Where to buy:
I think I’ll have to say that this was my least favourite of these three palettes.
First of all, the colors are really not me, I usually never use bright pink (which again was the only color I DIDN’T have already), and the other colors don’t inspire me at all.
I think that this one has the hardest colors to mix, it’s not as easy to think combination as it is with the other two palettes.
Another major setback is Uzi. We all know that Midnight Cowboy is a glitter bomb, but personally I can live with Midnight Cowboy. It’s Uzi I can’t live with. As you can see from the look 2 image, fallout from Uzi is HUGE. If you ever planning to use Uzi, make sure you do your base makeup AFTER eyemakeup, otherwise you won’t get the tiny silver flakes off.
Oil Slick pencil is a nice change instead of Zero, but I was a disappointed to the quality. Especially when applied to lid, it seem to rub itself away, leaving quite transparent finish, not black at all. And there’s nothing fun with it. I’d imagine that ie. Flipside pencil would have been more “fun” than Oil Slick.
Overall, maybe my creativity / imagination just isn’t enough, but I couldn’t get much fun of this palette.
I can’t say that it’s bad, I’m sure someone else gets more out of it than me, but it wasn’t for me.
