Ben Nye Fireworks Fantasy Wheel

Ben Nye never disappoints - it always offers high quality products at very reasonable prices - so it's no surprise that this is a brand that's been a favourite with both TV and theatrical make-up artists worldwide.
Ben Nye also offers a lot of very handy palettes that come in the form of a wheel - these are very practical and versatile.
I already own the fabulous Creme Rouge Wheel and just got the gorgeous Fireworks Fantasy Wheel from my sister a couple of days ago - thx sis!
The wheel contains 6 elegant and luminescent cremes for the eyes, cheeks and lips.
The colours are: pearl/white, gold, silver, copper, bronze and rose. All six shades are very vibrant, pigmented and metallic. They go on very smoothly due to the creamy consistency.
These shades can be used alone or as an eyeshadow base. The rose colour looks great as a lipstick and blush; the gold and pearl shade are brilliant for highlighting.

Swatches:
I also wore the gold, copper and bronze on my eyelids, with the pearl shade on the inner corners of the eyes. The rose colour on the lips:
As you can see the wheel is subtle enough to be used for every day make-up looks.

If wearing these alone on the eyelids you will need to apply a thin layer in order to avoid creasing, which will then need to be set with a light dusting of translucent powder.
The wheel is great for adding a lovely glow to the skin and creating a very subtle sun-kissed look. It's also fantastic for quick make-up on the go as you can do your entire face with this handy gem.

Do you use any Ben Nye wheels?
