Addiction Ready to Wear Eye Palette in Departure

Addiction Ready to Wear Eye Palette in Departure

I have been hesitant about buying this palette because my impression of it was really dark.  When I opened it to see it for the first time I was like "huh this looks lighter in person...and f%#* it looks broken.  " The quality of the pressing is certainly bad on the one I have because everyone else has smooth pans.  It was quite difficult to photograph because the shades on the right have reflective properties and the bumpy texture caused certain shots to be useless as they were over exposed from the white sheen.

Slightly different angle to see colour

The blue and plum is so lumpy :( this brand new too

I think this is the most true to colour pic and no adjustments were made.

With other plums that I have.
Three 09 Star Guitar, Addiction Departure, Burberry Mulberry, Three Duo 06 Winter Love

Indoors next to window.
The shadows are very smooth and pigmented.  I applied one swipe with a sponge tip applicator on lightly moisturised skin (Avène Trixéra+ Selectiose Emollient Cream).  Unfortunately my skin texture makes everything appear super sheer so please don't use this an indication of quality.  I can't build up the colour with powder products on my skin because no matter what it is, they just move around and slide off.

More pics and swatches over at:


  1. The packaging looks like Illamasqua eyeshadow quads! These colors could make a super great colorful look and likewise an interesting neutral eye! I have to check this out sometime.

  2. Thanks for the link love! All those other plums are gorgeous too.... Star Guitar is a personal fave!! ;) Happy New Year and look forward to more gorgeousness from you! xoxo
