It’s needless to say how happy I am to finally have gotten my greedy little hands on this palette. I originally bought it in Dublin last year but I forgot it on one of our trips to London as it always comes with me on travels. It really is the perfect travel palette for both its matte and neutral shades and the more fun ond punchy shades for weekends and party. The first edition palette came with a double sided eyeliner of Whiskey (brown) and Zero (Black) while this edition is in company of a brush instead – and with the mini sized primer potion like last time.
Personally I think it makes much more sense to have a brush in the palette (though it should´ve been a double sided brush) but I guess you get much more value of two eyeliners. Oh well, it’s not the worst change they could change! The brush is similar to the large shader brush E60 from Sigma in size but the hairs feel a bit stiffer. I did my swatches with the brush and I must say that it picks up a lot of shadow but I don’t think it’s the best for blending. I reckon that you can fit a couple of the mini SS217 that Sigma used to give out though ;)
Let’s get Naked!
- Virgin: A light shimmery beige which makes a beautiful highlight on the brow bone as well as in the tear duct.
- Sin: A frosty light champagne pink which is a great neutral colour to use as a base.
- Naked: A soft matte brown which can be built up to a richer brown, perfect for the crease.
- Sidecar: A shimmery and slightly glittery golden bronze with a bit of red in it.
- Buck: A dark matte brown which is also perfect for the crease.
- Half Baked: A yellowish gold with metallic shimmer.
- Smog: A beautiful greenish bronze with shimmer.
