Oh, this palette is fab! The shimmery brown colour is really intense, and the golden gray and golden colours are so sexy. Though I will not use the golden pink as blush (if only you want your face to be sparkling), I use it as eyeshadow too. This pink doesn't make my eyes look puffy. Now I really want to buy the green palette too!
This palette includes three eyeshadows and one blush. Chocolate is a very rich dark brown with faint gold sparkles. Golden Grey is silvery with a hint of gold shimmer. Gold is more peachy than yellow. The cheek color, Golden Pink, is a very light coral shade.
The eyeshadows are shimmery but appropriate for daytime/work wear. Application is smooth and sheer and stays put for about 3 hours even on my oily eyelids (with a primer, I'm sure it would last much longer.) The blush is a little too sheer for my medium-tan skin, but works well as a highlighter or eyeshadow.
The packaging is sturdy, slim rectangular metal, and very cute. It includes a mirror and a long-stemmed sponge-tip applicator that can easily be replaced with a brush.
I purchased this for only $4 (original price $18.50) as part of their after-Christmas clearance. An absolute steal to the quality and richness of this product. Love love love. continued >>
I went to TBS to get the shimmer cubes, but when I saw this palette with the golden cheek blush (so like the NARs Orgasm that I've been dying to try), I had to get this instead. (plus, I think it was only $1-2 more, and much cuter packaging). I must admit that I'm an eyeshadow novice (this is my first "shimmery" powder shadows I've owned!) but they're easy to apply (even for me!) and look really nice. I like the sheerness of the shadows as it kind of just leaves my eye shimmery without showing if I've messed up on my application. :) I wish the blush showed up a little bit more, but I guess I'll have to try out what the reviewer before me suggested, and use it as an eye shadow instead. (I'll keep using it as a blush anyway, as does seem prettier than what I've been using).
I love this palette! Its a body shop limited edition hol'05 palette! There are 3 eyeshadows and 1 cheek colour. The eyeshadow colours are gold, golden grey, chocolate and the cheek colour in golden pink. The cheek colour is more like a highlighter and not a blusher because i can only see the shimmers on my cheek. This cheek colour is my fav in the palette! Golden pink is a shimmery gold colour with rose undertones. It looks great as a wash over my lids or applied over my cheeks! I use the gold eyeshadow as a wash , golden grey in the crease and chocolate to line, brightens up my eyes! The shimmery silver and gold combination in this palette really reminds me of christmas! A must have for all!=)
