear.

When I applied the shadow with a brush, rather than the pretty creamy champagne/gold above, I ended up with a load of shimmer. This was down to my method of application- I applied the shadow with a brush which just picked up the sparkley particles rather than the pigment. I tried applying it with my fingers and it went on perfectly.

I have been wearing this on the lid with MAC Antiqued eyeshadow in the crease and Twinks in the outer corner…. love!

What’s your favourite eyeshadow at the moment?
