REVIEW: BLACK TANGO PALETTE from Make Up For Ever !
I’m soooooooo excited to have the Black Tango collection in my hands!!!!
The collection is super new and did not launch in the middle east yet- Will launch in Bahrain by Sept 15, 2012 !
Black Tango is an amazing new sultry collection. Danny Sanz, Creator & Artisitc Director of Makeup4ever was inspired by tango dancers and the Latin Spirit of Seduction. Keep in mind Danny has south American Roots! She then created an easy to use and long lasting products to be perfectly tailored to extreme stage conditions!
“For this collection, I wanted to transport us into the hushed atmosphere of the Milonga room.
Black Tango is an invitation to seduction and the world of dance. Behind the delicate lace of a fan, the deep gaze of a woman bewitches a mysterious partner. The two words driving my creativity when creating the products were incredible hold and emotion… for a passionate night of tango.”
The collection includes the smoky palette (aqua creams), 3 nail polishes, 1 new aqua cream and 1 new aqua rouge.
The collection is limited Edition- and I’m going to focus on the eye palette now!
BLACK TANGO PALETTE
This beautiful palette shows a beautiful laced fan printed… beautiful packaging! All red and black- colors of seduction.
The palette has 4 new aqua cream shades- all new & limited edition.
They are super pigmented- and they have a pearly effect.
The colors are:
*Black with Red Highlights
*Black with Green Highlights
*Black with Blue Highlights
To me, those color scream smoky & call for mystery! Usually when you hear the word smoky you would straight away think black, but I love how this if focused on other dark shades. Recent Smoky palettes are all powder based- so to be aqua cream and dark really makes this palette unique!
You can apply with your fingers, as they are super creamy or use the double sided flat brush provided in the palette. I usually throw out such brushes, but I actually liked this one !
I really liked how the eyeshadows blended easy & melt away when applied- they don’t need to be mixed with any liquid etc. The colors tend to look matte after application, but with a hint of pearl in them.
I suggest using synthetic brushes with aqua creams- and not ones made from real animal hair!
The ivory I would use for highlighting and the rest I would use for full lids.
To be honest, these aqua eye shadows are super long-lasting!!! They are waterproof too! I also heard that the creamy eye shadows include some oils which Evaporate straightly after application in order for the pigments to be fixed on the skin.
Checkout my swatches below to see how the colors really look like:
Below is a special illustrated guide to show how to use on of the creamy eye shadows!
The only thing you should keep in mind is that the product is very long lasting & waterproof which means removing it is really annoying… U might try wet facial wipes… they won’t remove the whole thing. So I really suggest makeup4ever’s sensitive eyes waterproof removing solution! With a cotton pad, it will be gone in seconds!
The palette will be sold for approx in the 18-20 BD range.
