Make Up For Ever created a new palette for Spring 2013- Technicolor Palette. This palette combines neutrals and bold colors to create bold looks. The Technicolor palette is inspired by the 1930’s transition between black and white film, and full color.
MUFE’s Technicolor palette consists of eight colors and two eye shadow brushes, all packed into one small palette. I love the packaging for this palette; it’s very modern and hip, bold and bright. When you get in the palette you have eight shadows:
Black, Yellow, Apple Green, Turquoise, Lilac, white, espresso, and yellow beige.
Here’s my pigmentation/ finish roundup:
Black- Pigmentation was fair; matte finish
Yellow- Pigmentation was fair; matte finish
Apple Green- Pigmentation was poor; matte finish
Turquoise- Pigmentation was poor; matte finish
Lilac- Pigmentation was poor; matte finish
White- Pigmentation was fair, shimmer finish.
Espresso- Pigmentation was fair, matte finish
Yellow Beige- Pigmentation was fair, shimmer finish
Overall, pigmentation could have been better, but if you have the right tools, you can still make this palette work. Pigmentation improved with a primer, and you can pick up more eye shadow if you use a stiffer brush.
In the first photo, I swatched with a stiff brush but no primer. I did have to go over the colors more than once, this is not a one swipe deal:
In this photo, I used the same stiff brush, but I also used primer (Make Up For Ever Eye Prime). Notice you can see yellow beige better than in the first picture:
Make Up For Ever Techicolor Palette retails for $45 and you can pick this up all Spring at Sephora!
