After an hour of playing with the collection, swatching and drooling over them. I decided to purchase only two items from the collection, which are the Facets of Marsala Multi-Finish Eye Palette and the Metalshine Liquid Liner.

The Facets of Marsala Multi-Finish Eye Palette comes in 24 shades and it’s a palette that I can truly appreciate because of the different color options. ranging from matte to shimmer to satin.  The focal point of the palette are the reddish brown shadows with complimentary colors tha t are perfect for everyday use. The only downside I found with the palette is that it has a lot of fall-out, but nothing an eyeshadow primer cant fix.

My second purchase was the Metalshine Liquid Liner, a metallic liquid liner. And it just screamed, “buy me!” (lol) because how often do you come across a liner like this, to me, it was deemed purchase worthy.

Overall, I am very pleased with the choices I’ve made with this years collection. I absolutely love the eye shadow palette, and I see myself using it everyday. The Liquid liner I can add to my ever growing collection and pull it out when I’m feeling adventurous.

See you in the New Year Loves!
