I have a very exciting new palette to show you today!
I received the upcoming Diego Dalla Palma Snow palette this morning and had to show you all before I got swatching! To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Universal Films on June 1st 2012 Snow White & The Huntsman with be gracing the big screen starring Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron! With Diego Dalla Palma being the official cosmetics partner with this lovely palette which I am sure will become a bit of a collectors item.
The palette consists of six eyeshadows - 3 shimmer (Snow, Shield and Mirror Mirror) and 3 matte shades (Fairest, Destiny and Battleground) so a good mix for once and also a lovely texture! Plus a full size lipstick in The Wicked Queen as well as a black eyeliner pencil in Dark Night.
The palette will be priced at a reasonable £25 (I personally feel this is such a good price as Diego Dalla Palma is a high end brand with excellent quality products) and will be available on Tesco Direct from May (yes, Tesco Direct do sell makeup now!) and in stores from June... though I am thinking it will be only the Tesco stores that stock Diego Dalla Palma.
From first impressions I do love all the eyeshadow shades in the palette especially Mirror Mirror, Shield and Destiny and the lipstick is just beautiful ( it also has a nice vanilla scent). Plus everyone needs a good black eyeliner pencil... I know I love my brown Diego Dalla Palma eyeliner so so much and do use it most days. So for me this is a palette that I will be able to use fully... though if you aren't too confident with red lipstick it may be a bit of a shame.
My only gripe about the palette really is that it could of been a bit more out there is the way of the design - this is no Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland palette. Which is a bit of a shame as I think if it did have a 3D aspect to it the palette would of been pretty epic. But we can't have everything can we!
Overall I think any inspired by palette makes for an interesting product and just something a bit different so they will always get a lot of love. But hand on heart I do really like the products in this and really feel Diego Dalla Palma have done their research for their first ever palette so it is very user friendly. Once I have used this I will of course do a full review with swatches!
This really got me thinking... If you could have a movie inspired palette which film would it be inspired/collaborate with and which brand would you chose to do it?
For me it would be Avatar (blue skin anyone?) and I think I would maybe have Urban Decay do it!
Let me know in the comments if you can think up any good collaborations!
