* Unfortunately, the palettes are glued into the displayer, which makes it difficult to read any labels with names of the shadows in the palettes! Collection information does not provide any color descriptions, so the names are approximate and our best guesses. If you know for sure of an error, please let us know!

For the Look in the Boxes, they contain permanent items, so I encourage you to check out our Gallery to browse your favorites.

    The Graphic Garden palette definitely has gorgeous colors. On another blog, the Fresh Cut palette was said to have very poor color pay off & their swatches proved it. However, your swatches, Christine, look more vibrant. Did you have to layer a lot with this specific palette to get it to show??

    IT’s pretty but thankfully for my budget I will be skipping.

    Those are so pretty! We don’t get these here though about two years ago we received some stuff from Novel Twist sooo I’m keeping my fingers crossed for the Graphic Garden Palette <3

  4. I would love to mix and match these as I really like 3 colours from each palette – don’t think I can justify getting both… :S Love Garden Bed and Baby Bloom too. *sigh*

    Does anyone have the Shell Pearl Beauty Powder from the last time it was released? I couldnt find any swatches on any blogs and I ordered the Sweet Tease Look Box because i love beauty powders but i’d really like to see it in advance. this was the only look box that appealed to me because the rest of the items in the other 2 look boxes are all in the regular line.

  8. Jewels

    is Graphic Garden being released at Mac stores and counters or is it exclusive to Nordstrom?
