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.
Tarina Tarantino Emerald Pretty Eyeshadow Palette ($36.00 for 0.54 oz.) consists of six full-sized eyeshadows inspired by The Emerald City. They include: Glinda’s Kiss (iridescent white), Silver Shoes (pearlized silver), Dandy Lion (pearlized olive green), Saw Dust Heart (matte deep brown), Ozma (pearlized aqua blue), and Very Wicked (pearlized emerald green).
