Finally an update!! whew!! I have been neglecting my blog these past few weeks because of law school. I have a really hectic schedule this semester and this is another struggle I have to overcome. So much for my blabbing, I have to show you my newest LOVE!! For my birthday,I wanted a new palette because my CS 78 pc. palette seems boring for my taste lately. I was thinking of buying an 88 pc. palette and a warm palette but when I saw this I knew I have to get it. All along i thought that these 120 and 180 palette are from coastal scents... I have researched and this looks like the 180 from Manly. Even videos and other bloggers show that this palette looks exactly the same from those of Manly's. I bought this from MOI Cosmetics for only 1,550 pesos!!!Superb Deal isn't it?? hehe..
the first layer
the 2nd layer
This palette is a mixture of matte and shimmery e/s. There are also a few marble e/s included with it. In my opinion, this is more pigmented than my coastal scents BUT more powdery especially the shimmery ones. The texture of the shimmery ones are really soft and they tend to get messy too.The Matte e/s, on the other hand, is really nice. I swear!!! When I opened this palette my jaw dropped and I squealed like a child!! It was love at first sight!!The colors are very vibrant. The downside is there are eyeshadows that look the same. as in same shade and texture.. Talk about 180??!! haha But anyways, I still love this pallete.. haha
Here are the close up of the different eyeshadows:
^^This is my favorite!! loving the neutrals!!!!
Their marble shadows look like the shell of a dinosaur egg!! They look sooo cute:
Here is how small the e/s look like. It is a bit bigger than my cs 78 pc. eyeshadow
Here are some swatches I made.. I was thinking of doing swatches of all e/s but I got lazy!! They are so many!!haha These are swatches without any primer. Just the e/s only.
Just one swipe!! look how pigmented they are!!
the best yellow e/s I have ever seen!!! perfect!!haha
testing out the marble shadows
If you are wondering how the compartment looks like when I say that they are arranged by layers:
^the middle one can be removed.
Over all, this product is amazing!!! You just need a good primer and the right technique in applying them.. :D
