Review: Harry Potter Eyeshadow Palettes (Part 2)

The closed eyeshadow palettes, showing the house artwork on the front. Slytherin has a metallic green snake and Hufflepuff a metallic gold badgerHaving got the Gryffindor and Ravenclaw palettes (you can see the review for them here), I had to get the Slytherin and Hufflepuff eyeshadow palettes that Boots released and complete the Harry Potter set. I wasn’t sure what to expect with these two as the other two seem to work quite differently to each other. Hufflepuff definitely looked the more wearable for me everyday but as I’m a Slytherin I had to get that one too. All four palettes cost £12.50 each and are in the three for two Christmas gifts offer, along with the rest of the Harry Potter range.

Each palette has six eyeshadows, with the Slytherin one being the only one with a true matte shade, though there is one in Hufflepuff that actually looks more matte than shimmery.

Blogmas 2018: Day 7!

I am so annoyed at the moment, somehow the posts I had prepared for this weekend and scheduled haven’t posted. Unless you’ve already seen this, then sorry for the double post and I guess it’s not showing up on my blog my end. It said at the time my scheduled post was published but I can’t see it on my blog.

It seems to end up that we only really see each other once a year, or most of us anyway, so it’s nice to catch up and have a meal out together. There’s always Christmas crackers, there will probably be at least one of those fortune telling fish and the hopping frog, and I have a proper Christmas dress this year, it even has Santa on it!

As we’re away (and I feel like I’m cheating with the advent calendar and opening these few days early) I’m not going to be drinking the teas till we get back, I’ll have to do a couple in each of the posts then. However I am looking forward to thing the first haircare product from the Holland and Barrett beauty advent calendar and I have a mini Draco Malfoy to go with Snape to start on the Slytherins in the Harry Potter Fubko Pop advent calendar.
