So the cosmetics ban that I took part in from early October 2014 to January 1st 2015, is officially over. It
wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be was horrible. There were so many launches, not to mention all of the limited holiday sets. Lucky for me, Sephora dropped the ball this year with their Superstars kit. That was my biggest fear. But, it was so similar to last years kit, I had no angst about not picking it up.
This palette however, has been taunting me. Sonia Kashuk was never available where I live, until Target came to town. (And that worked out really well – they will be closing down their stores and getting out of Canada soon. Which is truly sad for a multitude of reasons!)
When I heard the news that Target would be closing, I had to jump on this ASAP, because they were always sold out when I was there. Luckily there were two palettes left. One was opened and swatched. Which on a side note, infuriates me. And there’s no way somebody swatched this, and decided not to take it. They swatched it, fell in love, and then took a new one home with them. Seriously, I could vent my retail pet peeves all day. If you see something that you want to try and there is no tester, just BUY it. If it’s not your cup of tea, bring it back. That way at least the stores inventory stays current, and they can properly order the stock. If there are 6 open swatched lipsticks, the stores computer won’t automate an order for that if it shows there are 6 on hand. Leaving other customers super frustrated that they can’t get the product they want.
Anyway- rant over. Let’s switch to a more positive tone. Hello Palette…
This palette includes 12 shades. All neutral. All matte. (Talk dirty to me!)
I don’t care how much makeup you have. If you don’t have this, find it immediately, and bring it home.
I wouldn’t change a thing about this palette. I love all of the shades, they swatch beautifully, blend easily, and do not crease on my eyes. I’m actually having anxiety about only having one. When I find a product like this, I will completely use it up. This palette gave me exactly what I was expecting from the Lorac Pro shadow palette. (The matte shades at least!) I think I am the only person in the world who doesn’t like the Lorac shadow palettes.
I can mix these colors up, to work in my brow, and the matte black is amazing. I love the sleek packaging, but of course, I wish the large clear window was a mirror.
This palette was $19.99 CAD, and worth every penny. When Target starts marking their stock down, Sonia Kashuk and I are going to have a reunion. And it will be serious.
This palette would provide you with endless looks, from super basic, to a beautiful smoked out eye look. Light shades, dark shades, transitional shades… They are all here.
Thank you Sonia Kashuk. Truly. Thank You.
