So enter an awesome trio for $2.99 and 8 pan palette for $4.99:
Trio - Silent Treatment (Neutral trio)
Since Silent Treatment has had lots of attention lately, I want to focus on Comfort Zone palette. In one good swipe from the pan - you can get A BIG amount of pigment - PLUS!
|(I think this was 2 swipes per pan - NC42 forearm)|
1. Champagne/peach frost
2. Light golden brown frost
3. Rose gold frost
4. Light mossy yellow/green frost
5. Med. Milk Chocolate - satin with a bit of frost
6. Blackened brown with gold glitter
7. Blackened brown with red glitter
8. Medium rust brown with teal - duochrome satin finish
The texture is soft...like buttery soft. It is nice but then it makes me wonder if there'll be lots of fallout - especially, with the shimmers. Sorry, I have yet to test the three glittery/shimmery shades.There are a few shades that I think wouldn't work for their intended use, ie. #2 would be a bit too dark to use as a brow highlight. But each wearer can mix up the shades however they see fit.
Alas, the beauty of makeup!
Here's what I used for my eye of the day:
L to R:
Rose gold shade - lid
Rust brown/teal duochrome - outer V and bottom lash line
Med Milk Chocolate - crease
Champagne/peach - high light
Dior Extase mascara - Black
I layered this on top of my TFSI and it lasted from 6:30AM up until I washed my face after watching Jersey Shore - 11PM. The only shade that faded was the browbone highlight which one no big shock. I am really impressed with the long lasting capability - I guess the true test is to wear these shadows agains, sans primer. Since this picks up a lot of pigment in one swipe - proceed with caution!
My final assessment:
For $4.99 (or even $2.99) you really can't go wrong - if this isn't you everyday shadow of choice this would be great to add into your emergency makeup kit in your cubicle at work, gym bag or travel pouch. If all else fails give it to your 15yr old cousin that just got the okay from her mom to wear makeup - she'll thank you!
