Stroke of Midnight

Makeup Geek Stroke of Midnight Eyeshadow Palette x 9 ($50.00 for zero.58 oz.) is a restricted version, vacation launch, which continues to be out there. It contains 9 full-sized eyeshadows throughout a mixture of finishes and depths, although it’s a extra impartial palette total. I used to be pleasantly stunned to see that the standard was extra constant throughout the palette than has been the norm for the model within the final couple of years. I feel the shades labored collectively properly. It appears the model has wised up and eventually decreased the worth of their pre-made palettes to $35 (they was once $45), which is extra… palatable.
