I know it's still August but in my mind it is already fall. It's still really, really hot where I live, but I keep telling myself that it's alright to wear leather, boots, and vampy lips! By the time fall actually comes I'm probably going to be ready for winter though... Anyway, this palette goes along with the fall theme that I've completely incorporated into my style. The gorgeous shades remind me of the changing leaves.
Born Pretty Store 10 Color Eyeshadow Palette
Available on bornprettystore.com
The sleek, black packaging looks very nice, and professional! It was surprisingly pretty large, and the eyeshadow pans are big too. They are bigger than a typical round shadow like a mac eyeshadow, but smaller than the average round blush pan.
This palette is filled with gorgeous shimmery shadows including light shades, bronze shades, purples, and a coppery-orange.
Below you can see swatches of each shadow. I find them to be very smooth and pigmented. I did find the lighter shades to be a little more soft and powdery than the others, but they are still usable. These last all day on my eyes when I use an eyeshadow primer.
Here is a look I did using shades from this palette (the gold glitter is from a Makeup By One Direction palette). I didn't have any issues with blending or color payoff. I do wish there was more matte shades though.
Overall, I enjoy this palette. The shades are gorgeous, and the pans are large. This price is very fair too. The only thing I would like for this palette to have is more matte shades, that way I could get a complete look using it. I will continue to use this though, and I would recommend it.
