I'm not a Mac eyeshadow fanatic by any means but when I recently spotted these newly released Pearlfusion palettes, I fell a little bit in love with Greenluxe. Described as containing "shades of light peach, bright champagne with pearl, dark olive, blackened green with gold pearl and deep forest green with pearl" this is definitely my cup of tea. I've seen other reviewers mention that this isn't quite as "green"as they had expected from a palette with said colour in the title but for me, it's actually the perfect way to wear what can often be a youthful shade, in a sophisticated way.
These are cream shadows that can be worn either dry or wet, so far I've only worn them dry and I find them to be quite intense as they are so worn wet, I'd imagine they'll pop that bit more on the eyes. As you can see, I already used this before I could photograph it, such was my love for it and because I've worn them every day for the last two weeks already I've made a small dent in the bottom three shades. I particularly love that bottom shade, which apparently is akin to Mac Club. I also love that top peach shade (great as a highlighter too) and the middle champagne shadow, often just wearing both on their own as they're very pretty and flattering on. The only one I'm not hugely fond of is the second shade down, possibly because it's too sparkly for my liking but I do wear it for a little shot of gold in the inner corner of the eye. On that note, these are very shimmery so if you're a matte lover then these aren't for you.
Apologies for the terrible photo, my lighting was awful today
Trying to capture the iridescence of the colours on camera was surprisingly difficult. I hope these help a little bit! There are five other palettes available, in Pastelluxe, Brownluxe, Pinkluxe, Smokeluxe and Blueluxe, so there should be something for everyone.
These are 40 euro and available on counters now.
What do you think of the Pearlfusion palettes? Any of them taking your fancy?
