I recently reviewed a couple of other 17 eyeshadow trios and mentioned that I’d been eyeing up Dolly Mixture. The lovely people at 17 then kindly sent me one! Happy days :-) Dolly Mix is a new trio that came out for the summer and boy are they summer colours. That shadows are bright and matte and for your pennies (£4.99) you get a candy pink, baby blue and pastel yellow. They really do look like ...erm... Dolly Mixture!
The shadows themselves are highly pigmented and super soft. So soft in fact that you run the risk of them becoming powdery so it is essential to tap any excess off your brush in order to avoid fall out. A good sticky base is useful too, I like NYX jumbo pencil in Milk as a base to really make the colours pop. The swatches below (with and without flash) are done without a base, you can see these aren’t for the faint of heart!
I love this little trio. My favourite way to wear it is with the yellow over the lid, pink blended in the crease and the blue on my lower lash line. I’ve worn it the past three weekends actually. Love it! Xxx
