I really love this palette I didnt think i would because I haven’t had very good luck with finding super pigmented eyeshadows from Luxury Brands.
I was quite surprised ((….I get surprised a lot as you can tell haha)) how pigmented these actually were. The Pure Chromatics Palette can be used either wet or dry which I thought was a great thing because if you mix it with some Sealing Gel by Illamasqua then you have the perfect shadow to stay on forever!
I recently found out that this Palette was basically the Facebook Palette that YSL had bought out to celebrate its fans on Social Media. The palette is exactly the same as the Facebook Palette without the Logo on the front
As you can see its exactly the same which i thought was awesome because when that gets discontinued you can still get the Palette you like.
Each shadow is quite pigmented by its self in powder form the glitter retains in the shadow quite well which i was pleased with, i found using a cream base helps more to adhere it to the lids
When I said they were pigmented I wasn’t kidding, they are quite amazing to work with they have a creamy texture but are powders. What I love is that they blend seamlessly without any effort when blending.
I took a picture with flash as well to show you have reflective these are and in the light how gorgeous they look.
When used with water i wouldnt say there is much of a difference but the glitter is more noticable in the purple shade when wet but there isn’t much of a difference as I can see maybe they will end up lasting longer when used wet but i used Illamasqua sealing Gel which will definitely make them last longer
