The Perfect Autumn Eyeshadow!

Hey guys,

This eyeshadow by french company, Avril, might just be the perfect shade for autumn.

The shadow is Noisette Irisé* - a gorgeous, rusty, warm brown. As soon as I swatched it, I thought of bronzey, golden leaves and yearned for jumpers, cosiness and pumpkins! It works wonderfully alone all around the eye and blended out, and it'll go perfectly with the more autumnal shades of the Makeup Revolution Iconic 3 (Naked 3 dupe) palette. It's a very soft and creamy formula which applies well and blends beautifully. While it is quite highly pigmented, it's great to build up - in the photos I buffed a bit more into the outer lid and it looked really good! 

This mascara* and lipstick* are also from Avril, but after trying them out I found out they weren't vegan (really need to check the ingredients before putting things on my face!). They're both good, though!

Avril seems like a pretty cool company. Everything is cruelty free, made in France and affordable. They actually give a crap about the planet which is refreshing - looking to reduce packaging where they can and whatnot. Although some products contain beeswax, they offer a lot of vegan products. However, they seem convinced that only women wear make-up which is a little odd and dated... like, why the focus on women?

This eyeshadow palette of theirs looks perfect for the time of year. Definitely going on the wishlist!

Now that pumpkin spice season is upon us, I will be playing with make-up a hell of a lot more - especially this eyeshadow. What's your go-to look for autumn?
