I always come across Une products on the Internet, especially on British blogs and Youtube videos. It’s a brand that I’ve never tried before until now. Une recently launched their “Rock by Une” collection introducing two new eyeshadow palettes and a mascara in order to achieve a bold and smokey eye look. A few weeks ago, I received the Grey Harmony palette from the collection.
Although I’ve heard and read great reviews regarding Une products, I didn’t really know what to expect, as I’ve never tried the brand before. All of their products are ecological with 100% ingredients of natural origin.
According to Une, this palette is great “for a chic sfumato that contrasts pearly greige and intense grey with an aubergine note” and “it brings out dark and hazel eyes”. Now, to be completely honest with you, I had absolutely no idea what sfumato meant. If you now feel that you lack of intelligence, like I did when I first read that word, here’s a quick definition for you: the technique of allowing tones and colours to shade gradually into one another, producing softened outlines or hazy forms. Do you feel less ignorant? I do.
The palette contains three colours: a shimmery aubergine, a matte grey and a shimmery greige. This trio is quite perfect for someone like me who isn’t very extravagant with eye looks. It is no surprise that I’m a fan of neutrals. These eyeshadows are so easy to blend and not overly pigmented as you can see in swatches. Of course, you can build up the intensity depending on the look you’re going for.
I’ve been using this palette a lot lately, especially that grey shade. It looks absolutely lovely in the crease with eyeliner along the top lashes and a brown eyeshadow on the lids.
Long story short, loving Une so far!
Have you ever tried any Une products before? Thoughts?
