Strikeapose shape & shadows essence palette launch & giveaway!

For the last year I have been mysteriously working out in Germany and have had to keep this huge collaboration a big secret but now I can finally share that Strikeapose is bringing out a makeup palette and nail varnish as part of the essence cosmetics bloggers beauty secrets trend edition.

This has been such an exciting opportunity, a beauty bloggers dream?! It was such a fun experience, I loved every moment, and I just hope you love the palette and polish as much as I do! As you can tell I had an amazing time working with some awesome beauty bloggers and made some great friends. My Strikeapose shape & shadows essence palette has the signatures of all those involved in the bloggers beauty secrets trend edition collaboration.

My palette is called the shape & shadows eye contouring palette. It has 3 matt shades, 2 shimmer shades and also a primer/fixing wax. The 3 matt shades can be used on your brows as well as as eye shadows, the shimmer shades work lovely as eyeshadows but also as a highlighter and the prime/fix wax is great for keeping your eye makeup in place all day but also keeping your brows tidy. I also got a say on the brush so you have a spooly brush at one end to brush out your brows and a thin, soft angle brush at the other so you can fill your brows and do your shadow.

As well as my Strikeapose shape & shadows essence palette there is also my nail polish shade, a beautiful grey toned nude. It has a gummy gel finish and drys matt. The shade is called 03 All Eyes On Me and I keep wearing it all the time at the moment, I absolutely love it. The shade is chic, elegant and highly pigmented. You only need one layer for great coverage and it is very hard wearing.
