As soon as I swatched the palette though, I realised I might be wrong. These colours are uber-pigmented - how the heck am I going to wear them? I love a Sleek palette, but this is only the third one I own, as some of them, although beautiful, aren't colours I'd wear. This palette struck me as being full of colours that would totally suit my colouring (brown eyes and hair, warm skin) but swatched, they scared me!
So far I've tried out a little look using the grey shade (thunder) with a light touch of the navy (ink) and you know what, nobody died. I'm not sure what I was panicking for. I also used the brown (paper bag) as a crease colour with some other shadows and it was perfect. I think it'll take me some time to build up to wearing some of the other colours in the palette, but hopefully it may push me to be a little more adventurous (ie anything more exciting that wearing Mac Painterly paint pot every day!).
I've wavered a lot between lusting for this palette and then slightly regretting the purchase, but I've now decided that I did need it in my life for the super-pigmented staple colours, but it's not necessarily something I can reach for every day or when I'm in a rush. I'm sure I'll love this palette more in the Autumn or Winter as the colours will be more complimentary to clothes for those seasons.
You can get this palette here - it costs £6.99 and is currently on 3 for 2 with all other cosmetics at Superdrug
