I have been meaning to do this review for the longest time. Well, since June at least! Back then I stumbled across a gorgeous new make up brand whilst browsing Harvey Nichols (you know, like you do!). The brand is Dianne Brill, who was once a muse for Thierry Mugler and a favoured model of Jean Paul Gautier and Vivienne Westwood, before she turned her hand to designing and styling for the likes of Duran Duran, The Rolling Stones and Prince.First of all I just want to say that I was completely and utterly sucked in by the packaging. It is just so sexy in a beautiful way, not trashy at all. I mean, the eye shadow is called Eye Lingerie, which is very fitting with Brill's saying of 'slip it on' which is printed under the eye shadow pan.

So packaging wise, it is all cosy in its little faux matchbox, which when opened, reveals an irresistibly cute silver compact, decked in a fishnet design with ribbon. When you flip open the shadow you get a really decent sized mirror and a very decent sized eye shadow pan (see the above photo for how much bigger it is than a MAC eye shadow). I looked at all the shadows carefully, as I have so many, and I decided that Peekaboo Lace was to me the most original. I honestly have never seen a colour like this before in my life. In the pan it looks pink but it's also got completely gorgeous gold veining throughout it. When on, you get a truly unique pinky-peachy-gold. It is just so, so stunning. The texture is silky smooth and highly, highly pigmented. This is so important to me. I have only worn it once, for an event and with just one layer it looked amazing, oh and blended like a dream (but of course, I always wear a base anyway, UDPP, Too Faced etc). Ingredients wise Dianne Brill seems to be ahead of the game. According to ELLE UK:

'Dianne Brill launches a beauty range which isn't just a pretty face. With ingredients including simulated snake venom, freshwater pearls and more vitamins than a chemist, this brand has brains too.'

So what more can I say? Have I convinced you enough? If I was truly nitpicking the only con is the price- I think it was about £17. I have never spent that much on an individual eye shadow before. But then again, you can see how much bigger it is than the MAC eyeshadow, and of course, you get the added bonus of the mirror etc. So yes, truly in love with Dianne Brill thus far. Check out the brand for yourself here and as always, let me know what you think!
