Famous by Sue Moxley

Hey Dolls :)
I was recently browsing in Superdrug with Mamma Carr when she started swatching loads of shadows in the Famous by Sue Moxley line. In all honesty I had never paid much attention to any of the Famous products but when I saw the beeee-utiful colours on the back of my mums hand I had to have a look. I picked up three shadows and honestly I can't stop looking at how pretty they are! The three I picked up are all shimmer colours, I wasn't particularly impressed with any of the matte shades. The shimmer shadows are unbelievably buttery soft. They blend like an absolute dream and also have beautiful contrasting colours running through - exactly my kind of shadow!

Shade 17

Shade 17 is a really lovely brown with a copper shimmer running through. I think this would look beautiful blended into the crease with a really neutral colour on the lid like naked from Urban Decay. It has an almost metallic appearance when you catch it in the right light.

Shade 14

Oh my days I love this shadow! What I love most about is the fact that it looks really quite dull in the pan - it isn't until it is swatched that you realise how lovely it really is. As you can see there's a really lovely purple shimmer running through the shadow with the base being a browny-plum.

Shade 12

This was the shadow that originally caught my eye - of course it's a purple! It has a beautiful electric blue running through the shadow - my favorite! I just could not get a good photo of shade 12 that shows the shimmer so here's a blurred one where you can see just how bright the blue is...

I am honestly so impressed with the quality of these shadows, they are only £4 each which I think is a great deal for how soft and pigmented they are. I should of said that each swatch is taken after only one swipe. There are also shadow quads for £9 that look beautiful which I want to go back and have a look at.

Have you tried any Sue Moxley products?

  4. Oh my goodness! I agree that Shade 14 doesn't appear to be very special in the pan but it is GORGEOUS swatched on your hand there! x
