ColourPop By the Rose Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

By the Rose ColourPop By the Rose 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($14.00 for 0.3 oz.) is a new, warmer pink and coral eyeshadow palette that included four true mattes, one sparkly matte, and four shimmers. The eyeshadows were pigmented, blendable, and longer-wearing, though I think that the inclusion of both Sunday Soiree and Effervescent was redundant and made the palette less versatile than it could have been.

Meine Wut hatte einen Höhepunkt erreicht, der uns beide überrascht hatte. Als mir die Worte so aus dem Mund purzelten, mitten im Eifer unseres Gefechts, fühlte es sich an, als stürzten sie auf den Boden zwischen uns beiden und zertrümmerten dabei etwas Wertvolles, Irreparables direkt vor unseren Augen.  Es stellte sich raus, dass das sehr wohl ...

It would honestly be quite nice if England played a bit less and we could spread our attention wider. Best Test victory: India over A...
