My Preciiious Palette is a tight little package


Look, it's no secret that I don't wear makeup. The closest I get is a combination of styptic pencil, aftershave and skin softener when I butcher my face in a shaving frenzy. I am, however, a sucker for neat design.

A buddy of mine dropped a $25 My Preciiious Palette from Sephora on the bar this weekend and the "toolbox compact" layout caught my eye. A top compartment holds twelve eye shadows, and two blushes. The second tier holds six lip glosses, and the bottom tray holds highlighters, mascara, applicator brushes and some kind of shimmery substance that I'm unable to wrap my brain around.

The box is three by three inches, but the two top sections slide laterally to widen it out to an eight inch wide makeup station. Ever seen a tackle box? It's a pretty similar layout. Clean, classic, and nifty. It only comes in a juvenile translucent pink so you might wanna paint the sucker white.

There's a complete list of the tones and pieces in the set below the fold.

From the ye olde Sephora webpage:

Eye shadow colors:
Nude rose
Taupe shimmer
Cafe nude
Golden white shimmer
Rose shimmer
Vibrant purple
Lilac shimmer
Sky blue

Burnt peachy-rose

Lip glosses:
Mauve shimmer
Coral shimmer
Nude Sheer
Peach shimmer
Soft pink shimmer

There's also a cheek shimmer, powder highlighter and bronzer. Hardware includes mascara, blush brush, double-ended shadow applicator, and a lip brush.

Am I the only one offended that a makeup review was written by someone who doesn't wear makeup?

I love these gadgety makeup cases, but they tend to have sub-par makeup. The only person who could really do a review of this is someone who actually WEARS makeup.

This is personal tech for WOMEN, right? Why are men writing the reviews?

The compact above is a Sephora offering so I would hope that the quality is on par with their other products.

I didn't review the quality of their makeup, but my friend Abby said that she likes it so far.
