88 and 120 palettes are a huge money saver, they’re relatively inexpensive for the amount of color you get, and generally have impressive color payoff for the price. I have used the original and shimmer 88 palettes in the past and found them to have great color payoff and be well worth their price, especially for new makeup lovers who are looking to expand their eyeshadow collection without breaking the bank.
This is one of the newest members of the 88 palette family: The Prism Palette. When I first got it, I was really impressed with the way it looked alone, the colors look gorgeous and bright!!
It has been sitting on my desk for the past month, and I decided to play with it last night, because I was filming a video and just wanted a little makeup on. I have to admit, I was pretty disappointed with the results! Here are some swatches:
This picture shows; the shadows are really hit-or-miss, and I really don’t like that. When I went to apply colors on my eyes, barely anything showed up (and I had a base on and was packing the color on!) Some colors, like the red and pink at the top right, are super pigmented, like the other 88 palettes, but some are really, really a let down, like the yellows, that green in the very top right corner, or that blue on the bottom right.
and that is basically two swatches layered :/ In my opinion, I’d skip this one and go for one of the original palettes.
