>Just a quick post so I can document what I purchased… and because I think all of these palettes are beautiful 🙂
This post is really short mostly because I didn’t take good pictures of FOTDs with these palettes even though I’ve worn each of them 5+ times since getting them. Oops.
The Cosme Decorte Magie Deco coffret was the second most expensive thing I purchased but the prettiest, by FAR. I’d always wanted an eyeshadow palette because they look like giant pink jewels, but they are very expensive. The coffret was a good value (it also came with a loose blush, jelly eyeshadow, and lip gloss) even with Ichibankao’s markup, and I love it! Still haven’t figured out how to open the blush though XD;
I bought this palette largely because it was SUCH a good value (it came with a clutch, blush, and mascara) but I’m glad I did! I own a lot of neutrals but this palette is lovely and perfect for a 5 minute look, although the shade in the middle is pure glitter and kind of hard to use. I use the blush with more colourful looks – otherwise I find the whole thing is too nude-on-nude for me 🙂
This is the most expensive thing I purchased, but it was for a good cause (and I got a wicked deal on it!) I purchased it as part of the BeautyBloggers.org charity auction benefiting Doctors Without Borders and it was almost 100$ below retail price in the US. I’d wanted the palette since images first came out but at 300$ CAD it was way too expensive to buy without a tester (the SA helpfully informed me that they sold a lot of the palettes without people wanting to try them, so why would I?), but at such a reduced cost AND with all of the money going to charity, I jumped. I’ve only worn the neutrals from this palette (haha) but I love the jewel tones. Need to get myself back into wearing colours for sure 🙂
