The other day while strolling through a local shopping mall I found myself in the Icing, drawn in by the sparkly things like a moth to a flame. Now, I'm not exactly sure when the Icing got a chic new updated, but they are not the Icing I remember from high school.
Once inside, I realized they had quite a large cosmetics area. At first I didn't even give it a glance but, alas, I ended up sitting on a stool swatching shadows and liners while Michael impatiently looked at me. When the associate told me their cosmetics were buy one get one 50% off, I figured it a good enough excuse to pick up a couple things to test and review.
So, today I'm sharing a review of the Icing Nearly Nude palette.
This palette retails for $14.50 and has 18 colors, 9 mattes and 9 shimmers. The palette comes in a cardboard packaging which feels sturdy enough and isn't too bulky. Nothing elegant but it gets the job done. It comes with a plastic protector sheet which tells you the titles of the shadows. I find these plastic inserts pointless because who is going to bother to keep that, and without it you don't know the shadows' names. I'm not sure why they don't just print the names on the packaging. But, it's a minor detail.
Let's talk shadows.
