Although I am not normally a fan of summer collections, Electric Tropics is certainly appealing with its neutral shadows, peachy bronze cheeks and a sheer orange lip.
On the day of the launch the SA was unfortunately doing a makeover right in front of the only summer display and was extremely put out when I asked if I could look at it. I was made to feel like I needed to leave and the SA didn’t want to serve me. Luckily another SA saw what was happening so asked me if I knew what I wanted, as I hadn't been able to have proper look at the collection I just bought the Rosy Tan eyeshadow quint (£40).
Rosy Tan is the darker of the two quints. It contains a frosty creamy white highlighter in the centre and a frosty sheer pink, deep burgundy brown with golden micro glitter (this shadow is not as smooth as the others to the touch, but it still applies really well) satin finish warm tan/brown (slight hint of pink), shimmery golden brown.
Unfortunately I could not get good pictures of this applied, so just trust me that it looks a lot better in real life!
I think this is a beautiful, versatile high quality palette. The shadows blend and layer with ease. They all have good pigmentation and you can go from a natural everyday look to the more dramatic. The warmth of some of the shades paired with the Burgundy hints of the deepest shade just add that extra edge to the look.
I bought this from John Lewis.
