I actually can´t tell you want made me order this eyeshadow palette specifically but something was just terribly appealing about this collection of blah neutrals =)
I am admittedly a fan of Maquillage´s Eye Creator (3D) palettes as they have an outstandingly smooth and pigmented texture with usually a great luminous finish.
This spring season the clean nude eye look seems to be popular among Japanese brands (Kosé´s brands Visee and Beauté de Kosé went for the same theme).
Now I really don´t have a lack of nude beiges, golds and other neutrals in my stash but still something in my head told me to order this palette (you know, that little makeup devil that likes to talk to me A LOT).
Whateva, I got the palette (BE763) this week and eagerly tried it out. I ordered from Ichibankao this time.
I am disappointed and delighted in the same time...read on why! =)
What disappoints me is that the nude shades are all very sheer and one shade is really glittery which is something not found that often in Maquillage nowadays. So I´d say if you have no nude shadows this is a good palette to get 3 different ones at once but I think many have such shades in their beauty arsenal so the palette can safely be skipped.
On the other hand the overall look (while really easily dupable) is really fresh and clean without making my eyes look tired or too small (as pastel colors makes them look a lot smaller).
What I also like about the palette is that the cream base is good and keeps the shadows in place. Also the cream liner stays put and doesn´t smudge at all however it is a bit sheer and not really smooth.
The color are an eggshell pink, pale beige and pale gold. The base is white and the eyeliner is a pretty stone gray which makes a nice soft liner shade.
The whole palette has a sand-dune feeling to me as the powder shadows have wavy imprints and the 2 cream shades have cute shells printed on (they disappear though as soon as you wipe them).
Overall a pretty fool-proof palette but not a must-have. I am sure you will find a more interesting color combo among Maquillage´s palette.
I did the EOTD as recommended on the box:
