You might remember I posted the above pic in this post when LMdB posted it in their Facebook Page. All LMdB enthusiasts are not head over heels excited to get their hands on this much coveted “best of the best” palette of sorts.
Today I bring to you swatches I took in store of all 18 shades. Now, in store lighting is notorious for being harsh so I apologize if my pictures seem weird or off to you. I did try my best with white balancing but I’m not an expert photographer or photoshop-er.
I did get the time to play around with the palette. They are a dream to apply with a sponge tip applicator (which I used for swatching) as with a brush. The quality is again up there as expected from LMdB. Even the blackest of black which is on the top left (if you’re looking at the above picture) and the whitest white on the bottom right are not chalky. They did blend like a dream. The colors are a mixture of new and old favorites so if you’re looking for a palette made up of entirely new shades then this is not what you’re looking for.
I swatched using a sponge tip applicator. The arm is obviously not mine but it is the arm of the ever pretty Kayla. Let’s get it going with the swatches …
Best Things in Beauty has a picture of the palette that she took in store as well as shade names and color combo suggestions from LMdB’s very own Director of Color, Mikey Castillo. Check it out HERE.
Referring to the picture at the top of the post, this is the first column swatching from top to bottom beginning from the right. Did that make sense? Probably not but it’s easy to pair the swatch to the color in the pan.
So what do you think? I think and believe this is a must-have for the serious enthusiast and a no brainer must-have for someone who wants to get into Le Metier de Beaute. All 18 gorgeous shades for $95. What a deal!
