Let me introduce you to theBalm Bonnie-Lou Manizer and the new Foiled Again Foil Eyeshadow Palette.
I literally got my greedy makeup loving mitts on these only last night! In fact they were only released into public hands here in Ireland yesterday. And the awesome news is, we are the first to have them. They are officially available in store exclusively from Debenhams today the 27th of October. So if you like what you see, go go go 🙂
I wanted to show the theBalm Bonnie-Lou Manizer. (Incarcerated sister of Mary-Lou which I adore and did a blogpost on yonks ago here.) And the new Foiled Again Foil Eyeshadow Palette up close and swatched so I can hopefully help with your retail decisions.
We will have a look at Bonnie-Lou first.
She’s more warm and golden than Mary-Lou. You can see Mary on the left here. But she is not as dark as Betty.
As with all theBalm highlighters she is super pigmented, buttery and easy to apply to the skin. It would actually make a very pretty eyeshadow too.
Her recommended retail price is €22.50.
Next up we have the Foiled Again Foil Eyeshadow Palette.
This contains 12 shades. Eight foiled and then four matte, which I actually really appreciate. It means you can do a full look with one palette. I love all shimmer palettes, don’t get me wrong. But, it’s always nice to have a few mattes within too for crease work or to just use on their own aswell.
There’s a good mix of warm and cooler tones within the foiled eyeshadows and the mattes too!
The eyeshadows are talc free, super soft and extremely pigmented. I think I am going to have fun playing with this one.
I swatched them in their rows of four, from left to right:
The recommended retail Price for this is €34.
And there you have the new theBalm Bonnie Lou Manizer highlighter and the new Foiled Again Eyeshadow Palette. Do either intrigue you?
Let me know.
