Hello my lovelies,
I did an eye look using the MAC Caramel Sundae Eyeshadow Palette from the Archie's Girls Collection this morning.
I must say, I have been fighting with this palette for a couple of days to make it work, I tried several different ways of using it and of placing the shades until I found a way to make it work for me.
Really, the pigmentation of the eyeshadows isn't that great. If it had only been for them (and not for the packaging) I probably wouldn't have bought the palette. But I love the packaging, and it had to be mine!
Here are the palette and swatches (click all images to enlarge):
As you can see, poor pigmentation (I really swatched the shades heavily)!
I made it a point to only use the colors from this palette, nothing else, because I think you shouldn't have to use a ton of additional shades to make a palette work!
So the sheerness of the pink shade, Cheryl Chic, actually, worked to my advantage, because I used it from the brow bone up until the brow for a highlight!
Now a frosty color on the brow bone might not be for everyone, I realize that.
Here is a closer look to the shimmer bonanza on the brow bone:
In order to make the shades show up better, I used a colored bronze base underneath. To make Dreammaker - the yellow shade - a bit more vibrant, I packed the color onto a brush, sprayed with Fix+ and then packed it on. That made the color stand out a bit better.

Did you get the Caramel Sundae Palette? Did you get it to work? :-)
How did you place the shades, I'd be curious! Feel free to leave it in the comments!
