Screw my schedule, let’s have some eye candy!

The shadows are huge!  So although it’s expensive… you do get a lot of product for your money.

Here’s some individual shots of each pan…

Finally, check out the rich pigmentation in some skin swatches…

I am completely in love with this palette and would happily go so far as to say that it’s my favourite thing I’ve bought all year!  Which is quite an accolade considering it’s mid-November…

    I’m impressed w/ the colors (SO PIGMENTED AND COLORFUL!) and such but I prefer w/ palettes w/ different finishes. These are all shimmery looking.

    That’s it. I think azalea in my life. Do you remember if it’s very shimmery? I am after a strong fuschia, but matte if possible.

    Okay, so I know this sounds really weird, but I just realized, you’ve got really pretty fingerprints! And you’ve got the spiral pattern, which is pretty unusual… I know it’s weird, but yeah, I’m a little jealous at your fingerprints…
