I notice that the more I tell myself I am not going to purchase a collection lately, the more likely I am to end up with most, if not all of it. Case in point: I swore up and down that there was no way I’d splurge on the Mother-of-pearl adorned Ecailles palette from Armani’s SS 2012 makeup collection, and yet here I am, brandishing my purchase (and face) for your judgement (and hopefully appreciation).
In my defense it was only after reading like the 10th positive review AND learning that it was 30$ USD cheaper in HK – I mean 65$ is far more reasonable than 95$. *bricked*
It’s so lovely! I rarely wear blues but the minute I saw pics of the palette I wanted it – I love jewel-toned eyeshadows. I will say this: it wears much better on the eyes than it swatches with bare fingers, so brushes (and a good base) are your friend 😛
