Best eye palette!
This is by far my favorite eye palette from EL: finally, something for those of us who are olive-skinned and/or tanned! Every time I wear it, I get LOTS of compliments. The green is an absolute stunner and the orange a nice pop. There's just a bit of glitter in the beige, but not distractingly obvious. The whole combination looks especially superb when teamed with orange or copper lip gloss and the shimmering sands gelee powder. When done right, you get an exotic, yet elegant look. All told, I'd really like to see this palette added to the permanent line.
Once again, my first observation with this year's Bronze Goddess offering is yet again the seeming age limitation to the 20-something crowd with these colours. They are lovely, but the pigments and shades are very restrictive. I DO note the palette could be equally pretty with any hair colour (which was likely the main intent). But hair is useless if skin type and tone are not considered. I am fair, so this is useless to me. I adored it in the store, but the lighting was far different than either home or daylight. I will say the 2 sand colours work just great if you don't need long lasting or non-creasing. Even the brown is OK in moderation for night-time. AND I was pleased the orange went on a great deal lighter and more neutral on me than I had expected. But, these colours together all produced a rather garish and clown-like look on my pale skin and older face. The aqua is absolutely awful. True, it completes the palette, but that is all I can see in it's favour. Even to my some-what creative mind, I cannot imagine WHO this would flatter. It looks alright on the model, but I highly suspect her artist mixed a LOT of the brown in to darker and deepen this super-bright shade. As another reviewer stated, this is rather sparkly. I have actually been observing lately that EL has been featuring more and more sparkly or "shimmer" eye shadows in their palettes. Please just stop! Again, the 30-70 crowd does not look good in sparkles. A satin or even a matte is ideal. I never minded a palette with a good mix, but lately, they ALL seem chock-full of "shimmer" colours. Why? They crease and flake far worse than a satin or matte. My uninformed guess would be the filler used to create the high gloss sparkle flecks is cheaper than the quality product required for satin or matte. A shame, really to see a beloved company beginning to show the lack of quality resulting from an on-going lousy economy. All in all, this product this year is an enormous disappointment. After the perfection of last years palette and gelee formulation, this is an even larger let-down. I typically give positive reviews, but that is because I believe in giving praise where it is due: and this isn't it. The colours are not worth spending this amount of money on a poorly pigmented and lower-than-usual product quality. Here's hoping next year will see another "Capri"-type item. Until then, if you are over 30: just wait it out.
