Next up is the Sugar Plum Fairy palette from the WetnWild Holiday 2010 palette.
Out of the 3 I have, this one had the lowest amount of pigmentation. That isn't to say it isn't a gorgeous palette, but I'm just noting that the others had more.
Top row, left to right: Pale shimmering white (hint of purple), pastel lilac, greyed out "blurple"
Bottom row, left to right: pinky tan, golden medium purple, black with pink/purple sparkle
The eyeliner (bottom pic) is a gorgeous, perfect shade of purple BUT is a bit hard so it tugs on the eye a little. The other two from the sets are fine but this one was a little funny. I'll still work with it though -- it is a really nice shade.
The golden purple had me looking to see if it was a dupe for Mac Trax... let's take a look:
The WetnWild shade is on the left, Mac is on the right.
The WetnWild eyeshadow has a more pigmented base, therefore it is a stronger purple colour. The Mac one has gorgeous golden shimmer but so does the WetnWild... they are close enough for me to call them dupes.
The lighter pastel purple is similar to Beautiful Iris but again, but more pigmented.
Overall, another very good palette. I love the combination of colours, but then again I -love- purples. I will note that there is something interesting about the shade range in this palette... the purples are slightly greyed which gives them an interesting finish. I really loved the way they made my eyes look, and the colour in the bottom left pan is GORGEOUS. It goes on the lid slightly muddy and soft but when you put it under the lash line, it really pops. You'll see in the FOTDs :)
By the way, with these photos... imagine the lip color being a more baby pink/rose shade. I don't know why it was turning orange! Final thing is that my redness was really acting up on Saturday (that's when these were done)... so yeah, my cheeks are wrecked.
