Here’s another sad story.
This palette is going back to Sephora, This will be the 2nd time in my entire life that I have returned a beauty/makeup product. The 1st was this Becca highlighter. It’s not that it’s bad, it just isn’t what I expected.
These look like shimmer/glitter powder shadows to me, I can’t find any information that shows otherwise. I was pretty shocked when I went in for a swatch and realized that these were a very thick, cream like consistency. I don’t mind cream shadows too much, I have quite a few Colourpop Super Shock Shadows so I am at least familiar with them. But cream definitely wasn’t what I wanted from this palette and the lack of bold pigmentation (like the Colourpop SSS have) made returning it a no Brainerd.
My swatches vaguely resemble the swatches on the Sephora website. I can almost guarantee that they used either a white or black base to get that color intensity. This is all fine and dandy if that’s what you’re willing to do but I am not. My skill level is not there and the amount of time I want to devote to either learning or applying is also not there.
I could’ve built up the swatches and made them look all fabulous and fancy but, you know, it is what it is. I’m going to make the same level of effort as I normally would
In the end, If you prefer thicker cream like shadows that you have to rub in to smooth out and like to apply over a base shade to bring out color intensity then this palette might work well for you.
I’d like to add that I think Kevyn Aucoin, as a person, was a visionary. I remember when his book “Making Faces” first came out and have nothing but respect for him and his accomplishments.
