Marzia x Winky Lux
Last Summer when Marzia announced her new eyeshadow palette in collaboration with Winky Lux it was an actual dream come true for me. The Natura Palette had every colour I love to wear and really made for one of the most beautiful looks of any makeup I own. The colour scheme was just so alluring and unusual, not to mention the makeup was just such high quality that the palette quickly became an essential part of my everyday makeup routine.
This year when the La Frutta Palette was announced, I just couldn’t wait to give it a try. Winky Lux is a beauty brand that I really love, if not one of my favourite places to go to get new makeup. They have amazing ethics as they are cruelty free and their eyeshadows are always super long lasting with pigments that are always just so shimmery and vibrant.
The first thing that I noticed as I unboxed my shiny new palette was the packaging. The designs that they create are always so lovely so it looks great on any dresser or vanity and the palette comes in this lovely slick box with a mirror so you can easily slot it into any handbag and do your makeup on the go.
After having opened the palette one thing that disappointed me was that unlike the Natura Palette last year, the La Frutta Palette is missing a blending brush. I honestly have no idea why they took the brush out of the palette this year but they kept the price the same. But I guess there are worst things in the world then not having a brush in your eyeshadow palette so not to worry.
There are five colours in the palette, each inspired by a different fruity hue.
The first one is pesca, a shimmery peach shade with a rose gold hint. The pigment is soft and glowy and probably the most understated in the palette.
Next we have anguira, a matte watermelon pink shade. To be honest I was expecting this colour to be quite neon but it’s actually quite rosy and dusky. The look it creates is very romantic.
The yellow shade is called limone and is a pastel colour. What struck me a lot about this colour was how the pigment was just so incredibly vibrant. I wasn’t expecting this whatsoever because usually lemon shades tend to be quite transparent. This particular shade however was anything but that. (Usually I use this as a base to set the colour scheme for my look with this palette.)
Mango is the name given to the metallic orange shade in the palette. This shade struck me as the most flattering and the most unusual. It adds a beautiful rusted hue and copper finish to your look and is probably my favourite in the palette.
Uva is the Italian word for grape and also the name of this deep purple shade. It’s relatively matte and is great for adding a smokey finish to your look.
Here and in the below image you guys can see the eyeshadow look that I came up with. Overall it’s super impressive how easily these colours blend together and there is just something so enchanting about the gradient that they create. The romantic glow it gives to your eyes is just perfect for the long summer evenings.
Having been using this palette for a while now I can honestly say that it stays looking so fresh all throughout the day and there are so many looks you can come up with when you use it. It’s rare that Winky Lux products fail to impress me and their eyeshadows are definitely among the best I’ve ever used.
Have you guys ever tried out this brand before? What do you think of the colours? I’d love to hear from you in the comments below. Thank you guys so much for reading and I’ll see you very soon.
