During the holidays, it was sold in a three-piece set, most ideally as gifts. As it is being sold on it's own, I honestly think it is a bit of a rip-off though. Maybe this post can help you decide whether or not you may want it while it's still up for sale. Check it!
I actually did bring this with me on holidays since it's a very sleek palette. It is a 6 x 6 inch height and width square, with a less-than centimeter depth, so definitely able to stow away flat without complaint. Also, made with hard cardboard which I find very sturdyand durable.
You gotta dig the packaging though. Seriously, who doesn't love gold over a royal violet?
This is what it looks like inside, minus the ghetto scotch tape. It's there so I can keep track of what the eyeshadow names are. For some reason, that's important to me, so when companies create a separate plastic sheet instead of print the eyeshadow names on the actual packaging, I find it super annoying! *huff And yes, I taped the sheet down so the lid can close comfortably too.
Here we are, up close and personal. You can tell I've had my grubby paws in it a bunch. You get ten mattes and six shimmers. I know I can make a lot of different looks with this palette by itself.
Also, with these shadows, I can tell that these are more earthy tones, and will most definitely, compliment any skin tone.
Swatches, shall we?
|From left to right: tickled pink(matte), playful plum(matte), radiant rosewood(matte), and sage advice(shimmer).|
|Second row: beaming bronze(shimmer), grateful grey(matte), alluring almond(matte), and hot cocoa(shimmer).|
Hot cocoa is one of my favourite shades.
|Third row: ideal ivory(matte), roasted chestnut(shimmer), buttercream frosting(shimmer), and pumped up purple(matte).|
|Last row: marvelous mocha(matte), truly taupe(shimmer), peachy keen(matte), and blissful brown(matte).|
I do like the versatility of this palette. I find I'm using it a lot, and would recommend it to any one who likes to wear earthy tones, and casual daytime looks.
Already have this one, or think you'll pick it up?
