Christmas is just around the corner and I bet many of you have been wearing your best makeup looks for your reunions, Christmas parties, and other merry festivities. I'd love to see what they look like. ^_^
I too have been playing with my makeup to create colorful and glittery looks for the holidays. Lately, I've been using these colors from my...
Sephora Color Wishes Eyeshadow Palettes
These palettes were given by my second cousin who resides in California. She knew that I was into makeup and got me these when she visited the Philippines a few months back.
The concept and design of the packaging is super adorable! I'm loving that it's so handy and that it looks like little, cute books.
I tried looking for product info from Sephora, but I guess this is only a limited edition kind of product so I'm posting the one from Amazon:

Each palette has its info on the bottom,
as well as on the box it comes with.
Each "book" has two eyeshadow shades that complement each other. When you open it, there's an illustration on how they suggest you wear the shades.
The photos below are closeups of each palette with their swatches.
Be a Celebrity
It's the neutral of the five palettes. It's the most wearable too.
I'm loving the matte-shimmery combo that it brightens the eyes when worn!
Be a Role Model
My favorite of all five palettes!
It's the right mix of pink and nude! It's so princessy!!! I just love this combo so much!
Be a Rockstar
A mix of pale pink and a sort of metallic bronze.
This looks sexy but sometimes I don't pair it together. I like the pale pink mixed with the shades from the Be a Celebrity palette.
Be a Hero
This is the combo for the I-like-smokey-eyes-but-not-too-dark look. HAHA! I barely use the shades together because I look awkward with just this two shades together. I usually add more colors with these.
I do love the matte shade though!
Be a Queen
This is the sexy smokey eye combo!
I think it's more rockstar-ish, while the Be a Rockstar palette looks more queenly. Haha!
The shades are all very pigmented, even the pale matte ones! It's really good. It can be a bit powdery and you will notice some fall off if you don't tap your brush. It's not powdery chalky so I still find the quality good. The texture is pretty smooth too.
I wear it with primer to make it last long because I have very oily eyelids. A primer can intensify the colors too.
That's all I can say about the Sephora Color Wishes Eyeshadow Palettes. Which one is your favorite?
