Jewels and Velvet







When I first spotted this Elizabeth Arden Jewels and Velvet Compact for Eyes in my local Savers store, I was extremely excited, but when I saw that it was only £1.99, I must admit that I was a little skeptical about how it would be. This is crazy cheap for an eyeshadow palette anyway, let alone one from Elizabeth Arden and so I figured the stock must be damaged or just a really naff product. 

That being said, I was more than happy to give it a go anyway, especially for that price and I must say I was really surprised! As you can see in the pictures above, the product isn't damaged, the compact itself is gorgeous, with a black stitched quilted design in a silky material and it's even small enough to fit in your handbag, perfect for those touch ups on a night out. 

If the compact hadn't already amazed me, I found that the colours really did! They are actually really highly pigmented, they blend amazingly well, and they even last a full day at work! My favourite combination so far has been an everyday touch on the smokey eye, using sandstone as a base colour with plum smoke blended into the crease, which I have had so many compliments on when wearing! Simple yet understated..

Overall I was really pleased with this product, I haven't found a fault with it yet, and therefore I'm guessing that it is just a discontinued line of stock,  I am even tempted to go back for a few more to use as stocking fillers for friends and family, yes I am already on that christmas hype! 

Have you tried this Elizabeth Arden palette? What did you think?
