REVIEW & EOTD: City Color Intense Shine Palette, White & Charcoal...

Another gorgeous palette I ordered in the depths of June to keep me focused on the promise of Spring Bought this City Color Intense Shine set from MBA Cosmetics for the bargain basement price of US$10, and it's a beauty. These shadows are creamy and super shimmery - all metallic foils, they glimmer and gleam when they catch the light, are deliciously pigmented, fallout is minimal, and they blend effortlessly...
Swatched these on my leg over a face primer, and three finger swipes is all it took to reveal their beauty. I was drawn to this palette because of the unusual mix of colours, in particular those reddish pinks which are unique in my collection...
For my first EOTD from this box of goodies, (surprisingly) I chose the white and the charcoal, the two pans at the beginning of each row. My base was white and black Chi Chi Waterproof Gel Liners - Like a Virgin and Black is Black, starting with the white closest to my lashes, and the black on the back half of the lid...


I then pressed the eye shadows onto the respective liner, and blended them together, also taking the charcoal underneath the lower lash line. The same black liner went ion the waterline...


As you can see I was wearing black and white on this particular day, hence the choice of monochrome shadows. Facewise I'm wearing my HG foundation, Mirenesse Velvet Maxi Lift Surpreme 18 Hour, cheeks are a base of Maybelline Master Glaze Stick in Make a Mauve, with a light dusting of essence Blush Up in Pinky Flow.  Lips are Revlon Superlustrous Lipstick in Liptember Mauve, glossed over with Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquer in Rose Quartz...

Thrilled to bits with this palette - it's far superior to the L.A.Girl Neons palette I reviewed earlier in the month, mainly because the pigments are considerably more intense, and the powder formula is so soft and buttery. More looks in the pipeline!

Take care of you,
