Remember how I said I’m a sucker for all things metallic when it comes to eyeshadow? You can imagine then the alacrity with which I clicked ‘Add to Cart’ when my favourite beauty website Cult Beauty ever so casually suggested I check out Laura Geller’s Delectable Palette, a set of two eyeshadow palettes (one cool and one warm) that features the most delicious baked metallic eyeshadows I’ve seen in ages.
We’re talking about 14 amazing shades that look like little glazed cupcakes here, people – this stuff is impossible to resist. The shades are a dream come true – each one wears like a subtle wash of colour that can be built up to any intensity you like when applied straight out the pan, but it’s when applied with a damp eyeshadow brush that these babies really come alive.
And now let us take a moment to appreciate the sheer gorgeousness that is @lauragellerbeauty's The Delectables eyeshadow palette in Delicious Shades of Cool. I am going to have so much fun with this baby! . . . . #makeup #laurageller #baked #eyeshadow #newbeauty #metallic #shadow #gorgeousness #beauty #beautylover #delectable #cooltones #wetordry #justlanded #makeupjunkie #eyeshadowpalette #beautyreview #makeuplover
Think sophisticated, elegant metallics, the kind that feature a gorgeous hint of sheen without ever being over the top, no matter how much you pile the stuff on – this is not the glittery metallic palette of your teenage years, the kind that had chunky sparkles which ended up all over your face by the end of the night, that’s for sure.
The palette is incredibly versatile, too – there are low key shades for beautiful work-appropriate looks that feature just a hint of shimmer and plenty of deeper, richly pigmented ones for when you want to amp your look up, whether it’s for a special occasion or just because.
I’ve been reaching for this one every day in the week since I received it, and it’s made putting on my makeup every morning a joy – isn’t that why we wear it in the first place?
