Look at this palette. Look at its absolute beauty. Gorgeous isn't it! It's like a pink toned rubic cube of prettiness.
But sadly the colours have left me cold and disappointed.
You see, looking at the swatches below I would totally buy this palette if I was reading this blog post. Maybe it was bad lighting or a bad skin week, but when I tried them last week I just felt blah in all of them.
Well I guess not all of them-I really liked the top row of the palette. Especially the colour top left.
The middle row made me look like death warmed up-they are very pastel toned and the middle row far right was so lilac toned I felt like Nicki Minaj and the colour just felt very unnatural on me.
Bottom row left was also ok on me but overall I can't help feeling disappointed with most of the shades.
Wear time was good and I found the shades weren't drying but really seemed to cling to any dry skin on your lips.
I wear every lipstick colour under the sun so I am quite surprised that I didn't absolutely adore this palette but something is just not doing it for me.
It is a hybrid palette and can be used on lips and cheeks but for me, cheek application would be a little bit too fiddly as each individual colour is quite small.
Maybe I was just having a blah week (I was having 'post birthday, hard week in Cairo blues' I think. Maybe I will give it another go otherwise it'll be in my next blog sale.
Sorry some of the lip swatches are a little wonky-I have been trying to blog on my Microsoft Surface Pro rather than my MacBook Pro and I am still getting to grips with the photo storage system and windows again!
What do you think?
This is a limited edition palette, I bought mine from Sephora in Dubai but I found it on the Harrods
website for £44.50 and Barneys in the US for $67.
