17 Limited Edition Vintage Eye Palette in Pretty Pastels

I thought I'd give you a quick look at the 17 Limited Edition Vintage Love Pretty Pastels palette. K's previously shown you the Metallic Nudes palette.

First of all I have to say that I don't really pick up many palettes. I'm not usually convinced by the colours in a lot of sets and I have to admit I kind of felt the same about this, but as it was on 3 for 2 I thought I'd give it ago.

Also how cute is the packaging and the actual layout of the shadows.

I don't own many pastels colours so was quite keen to give it a go for spring - just to get some a nice fresh look.

All the colours a shimmery - which isn't also my thing, but I guess it works with pastel shades.

(no flash)

The shadows are not particularly pigmented, except for the dark purple. Which is a bit of a shame, but I think this can be a problem with pastels shades.


The shimmery is picked up really well by the flash.

Overall I really quite like the little palette and they blend in quite nicely. I thought I would show you a quick EOTD using the colours. I kept it quite simple really as it was only for work.

I've used the lilac over the lid with the dark purple in the crease and to blend in. I also used a little white on the inside corners of my eyes.

In the picture I've also used:

  • Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua in B10 Beige

  • Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC-1

  • Benefit Erase Paste in Fair

  • Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder

  • Benefit Benetint

  • Accessories Bronzer in Golden Sands.

  • Palmers Lip Butter in Dark Chocolate and Peppermint
