Eek! First post!
My review of Urban Decay Foreshadow Palette. Insert snazzy pic here!
To be frank this was one of my first high end makeup purchases. I bought it (mostly) to own it. I didn't think that I would wear it much.
Wrong! Aside from a few minor problems the Foreshadow Palette is a great buy!
The palette comes with four shades:
Oil Slick : black/ silver glitter
Stray Dog: cool medium brown
Midnight Cowboy : pink champagne with silver glitter
Flipside : electric teal with a blue sheen
I love, love, love Stray Dog! If I get the courage to do tutorials you will see stray dog often! It's the perfect brown. When blended out it gives off a slight golden sheen. Love! It have a lovely silky, buttery texture. Oil Slick is a staple eyeshadow, great for the crease! It is not as soft as Stray Dog, but very intense! A little goes a long long way!
Flipside is nice. Not my type of color. I say go to Sephora, give it a try. Before buying the palette. It may make you love or hate the palette.
The Bad (?): Midnight Cowboy is a lovely shade but like many people I have issues with the glitter. If you are a beginner this is definitely a deal breaker (unless you like fallout!).If you are a pro, this should be no biggie. My suggestion to you beginners out there mix Midnight Cowboy with a little eye primer and apply ( good to go! ).
The Horrible: It's no longer for sale on Urban Decay or Sephora! BUT, it is for sale at allcosmeticswholesale.com, which is where I bought mine (along with the Baked Palette, review coming).
Swatches will be in the next Blog.
Any questions or comments ?
