Now that I’m finally over the crazy reaction to my lash tint and my eyes are back to normal (thank God!), I’ve been really enjoying playing around with some of the eyeshadows that piled up during my makeup-free weeks. One of my favorites is the new Alchemy of Color Eye Shadow Palette from SEPHORA + PANTONE UNIVERSE. The palette has ten shades of shadow – according to the description, they have a formula that was baked in pure mineral water, a process that traps color for an intense payoff and high metallic shine. Interesting, no? I agree with both those things – the pigmentation on these is great and they definitely have a shine to them. But more importantly, the colors are really pretty and perfect for fall. I love the mauve, periwinkle and violet shades and they combine really well with the silver and grey hues for lots of different color combos. I also like the way the shadows range from light to dark – it’s sort of a nude palette with a twist because you can do daytime looks with it just as easy as you can those for going out on the weekends. Very versatile. It’s earned a place of honor in my bathroom with all of the other palettes I reach for on a weekly basis. High praise!
