Mary Kay Midnight Jewels Collection Fall 2014 | Eye Colour Palettes

Mary Kay Midnight Jewels Eye Colour Palettes (1)

Happy Monday, blog fans! I started today expecting to get a full day of blog business done, but before you I knew I had the vacuum out and was rearranging furniture in my living room... Productive, yes, but not exactly what I had planned on doing. Anyway, rounding out Mary Kay Midnight Jewels Collection are the Eye Colour Palettes Sapphire Noir and Emerald Noir. Read on for a look!

Like most MK powder products, the Eye Colour Palettes come in pan form sans compact. They do fit perfectly into the Mary Kay Compact Mini ($17 USD / $20 CAD) as shown above, or into your own compact or palette. I love that they're able to fit five shades into one small pan, yet the individual portions aren't too small to get a brush into. As mentioned, these contain five shades and are perfectly co-ordinated to create either a purple-gray (Sapphire Noir) or nude-green (Emerald Noir) eye look.

While the shadows do have varying textures, almost every shade is incredibly pigmented and a dream to apply. I did find that these do kick up a bit of powder and have a bit of fall out, but to be honest, the fact that these are so pigmented I can look past a bit of fall out.

Sapphire Noir contains a selection of grey, purple-blues and a pink shade. The pink and blue shade are much more shimmery than the others, and as such had a drier texture that didn't fare as amazingly in the pigmentation department. The other shades however are incredibly pigmented and smooth- get a load of that deep gray, it's amazing!

Emerald Noir contains neutral brown shades with a deep green and a teal green for a pop of colour. None of the shades in this palette had any pigmentation issues, and are all amazingly pigmented and creamy. The teal shade didn't look like a shade I'd normally use, but when used in combination with the other shades, it just works and doesn't read as being too flashy.

Overall, I really love these! I am especially smitten with Emerald Noir because the deep green shade is just too perfect, but Sapphire Noir is not without it's charms- hello, did you see that deep indigo? What do you think of the shadows? Yay or Nay?
