|This is the package I received. So cute!|
|Here's the front of the palette. It definitely has a crocodile retro feel to it. It reminds me of a cross between a vintage purse and an old book ;)|
|For those that are a ingredient-conscious, the ingredients are listed on the back of the sleeve for the palette.|
|As you can see, She Wears It Well focuses on an array of neutrals from smoky black to light frosted pink!|
|Here's a close-up of the first half of the palette with the addition of Sunset, which is the large middle shadow. These are all shimmery, though Foxy was more satin than shimmery to me.|
These are all very smooth and silky, even the mattes. I would say that like most dark mattes, Onyx and Toffee take a little more work to get perfectly even coverage, but they are great to blend with.
While I'm not the type to wear neutral shadows every day of the week, I absolutely love a good neutral eye. "Bedroom Eyes" done with neutral shadows are some of my absolute favorite looks to create and this palette is perfect for that! I think there's a decent amount of variation between the shadows. No two were so similar I thought you could necessarily do without one, but of all the shadows I'd say Trophy and Sunset are the closest to each other, but even then Sunset has more of a slight copper hue to it than Trophy does. I love that the mattes chosen for this palette are exactly what I like to use for neutral mattes. And again, I love that Almond is a perfect match for my skin tone!
This palette is priced at $34.
Where to Buy
This palette is available on Nordstrom.com and Sephora.com. I was told it wouldn't release for a couple weeks, but it looks as though it's available online now!!!
Would I recommend this?
Yes, I think this is a perfect palette for anyone looking for a good neutral palette, especially one that includes some key matte shades!
* With all of the changes lately with companies going from cruelty-free to not, I'm waiting to hear back from my Anastasia rep as to whether or not Anastasia is 100% cruelty-free. I'll update once I know more!
