Hello Lovelies :)
Ever experienced that slight panic when told you're going out at in half an hour? You have no idea what to wear, let alone what your going to do with your face which has been hiding behind a lovely green face mask for the last 15 minutes. Well, I used to have this dilemma too, until this little beauty came into my life.
(Apologies for the mess it's in, it has certainly had a lot of use over the years)
Now for me, the one thing that makes me look 'done' is a nice strong smokey eye. This normally requires sifting through various dark shades thinking which type should I go for, Brown? Purple? Black? etc. Now when your in a hurry there is certainly no time for all that dilly daddling!! In swoops Ruby and Millie. This palette truly is a life saver, It has all the colours needed to create a quick smokey eye, natural or dramatic, and even comes with a highlight. It has great colour pay off (minus the beige colour which requires a little more work) and even comes with a very good quality brush. Although I love to experiment with different eye looks before a night out, I still come back to this palette time and time again. Plus, the super sleek Red Pouch it comes in makes you feel rather glamourous too;) or maybe thats just me...
A hint of Foundation, quick smokey eye, some Mascara and I'm good to go.
This particular palette was a gift for Christmas 2 or 3 years ago now, yet it's still going strong. I think they also do most of the colours individually in the Ruby and Millie line at Boots also.
(Some quick swatches)
A wonderful palette and definitely one of my HG's :P The first one I've mentioned on this blog in fact.
