What a piece of loveliness this palette is (or was!). I was so delighted to find it reduced almost to half price at Sephora a few years ago, although the down side of that was that the whole Tarina Tarantino line was being discontinued there. I’d been wanting this palette mainly for the shade “Dandy Lion” but all the shadows in this palette are outstanding and the colours are so wearable. I do find Glinda’s Kiss to be a bit odd – although it looks white, it seems to apply an odd shade of pale, pale, really pale aqua/turquoise. It’s easy to do a really lovely, dramatic eye using these shadows but Sawdust Heart – a rich dark brown – is a great every day/classic shade and Dandy Lion and Very Wicked delight me every time I use them Ozma is gorgeous and even though I’m not a huge fan of silver eyeshadow, I enjoy wearing Silver Shoes because it’s a deeper and more complex type of silver grey.
I got this palette when Sephora was clearing out Tarina Tarantino’s products at greatly reduced prices. I’d wanted this palette since first seeing it here at Temptalia but didn’t really need it just for the sake of 2 shades in it (Dandy Lion especially, and Very Wicked). But at 40% off, it was too good to pass up. This might not be the most versatile and “work day looks” type palette but I love it. All the shadows are typical of TT’s eye shadows – pigmented, smooth, blendable – and I do find some of the shades more wearable than you might expect at first. My only “problem” is Glinda’s Kiss, which seems to turn sort of greenish on me rather than the “iridescent white” it is described as.
