IsaDora Spring 2009: IsaDora Blooming Spring Palette Review and Swatches

Technically speaking it's still Spring right? Just be quiet and pretend it's Spring for a little while so I can show you the Isadora Blooming Spring Palette. Shhh no one will know it's almost Summer. Close your eyes, think of a cool brisk breeze, the scent of tulips in the air...are in your special Spring place now?




Good!

Let's go to the review!

Ok, so no matter what one thing that IsaDora never fails out is giving me bang for my buck. Beautiful palette, $19 bucks? I can go for that.

The IsaDora Blooming Spring Palette contains five beautiful shades for that perfect Spring eye look, shhh you're in your Spring place now no thinking about bronzers! No but seriously you can easily get away with using the palette year round as it has some great shadows. Peach, Pink Purple, Green, and Brown make up the palette shades. These can be combined or used separately to create various looks. The colors are all quite pigmented and blend very well however they do have a tad bit of a chalky formula. In my experience with IsaDora palettes so far I noticed they sport a very similar formula and texture to that of most Japanese eye palettes, it's that creamy powder formula that's almost chalky in texture. This isn't a bad thing but if you aren't a lover of such a formula you might not like working with these. The shadows are very nice, pigmented, buttery smooth, and they blend quite well it's just that strange chalky texture that could sway some. Personally I like the way they apply and think they create some seriously lovely looks.












The only rant I have about the IsaDora Blooming Spring Palette is the fact that it was a simple black compact. Most of their special releases have a different compact design but this is simply the standard black casing. Meh a tad disappointing for a packaging junkie like myself but nothing to get to upset over.

All in all, for the price the quality is there and it's worth picking up if you're an IsaDora fan. I think it's also worth trying out if you're new to the line.




















Few small notes.....

Cosmetic Mall used to sell IsaDora but now it gives a strange buy two option. This is news to me until a few readers mentioned it. So basically they want you to purchase two of every product. What?! Not cool. So....you can either get a friend and order together or you can order through the IsaDora Amazon Store. As your last option you can check on Evil-bay although I suggest heading to the Amazon Store to score the palette and other items from IsaDora at retail price.

Here's a few looks I did with the palette:

Using Pink:



Using Peach:

Using Green and Brown:



Anyone an IsaDora fan?

Strangely, I like the Peach and Purple best, though the pink is nice too. It might be fun to do Peach on the inner 1/3 of the eyelid, with Purple on the outer 2/3 and into the crease, darken it a bit with the brown, and then use the peach again, lightly, to highlight.

I can't find anywhere around here that carries Isadora anymore, since Walgreens stopped. Poo.
