Twists of Tartan Eyeshadow Palette ($36.00) is a colorful palette with a slight cool tone running through it.
This palette includes six eyeshadows: Lady’s Prance (clay), Rolled Gold (gold), High Spirits (shimmered avocado), Vainglorious (metallic maroon), Set to Dance (dark royal blue), and Bows & Curtseys (metallic hunter green).
The palette contains 0.19 oz. worth of eyeshadow along with a tiny 213 brush, which means you’re paying $190/oz. In comparison, if you were to buy potted eyeshadows, MAC eyeshadows run at $290/oz. and pans run at $230/oz. These palettes do offer a little more bang for your buck than if you were to buy shades individually.
Despite loving how colorful this palette is upon first glance, the pigmentation leaves something to be desired. There is just a lack of it in the majority of these shades (all but the gold and beige), and I really can’t understand why. I had some textural issues with half the shades–Lady’s Prance and Rolled Gold have a lovely smooth texture, but Set to Dance and Bows & Curtseys had a much chalkier texture. Overall, I’m not too keen on this palette.
