Dry but packs pigment
from Houston, TX
I ordered this and received a broken palette, right on par for Ulta's shipping department...this has become a regular occurrence with all my online orders!
The palette was a mess, about 20% of the pans were broken but I wanted to swatch the ones that I could. I cleaned it up, took damp cotton pads and wiped down the unbroken pans to rid what powdered residue from the broken pans that I could. I dried it overnight and swatched this morning.
There are some gorgeous colors in the Socialite palette, rich cranberries, sunset oranges, vibrant pinks and corals, and a good array of neutrals. What I was able to swatch, all packed a punch pigment-wise but they were dry in texture. I swatched with my fingers, since this baby is going in the trash, and did not use a brush. I have a feeling that the darker shades that are dry in texture will take some work to blend. There is a nice mix of mattes, shimmers and metallics.
I have a replacement palette coming, thanks to one of the wonderful CSRs (not all of them are as wonderful as the lovely one I spoke to Thursday evening), as soon as I get an undamaged palette I will play around and come back to edit my review.
