Let me remind you that when I went to Marionnaud on the first day of the winter sales, I discovered palettes that bear the name of Color Booklet or Carnet de Couleurs in French. Small palettes that close with a rubberband like some booklets do (some Moleskine notebooks close that way i.e.). Let me show you how amazing and powerful the blush & eyeshadow palette is. As amazing as the first eyeshadow palette is.
This booklet contains 4 neutral eyeshadows and 3 blushes. It\’s compact and many of you might actually love how compact and travel-friendly it is. I know I do. Also, the size of the blushes and eyeshadows is very valuable ! The colors are delicate, some are a bit unusual and artistic as is the scale pattern on the blushes. I love it.
All the eyeshadows are shimmery : there\’s a chocolate brown one, a white/gold one, a salmon/light pink one and the last one is white.
As for the blushes there\’s a gold/rusty one, a pink one and a beige/purple one.
The top stroke matches the left side of the blush while the bottom swatch matches the right side. It doesn\’t look any different on the golden and beige blushes but it does on the pink blush.
I\’m not a huge fan of pink blushes for I blush really easily. Buuut I\’ve fallen for this one the minute I\’ve seen the right swatch !
This is a funny choice of colours. Maybe a dark-skinned girl could use that one as both a blush and a highlighter.
There are no words to express how beautiful this palette is.
Let\’s see… I would use all the eyeshadows and blushes as eyeshadows.
I already use the golden/white eyeshadow as a highlighter (reminds me of MUR Golden Lights Baked Highlighter given how light, see-through yet bright it is) and I guess one could use the golden blush as an eyeshadow, blush or highlighter according to one\’s skintone.
I use both pink shades as blushes : one is shimmery and very subtle and the other one just has this amazing dark, bright yet subtle color I love.
What more can I say that pics haven\’t shown already ?
The shadows are awesomely pigmented and they last about 4 to 5 hours on my oily eyelids without a primer underneath. WOW.
