I'd not ordered from Bath & Unwind before but postage was pretty quick and a couple of days later this little thing of beauty turned up in the post:
|BECCA Enigma Palette|
Becca's description of Enigma; Create a bold, intense, smoky eye with the Limited Edition Enigma Palette. These velvety smooth and highly pigmented powders glide on effortlessly and contain microfine shimmer for the sublets of sheen.
The palette contains two taupey/grey shades (Amure and Surah) and a dark charcoal shade (Silesia). Amure is described as a soft fawn colour and is matt, Surah is described as a mauve/mushroom and is the only shimmery shade of the three, and Silesia is described as a dark smoke.
|L-R Amure, Silesia and Surah|
I've only had chance to play with it a couple of times since I got it but I'm really impressed with how beautifully silky and pigmented all of the shades are. They apply amazingly well and blend with absolute ease. Lasting power seems to be fantastic too, no creasing or fading. Amure and Surah both look great on their own and I can create an everyday, fairly natural look quickly and easily with them. Silesia looks lovely when it's used as a liner and I haven't tried it yet, but I imagine it would look pretty and create quite an intense smoky eye when used on the the lid.
As you've probably guessed, I'm over the moon with the Enigma palette. I put off getting it for a while but I'm really glad I finally ordered one because it's something I can see myself reaching for often. I can't wait to play with it some more over the next few days!
Does anyone else have the Enigma palette? What are your thoughts on it?
