I can't remember the last time I held a gorgeous eyeshadow palette, but I'm guessing that the last was the Viseart Matte Eyeshadow palette which I ordered from DTCMakeup a year ago. (gasp) Has it been that long? Wow!
Anyway, today I'd be talking (or writing) about this Nomadic Eyeshadow Palette from the Illamasqua Earth Collection. It's my first time to try out products from Illamasqua and I must say I am really impressed.
Nomadic Eyeshadow Palette
The palette features 4 beautiful shades in either matte or metallic finish. The shades are: Loam (deep earth green/matte), Terra (clay red/matte), Solitude (grayish taupe/matte) and Gravity (pewter gray/metallic).
Loam - Terra - Solitude - Gravity
Take note that I didn't use any primer beneath the swatches above and yet the colors are so vibrant.
And here's a sample look:
Terra on the lid, Loam on the outer-V, Solitude on the crease topped with a bit of Gravity
What I Like:
Colors are very vibrant and pigmented even without a primer.
They stay put on my oily lids even without a primer.
They are not chalky.
Easy to blend.
The 4 shades can be mixed and match to come up with a variety of makeup looks. You can even use each of the shade on its own. Just apply all over the lid and blend the edges.
What I Don't Like:
The packaging. I like that it's lightweight and it's shiny black, but I hate that I get to see my hand prints all over it. I get so OC that I sometimes use a tissue to hold it just so it won't get marks.
It's expensive. But hey, it's Illamasqua! (wink)
I have another Illamasqua palette, the highlighting and contouring one which I am also loving and using in alternate with my Kat Von D. Let me try telling you about that one on my upcoming posts.
So, would you mind suggesting other Illamasqua stuff that's worth checking out? I'm quite a newbie to the brand and seriously I want to get myself kicked for not checking them out sooner. Let me know!------------------------------------------------------------
