If you’re a makeup artist you may already be familiar with Louise Young and probably have at least one of her renowned makeup brushes in your kit.
Louise initially started creating makeup brushes for makeup artist’s and to say that she has a talent for this is an understatement if you’re a fan of Zoeva or MAC prepare to be a super fan of Louise’s brushes, yes they are that good and well known within the industry since then the brand has grown to include makeup and accessories.
Today’s review is of the recently released eye shadow palette festival, this versatile palette contains a trio of shadows that capture that bronzed goddess festival look perfectly. The palette contains 2 matte shadows and one pearl the shades combine divinely together to create a multitude of looks.
All of Louise’s makeup is packaged in sleek brown hard plastic cases and whether it’s shadow, blush or highlighter all contain a mirror which is the full size of the tray. The shadow palettes in general are all uber flat which makes them perfect for slotting into bag pocket’s or stacked up within a kit. It also contains a sable brush which although is a mini size works fine for touch-ups on the go.
The pigmentation across all the shades was excellent, the colour pay off even in the lighter shade moon shadow was fantastic. The finish was consistently smooth and even on all. After Louise’s stunning first palette release the Essential Collection which consisted of five perfectly tailored neutral shades I expected no less really. (read Pixiwoo’s Essential Collection review here)
The shadows are highly pigmented and blend out beautifully. The texture satin smooth, the formula is soft, rich, and creamy and can be layered up to create something stronger.
All the shades proved extremely durable lasting comfortably between 6-7 hours before starting to fade or crease.
Tipi | A rich luscious copper bronze with a slight lift but no obvious glitter. Moon shadow | A velvety smooth neutral matte cream. Grain | A full earthy rich neutral matte brown.
This palette has fast become a firm favourite, If your a makeup enthusiast Louise Young is definitely a brand to try developed by Louise herself who has made up some of the most famous faces in the world, working in film, fashion, television and theatre you can expect extremely good products. I purchased my palette via the lovely PAMS (just the most amazing makeup shop/online store ever….) you can also find Louise Young prodcuts online, via Selfridges or other select retailers.
