Alchemy Of Color Eye Shadow Palette - $41 - features 10 stunning shades of shimmering bronze, nude, mauve, periwinkle, violet, royal blue, dark brown, hazel, silver, and gray hues. The Italian-inspired formula was baked in pure mineral water, an innovative process that traps color in a supple and flexible texture for intense payoff and high metallic shine. The catwalk-worthy colours can be combined to create soft, sultry, or smoky looks and can be applied wet for a more intense, longer wear.
So yes, the colours are all pretty and everything but what I really love is the compact. Rather then having a lid on hinges (that eventually break) it's magnetic and comes entirely off. The other side of the top has a mirror on it which makes it super easy to prop the lid up against something, hold the palette in your hand and really go to town painting up your eyes!
Not only does it has the same metallic palette that I adore from the eyeshadow palette - but the bottom row of shades - a gold, beige and pink, when swirled together give me the most perfect glow, without being glittery - I am totally in love!
While I like the way this primer looks and feels, I am not a fan of the strong floral scent, thankfully it fades quite quickly so the cooling sensation and instant pick-me-up the primer gives me might be worth the trade-off.
Better late to the party then never I guess! Available now in-store and online at Sephora.com.
