Hey Guys! 

I know I'm a little late on the bandwagon with this one, but I only got it yesterday! I ordered the Theodora palette from Debenhams online as an early birthday present from my parents (My birthday is on the 5th June by the way... a little bit early? Yep, but totally worth it!) 

First of all, can we take a minute to just look at the packaging? It's beautiful! It really gives the feeling of magic! It is holographic so shimmers amazingly in the light. I also like how the palette is made of tin so is sturdy and easy to clean. The palette consists of six new eyeshadows in the Build Your Own Palette form so are easy to remove so you can mix and match your eyeshadows. Two of the shadows, (Jealousy and Spell) are duos which have never been done in their BYOP line. 

The palette also features a Get The Look Card for Mila Kunis' character Theodora in the film. It is very helpful and thorough. I'll be doing a recreation of the look in an upcoming video so keep an eye out for that!

The eyeshadows themselves are AMAZING! They are so buttery and soft I actually let out a little squeal when I first swatched them. They are pigmented and have such a lovely array of colours that can be suited to any occasion. 
L-R: Jealousy(duo), Spell(duo), West, Bewitch, Beware, Broken
Broken: a lovely vanilla shade perfect for highlighting the inner corner or browbone. Slightly shimmery but it is very fine. Very pigmented.

Beware: A warm matte brown. Slightly orange-y toned. Very pigmented.

Bewitch: A cool dark brown with fine shimmers. Similar finish to Broken. Very pigmented.

West: Deep brown with slightly chunkier shimmer than Broken but still quite fine. Extremely pigmented!

Spell: The first of the duos. A yellow gold with chunky glitter, a bit of fallout, but still workable. Not as pigmented as the rest. The darker colour is an almost black shadow with chunky glitter, but less fallout. Quite pigmented.

Jelaous: The second duo. The lighter green is very pigmented and almost like a lime green with a silver-y shimmer. The darker green is also very pigmented with silver shimmer. 

The palette comes with a full size Super- Saturated High Gloss Lip Colour Pencil in Theodora. It is an incredibly pigmented cherry red with a beautiful shine. Lasts well on the lips and just a lovely lip pencil!

Also with the palette, you get a mini 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Zero. I have never tried these eye pencils before, and I have no idea why I didn't! These are so soft and pigmented but stay on for ages! Love <3 

All in all, this is a fabulous palette that is definitely worth the €36 price tag (which is actually an insane deal when you think of it!) Snap it up while it's still available! 
I hope you liked this long post and well done if you got to the end, I just love this palette so much! 
xoxo, Emma
