and the two palettes side-by-side (SWOON)
Here is Metal post-swatch…
The Metal palette is not good. There are a few shades that are and I was dying over the shade second from the right but overall these guys are glittery, flaky and seal after just one finger pass. No good. This puppy went back to Ulta!
The Fire palette is sooooooo gooooooooooooooooood. If you’re going to get some of these palettes, the Fire palette needs to be one. The first yellow shimmer (far right) is a bit lacking and the dark shade four from the left isn’t as exciting as I expected it would be but the rest are buttery and beautiful.
I’m also interested in the Earth palette but it seemed too similar to Fire to make sense enough for me to purchase it. I bought these two palettes when Ulta was having a 30% off NYX sale so the price tags weren’t too out of bounds for my wallet!
