I never thought I'd get my hands on one of these, ever. The Naked Palette I was pretty much like "yeah, it'll make it's way over eventually" but this? No way. I've eyed them sadly on ebay for some time and put them in the "never going to happen" pile. Then one day, on twitter, during an idle conversation about unattainable eyeshadow, my good friend Sarah mentioned that she had a spare one she could do without, and did I want it? Answer: I squealed.
Granted, this isn't usual FP programming, but I'm looking at it through packaging eyes, not beautyblogger eyes. I've done a variation of this on my blog to show swatches and go into a bit more girly detail, if that's more your speed.
More after the break:
I am completely intimidated by this thing. It's beautiful, gracefully and perfectly designed and just completely breathtaking. It's art. Thankfully the incredible pop-up section is completely separate from the make up tray, and the pop up bit is secured by a strong magnet, so you aren't going to muck up the art with your make up application.
This was released to coincide with the Alice in Wonderland release, and as far as I'm concerned, it's the only good thing to come out of it. It is one gigantic slab of beautiful, and strictly a "special occasions" palette. Men, if you ever see one of these, secure it for your lady. They will lose their damn minds. But it IS limited edition and your chances are slim. Don't get too excited.
AND back to your normal programming...
