Ok, ok. I know what you’re thinking… $65 for an eyeshadow palette from SEPHORA, Mala?! You have GOT to be kidding me! I mean really, who the hell does Sephora think they are?!? They got some nerve to price their palettes anywhere above $30 & even that is pushing it, am I right?
I’m with you on all of that, trust me. You’re talking to someone who has refused to give into the Natasha Denona super duper expensive palettes hype & I just finished tell you guys how meh the new Urban Decay Naked Heat palette is because it’s the same old warm neutral crap they’ve been pushing on us for forever already. I know.
So why even buy the warm version out of the 3 Pro Pigment palettes for myself in the first place, right? Why not go with the Editorial or the Cool since i have sooooo many warm palettes already, right?
Ok, I’ll tell you. It was the yellow shade. Just because I have been able to resist the Natasha Denona Sunset palette (mainly because it’s been out of stock everywhere since it first caught my eye), doesn’t mean that I haven’t been lusting for that freaking yellow eyeshadow in that palette.
Now, I thought I’d get some sort of gratification from the yellowy looking shade in the Morphe x Jaclyn Hill palette but it just wasn’t the same as the yellow in the Sunset palette. So when I saw TrendMood’s post on this palette, which looked like a pretty similar color scheme as the Sunset palette with more shades & for half the price, a whole new inner battle began to brew.
$65 was still more than I would care to spend, so I didn’t jump when I saw it appear on Sephora’s New Arrival page. It was the swatches & the reviews that swayed me, so I ordered it.
Please believe me when I tell you, I bought this myself & I would NOT blow smoke up anyone’s butt & rave about a product if I didn’t mean it. That being said, I LOVE it!!!
Yes, most shades have more kick up than I’d care to see but the trade off is that the colors practically blend themselves. While we’re on the subject of colors, this palette has such a perfect assortment of colors & is absolutely a stand alone palette.
I’d recommend it for someone who is just starting out in makeup & wants to make a single purchase which would yield maximum variances in looks. You could easily go for a super natural barely there neutral look for work on Monday morning to a super fun, rich, warm glittery cut crease or smokey eye on a Friday night!
I’d also recommend it to a makeup collector or makeup artist. It would make a fantastic addition to any collection & will quickly become a favorite based on the assortment of colors & the insane way the shadows blend themselves out!
I’m definitely going for the Editorial & Cool versions ASAP!!
