Accessorize Eyeshadows: Platinum, Molten & Chocolate Fondant Swatches

Top -Platinum, Left - Molten, Right - Chocolate Fondant
Accessorize eyeshadows are definitely amongst some of my favourites; the texture is smooth, pigmentation is great and I really like the slim compact packaging which makes it easier to store and flick through if I have them standing.
Here are a few more shades that I have accumulated:



Chocolate Fondant

Platinum is an interesting mix of silver with bluey-green tones, not what I had envisioned by something named Platinum, but lovely all the same. The finish with this is slightly frosty/metallic.

Molten is a beautiful burgundy with interesting warmth to it that makes it appear it slightly browner in some lights. This one isn't frosty like Platinum, it has more of a sheen finish. Quite a pretty and versatile shade.

Chocolate Fondant is a rich, warm brown. The texture of this one is a bit more butter-crumble? What I mean is that it is buttery, but when taking some from pan to brush it seems to come off with slightly particle bits (kind of reminds me a little of MAC Solar bits). It doesn't really effect the pay-off, but it looks a bit more dimensional rather then flat chocolate and gives it an added slight metallic kind of effect.

  1. The swatches look lovely and such pretty packaging! x

  2. They look so pretty, I still have not had these show up in the Accessorize stores near me nor the Superdrugs! I might have to order online but I want to make sure I avoid the frosty shades, so thank you for the review/pictures, really hepful :)

    I do like the packaging, it's pretty and in keeping with the Accessorize brand.

    Hi Replica
    It is a bit surprising that their own stores don't even have some of the range, hopefully they will roll it out to more.
