Arabic Palette Tryout

Friday, 11 February 2011

Hello my lovelies! I'd almost forgotten but I bought an Arabic palette on eBay (after being inspired by miss Nada), around mid January, and it arrived this week! 
I managed to swatch a couple colours to see just how good the pigmentation is... and I have to say its great! The only thing I don't like about the palette is its texture; its quite grainy which is a weird consistency for eyeshadow, but once it melts on the eyelid it looks lovely and rich. So don't go using it on cold blooded people or it may look like cack!
The palette is called "Miss Anny - 80 Makhmali Eyeshadow" and I got it from this seller (but I'd go straight here for the palettes coz they sell a lot of random stuff).
They're really quite cheap for the amount of colours you get and for the pigmentation, but enough talking, lets see the palette!

I have to admit, a lot of the colours look like they've been doubled or even tripled, or maybe just very slight differences in tone e.g. browns. One shade I spotted amongst the rest was:
look familiar?? Maybe not to some, but it defo stood out to me, as an UD Fishnet dupe! I'll have to swatch them together to see properly but I'm sure of it, coz it's my all time favourite colour; two toned pink and purple.
Anyway, here's some swatches from this palette, just random colours that stood out to me:
 the Fishnet dupe is second from right; gorgeous!

I look forward to trying some looks out with this! As ever, if you have any requests, feel free to comment or email!

  5. I too saw the palette on Miss Nada page and automatically fell in love with it and had to absolutely order it. I love how it's very sparkly compared and highly pigmented kinda in your face make-up (lool) compared to the manly palette. So can't wait for mine to come.
