Review:Boulevard de Beaute  Look in a Box Palettes 

I was very excited when I saw these in Lidl and really couldn’t decide which one to get when I was in the shop, so I ended up buying them all. I had never heard of this brand before and so googled it before I went to the shop and the results came back with blog posts in various languages. I used Google translate to translate them and also had a look at the photos of the products. I found some videos on YouTube too. First of all, I thought I would just buy the natural shades (Charming Naturals palette) seeing as I am always wearing natural colours and then I wanted to buy the purple shades (Amazing Smoky Eyes palette). When I was in the shop I looked at the Pretty shades palette and decided that I’d actually be likely to wear all of the shadow shades available. The palettes cost €3.99 each, and each one has six eyeshadows and a double ended applicator. There is also an application guide with ideas on looks for each palette which I think is quite a cute idea. There’s a mirror as well so you can use them wherever you are.

7/10

After trying the shades, I am disappointed with the palettes as the eyeshadow is very flyaway and most of the colours don’t look pigmented at all when on (except perhaps the dark shades) . If I was to buy any of these again, I think that I would actually buy just the Amazing Smoky Eyes palette , because the shades are darker and contrast much better with my eye colour than the other shades, although each shade is soft to apply.
