Hey beauties how’s it going!?!
If you haven’t already noticed I have a bit of an obsession with eyeshadow palettes so naturally this review is for ANOTHER palette, YAY!
I came across this palette while scouring Instagram on @makeup0980 account. My daughter is big into My Little Pony and I hate to admit it but I’m digging the show as well. (Don’t judge me haha!) So of course, I needed to have it and bought it on release day (August 10, 2017) because i’m impatient and needed it ASAP.I was so excited to get it just based on the pictures PUR posted on their Instagram it looked like a cute, brightly pigmented palette that would be very versatile.
The palette arrived on August 21, 2017, I was a bit surprised that it came to the post office as I thought the website stated it doesn’t ship to PO boxes, so I thought it would come directly to my door. (No Big deal, maybe I miss read the sentence.) I was relieved when It arrived because at check out I had a hard time getting the correct province to show up. (I did contact support and make them aware of this.)I also ended up having to pay when I picked up the package and that surprised me a bit as I assumed I paid everything at checkout. I checked their website and no where did I see it state they would charge the delivery at time of pick up. Again, that was fine I wanted the palette so I paid the remaining tota(At the time I didn’t know if I was double charged or not, thankfully I wasn’t.)
My first impressions right off the bat was how under whelming the packaging was that the product was shipped in. Now I understand not everyone splurges on the fancy colored packages with lots of detail, but I was hoping to at least see their logo on the outside of the box. Instead the palette came in a white cardboard box with the packing slip around the outside. Thankfully the real work of art was what was on the inside wrapped in bubble wrap. The palette arrived in perfect shape with no broken pans or misspelt names!
Lets talk a bit about the palette and how cute it is.
The outside box for the palette is so cute with the My Little Pony name in bold white letter and a magical rainbow galaxy scene behind it. The palette itself is white with a silver holographic logo instead of a white logo like the front of the box.I almost wish the palette case had the same design that the box it came in had. I find the white is going to stain fast and the silver logo is almost lost against the white case. Honestly, I really wanted to display this palette but find it boring and hard to read. (When I display a palette, I want it too to look cool and I want the name to be readable from a distance. If I wanted to keep this in the case and remove it each time I would display it, but I don’t have time for that.)
