Finally the review, after mentioning this palette many times, I've actually sat down to write the review it deserves. It's only taken me 11 months, I'm a fast worker like that!
The palette comprises of 5 matte shades and they are some of the best mattes I've ever used in terms of texture, blendability ( not a real word I know) and pigmentation.
1.Ting is very similar to MAC Brule and makes a beautiful highlight or all over colour to even out your lids.
2. Maowi is a light taupe- grey. I tend to wear this one all over the lid.
3. Pom Pom is a darker taupe and blends like an absolute dream.
4. Black Bear is a dark flat black perfect for lining the eyes and because it's so easy to blend, you can use it to darken the outer v too.
5. Sislet is a deep rust shade and possibly the most puzzling shade of the palette. I use it the same way I saw Louise Young use it to warm up the crease and it immediately adds depth and 'interest'.
The swatches are in natural light without a primer.
I was lucky enough to watch Louise Young in action at IMATS last year and she is a lovely lady on top of being very beautiful and elegant. She was explaining her demo step by step and it was a pleasure to watch her work.
Have you ever tried the Louise Young palette? Or any of her brilliant brushes?
