at the glossarie, we have a bit of a soft spot for demi lovato. (have you HEARD the girl sing recently?) on top of those impressive chops, she has collaborated with NYC color for a collection called lovatics by demi. the very first thing my eyes spotted was the eye shadow palette. i haven’t had the best luck with eyeshadow palettes from the drugstore – it seems that something is always lacking, whether it be pigmentation or longevity. the good news? totally not the case with this palette! it’s everything you could want and more, at under $10.
for $6.99 you get 12 shades, both warm and cool, to suit every skin tone, with a mixture of shimmer and mattes. there has been lots of buzz about this palette serving as a dupe for urban decay smokey and i agree. there are definite similarities in the shade colors and even the quality of the shadows is awesome. each shade is pigmented, buttery and lasts all day long on the lids. they are blendable and can easily create a natural eye look or a transformative smokey eye.
(side note: i have been getting the perfect even base for the shadows to stick to and still blend effortlessly with mac prep and prime eye shadow base.)
i was so pleasantly surprised with this palette, i have been singing its praises to everyone that i know and urging them (and you!) too go out and get your hand on this one while you can.
