DuWop Crush Palette 18 Karat Review and Swatches
Yesterday was the official start of Fall and the Muse couldn’t be happier. As far as she’s concerned it’s the very best time of the year. Happy Fall Ya’ll now graces my front door and I can barely wait for Halloween.
I was feeling all Fall-like today so I cracked open my DuWop Crush Palette in 18 Karat. This was from the DuWop Summer Collection 2009 and I’m just now getting a chance to use it…sheesh talk about late to the game. The good news is the palette has a slew of Fall friendly shades in it.
Jump ahead for the deets!
Ok, so I hated it. I absolutely adored the original. Yes, there was one before this release. You can see my review of it by following the link.
Now that palette lived up to it’s name and gave a metallic gorgeous finish. This palette however is almost a dupe of the same colors but with a crummy formula that has a frosty finish and major fall out woes.
The shades in the DuWop Crush Palette in 18 Karat are somewhat the same as the ones in the prior palette however they are bit softer and not as bold. Where as the older palette had a strong metallic finish this one had a frosty, shimmer overload finish that was quite unflattering.
The formula itself blends fairly easy with plenty of pigmentation. The only real problem would be it does have terrible fall out. I guess mainly my rant is over the unflattering finish which I wasn’t loving. I felt like I got a cleaner look with the original Crush palette.
Overall, I brought this out of sheer curiosity and was hopeful it would be as great as the other but it failed to live up to it’s pretty looks. I’ll give a few more tries before completely giving up on it but at this point I’m just not loving it. For the most part it does create a beautiful Fall look if you like frosty shadows.
