I got the Target release of the Wanderlust palette for Christmas 2018 ( I mention because Profusion makes near identical palette releases for specific retailers) . The Target palettes are 21 circle pan in a sturdy hard plastic packaging,glossy black on the bottom tray holding the named shades and a decent dual ended brush ,and the top with a clear lid featuring gold lettering and a gold glitter border.I've swatched this palette,and come up with a few looks , but I have to admit I haven't worn every shade yet ( I've been on a eyeshadow buying bender lately,and it's partly ShopHush's fault) .The Wanderlust palette is a colorful palette with a few neutrals . Six neutrals to be exact. Three cream/champagne and three chocolates. This will allow the wearer to choose a pure neutral look if she wishes or continue on to a vibrant colorful look. The colorstories in this palette are a range of five greens in shimmer or foil finishes (my favorite being Majesty -a olivey old gold foil that is just gorgeous! I'd rebuy the palette for this color alone !) three teal/blues ( one matte ,two shimmers)and six purples/pinks( 3 mattes , 3 shimmers) . Wait! You say. " That's only 20!" Right. Lastly , there is a glittery topper in a silvery white called Frosting. Okay from the top row across:Illusion -cream satin with pinky undertones and a light silver microshimmer Tranquil- a lighter powder form of Mac Soft Ochre matteChill- champagne shimmer used lightly would work like a satin ,could be foiled with a damp brush Serious- a sheerish medium green satin with a lot of gold glitter infused into it . Not my favorite type of shadow finish Frosting- silvery white foil/glitter ,a bit chunky,may work best as a inner corner or halo eye highlight Gravity- a soft orchid pinky purple with a bit of a blue duo reflect. It's in the purple family, it goes on a bit sheer but seems to build up okay . I can see it's semi-sheerness as a positive to blend with the other strong purples and teals.Love Story- medium warm shimmer pink with matching pink glitter infused . Better formula than Serious.Row 2Majesty- Olive old gold foil . Love . Especially wow over Cruise or Enigma.Hypnotic- what UD Hatter should have been- a deep rich true green satin . Love.Jade- a deeper murky foresty green satin .Love.Stormy- gorgeous emerald turquoise shimmer Love.Splash- Highly pigmented vibrant Mediterranean turquoise ocean blue satin . Hard to find color ,may be a bit hard to get off ( I suspect that I'm going to be doing long sleeves tomorrow after tonight's swatchfest)Regal - a hard to find ,gorgeous ,pigmented true purple matte Love.Nimbus-mauvey-orchid-pinky shimmer with pink glitter infused .okay.Row 3Coast- chocolate brown matte nice . LikeStatement- warmer chocolate brown matte . LikeNostalgia- dark chocolate matte ( by a half to a full step darker than Coast) I like it , but for better palette versatility a matte black may have been a better option than having three very similar browns. I'd probably ax Coast , but all three browns are silky mattes and blendable.Cruise-gorgeous midnight teal blue satin. In combination with Majesty? Wowzers.Enigma-teal navy matte very pigmented.gorgeous.Retro- blue purple matte very good pigmentation Go Girl- magenta purple matte very good pigmentation To sum up this palette offers a lot of harder to find ( especially with decent pigmentation) colors at a $10 drugstore price - for the whole palette! And it has some good neutral shades as well . If I was looking for good purples,blues or greens I'd have said to go to Urban Decay or Coloured Raine. To buy a single from UD? $10 on sale, $20 if not. CR? $4 & shipping on sale , or $7 & shipping if full price. Profusion is cruelty free , designed in Los Angeles and made in China.
