|Wild About Beauty Safari Nights Palette: £29* (Available mid-March)|
Housed in a gorgeous deep-purple case, I opened the palette to be greeted with an array of rich bronze shades. The palette contains a collection of lip, cheek and eye products designed to create a sun-kissed look, including powder eye-shadows in Aine and Polly, créme eye-shadows in Buster and Edna, ultra sheer powder blush in Kitty, multi-purpose tint in Sandra, ultra dewy glow stick in Benny and nutrilips gloss in Sasha.
Upon application, the products were beautifully pigmented and were of a lovely, smooth texture. The crème eyeshadows create a sheer, shimmery eye, whereas the powder shades give a slightly heavier, yet no less pretty look; great for a subtle day-to-night makeup. The powder blush was way too dark for my pale skin, but fortunately when applied lightly under the cheekbones and at the temples, made for a perfect contour – and, teamed with the Ultra Dewy Glow Stick acting as a highlight, gave my face more definition and an instant glow. The stars of the palette for me were the Nutrilips Gloss and Multi-Purpose Tint: the tint looks beautiful on both the lips and the cheeks, and the gloss simply enhances my natural lip colour and gives the dewy look of a balm, as opposed to that very unflattering, sticky gloss look.
The Safari Nights Palette contains a versatile mix of products containing all the colours you need to create an easily wearable sun-kissed look all in one compact palette. It even made my usually pale self look like I’d been basking in the sun for a week; needless to say I can’t wait to use this palette when the sun finally shines!
