Look what I got in the mail today...
It's a 120 Eyeshadow Palette! I'm gonna quote Sarah's blog name and say: ''Look at them pretty colors!''
There are many gold, bronze, gunmetal shades, great blue ones and greens... Oh, I love it!
I bet you want to know about the quality. Here it goes: these eyeshadows are all really pigmented. There's just one problem. They don't want to stick to my eyeshadow brush. I tried them on and I could get the best color when I applied it with a sponge applicator. Brush just isn't working with these.
* Packaging (palette comes in a fake leather case).
* Eyeshadows are really pigmented.
* Large range of colors.
* Strong scent (of fake leather and the shadows have this weird perfume scent that makes my head ache).
* Can't apply the eyeshadows properly with a brush (must use a sponge applicator).
This is all I can say at this moment. I'll have to test them a couple of times before I can give you a better review. You might have noticed that I mentioned price in the both pros and cons. Here's the deal: I purchased this palette on Ebay for $2.66 + $7.23 for shipping (HERE's my listing). That's a total of $9.89 (converted €7.24). The price changed since then and it's now $42.66 + shipping (see listing HERE). Now that's a *huge* price difference.
Maybe they'll be cheaper again soon, who knows. Until then, here are a couple of swatches. I have only eyeshadows on my fingers, no base/primer.
So, what do you think of these swatches? Would you consider buying this palette?
Thanks for looking!
