I only received these last night so for now I'll just be sharing my swatches for. Overall I think that this collection has some lovely brights for the summer as well as a couple of nudes that can be used for a more natural look in the Monaco palette. The blush and pout polish can be applied heavily or lightly to give different overall effects. This is a limited edition collection with the palette priced at £6.49 with the blush and pout polish both £4.30.
Links to full reviews of each product and a FOTD can be found at the bottom of this post. I hope you enjoy :)
Without going to a premature review of the Monaco palette I'll try and give a small overview. The palette contains 4 shimmer shades, 1 pearl shade and 7 mattes. So far the colours that I have tried have looked beautiful on the eyes and have worked really well together as well as being well pigmented.
Top Row -
You can't actually see the first shade as it's very similar to my skintone but it's called Bamboo, then Aquamarine, Midnight Garden, Sunset, Washed Ashore, Magenta Madness.
Bottom Row -
Summer Breeze, Sand Walker, Kiwi Zest, Lotus Flower, Humming Bird, Moors Treasure.
When the full review is up I'll give an overview of each shadow including the finish and colour description.
|Monte Carlo Pout Polish|
Both the Santorini Blush and Monte Carlo Pout Polish have the same city-scape pictured on the outside packaging. I think this is a nice touch as at a glance I know what is inside - the outside packaging of most sleek products is identical until you read the name of the product.
|L-R: Santorini (Blush), Monte Carlo (Pout Polish)|
So far my first impressions are that the blush is very well pigmented, which I found out the hard way after looking like a clown when I first applied! The Pout Polish is fairly sheer but still gives a pink tint to the lips. Full reviews of these should also appear in a few days once I've has a chance to have a proper play and gain a proper opinion on how they work and are used.
