I've got so many amazing palettes over the past few weeks, and I just can't stop buying! When this Glo & Ray Mariposa Palette in Golden Dunes* landed on my doorstep, I was so excited to use it. Glo & Ray are a brand that deserve so much more recognition, they're products are truly amazing and so affordable too. First of all, I love how sleek the packaging is, it's simple but looks very luxury, it's hardwearing and you get that really satisfying clicking noise when you close it. Is that just me that loves that noise? Maybe.
This palette is so convenient for travelling, it's got enough shades that work well together to make a few different eye looks. The mirror is actually quite big so makes it super practical to apply makeup or just touch up on the go! The mix of shades are quite unique actually, they're all shades I've seen before, but never in a palette together.
The pigmentation of these shades is great. They're shimmery shades, but they're not full of glitter so not in your face, or all over your face by the end of the day. They're creamy, easy to apply and blend well. The lasting power of these eye shadows is great, I can wear them all day without them creasing. My favourite look at the moment is the lighter gold shade all across the lid, the darker coppery shade running through the crease and the white shade as a highlight on the brow bone and in the inner corner. I haven't actually used the silver shade yet, but it's a colour I'm quite wary of, so hopefully I'll use it soon.
