“This palette is just darling, dahhhhling.”
Why, yes, I have been watching too much Bravo.
What gave it away? Was it the way I said “dahhhling” like Lisa Vanderpump from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Because that’s how this new spring eyeshadow palette makes me feel.
With its cute crop of neutral browns, beiges and a dreamy pinkish peach, this palette has adorable written all over it.
No, really, it does. Right there on the front of the packaging. “Adorable.” Says it right there.
Anywho, don’t these six powder shadows look great together? I can see them working in a bunch of neutral looks.
Like this here pinkish brown smokey eye I’m sporting today…
So I know that two of these colors look pretty glittery in those swatches (down at the bottom) and their pans, but for some reason that glitter isn’t obvious on my lids.
It’s a little strange… The glitters look almost matte (at least on me). I don’t mind at all. It’s just not what I expected. I think of this entire palette as matte.
These shadows remind me a lot of Tarte’s. Like Tarte’s shadows, they’re moderately pigmented and easy to blend, and the powders themselves seem similarly fluffy, too, so if you aren’t careful about unloading any excess from your brush first, you might also get some fallout…
I wasn’t careful enough about that today, and I ended up with shadow all over the place (whoops!). Good thing I did my eyes before applying foundation.
You know, I like this palette, especially for everyday wear. I think it’s cute, wearable and fabulously priced (it’s only $7.50!). Just watch out for that fallout, and be prepared to do a little layering if you want something intense.
