Regular readers will know I love making my own palettes so I asked for this Vidi Vici Lunch Box Quad palette (empty) and 4 refills. You can actually refill this with eyeshadows, blush, eyebrow colour, shader, lip colours – it’s very flexible. I was boring and went for 4 eyeshadows as I knew I wouldn’t bother using a brow powder, lip colours etc.
Now, this Lunch Box palette also comes in a 2 pan (soon to be discontinued) and a 1 pan design. It’s rather brilliant because each compartment is separate which means if you did choose to mix cream with powder products they would be completely separate so none of this mixing of products!
You also get a little mirror under each lid!
It’s a heavy weight and solid palette. I can highly recommend it if you ever get the chance to own one. The only downside is with a 4 pan, its weighty and quite big. If I really wanted to carry it around, I would, but it’s not as lightweight as a regular palette to carry around.
Shiny palettes though, remember, always get grease marks on them easily.
I picked four classic eyeshadow shades (to me!) that I would definitely wear and also tried different textures.
Shimmer Cream in Butterlilly, a golden glittery gold and a pearl eyeshadow in Tawny Taupe which is super neutral but so good to wear over the lid.
I also got a jewel texture shadow is demeter, a cool taupe brown and kohl black, a matte black. This black is SO creamy and rich I love it.
Day to day I use the taupe and a bit of the highlighter – that’s it! if I have time I can even tightline with black shadow (which I can’t do with other brands as they irritate) because it is so creamy and doesn’t cause any reddening or itchiness.
I would definitely buy more of these but since it’s not cheap (I think the palette was around £15 and the eyeshadows are £15 each) it won’t be for a while!
What do you think of these shadows?
