Vanity Box surprised me with four gorgeous Ameli eyeshadows, two from the "Sweet Diamond" range (the light pink and bronzey-brown shade) and two from the "Sparkle Spot" range (the tangerine-orange and purple shadows).
Clock-wise: #504 Orange Fanta, #125 Luxury Brown, #511 Arabian Night, #180 Rose Rococo
First off, I really love their packaging, really sturdy and pretty. In terms of the quality of these eyeshadows, their pigmentation is great, especially the brown-bronzey shadow. They're not the best eyeshadows I own but not the worst either. They're all shimmery and super glittery eyeshadows with the exception of the brown-bronze eyeshadow which does not have any micro-glitters. If you're a fan of pretty glittery eyeshadows then you may love these!
Since these eyeshadows are packed with glitters, you may be thinking, what about the fall-out? To be honest I did not experience a ton of fall-out which was pretty amazing. It really all depends on how you apply these eyeshadows and how well you work with them. I really recommend either using a good eyeshadow primer or tapping the eyeshadow on your lids instead of using a sweeping motion.

- Beautiful pigmented colours
- Wide range of Ameli eyeshadows
- Pretty packaging
- Affordable and inexpensive
- Long-lasting even without an eyeshadow primer
- Smooth and silky shadows, not powdery or chalky
- Packaging too bulky for travelling
- May experience a little fall-out due to the massive amounts of glitters
...and here's just a makeup look I created using ALL four eyeshadows for a night out : ) A light wash of #180 Rose Rococo all over my lids and #511 Arabian Night in my outer corners to intensify the eyes and for a smokey effect. #504 Orange Fanta dabbed on the centre of my lids and in my inner corners of my lower lash line finished off with #125 Luxury Brown on my outer lower lash line.
