But I digress. Finally, after all this time I at last got around to trying more of the T'estimo Layered Impact Eyes I absolutely adore. I won't go into details again as I already described the generals with 03 Beige. The one I'm reviewing today is 05 Rose, which is more of a cooler palette with cooler pinks and purple. I have 4 out of the 5 palettes, and I love these so much I'm thinking of getting 04 Blue too just to have them all even though I can't manage cooler colors very well on my warmer skin tone.
05 Rose consists of 4 colors:
- Top right: base and highlighter, shimmer, low intensity. A pale lilac pink so smooth it feels like a cream shadow! Whenever I'm super duper lazy, this is all I wear to brighten up my eyes.
- Left bar: sparkly top wash, shimmer, very sheer. A pale lavender that's extremely sparkly and if you dislike glitter, stay very far away from these T'estimo palettes. I loooooove sparklies though, so these palettes are my babies :D
- Lower middle: medium crease shade, shimmer, medium intensity. A fleshy pink that blends in very well with my skin tone despite some violet in it.
- Lower right: liner shade, luminous satin, medium intensity. A deep blue-toned purple with even bluer purple shimmers that are super fine. I was expecting it to be pigmented like the peacock green liner shade in palette 03 Beige, but despite the pigmented appearance in the swatch, it's not. It turns out to be only medium intensity, which is nice for me since that means I have wider margin of error to get sloppy with :P
You're probably wondering how I keep up with this cool-toned palette. I'm actually very shocked myself to find this purple palette works perfectly well on my very warm skintone. I thought that lavender sparkly shade would deal me a death blow but it didn't and I actually love it looks on me - wow! Anyhoo, that's why I'm thinking of getting the blue palette now too, hoping it will adapt itself like this one. Wish me luck!
