Buxom Color Choreography in Swing

a target run turns into a sephora purchase *smh* I have a problem !!! I knew that Buxom which is now exclusively at Sephora was launching eyeshadow palettes, now, I love that line. I love the eyeliners, the little cream shadows, the lipglosses are my favorite for sure but I felt they fell a little short with the blushes. I swatched them all and I just didn`t think they were pigmented enough, so I was very interested to see how well these eyeshadow palettes would perform.

so the actual name is Buxom Color Choreography in the shade "Swing". I have a crazy amount of neutral/natural eyeshadows, hell, the two UD naked palettes are more than enough but I am just absolutely drawn to these kinds of shades. this particular palette has 5 shades - vanilla, light brown, peach and dark brown, pretty straight to the point there. not terribly expensive, $36.00 for .26oz and when you compare this to the $59 Dior for 0.21oz and the $49 Lancome for .141oz (I swear that`s what it says on the box).

the packaging is so pretty, black, shiny and sleek with Buxom on the top in silver but it`s the kind that attracts dust. the shades of each eyeshadow are on the back which I truly appreciate. huge mirror and a double ended brush applicator, a flat end one and a liner one. the colors are just .... ok you`ll see why I picked it. Jive is a peach eyeshadow that looks shimmery in the pan. Flip is a matte light brown. Shag is a nude with shimmer, it`s the biggest in the palette and has Buxom embossed on it. Toss is the matte vanilla shade and Jitterbug is dark brown with some serious gold shimmer running through it. now as far as the eyeshadows go, they`re no where near close to chalky, they`re soft and buttery and very pigmented - on my arm - Jitterburg has some amazing shimmer and Shag seems a touch frosty.

oh and look at that, after I finished swatching, I wiped my arm with a dry towel and you can still see the dark brown, which tells me these carry the same staying power as the rest of the buxom line, love it !!!

so far I am loving this palette, I`m just very impressed and can`t wait to see what these shadows look like on my eyes. and added bonus of buying this was that I once again qualified as a sephora VIB so I got my 10% coupon for next time, which will be awesome since I swatched the MUFE aqua cream pots and I think I`m in love lol
