So to console my myself, I headed over to Sephora for some retail therapy where I found this baby.
♦ 84 Eyeshadows
♦ 60 Lipglosses
♦ 6 Blushes
♦ 1 Lipliner
♦ 1 Eyeliner
♦ 7 Crappy Makeup Brushes & Applicators
which I would eventually throw away
♦ Instruction Manual
And here's the swatch:
LEFT SHADOW PALLETTE
RIGHT SHADOW PALLETTE
Review: I have mixed reactions with this palette. The value for me is OK since it offers a lot of color variations that I can play with. When it comes to quality, this pallette is kind of disappointing considering it's from Sephora and they normally have better quality shadow palettes. Some of the shadows were a bit cakey and powdery in texture. Some colors were not very pigmented although, I could easily get a higher color if I need something a bit darker. I noticed that the palette on the right side was better in texture and more true to their color than the ones in the left.
The blushes are different story. I love the texture, the coverage, the color everything! I see myself using all these off more than the rest of the palette.
The lipglosses have a lot of variations in terms of color like the shadows. Texture is pretty OK. I'm not really that much interested in it
that's why I didn't swatch it as I prefer my tube lippies. I might have second thoughts, though, if they made them flavored.
So there you go. It a good gift to give your loved ones (or yourself) this holiday season. It's very good for travellers especially if you don't like lugging around cluttery single shadows and things.
