Another apology for not making any new posts.. I’ve been super busy 😦 I barely have time to read blogs and check Facebook!!
Anyway, you won’t believe how long this article has been on my to-do-list. I ordered this palette last year (december) at BornPrettyStore! LAST YEAR. Meanwhile, it’s gone out of stock 😦 I bought it for 4 dollars back then, and you might be able to find some on eBay!
The packaging is a shiny black, with a silver-coloured print on it. Doesn’t look too shabby, but it doesn’t scream luxury either. It’s nice though that you can already see the colours!
Even in the packaging, the colours already look very bright and shimmery.. can’t wait to open it! It did take some effort to open it, but that might be because I’m very clumsy and I was careful not to drop the palette..
This just made me drool in anticipation to finally be able to touch the shadows..
And I wasn’t let down! The shadows feel extremely creamy, slightly powdery with a bit of fall-out, but the pigment is just to die for ❤ Even the lighter colours picked up great on my skin. (also, I had to use my right arm to swatch on, which is why the pictures aren’t great. Have you tried photographing your right arm with your left hand? Yikes!)
The pans give off a LOT of eye shadow at the time, so if you’re using a brush, make sure to tap off the excess!
I wiped my finger after every swatch, and even on the paper towel the pigment is incredible..
Oh, there’s also this little sponge applicator, which looks really out-of-place in such a large container.. Whatever! It’s not like I’m going to use this..
I’ve been using this palette for a while now, and the pigment is as good on the eyes as it is on my arm. Lovely, rich shades, that are great for a very bold look!! I’m in love 🙂
