[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] I’ve been curious to see the new Prada make up line up – I remember it the first and second times around so it’s very interesting to see it in its third iteration. Digging up the stop-start history of Prada beauty isn’t simple – from my own website, I can see I spoke in 2009 about some make up wipes (I remember buying a load of Prada beauty from Harrods in the sale and not sure why I haven’t documented it) but research shows that a prior line emerged in around 2004. I just have a memory from neither of these years of a small line that was really hard to get hold of in maybe 2013/14 – any ideas?
I’ve got both an eye shadow palette and a lipstick – neither of which I’d necessarily have picked for myself but fun to try nonetheless. The packaging is just beautiful – I love it – and both pieces are refillable.
The shade is Mahogany – please notice how the brand has built in the iconic Prada triangle to the tip. I love this level of detail although I can’t say that it makes the lipstick the easiest to apply. It glides nicely over the cupid’s bow but needs a bit of attention to other lip curves. The finish is a soft matte.
I’m wearing a bit of balm underneath because I don’t want any staining but the comfort level of the Prada Monochrome Weightless Lipstick is high and it’s super smooth on the lip. The lipsticks are £40 each, with refills costing £30 HERE. There are 13 colour options.
Once again, the packaging is perfect – it’s just so neat! This is the Prada Dimensions Durable Multi Effects Eyeshadow in Pulp. Individually, I love the colours but I’m just not sure how I’d put them together on my face.
Refillables have become much less bother now – the shadow holder pops out of the case so easily – no tugging or wrestling necessary.
Here’s how the palette swatches up – the pink and the metallic taupe shades are delicious but I don’t love the other two. I feel like I already have them in other palettes. What do you think? The palettes are £65 and refills are £50 each with six colour ways to pick from. Maybe I’m being to harsh – I’ll have to experiment further I think. You can find the shadows HERE.
