Let me just say, the packaging of these palettes is amazing! The whole palette is magnetized, so not only are the eyeshadows stuck to the base of the palette, the lid is magnetized as well! And its a really strong connection, so you don't have to worry about it "falling off".
I was after some really nice neutral shades as I don't seem to have many and would find them very handy for the days when I'm in a rush or something. The girl working there was really nice and she helped me pick out the colours I wanted, still suggesting colours that might go together, but without being pushy about it.
In total, I got two shimmers, one matte, one pearl, and one sparkly :D
Here are some swatches!
Up the very top is the sleek lipgloss #43 (a lovely golden shimmer with a hint of orangy red goodness).
The top row is swatched over NYX Milk Jumbo Pencil, the middle row over Naked Eyeshadow Base, and the bottom row is swatched on its own with no base. How good is that colour pay off ?!
I believe the colours are numbers: #463 (sparkly), #21 OR #8 (both shimmer), #406 (pearl), #21 OR #8 (shimmer) and finally #378 (matte)
I'm unsure about the 2nd and 4th eyeshadows numbers because the girl put them in the palette for me and the receipt doesn't give much info, and they aren't in the same order. I also tried to take one of the shadows out, but the magnet is so strong and I can't :/
Finally, onto the nail polish! This is #546 :)
The palette cost $50 which is very reasonable considering the price of MAC eyeshadows, and I would say these would be up there in comparison to MAC, especially considering the texture, which is very soft, the pigmentation which is fantastic and how easy these are to work with.
The lipgloss was $6, normally $2o, and the nail polish was $5, normally $15. How could I say no to that!
I am veryyy happy with my purchases :D
Also, today I ordered some more stuff from Cherry Culture, I can't wait to get more goodies in the mail!
Thanks for looking! xxx
