Today I have the new Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow Volume 3 Florals Palette that is being released for Spring 2016 to share with you. The palette features 9 gorgeous shades and offers a great variety of colors from pastels to brights to sultry smokey purples. The packaging is light and compact, I like the fact that it’s cardboard as the material can be shock absorbing making this palette very travel friendly.
The shadows, as expected are gorgeous and the formulation is fantastic. The formula is pretty much buttery and creamy across the board with one exception. The shadow pans are smaller than the individual ones you might buy at a MUFE counter but you still get a good quantity of product making this palette an excellent bang for your buck at C$49.
Starting from the top we have a dark blue (ME-230 Peacock Blue) with a slight shimmer and strong pigment, next we have a shimmery taupe 9 I-544 Pink Granite), good pigmentation and the last color is a smokey purple (ME-930 Black Purple) that has creamy texture and good pigmentation.
The second row features a bright, pigmented and shimmery turquoise green (D-236 Lagoon Blue), next we have a shimmery peach ( I-804 Golden Pink) and a gorgeous pastel lavender ( I-918 Lavender) with good pigmentation.
The last row features a pastel yellow (S-404 Straw Yellow), the formula is slightly chalky and the pigment is subtle, next we have a champagne color(ME-512Golden Beige) that has a wonderful creamy formula and strong pigment and lastly we have a highlight shade (I-528 Pearl) that has a more powdery texture but still has good pigmentation.
