If you remember not so long ago I was bragging about how delightful I found Victoria’s Secret latest cosmetic offerings (Clickie for the previous blog entry).
I was pretty chuffed with what they had introduced this Spring and Summer and now I must say that I’m happy once again with the palettes they have released for the Fall.
Prior to these I had purchased the Heavenly Face Eye Shadow Quad and couldn’t rave enough about how cute, pigmented, gorgeous, and girly it was.
I had a Doctor’s appointment today and I happened to wander into Victoria’s Secret because I had about 2 minutes to spare and I came across the latest Eye Shadow Quad and deemed it a must have! My little eye spotted the duo blush and I had to have it as well! I left the store feeling quite content that I nabbed two gorgeous palettes weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Dontcha love palettes?
Both are Limited Edition palettes so get ’em while the getting is good! I find these palettes sell out pretty darn fast at Victoria’s Secret and I’d rather nab them in store than online because paying shipping on top of the price tag of $22 each is a bit obscene! If by chance you are unable to locate these they are most definately available online and I notice they sell out at a slower rate than in stores so it’s a second choice if your lemming comes on hard! I ended up getting a kinda good deal on these as I had a $10 coupon so I got both for around $34 plus taxes, not too bad.
These new palettes come in a really blinged out box compared to the prior boring box of Spring/Summer. One is a gold glitter/shimmer box and the other is a pink glitter/shimmer box. I love the packaging this time around and will definately keep the boxes and store the palettes in ’em as the box is to darn pretty too toss out!
As with the Spring/Summer palette the shadow and now the blush too has a cute gold shimmer design imprinted on each shadow and blush. This time it’s a little twirl and prior it was a cute star shape (you’ll see what I mean in the pictures below). The actual palette case is vastly different from the previous release. It now has the words “Heavenly Face” in script across the case where as the prior release had only a simple design on the cover. I like both actually and think they are super nice either way!
The colors in the eyeshadow quad are very fall this time around. A shimmering dark brown, a shimmering gold, a shimmering beige/nude, and a shimmering bronze are included.
The blush duo has a pale shimmering pink color and a darker shimmering pink. You can use them separately or together, personally I think the lighter pink color may be to sheer for my skin tone but I haven’t yet tried it that’s only based on looking at it not actually testing it. Sadly I couldn’t swipe any of these in store as the testers were behind a glass cube.
Overall these are definately impressive. Victoria’s Secret shocks me somewhat as they have come such a long way with their cosmetic line. These are truly cute and girly to the max!
I’m loving ’em!
The Muse says go get ’em before they sell out!
Color comparisons between the two palettes! The Spring/Summer (On the left again) palette had more vibrant, bold colors while the Fall palette gives us colors that are just as vibrant and bold but more geared towards the upcoming Autumn!
