NOTE Cosmetics Luminous Silk Quattro Eyeshadows


I have been a HUGE fan of NOTE Cosmetics since it launched here in Ireland almost a year ago. I have tried so much from the budget brand and have yet to find something that I don't adore. Under the microscope today is the NOTE Cosmetics Luminous Silk Quattro Eyeshadows. 


A few weeks ago I was sent two of the NOTE Cosmetics Luminous Silk Quattro Eyeshadow palettes from the lovely PR team for NOTE to try out. They sent me 04 which has some stunning plum based shades and 06 which has the deep blue. I probably wouldn't have chosen these colours for myself. I am a divil for brown shades so it was a nice shove out of my comfort zone and I actually surprised myself with what I could do. 




As you can see from the swatches above the NOTE Cosmetics Luminous Silk Quattro Eyeshadow palettes are really pigmented. They are so, sooooo soft to touch and are super easy to blend. They are well named because they literally feel like silk. I didn't use any eyeshadow primer and the look I created still lasted the full day (a good ten hours) without budging. It didn't crease or settling into the socket which is rare when I have oily eyelids.


The look I created was a day look for some but quite extravagant and dramatic for my usual taste but I loved wearing it. It could easily be brought from day to night by adding some eyeliner and eyelashes. I lightly dusted the white shade all over my lid as a base and then packed it onto the inner corner to brighten and open up my eyes a little more. Next I applied the shade opposite the white all over my lid and blended it out. To make the look a little more smoky I applied the deep plum shade into my crease and underneath and blended it out well. Because I have hooded eyes I brought this up a little higher than the norm to create the illusion of a bigger and wider eye. 

I'm a busy mammy and don't always have time to spend on my makeup. I like something quick and something easy to do so as a result I usually avoid colours but I will 100% be reaching for these NOTE Cosmetics Luminous Silk Quattro Eyeshadows again and again. They come in a selection of browns and a black and grey one also. If you haven't tried anything from NOTE Cosmetics then YOU NEED TO. I mean, they are just sooooo good and so affordable. I feel like a broken record about them but I really love the brand.


The NOTE Cosmetics Luminous Silk Quattro Eyeshadows are €9.95 each and are available online here. If you wish to see them in person you can find your nearest stockist here
