I love makeup but I've never really experimented with it until I started reading other beauty blogs. I love, love colors.

Profound Eyeshadows

This is one of my many eyeshadow palettes that I possess. I purchased this off of Amazon with a free gift certificate and haven't used it. (I love my mineral make-up too much.) This swatching post is the first time I've ever used this palette. I'm glad I did because there are definitely a few colors that I think would be great as part of my daily work getup.

I thought it was creamy at first but it might just have been the bristles on my brush. It's got a bit of flyaway, more than I would prefer. It's not as pigmented as the palette shows and it might be because of the high shimmer. I didn't use a primer or base or anything of the sort to help the eyeshadow adhere either. In any case, I'm not disappointed. I've discovered a few colors I would definitely love to make a part of my morning work getup.

Originally, I was going to do all these swatches on my eye. Then I realized I was too lazy and that it's an overall stupid idea. You'll have to settle for my arm. :D

I love looking at the palette. It's so colorful. :)

As you can see from these pictures, the colors don't show very well but it's great if you love shimmer. I'm not unhappy with the purchase but I still prefer my mineral makeup more. :)
