Recently I purchased two new eye shadow palettes which I had been meaning to get for a while.
The first is Dior’s Couture Colours & Effects Eyeshadow Palette in Trafalgar (876) which came out with the fall collection but it is in the permanent range. The colours are beautiful! And that’s mainly why I got it. The colours included are a muted pink, a creamy white with dimension, a muted gold which reminds me of the gold in the Exotic Dance duo from Nars, a red-tone brown and finally a berry/red which is the star of the palette.
Not sure how I feel about the quality, I switched it but the pigmentation wasn’t good. However, I still need to play around with it a bit and see how it goes.
The second item I got was the Illamasqua Liquid Metal Palette in 01. Oh how long I wanted this palette, maybe it’s been for four years or something? I always put it aside and never really went after it to buy it. What made me buy it was actually by coincidence- Illamasqua retail is leaving North America and in the Bay in Canada its makeup counter has closed and all the makeup has gone on sale. I saw it by chance and when I saw it was half off. Who could let a chance like these go buy?
The shadows are so creamy and pigmented! Love love love! I haven’t worn it yet so I don’t know how its staying power is but I feel like it should be good. The colour names clockwise (starting from the bronze) is Enrapture, Surge, Electrum, Phenomena.
Here are them switched:
What are your thoughts on these palettes?
