I have heard other whispers about Accessorize launching a cosmetics range but wasn’t sure what to make of it – ANOTHER clothing store trying it’s hand out at make up!?
Still I am open minded. The Accessorize range is sold online, in store and I believe in selected Superdrug stores. I have two of the baked duos here to try.
My friend who loves butterflies would go ape over this packaging. I think its’ decent enough:
I am over this whole baked eyeshadow thing though. Everyone does baked eyeshadow and the ones who do it badly make a really hard crumbly shadow and go ‘that’s cos it’s baked’ when the point of baking should be to make it extra creamy and pigmented (like old school Shu Uemura eyeshadows!).
So onwards we swatch:
Huh pretty good!
Now make no mistake, these shades are all about the shimmer, something I apply in controlled doses these days, but at the same time they are pretty, pastel shades which think are wearable and great for spring. The duos compliment quite nicely too although I haven’t seen what the other duos have to offer.
I have some other bits by Accessorize beauty so will review soon, but I have to say the Baked Duos are nicer than I expected. Their ‘merged’ shadows look interesting too. But if you want to browse their large range, see here.
