Last month in April, I visited Make Up For Ever boutique store in Beverly Hills. I think that was the biggest mistake because I ended up buying products I don't need.
I took this picture from my Instagram. I bought an eyeshadow palette, eyeliner/eyeshadow, and lipstick. He was kind enough to give me their newest blush samples. For this post, I will focus on the eyeshadow palette.
Make Up For Ever Arty Blossom Palette (LE)
Where to purchase: Make Up For Ever boutique stores
Price: $42 for 8 x 1 g/ 0.03 oz
Made in Italy
Description from the box: The limited edition Arty Blossom palette features eight eye shadows, including six new exclusive shades. Mix and math this range of delicate shades to reinvent color with a subtle pearly glow.
Thoughts: When I went to the boutique store, they had a display for the newest Spring collection. This eyeshadow palette is part of it. Now only was I drawn to the product because it was new and limited edition, the salesperson also told me they only had two left. With my messed up mind, it sold me. :/
Now for the swatches of the palette...
Now for looks I did with this palette...
Now for my overall opinion... First of all, the packaging is adorable and small enough to carry with you. With that said, I noticed the top has a rubbery-feel to it. I don't know if it's a good thing because it has a slight stickiness. I noticed if I lay another product on top, it sticks onto the palette. Secondly and this is one of the reasons I bought this palette, the consistency of the eyeshadows are amazing! They are extremely smooth and pigmented. Just a little swipe of eyeshadow with your finger and you can see the opaqueness. I also thought the first three colors from the left would be a great everyday wear. In all honesty, I was kind of disappointed. It doesn't look that orange-y in the palette. When I wear the colors, my skin brings out the orange rather than the brown. It's definitely not an everyday color. For that reason, I cannot see myself grabbing this palette in daily basis. Out of all the colors, I can see myself using the white for my inner corners. Just because I feel this way for myself, it doesn't mean it'll be that way for everyone else. Who knows the color might look better on other skin tones. I just can't seem to pull it off that well. Lastly and with everything said, it's very long lasting. It does not fade and crease.
