Sometimes you gravitate towards someone or something strictly because of his/her/its apppearance.
And there’s nothing wrong with that…

But when the carpet matches the drapes (giggity…) in terms of beauty and quality…oh sweet Mother of God, the joy!

Can you tell I like this palette already? Yeah, I do like this palette a lot. I secretly hoped I wouldn’t, because it’s hella expensive and I wanted to hate it so that I wouldn’t be tempted to buy the rest of the “Eyes Are The Window” palettes but..damn. That plan backfired.

Anywho…I managed to snatch this beauty in a sale (thank you Jesus…) over at www.beautybay.com and I haven’t looked back ever since. Nor have my clients that tend to get mesmerised by it. But without further ado, let me show you the…stuff.

The palette consists of 12 eyeshadow shades, ranging from nudes to greens,purples as well as a navy blue and a carbon. Let’s analyze this bitch!

L-R : Pink Diamond, Topaz, Garnet, Rose Quartz, Aquamarine and Emerald

 

First row:
Pink Diamond : light pink beige with same color shimmer
Topaz : warm tone beige with a satin finish
Garnet : wine/burgundy brown with red shimmer

Second row:
Rose Quartz : warm toned baby pink with orange undertones and a satin finish
Aquamarine : light mint green with a satin finish
Emerald : dark forest green with green shimmer

Out of those six, only “Garnet” struggles a tiny bit with its pigmentation. Moving on…

L-R : Amethyst, Tanzanite, Midnight Quartz, Moonstone, Sapphire and Black Diamond

L-R : Amethyst, Tanzanite, Midnight Quartz, Moonstone, Sapphire and Black Diamond

 

Third row:

Amethyst : lilac with light blue shimmer
Tanzanite : mid-tone purple with light blue shimmer
Midnight Quartz : dark greyish purple matte(?) finish

Forth row:

Moonstone : light cream with a metallic finish
Sapphire : navy with light blue and silver shimmer
Black Diamond : carbon grey with silver shimmer

The only shade that is really disappointing from those six and the palette in general is Midnight Quartz. The pigmentation is close to non existent and the color comes of muddy and really different to how it looks in the pan. Other than that, the last row hits you in the face with pigment and you can have endless fun for the price of $49.
