I hadn’t bought an eyeshadow palette in something like…..ten years?   I’ve had the hankering for one or two and decided to ask my trusty makeup group what I should order.  Phyrra suggested the Emerald Pretty palette by Tarina Tarantino.   I checked it out on Sephora and instantly wanted it.  It had nice, wearable colors, a mirror, great packaging and it’s based on colors from the Emerald City which also happens to be a nickname for Seattle.

I was super happy to see that it had been delivered today and greedily ripped open the package to see all the pretties.

I love all the holographic touches to the palette. It really is as beautiful as the Emerald City!

I haven’t had a chance to try them on my face, but the colors applied beautifully and were a pleasure to work with.   I feel the colors are a really nice well conceptualized collection.   Bravo!  In case you’re interested, you can find it here:
