REVIEW & EOTD: Lacura "Define" Eye Shadow Palette - Lavenders...

If you're lucky enough to have an Aldi store near you, then keep your eyes peeled for this palette, especially if you love lavender eye shadows - it's a beauty, and it only costs $9.99. I meant to do this post a month ago when I first picked this baby up, but I was able to find another one just a couple of weeks back, so if you're lucky, you may still be able to grab one...

The colour range includes silvers too, a couple of neutrals and very pretty reddish brown - all the shadows are creamy, there's minimal fallout, they're all reasonably well pigmented, and have a delicate shimmer. There's a generous mirror inside the lid, and it comes with a couple of those fairly useless sponge applicators, but we won't worry about those at this stage ha ha...
Here are the swatches - not bad for the price, and the box is sturdy and stylishly glossy black, closes firmly too...

For this look I used the top four pans starting from the left, and applied them in the same order, from inner corner to outer. Base was Chi Chi Beauty School Drop Out Waterproof Gel Eyeliner, which I used on the waterline as well...


My foundation was DB Cosmetics Full Coverage 24 Hour (review soon!), cheeks were the reddest blush from the bhcosmetics Glamorous Blush palette, and lips were Lacura Lipstick in shade 83...

Can't help myself - safe to say I'm a fairly committed Aldi fan, and Lacura is sure upping their game in the makeup stakes. Can't wait to see what comes out next in their range 

Take care of you,
