Hope that’s useful!

    I HAVE to have this. Gorgeous!

  2. Get Lippie says:

    It does look lovely, but I have to say, I’m not sure how many of those colours I’d actually use on a day to day basis …

  3. Emma says:

    Eurghhhh I want this!

  4. Leanne says:

    Mushroom and YDK are lovely colours.. but I’ve got dupes for most of the rest (and I actually have 3 of those exact colours in the Get Baked palette). I just don’t think I can justify the purchase for this one *sad face*

  5. @sophie – any boots points saved up?

    @get_lippie – really? that surprises me… bar the bottom row, I think it’s an immensely wearable palette!

    @emma – lol

    @leanne – no point purchasing if you can dupe it I reckon 😉

  6. Kim says:

    Oh I want this… curse being a very poor student :(

  7. Shela says:

    These shades are delicious. I’ve seen this palette a million times but I’ve never gotten the will to spend $44 on it. Maybe I’ll get it for Christmas though. Ooh ooh, or just as a gift to myself when I celebrate the end of finals =)

    Hahaha, I just talked myself into this. Yikes.

  8. Avril says:

    Thanks for this. Have looked at this palette but passed over it! Now seeing the colours swatched it does look amazing!! Oh dear….

  9. em says:

    oh I really need this palette- amazing swatches!

  10. Rhamnousia says:

    I love perversion…and jinx is my wonder shade, it comes out the same on my skin and on skins both lighter and darker than mine.

  11. Sophie says:

    Only about £3.00, Not enough! But my birthday and Christmas are coming up!

    Good times :)

  12. @Kim – :( Baked beans for 2 weeks?

  13. @Shela – haha, you’ve enabled yourself right infront of my eyes! Good job!

  14. @Avril – It is lovely, treat yourself!

  15. @Em – Thank you lovely xx

  16. @Rhamnousia – Jinx is ahmazing… flipside is a little disappointing in payoff. Thought it would be better.

  17. @Sophie – :( But yay for festivities!

    AMAZING swatches!!!

    This is so gorgeous. Of course I want this.
    Homegrown swatched looks very similar to graffiti from the deluxe, although it looks very different in the box.
    I love all the colours apart from 3 (sphynx, mcra and ydk) so if I bought it, I think I would deffo get a good use out of it.
    The UD deluxe palette is my very first palette, love it, but there is a big half of it which i never ever use, which is incidentally very similar to the 3 colours in this, which I know I would not wear.
    So I’ve got to be sensible, and wont purchase this.
    OmG, imagine if we could build our own UD palette, with mini shadows like this.

  20. […] (S) – I’m not a fan of greens (which is one reason why I prefer this palette to the BOSII), but I’ll try my hardest to be impartial!  This is slightly sheerer than the pan would […]
