Essence New Palettes
There’s so much newness from this brand I don’t know where to start, so I picked out two of the newest city-themed palettes: one in the coolest tones I’ve seen in a while, Hello New York, and the other, G’Day Sydney, which is totally opposite in colour selection.
Strangely, this particular palette didn’t swatch as well as the warmer toned one – it’s an unusual selection of colours really that doesn’t say New York to me at all other than in a vaguely architectural way but if these are your shades, snap it up because this colourway doesn’t come round often. At £7 a palette, they’re immensely good value.
The first shade is iridescent – very pretty – but the second grey shade has barely any pigment. It takes a bit of working with as you can see.
This is the warm toned option, G’Day Sydney – there is also Ola Rio, also warm, and Salut Paris, in rose gold tones.
This one swatched like a dream – not a single shade lacked pigment, even the mattes, where if anything is going to be pigment poor, its those.
I love the hazy metallic blue in amongst the sunset shades. You’ll find them at your local Wilco store or online from around May time.
