Blue Had Me At Hello- Review and some dupes

My darling husband surprised me with this little jewel from my wish list last night, so I had to review it.


The palette consists of: row one- a cream highlight and a slightly mint toned highlight. row 2- a silver and a blue-green. row 3- a blackened navy with glitter and a navy. row 4- a matte black and a black with glitter.

I went through and swatched some other shadows that I thought these might dupe for and have them for you below.

Overall Thoughts:

This palette is well worth the $4.99 plus tax. It was at my local Walgreen's on the wall with the permanent collection of Wet N Wild products.

The shadows are creamy and super pigmented. They blend amazingly and have great staying power. I swatched my hand, showered and slept and still woke up with swatches on my hand. I found them way easier to work with than my darker Mac shadows. The Mac shadows were very hard to swatch and blend. In fact, Mac Carbon is probably one of the worst shadows I own.

I would highly recommend picking this up. I can't wait to grab the other ones.
