My legs go weak just looking at the thing.. I mean isn’t it just the best thing you’ve ever seen. I recently did the risky thing of browsing the Cult Beauty website. Not for anything In particular, I Was just minding my own business and out of nowhere this palette caught my eye. I had heard a lot of good things about this palette from across the pond in america and had eagerly been awaiting its arrival. well of course before you knew it I had selected check out, put in my details and parted with my money in the matter of seconds. We will start with price, You should probably take a seat as it’s a hefty one. It’s Β£41. Which works out to around Β£2.92 per eyeshadow so If you look at it that way It’s actually quite reasonable, Right? I can justify anything though so no one can take me shopping. To me you’ll need everything you touch! So anyway the postman turned up and I pretty much ripped his arm off, All he has to say is ‘makeup?’ and I ekkkk in excitement. He knows. I ripped open the packaging to reveal this beauty. This is probably my favourite packaging on any make up product. It’s a gorgeous dusty pink in a felt sort of material. Feels like good quality anyway. I have always preferred a warm eye colour on myself, I just think It suits me better. So to sum it up, This palette is literally made for me. It’s got every colour in there you’d need to create a warm eye look. I of course couldn’t wait to get home from work so I swatched it at work. They are so incredibly buttery and pigmented I don’t think I’ve ever tried eyeshadows like it, And I’ve tried a lot. As soon as I got home, I decided to try it out properly and just to show you how gorgeous they are, This is the look I created. Excuse my stupid face.

Right to Left: Raw Sienna, Burnt Orange, Primavera, Red Ochre, Venetian Red, Warm Taupe, Regular.

These we’re from just one swatch so you can see how pigmented they are. My favourite colours have to be Burnt orange for my transition colour, Regular for my crease, and Love letter and red ochre for the outer corned and lower lash. But that being said, I do belive i’d use every eyeshadow in this palette. Let me know if you would like to see some eyeshadow looks using this palette. I cannot explain how much I love this palette. This and Tartlette In Bloom are my top faves. I can see this taking the top place though.
