PURRFECT FOR MY HALLOWEEN COSTUME
For the Halloween that just passed, I was a cat, and I was looking for something that would give me the 'myseterious green cat eye' look, so when I found this, I absolutely fell inlove. The colours are gorgeous and dramatic. I like how there are several shades of green that I could play around with to make the perfect look. The only downside I found is that the sparkly white colour it came with was very flaky and didn't adhere too well to my eyes, even with primer. All in all, I really liked this product... great for oober dramatic eye looks.
I own Forest Fury and my mother owns the purple and blue ones (unsure of names) and we love them. They're extremely pigmented, especially the pastels. I always find myself reaching for this when I want to do a green eye. They're very soft and blendable. The top gold glitter is extremely sparkly with great staying power. The dark green isn't the best simply because the pan makes it a bit hard to pick up. The neon green is my one of my favorites. Very bright, sparkly, and neon. My other favorite would be the mid-toned green. I've never seen anything like it! It's sort of the effect you get putting a matte topcoat over glitter nailpolish in an eyeshadow, and it's extremely deep. The bottom shade, finally, is a nice gold highlight. For the price? Not so much of a value, but as a drugstore palette, it's impressive.
I love green eye shadows, the ones in this palette are really pretty but as soon as I used them, it seem that the beautiful golden shimmer/glitter was gone.. I enjoyed more the yellowish, pearl and light green colors then the darker ones. Also the shape of the pans makes it difficult to get the product and for the price i really don't think is worth it...
I adore these pallets! I have several different ones! My only complaint on the purple one is the fabulously bright purple color doesn't "stay" it is such a pretty color but it just doesn't vivid all day! Other than that the colors blend and are fab! I am madly in love with the green pallet!
Very versatile eye shadow
I bought the Forest Fury and I really thought it was going to be too pigmented for daily use. I was SO wrong! I was able to use a light touch with my brushes and create a beautiful wear to work look. All I can say is that if you're worried about it being too dramatic - don't be. I have fair/medium skin and very fair eyelids and this wasn't dramatic at all. I did try a heavier look, and based on that, I'd say it would be a good evening shadow as well. All in all, a great product.
The green palette is my favorite out of the three that I tryed. Each color is HIGHLY pigmented and gorgeous!! I do think they are a little over priced though. Ten bucks for five shadows, especially drugstore shadows is a little steep. And the pan isn't very big, and the shape of them makes it a little difficult to get the shadow out, but I am being nit picky.
If I were you I would buy the green and blue one and pass on the purple.
