Welcome to day two of the MR Salvation Series – 7 palettes in 7 days. As this is going to be a week long journey focused just on this series of palettes I don’t want to repeat myself too much, so if you want to read a general review of the quality of these eyeshadows you can find it here in Day 1 of the series.
DAY 2: Girls on Film
This is a beautiful neutral palette. Do I have similar colours to these in other palettes you might ask? Yes, I am sure I do. Do I love the combination of complimentary mattes and shimmers offered here for quick, daytimes looks or soft, romantic night looks in one single, convenient location? Absolutely.
Again, I am going to cut this palette in half vertically and address the left 9 shades first.
These shades are what I would describe as subtle, brightening colours. I think they create a romantic look and I love the way the three matte shades here perform in the crease or as transition shades. The gilded gold colour called ‘frenzy all down your spine’ (swatch 6) is lush and offers a warm richness to this palette which I love.
The right side of the ‘Girls on Film’ palette is a still neutral, but it has a bit more punch. The first two shades, ‘take your picture,’ and ‘polaroid heaven’ are the kind of warm, bronzy colours that I adore and are so pigmented. You have everything you need here for a dramatic, smokey eye including a stunning gun-metal silver in ‘hold tight’ (swatch 6). Again, the cream matte shade called ‘girls on film’ has not swatched well – it just matches my skin tone too closely! The only disappointing shade in the whole palette is actually one of these shimmer shades on the right side called ‘lipstick over the lens’ (swatch 4). I don’t know what the deal with this shade is, but it seems to be quite hard in the pan and I have a lot of difficulty getting it to pick up on a finger swatch or with a brush. This is unusual because normally the MR shimmer shades are soft and buttery. It is certainly an anomaly in my experience.
Overall, this is a lovely neutral palette with really wearable colours in a mix of cool and warm tones. So pretty for every day wear.
So, that is ‘Girls on Film’ 🙂 You can find this palette at Makeup Revolution if you want to check it out for yourself.
