So I’ve been eyeing up this collection since it was released but I’ve only just been able to purchase it. I love the original P.Louise base and I love colour so why wouldn’t love these. Now to get the base’ic brights.
This collection is available to purchase from the P.Louise website (see here) as the full collection but also as individual shades. Luckily I got mine during the 2 year birthday with 40% off and saved a decent bundle. As the full set, this will cost £38 but individuals cost £10 each. Shipping was £5 and took a few days to arrive but as I ordered during the COVID pandemic, I’m surprised it arrived at all.
My order came packaged in a padded envelop which I love ’cause it’s a little more unique than most companies. The full set does come in a beautifully designed winter collection box. I’m sure you know by now that we love a bit of cute packaging here. The tubes have a more colourful design which is perfect for finding your bases at first glance.
The Winter Base’ics Collection contains four pastel shades: vivid violet, hint of mint, touch of frost and winter rose. Base’ically a purple, a green, a blue and a pink-hehe see what I did there. You get 15ml of product in each tube which is plenty.
The consistency of the pastel bases is a little thicker than the original base but it’s not that much thicker. I only noticed when squeezing some out of the tube. When applying them, they behave the same as the original base. Remember to tap to set your base in place. All the shades are pigmented even for pastels.
I absolutely love these for cutting my crease just like the original base. The consistency means you can produce a very sharp crease and makes life a lot easier if you love using colour. You don’t need to use much for good coverage and pigment.
Unfortunately for me, like the original base I found that these do crease pretty quickly on my heavily lined lids. However, when you set them with an eyeshadow, they are unmovable all day. For me, these are perfect for those pastel shades that sometimes need help in getting there colours to shine.
Overall, I am so happy that I purchased the Winter Base’ics Collection from P.Louise Makeup Academy. The prices are the same as the original base and the performance is as good. They are easy to work with and offer good pigment for pastel shades.
