Autumn Look: Look Beauty Mini Makeover Palette

As we have moved into September, a lot of beauty bloggers have started going crazy for Autumn shades of makeup. Eyeshadow wise I've noticed that MAC Cranberry is a very popular colour, as is the similar shaded Maybelline Color Tattoo in Metallic Pomegranate. I'll admit I'm pretty desparate to get my hands on both of these but as I'm trying to be good and not buy any makeup this month, I went in search of something similar in my stash.

I think I've found a pretty good dupe in the Look Beauty Mini Makeover Palette - Pretty Green Eyes version. I was pleased with this as it gave me a chance to use the palette for the first time. As you can see from the swatches, the eyeshadows have varying levels of intensity, with the darker colours being the most pigmented, apart from the matte brown colour on the end which is pretty impossible to use!

Not only is the plum shade similar to MAC Cranberry, I think the green shade could be a dupe for something like MAC Club. I don't own this eyeshadow either so I may be wrong but it's another eyeshadow I've lusted after so it's good to have something similar in my existing collection. The look I've created is using the Cranberry-esque shade all over the lid, with the green colour in the outer corner and crease. I also added a tiny bit of the light gold/champagne colour to the inner corners of my eyes.

I thought the dark, dusky pink coloured blush in this palette was pretty good for Autumn as I would normally wear a coral or lighter pink blush. This is fairly pigmented so you only need to use a little bit for a lovely flush of colour on the cheeks.

I used the brownish nude colour on my lips as I wanted to keep them fairly neutral since I was using quite strong colours on the eyes. You need to swirl your finger round these lipsticks quite a few times to pick up the colour but they look really nice dabbed on to the lips.

So overall I'd say this wasn't bad for £3 (sale price) since it contains some possible dupes for some £12.50 eyeshadows! You can buy this palette on the Look Beauty website here if you're interested.
