There was a feeling of regret after I bought this, it was not a planned purchase, but I happened to spot it and couldn't resist the pretty array of colours.
I am fully aware that I can rarely get away with
wearing warm tones on my eyes which is why this is a "what was I
thinking" buy. This palette (£36) is a mix of warms and cool but the warms do
not err towards neutrality, instead they are blazing hot warms.
wear any of the warm shades....heck no.
I think there is always a risk
involved when brands put both warm/cool colours in the same palette and
I think given that the cooler shades are on the whole darker and are not
extreme cools, its more likely that someone who can wear warms could
pull this off as a whole rather than someone who looks best in cool
Dry swatches below,
The shades all have great pigment (though really come to life
when used wet) feel quite smooth and blend nicely.
The finishes are mostly
shimmer and I feel would be better placed on skin younger than mine.
There is a bit of colour fade (even with a base) and I find using too
many of the shades can lead to murkiness (as you can see from my photo
below) but overall for the price its a good quality palette.
