I first spotted Make Up For Ever's Black Tango Palette when I was in Italy a few weeks ago. They were sold out of it & I panicked that it wouldn't be available in the U.S. Luckily it is. The palette includes 4 Aqua Cream shadows- which is are so creamy & delicious they easily apply as liners. Here I sport the emerald hue on my top lash line & the navy on my bottom lash line.
I was a bit apprehensive of the reddish hue- since I feel pinks & reds near the eye can make them appear bloodshot. But the shade is a deep black plum that's very wearable. I covered my entire lid with it while playing with Halloween looks. Make-Up For Ever is such a great brand in that they offer truly theatrical grade coverage & colors without the heavy feel. This shade reminds me a bit of my beloved go to nail color- OPI's Midnight In Moscow. I used the white shade in the palette as a highlighter.
The compact itself is a work of art, like a Japanese paint box. It states on the compact to close each pot tightly, which I make sure to do since I noticed the tester on display at Sephora had dried out a little. The textures & intensity make this palette a must have. It's also a great value at $45, when individual Aqua Creams (though larger) retail for $23 each. I say put it on your holiday wish list!
Peace. Love. Lipgloss.
