Hello Ladies !

Hope you had a good night's sleep.

That's exactly what I hope. Because I did not until 2 AM. My neighbors lost their clock and forgot the concept of Inside Voices - hence the above. But we wont talk about that....

Lets talk about happy things like this little makeup palette that comes packaged like a jewelry box. I know this because my mom has a set of pearls that came in a similar casing. Anything that comes in a jewelery like casing makes the best gift ! It has four eyeshadow ( frosty lilac , frosty purple, gray, shimmery black) and a pretty rose blush. The palette was for $26 but is now listed for $13 on The Body Shop site !!! At $13 its a great bargain ! You'll see why ....

The Eye & Cheek Palette is cute and is about the size of your hand. A great one to pick up and drop into your purse for a touch up later. However given the shades, I don't see one dropping it into my purse unless....

Unless you have a dinner date .

A dinner date with a tall man.

A dinner date with a tall handsome man.

A dinner date with a tall handsome man with dimples.

A dinner date with a tall handsome man with dimples and you know you will be late at work and will not have time to get back home and dress up. Then. Then I see you dropping this kit into your purse along with a nude lip gloss.

Tall handsome man with dimples loves smokey eyes and nude lips ! Its a scientifically proven fact.

Good move dropping the kit into your purse ! And, Good luck on the hot date !

Thank you so much for this post. I had been eyeing this palette but wasn't entirely sure, your swatches did help a lot.
Have you tried Body Shop brushes (Blush/eyeshadow and concealer in particular). I am in India and looking to buy good brushes but feel that MAC is just a wee bit expensive for a newbie like me.
Could you please give some feedback on them?
Thanks a lot!!!

Hi Niharika !

I haven't tried The Body Shop brushes yet. But if I chk them out I'll remember to write something about it here on the blog. And yes brushes are super important but if you can find a cheaper alternative I'm all for them ! I love some of my $2 unknown brand brushes !
