a little review on this palette:

I.M.O. this palette is just ok... I mean I liked this look, it's very simple, not too dramatic than what you thought the colors in this palette would deliver after just swatching it... but the color pay off was actually not that good, especially the darker colors - Groupie(purple) & Motorhead(grayish black).... so you really have to work on packing on the colors & you would really need a good base to help intensify the colors... I expected to like the darker colors since they are the main focus in this look but it was actually the other way around... I liked the lighter colors (Believer & Confessional) instead, they are more pigmented than the other 2 main colors...  this palette was also no bueno in terms of fall outs, I mean there wasn't really much but since Believer(used as a brow bone highlight) have glitters, some got stuck on my brows & I know noone likes looking like a christmas ornament... & there was also a little bit of fall out with the Motorhead(used on Outer Corner)... so I would consider this palette as a miss more than a hit... I personally feel like I just wasted 500 precious Beauty Insider points on this palette... I should've saved up my points & waited for better ones... another big 'oh effin well!!!'....

  1. cute! I really like the purple on the eyes!


  2. It's really pretty!! :D The palette is a lot more wearable than I thought - bc it's so glittery in person, I thought that it would just transfer all onto the eyes. Did you get a lot of fall out??

  3. I love KvD too. I have the Ludwig pallete, which I love! Just stumbled across your blog and am loving it so far. :)

  4. thanks ladies!! =)
