Prismette Eyeshadow Quads ($68), I was uninspired. Not knowing whether the photos were bad or the palette were boring, I timidly ordered two. I'm pleased to report that the Sephora photos were "off."
These new eye shadow quads are described as rich prisms of multidimensional color. "With four
perfectly paired shades, this collection of textures ranging from soft
matte to high pearl deliver the ultimate depth and dimension" Knowing that Edward Bess has created gorgeous eye colors in the past, colors that provide an elegant, ladylike, look, I had faith.
In this feature, we'll look at Sun and Stars (#01). With luck and continued sunshine, I'll feature Cosmic Bliss this afternoon.
Will Sun and Stars set the world on fire for its originality, fabulousness, or glam factor? In my opinion, no. It's a workhorse quad, but hardly one that makes me draw in my breath and think of the wonders of makeup. Is it nice? Yes. Am I glad I ordered it? A qualified yes - only because it duplicates many shades I already have. Is it my favorite of the two I ordered? No.
You can find the new Edward Bess Prismette Eyeshadow Quads at Sephora and at Edward Bess counters at Bergdorf Goodman and select (very select) Neiman Marcus stores.
