I got this as part of a swap with Cuttibebe and I was very excited because it's my first BB item. Can you see that it's broken? I pulled it out of my makeup case too quickly, good thing the shadows stayed in one piece =p
This palette is very pretty in terms of neutrals/nudes. I can't seem to get enough neutral colors especially because I teach. Some people might think this palette is rather blah because the colors don't pop out.
The palette comes with 6 shadows and a liner shadow. The shadows are (from left-right), Nude Beach, Nude Mist, Naked, Nude Glow, Mica, Nude Spice and Espresso. The Naked and Espresso shades are matte while the rest have some sort of shimmer in it. The Nude Mist is supposed to be the Shimmer Wash shadow but it appears more matte.
I love how the colors apply so smoothly and evenly. The shadows are super soft and if I'm not careful, I might get it everywhere. The brush is great for the palette as it picks up the perfect amount of shadow in 1-2 swipes.
Although the colors are perfect for those neutral OL looks, I'm not particularly fond of this palette. I apply the shadows at 7am and come lunch time, the shadows have turned into a muddy brown shade. Is this oxidizing?? I've tried touching up when this happened, but in the end, it didn't work out...Tim even asked why my eyes looked like they were bruised!
I wish the shadows didn't do that because I really love the colors. Maybe I'll try again with a different primer, but for now, the current neutral palette I reach for would be the NYX shadows and the Lunasol palette from the Anniversary Set.
