Review of Philosophy Box of Truffles Eye Shadow Palette by MaryEllen
The full name of this product is "The Supernatural Windows to the Soul Eye Shadow Palette in Box of Truffles." Whew! At any rate, it's a very handy set of shadows. The shades are Latte (matte eggshell), Mocha (matte, cool deep beige), Cocoa (shimmery warm medium brown), and Chocolate (cool deep brown). You can do a number of looks from this little mirrored compact, from (pardon the expression) supernatural to a glam smoky eye. Chocolate can be used wet as a liner, and Cocoa adds a little extra to any look. The shadows are not the smoothest--say, compared to Edward Bess's--but they're not chalky, either. The compact is about 4 x 3 inches, has a nicely sized mirror in the lid, and comes with a serviceable brush. This configuration came in several colors, including gradations of gray and purple, but as usual Philosophy has discontinued it. (I wish they would decide what kind of company they want to be--skincare, bath & body, cosmetics, or all three.) But I love this, use it often, and would repurchase if it were available.
