Review of Scott Barnes Chic Palette in Samba [DISCONTINUED] by syeung2
Left shade: matte apricot-coral, like salmon pink; similar to BB Apricot and similar to but slightly peachier than the middle shade in SB's Chic Palette in Posh
Middle shade: demi-pearl rosy coral pink, slightly deeper and rosier than the rightmost shade
Right shade: pearly/shimmery peachy coral pink; NARS Torrid is a very close match, and MAC Style is similar but peachier
Colors - "Three shades of vibrant peach" according to the Scott Barnes website; I would call them shades of coral - more peachy pink than plain pink. Unlike the the Posh palette, the three shades are quite similar to each other so IMHO they are best used individually instead of as blush-contour-highlighter, respectively. Well pigmented; very soft, silky texture. These three shades are gorgeous with my AAB/NC25 coloring.
Packaging - Palette with three rectangular pans in a line and full-length interior mirror. Sturdy construction with squared corners. Blush pans are generously sized. My only gripe about the construction is that the lid is not secured - there is not a lock or clasp or magnet to keep it closed. Looks great on the vanity but this palette has to stay at home.
Overall - Lovely. Would definitely re-purchase - these shades are great with my coloring (AAB/NC25) so this palette reaches HG status for me. I am sure there is a Chic Palette for every gal - and this is the one for me!
