I know this post is way out dated but that is sometimes that trouble with blogging. My posts are not catching up to my shopping and acquisitions. I have this with me for close to a month now and I am not sure whether you can still find this palette. But if you can and you love blues, you need to hunt this down quick.
I own one other Pure Chromatic which is the No. 8. I like the formula enough to buy another palette especially when there are stunning blues involved. I saw Arctic Night in some of my favourite blogs namely Zibbie Ko and The Make-up Blogette. I was deeply attracted to the deep blue and complex burgundy shade. When I couldn't find it at the airport during my Bali trip I decided to head down to Tangs Orchard to get it before they were sold out.
The palette comes in a pretty sequin pouch that flashes silver and blue.
The gold casing attracts a lot of finger prints and I notice that once in a while I need to use a cloth to give it a good rub because the gold casing looks a little dirty after a while.
The burgundy colour on the top left is a duo chrome shade that flashes deep blue at certain angles. It is gorgeous when layered over the deep blue. The icy pale blue / white has light blue sparkles.
Here is a look I did with the palette using all the colours.
|Bright blue used wet on the inner corners and blending out|
|Dark blue used wet from the outer corners blending in|
|Burgundy shade used dry on the crease area|
|Blend the burgundy so that there isn't a crisp line|
|Add the icy white shade on brow bone and blend with the rest of the colours. And tight line using a black liner.|
|Line the bottom lash line with a dark blue pencil and the inner corners with a pearly white. Curl lashes and add mascara, loads of it.|

I bought a top hat thingy to wear for a friend's wedding. DH said that I should wear a proper hat so I bought a cute red hat. Since I don't really have a chance to wear this one I thought I would goof off with it.
SGD $88. It is a worth it palette for me just because of the deep blue and burgundy shade. I experience minimal smudging and fading. I am kicking myself for not making use of the Feel Unique 20% discount to get this palette when I had the chance.
