Anyway on to the pictures
From left to right Kinky, Freestyle and Mushroom
Mushroom, Backdoor and Blackout
Barlust, Rockstar and Evidence
Evidence, Loaded and Asphalt
Kinky: A gorgeous highlight shade, this is a matte colour but isn't chalky at all.
Freestyle: A subtle matte brown, great for blending
Mushroom: An absolutely stunning taupe, incredibly pigmented and blends like a dream
Backdoor: A matte dark brown, it's slightly more powdery than the other mattes but still nicely pigmented and blendable.
Blackout: One of the most intense matte blacks I have tried.
Barlust: A gorgeous medium bronzey brown, very pigmented and absolutely gorgeous.
Rockstar: A slightly red toned purple, again very pigmented.
Evidence: A navy blue shimmer shade, this is the least pigmented of all the colours but is still decent.
Loaded: A blackened green, this is stunning and blends beautifully.
Asphalt: A gunmetal shade with gorgeous multicoloured shimmer.
I already had Mushroom, Rockstar, Evidence and Loaded from previous palettes so did some comparison swatches, Smoked palette on the left and older ones on the right
There is a huge difference between these two, the swatch on the right is from one of the BOS and as you can see it is much lighter and browner. The new version of this shadow is more intense and a lot more pigmented.
Not much difference between these two although the newer version was a tad more pigmented.
Again no real difference here, it felt as though the new version applied a bit easier but the end result is pretty much the same.
This was the only shade that is not as good as a previous release. The swatch on the right is from the 15th Anniversary palette and it is much more pigmented.
Overall I am very happy with this palette, it's such a nice mix of colours and will be perfect for travelling. Have you been tempted by this palette?
