When I saw Becky's post from her blog Everyday Makeup Blog, I was instantly drawn! An all matte palette from WnW! I checked my local Walgreens soon after, but it wasn't until my second trip where I was able to pick this up. WnW palettes are known for their impressive pigmentation, and for the most part, this particular palette doesn't disappoint.
The little ♥ is so simple, yet so cute.
8 matte eye shadows in one palette.
Swatched from left column to right column; top to bottom. All swatched without a primer.
I was most impressed by the neutral colors in this palette. They swatched so effortlessly! The colors were a bit harder to swatch, as they were a bit chalky. From all the other blog posts I've read, it seems like the purple was the shade that most had difficulty with though. But, I don't think I'll mind that part as much since I don't venture into bright colors on a daily basis. And, since everything is matte, I feel like they won't be as intense for everyday wear if ever I feel..."colorful". And for $4.95, I really can't complain!
I believe these are limited edition 8 pan palettes, so if you're interested in a fairly good variety of matte colors and neutrals, visit your local Walgreens before they all run out! (I opted out in the LE baked palettes since I felt I had too many shimmey shadows at the moment...though I've been considering going back to see if they still have some at my local store.)
I think I'm all packed for my mini getaway! My cousins' cousin is getting married this Friday, 11/11/11. I'm quite excited. :D I love weddings and dressing up. Plus, I think it'll be a mini family reunion. Definitely looking forward to it! Won't be having internet for posts, but I'll be back on Sunday.
And yes, been lagging on the commenting too. Now that I have my new phone, I use gReader before sleeping just to catch up on reading blog entries. Too bad there's no option for comments! Boo. Anyways, take care until...probably Monday.
Oh, and I think I'm finally ready for my first blog giveaway.
Will post sometime next week. Stay tuned!
