Greetings and salutations, mon amie. I wanted to quickly show you the new Clinique Milly Pretty in Prints Palette ($36) in action.
What do ya think? I followed the tutorial that comes with the eye and cheek palette this afternoon, and the whole thing took only about 10 minutes to do.
The palette comes with four shadows and a blush; the shadows contain just the right amount of pigment, and all of them are super easy to blend. Heck, I’d call the palette downright perfect if it wasn’t for the matte brown shade, which left mad fallout on my cheeks when I used it as a liner today (which is what the tutorial suggests).
As for the blush…I love it! It’s like a sheerer, less golden version of NARS Orgasm.
Too bad about the fallout from the matte brown shadow, but it doesn’t doom the palette for me. Next time I’m in a hurry or need to look conservatively sharp, I’ll look for Milly.
PRICE: $36 (also comes with a mini-drawstring pouch)
