I'm Not Addicted to Drugs, I'm Addicted to Glamour! THREE 4D Eye Palette in Party Monster

 Don't you just love THREE's simplistic, yet chic textured exterior packaging. 

In all honesty, I was very underwhelmed the first time I swatched the 4D palettes...but that didn't stop me from purchasing four of them :P


The quads rubber finish has a delightful, lightweight, yet refined feel to it, keeping with the brands bare minimum packaging aesthetic. Another small packaging detail I enjoyed was that the color of the THREE logo on the compact coincides with an eyeshadow color in the quad. I love when brands add these little nuances to their products :DD


The quads come with a generous sized mirror. I like that the mirror extends out to align itself with the base of the compact. The brushes included are descent; you get a synthetic eye shadow brush, and a dual-ended brush with a mini synthetic shadow brush on one end, and a pointed sponge-tip applicator on the other.


The more I played with the colors and textures, the sooner I realized how brilliant and beautiful these shadows were. The 4D's are more of an accent palette, whereas each shadows can be layered on top of one another to add or enhance dimension.


Color description from left to right:

A muted jasmine yellow with gold and silver sparkles. This shadow is probably the dark horse of the quad. When swatched, it's dry (yet smooth), powdery, and full of sparkles. But, when layered, the shadow works beautifully at transforming the base color.

A gorgeous shimmery bronzed brown cream shadow with tiny yellow and pink flecks. The texture of this shadow is quite unusual; a hybrid between a dry cream/buttery shadow...hope that made since.

A pinkish-brown satin with pink flecks and a bronze sheen. I simply adore this color!! I could stare at swatches of it all day...and I have :P

A sheer pink-beige with pink and silver sparkles. Another accent shadow that deliverers a brilliant twinkle to the lids.

  9. I believe everything said made a ton of sense. However, what about this?

    what if you added a little content? I am not
    saying your information is not good, however suppose you added a title
    to maybe get people's attention? I mean "I'm Not Addicted to Drugs,
    I'm Addicted to Glamour! THREE 4D Eye Palette in Party Monster" is a little plain. You ought to peek at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create news
    headlines to get viewers to click. You might add a video or a related
    picture or two to grab people interested about everything've got to say. Just my opinion, it could make your website a little bit more interesting.
