During my 1 month of studying for exams, I hauled. I needed retail therapy, don't judge! :p I got these 3 palettes for quite a steal, IMO. In total, I spent $45 I think. Just thought I do a haul and a swatch post.
First, I got this NARS Essential Eye palette from Sg_Beauty. It is a limited edition neutral palette. I was so excited for this!
The off white colour in the first picture middle swatch is kind of chalky though, the cream shadow is alright, but I love the second picture above first swatch the most! It's so pretty and swatch very nicely, smooth!
Then, I got the Ben Nye palette for only $5! My heart was thumping so fast when I comment my interest. I was hoping no one was quicker than me! Hahaha. I don't have anything that pigmented and bright! So I was really excited for this! The colours are CRAZILY pigmented! Not an everyday look, but when I need it, I'm sure I would be grateful to have this.
The moment I got it, I played with it immediately! Trying all my current eyeshadow and piling them on Ben Nye to see the colour effects and so on. What a mess!
And I got the Limited Edition MAC's Smoke and Mirrors Palette! My first MAC palette.
Which shadow is chalky which is smooth is rather obvious. My favourite colour would be the first picture middle swatch.
Hope you enjoy the pictures! :D
