REVIEW/SWATCHES: Topshop Beauty Mono Eye Shadows

I recently purchased three Topshop Eyeshadows through the Topshop website for $2 each on sale. Unfortunately these shadows are no longer available on their website, so I won't go into too much details about them.You can however purchase the shade Spaceport for $12. Price discrepancies? I don't know, but I feel as if Topshop shadow are randomly stocked and priced online. Holograph and Hallucination are available on the UK Topshop website.

These shadows are very pretty! From left to right the shadows are named: Hallucination, Pyramid and Holograph.

Hallucination is a lavender/silver duo chrome.

Pyramid is a gold shimmer.

Holograph is a white/silver/icy blue trio chrome.

I'm not the type of person to wear shades like Hallucination and Holograph, but sometimes it's just fun to experiment! These shadows are gorgeous, but the issue that I have with them is that you have to really pack them on the lids in order for them to show since the formula for these are thin. They're powdery, so eye shadow primer is a must, but for $2 each I cannot complain. These are probably best applied wet. I normally put on foundation first in my makeup routine, however I am unable to do that with these shadows since there is a lot of fall out. Again, I think I got a great steal for $2, but I would not pick these up for $12 (retail price). I would rather spend $12 and get two Makeup Geek or MAC eye shadows instead. Hopefully these will go back in stock (for $2)!

I am wearing Holograph on the lids and in the creases. I am also wearing Tarte's Tartelette in Bloom Eye Shadow palette in Jetsetter and Rebel in the creases and Leader in the outer Vs.
