When I first saw the Olivia Palermo collection that Ciate had released I was so excited – it all looked gorgeous but it was rather on the pricey side…
As you do I was browsing through TK Maxx makeup section, because of course you never know what you’re going to find there. I spotted they had a few lipsticks/nail polishes from the Olivia Palermo X Ciate collection. Then I saw this beauty. I picked it up, had a good look, it was untouched (unlike some of the makeup in TK Maxx) and I was delighted. Even better still, I turned it over to look at the price and it was £6.99. When it retails for £25. Think its safe to say I got myself a bargain!
Okay so actually onto the duo, can we just appreciate that stunning packaging? Its very ascetically pleasing in my eyes, although it does feel slightly on the cheaper side. Its extremely lightweight and feels sort of plastic like. However I’m willing to look past that as the duo is amazing. So lets start with the bronzer side of things. Its a very cool toned bronze, which I personally love on my skin tone, I can’t stand red toned bronzers. Its perfect for contouring and bronzing and I feel it really warms up my face well, without making me look like I’ve wiped mud across my cheekbones haha. Its also matte which I personally love because I can just go in with a highlighter later to brighten up my complexion. Onto the blush. To me, its a very dusky, subtle pink shade. Which again, I’m in love with! You can’t really go wrong with this, I just dab my stippling brush in this and pop it onto the apples of my cheeks and I think it helps to give me a bit of a healthy glow. Its not overly intense, but in no way is it not pigmented. Its a great happy medium, and I love it.
Have you tried anything from the Olivia Palermo collection?
