AFTER YEARS & YEARS OF LOOKING...

[ Edited ]

Back in the '90s, Victoria's Secret carried an eyeshadow palette trio of soft, beautiful pink/mauve shades.  I fell in love with it.  Received so many compliments.  A couple of months later I went back for one more palette as a back up.  All gone.

 

Long story short, I have scoured websites, B & M stores and wherever I could for something similar with absolutely no luck. Would purchase single shades similar, but not really what I had back in the day.

 

That is until last week...

 

Was browing Ulta and lo and behold, I found the absolutely PERFECT eyeshadow palette!!!   It is the Marvelous Mauves by Dose of Colors.  The pinks/mauves are so soft and matte.  Lovely, lovely.  SO excited.  They also make palettes with browns, coppers, etc.  Can't tell you how happy I am.  Smiley Very Happy

 

Oh, and by the way, you bet I'm ordering another one.  Smiley Wink

Why don't you stock up?

I have that mauve Dose of Color palette. I was very happy to find it, the colors are beautiful, but it turned out to be a big disappointment. The eyeshadow is very dry and powdery with lots of fallout during the application. I always end up with flecks all over my under eye area and on cheekbones. I quit using it after a few tries. If I knew your address, I’d mist the thing with alcohol and send it to you.

I stated as much in my last sentence.

Thanks for the heads up.  Will hold off ordering another palette if I have the same experience.

I took that last sentence to mean you were only getting "one."   To me that is not stocking up! Smiley Wink

You need to buy a few if you love it so much.  You know how things are discontinued.

I also have the Marvelous Mauves palette. I like it.
