New Year! New Palettes!

I added something new to my Makeup Collection!

They are two beautiful eyeshadow palettes I bought at Ebay. They contain lots of eye popping vibrant shades that instantly caught my attention. Last Month [Dec 2010] I added them to my New Year's Wish list as apart from eyeshadows being my eternal weakness I just cant get enough of them! These palettes would make a good buy for anyone wanting to boost their Makeup collection [Mine is overflowing with too much makeup! HaHa!]

As goods bought at Ebay arrive by mail/courier, I was worried they might arrive damaged but luckily mine arrived in 10 days without any damage! Whew!

Below is the 1st palette that I bought! It's the 120 Warm Shimmer Eyeshadow Palette - Version 3. I paid £13.50 for it and think its a good deal!

I just can't look away from the glorious array of colours that are neatly arranged in palette form! This is an all shimmer palette, the colours fit well into the warm catagory and ranges from neutral to vibrant warm colors. The shadows have a satin smooth texture and do not feel or look chalky and are well pigmented! I totally <3 this palette and highly recommend it to all shimmer lovers out there. 120 Warm Shimmer  Eyeshadow Palette - Version 3

The next palette I got hold from Ebay was the the Beauties Factory 120 Eyeshadow Palette - Version 3! An interesting thing about it is that the palettes are square shaped and not the conventional round shape and this was one of the reasons I bought it! It's different you see! Though Manly are selling square shaped palettes, I went in for the Beauties Factory palette as they are priced lower (£13)! 120 Eyeshadow Palette - Version 3

This palette contains a mix of matte and shimmer shadows, with the shadows having a pretty decent quality and the color payoff being pretty hardcore though a few of the shadows are chalky and not very pigmented.As these shadows are loosely packed therefore expect some fallout with them! I find that the shimmer finish shadows are all great, it's the mattes that can be hit or miss (chalky, lacking pigmentation).

Staying Power is okay and they obviously don't match upto the quality of MAC or high end professional brands , still by using them with a good eyeshadow base or cream eyeshadow they will stay on for a longer period!

Have any of you tried these palettes or planning to then feel free to share your views here!
