Remember that beaurriful goody bag we all got at the BPS event late last year? That massive goody bag *grins*. Sleek Nigeria gave us products, so did Makeup maven and Gifty's Daughter.
Babes....when i opened the Gifty's Daughter goody-bag in the car on my way home, i was blown away! I literally hollered with delight!
A Sam Fine palette!!! And i got the 'Tunisian Nights' too!
Hubby was driving, and he was like 'Hian! Is it makeup that's making you this happy?' I was like "Thou shall not understand".
When the Sam Fine set came out, I planned to get mine.....i really did, but i feared that it was being over-hyped, and i was scared of investing into them and getting disappointed. Then after a while, my longing for the products waned and i found new products to long after. Out of the two palettes in the set, i loved the 'Tunisian Nights' more, and that's why i was so excited to find it in my goody bag.
Thanks again Funke!
Now, on to the review.........
First of all, let me gush about the packaging *bats eyelashes*. This eyeshadow comes in the most gorgeous packaging i've ever seen! Infact, it's beyond gorgeous. It's gold, shiny and classy. As in!!! It also has 2 cute foam applicators inside the palette. Before i eventually used the eyeshadows, i kept on bringing it out of the pack just to stare at it for some time *yes i really did....it's awesome like that!!!*.
The quad has 4 eyeshadow shades Iridescent ice (silver), Shimmering violet (Purple), Shimmering cobalt blue (Blue) and (Matte black) Black. I would describe the silver, purple and blue as jewel-tones. The Iridescent ice isn't as pigmented as the rest, it would just give you a pop of silver wherever you want it.
I always love to have a matte black eyeshadow in my palettes ....i'm sure you know why....so that i can easily do smokey eyes *my favourite look of all time*.
|A closer look|
I would advice you to use a fluffy eyeshadow brush to apply the colors in this palette 'cos the foam applicator doesn't quite do them justice. Just dip in a brush and pack on the colors. The eyeshadows in this palette are really beautiful, and i still plan to get her sister *The 'Amalfi coast' quad*.
So i created the looks above using the 'Tunisian Nights' quad palette.....you like? I like a lot! This eyeshadow quad palette should expect no mercy from me.....NO MERCY! *evil grin*.
