I don't know when I became a hoarder of neutral eyeshadow palettes, but there is something about them that I find hard to resist! Even though my skin tones is better suited to cooler tones, I'm also attracted to warm peach and browns - and this 15-color palette from Goege is chock-full of them.
I was pretty excited when I got the opportunity to try this palette, but also *really* skeptical. Mattes are notoriously difficult to use and blend. And, at less than $10, how would a palette full of mattes measure up? At first, I was not happy with the performance. I was having trouble getting a good swatch, and I thought that my fears were realized. Have you had an eyeshadow just start working? As if there was a film or overspray that you just had to get through in order to get to the goodness within? I guess that's what happened here, because then I started really getting the colors!
The swatches I've done here are on my arm, with my fingers, on bare skin (no primer). I've broken them up into sets of three, from the left to the right of the palette, and from bottom to top.
I'm really trying to get better with the lighting...
I created another look with just oranges and browns. Still used the black/brown shadows for eyeliner. Very impressed with them!
This palette can be found on Amazon, where it retails for $8.95.
I have become a bit of a shadow snob, but these were a reality check. How much does price factor into your decision to buy makeup?
