After my initial excitement with the Kiss Kiss My Eyes Glamorize Shadows, I came back to Plaza in high spirit for one of the newest released palettes 05 Bordeaux Beige BE-2 (there is yet a new release, another 06 Pink Beige palette!). In fact, I had so much confident in this palette that I didn't bother swatching the tester!
Well, big mistake. I really should have played with the tester, because then I would see that all the colors in this palette, while looking more neutral in the pan, would actually turn very warm and reddish on me T.T The funny thing is that they don't make me look terrible, just terri-fying +.+ Keeping up with my nicknames for these palettes, the 02 Chocolate Brown BR-1 is the go-getter, the 03 Pink Beige PK-1 is the girl next door (yes, there are 2 Pink Beige palettes, 03 and now with 06), the 04 Wine Brown WN-1 is the femme fatale, which is already pushing the OL envelope, this 05 Bordeaux Beige BE-2 definitely crashes the scale in the opposite direction of the OL spectrum, and I humbly call it the [more brownish version of] Lady Vengeance. Umm, eeeps?!?

In all honesty, I look totally badass with these eye shadows on and I would so wear it everyday, just that my definition of a nice morning doesn't involve scaring the crap out of a train full of people O.o So yeah, if the femme fatale is bullying you at the office, this Lady Vengeance palette should make a strong enough statement to get her to back the hell off and keep within five feet away from you at all times ^.^ But other than the obvious downers in the form of a death glare, this palette is just as silky soft in texture and equally pigmented, if not even more so, than the other 4 palettes in the line.
The colors don't look so bad in the pan, do they?
- Left: medium crease shade, shimmer, medium intensity. Appears a fleshy pink beige in the pan, swatched more of a peach with red undertones, and goes on me with a lot more red, almost rusty!
- Middle: base and highlighter, shimmer, medium intensity. A very pale powder pink that is on the cooler side, which totally clashes with the warmer red tones of the other 3 colors in the palettes, which doesn't help my case at all -.-' Also, this color is has the most shimmers out of all the base and highlighter colors in the other palettes.
- Right: medium crease shade, luminous, high intensity. Appears plummy in the pan, swatched a browned red with some plum, and goes on me a potent faded old blood stain color +.+ Sigh.
- Bottom: liner shade, satin, high intensity. Appears a deep plum in the pan, swatched a deep maroon, but goes on me a rustier reddish brown.
