This was one palette I did not intend to purchase. I was at Sephora hunting for the Urban Decay shadows when I saw this. Looking at the bright colours probably short circuited my brain and instead of going to the safe but definitely usable Shadows 1 palette, I said what the heck, let's play with colours!
The Artist Shadows palette comes in a heavy duty paper packaging. It feels sturdy.
|Left to right: I 872 Pearly Pink, ME 910 Electric Magenta and S 924 Purple|
|Left to right: D552 Crystalline Gray Beige and ME 302 Peacock and ME 232 Turquoise Blue|
These colours prove to be quite a challenge for me to use even though I was first attracted turquoise and duochrome dark brown to the . The first try ended with very tired looking eyes. ME 302 strangely named Peacock fails to show its lovely duochromeness on my lids! On me, it is dark sooty grey.
|ME 302 Peacock|
|ME 232 Turquoise Blue over Peacock|
|D552 Crystalline Gray Beige lightly highlighting my brow bones. Urban Decay eye liner Electric and ME302 Peacock over it.|
I am much happier with this version.
|Left to right: ME 512 Golden Beige, ME 700 Amber and ME 930 Black Purple|
|ME 930 Black Purple close to lash line and blend|
|ME Amber over ME 930 and blend some more. ME 512 Golden Beige on brow bones for highlight|
At SGD $69 you get 9 shadows which I feel is a great deal. My experiences with Make Up For Ever eye shadows have been really good but I am a tad disappointed with Electric Magenta and Purple which did not live up to expectations.
