First I apologize for the lateness of this review. I purchased the limited edition by Terry V.I.P. Expert Paris Mon Amour Eyeshadow Palette $56 when it launched a few months ago and then promptly lost it. Beauty blogger first-world problems!

Boy am I glad I found it! This stunning eyeshadow palette has a mix of 10 matte and metallic shades of pinks, coppers, and brown inspired by Paris’ iconic skyline, home to by Terry. I would say the theme of the palette is rosy neutrals. The mix of browns with rosy shades is a nice balance so you don’t end up with “bunny eyes”.

The matte shades are creamy, smooth, and easy to blend. Premium pigments ensure long-lasting wear. Creamy metallic shades are infused with talc for easy blending, pearlescent pigments for high impact color and a unique binder system that gives the shades their incredibly creamy texture. There are plenty of neutrals as well as more dramatic hues.

When paired with an eyeshadow primer and used wet, the metallic shades make eyes sing! I got no fallout with any of the shades–they are easy to work with and the pigment stays true with no fading.

Let’s talk about the packaging! Like a beauty queen, the palette is beautiful inside and out. The pink metallic palette has a slim, sleek design adorned with Paris’s iconic skyline. Each eyeshadow also has an embossed design of Paris landmarks. Sadly, they go away with the first use, however, you still have them on the front of the palette! Also included is a dual-ended brush that is surprisingly nice. One side is great for blending while the other is intended to line the eyes.

For this look, I placed cool taupe in the crease, icy pink on the lid (used wet), and cranberry in the outer corner. I lined upper and lower lashes with the matte deep brown.

For a more dramatic look, I used the deep matte brown in the crease, gold on the lid, and the gorgeous bronze in the outer corner. Again, I lined the eyes with the deep brown.

This is such a well-balanced palette. The neutrals balance out the rosy shades and you can achieve a polished look as well as a more sultry look. The variety of shades is unique and had me reaching for it every day this week. The pigmentation is vibrant, the performance great. There are so many standout shades!

For a luxury brand, this by Terry palette is fairly reasonable at $56, though I got it for 20% off. Don’t ask me where I purchased this, I don’t remember, but it’s definitely worth the price!
