I am becoming obsessed with palettes, as seen in the palette swatch trend that seems to have taken over the blog lately. I have been loving buying little eyeshadow houses where all the colours are awesome and go well together, and the Complement Eyeshadow palette from the new Generation Q collection is no different.
I had been sent a few pieces from the collection, but when I saw the Complement Palette I whipped out my purse and took it home with me. The mix of colours create a lovely smokey plum look (which I am loving lately!) and I like the addition of a Liquid metal next to the powder eyeshadows. The makeup artist at Illamasqua was lovely, as they always are, and tried some of the colours on my eyes. I loved the look of the creamy Focus mixed with Forgiveness in my crease, and seeing it on really sealed the deal for me!
Slink is a frosted champagne beige which is similar to other colours I own, but I really can never have enough of these shades. The second shade along is Focus, a medium brown Liquid Metal with cool toned shimmer that almost appears duochrome to me. My favourite shade is Forgiveness, a matte plum that is so pretty in the crease. Last but not least is Queen of the Night, a deep purple with an almost black base that I am looking forward to trying out as an intense smoky eye.
I am happy to add another Illamasqua palette to my collection (see my Neutral palette review here!) and since I've been obsessed with plums and purples, I will be getting a lot of use from these shades.
Illamasqua have recently dramatically dropped their prices (causing me to drop cash there more frequently!) so this palette now retails for $53 AUD at Myer. There is another palette available, so if purple isn't your thing, I'd still check out the new collection! As I mentioned, I was kindly sent some other pieces from Generation Q so keep your eyes peeled for reviews of those, coming at you soon.
What do you think of these shades?
