Addiction Es Paradis eyeshadow palette

After a short forced break due to ridiculous work travel schedule, I’m back with a beauty: Japanese brand Addiction’s summer eyeshadow quad, Es Paradis.

First warning: this is sparkly. Not glittery, with coarse particles, but heavily sparkled with superfine shimmer. If you don’t like sparkly eyeshadows this is not for you. However, if you do love a bit of bling this palette is a winner.

Second warning: the shades are much more gorgeous in real life than in pictures. The texture is also excellent, at least in the palette I received. The four colours are a glittery purple with blue-silver shimmer, a gorgeous aqua blue-green, a matte cream shade and a stunning sparkly sea blue.

The first set of swatches was photographed outdoors in indirect sunlight.

The next set was pictures in the conservatory, indirect sunlight.

The combination of colours might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but my final verdict is overwhelmingly positive.
