Yves Saint Laurent Pure Chromatics Wet &Dry e/s #19

Pure Chromatics #19 ($48 for 0.18 oz) e/s is a gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous quad that has Sonia written all over it. It has a pink that is more quiet and lady like (cause we all know I'm a lady;P), a slightly slightly pinkish white, a TAUPE (#winning), and a dark bronze/chocolate brown. Absolute perfection. The texture is unbelievable and unlike anything I've ever used before, like silk instead of buttery. Super shimmery and sparkly without being loud and hoorish and gives my eyes the best glow. This was worth every penny. I know what you're all going to say, "$48 for a quad? My first KID didn't cost that much (DISCLAIMER: I don't have any kids so I don't know how much they actually cost, I'm just improvising work with me here;) )! You're freaking crazy Sonia and you need holy water." But trust me, it's seriously worth it. I recommend you swatch these new palettes and fall head over heels like I did. Let the magic begin...Hold on to your knickers!

  *Fans self* Why I DO declare!
Dry they go on sheer but nicely pigmented with loads of perfect sparkles. When wet (use the silicone applicator it comes with, it's quite useful) on pigmented, creamy, and the shimmer pops more. I personally like dry as I'm not used to using e/s wet. But I'm sure most of you will prefer them wet since dramatic eye looks are quite popular.:) I just don't have the OO for them. Wait, I'm getting a little sidetracked here.
Another thing I like about these quads is that almost all of them have a taupe (Hi, my name is Sonia and I am a taupe hoor) so it means I need to get them. I can't do just one.
 In conclusion, my big ass eyes love shimmer and sparkle so this palette was a success. *stamps Sonia approved stamp all over this post* Thanks for reading!
