Also from Quo's Spring collection I started telling you about yesterday are the Prismatic eye palettes in Intergalactic (colours shown in the pic), Infinity and Colourful Life.
All 3 Prismatic eye palettes include a good amount of mattes, which are smooth, stay on well and do not look muddy when blended. However, you will need to a good primer for them and use dabbing instead of swiping motion to put them on, as they are slightly powdery.
Like the blushes and bronzers in the Prismatic face palettes, the eyeshadows in these palettes are not pigmented at first swipe but build amazingly well, also blend very easily, almost effortlessly.
Swatches below were done with a damp eyeshadow brush, 2 swipes for metallic looking shades and 3 swipes with extra dabs for mattes to show you the colours.
The black is a let down, pigmentation wise, unfortunately, but you can totally pull off a smoky eye with the dark navy in lower left corner. It has glitter particles that do not transfer much to the lids, and the colour is more intense on the eyes than shown here.
As you might notice, the third and fourth shade of first row almost do not show up on me at all and the plum in the lower right corner is probably the only one that works for the crease/ outer V.
I am smitten with the lilac on the far right, very fairy-like. The white and yellow have the most beautiful sheen. Not to say that others are not pretty, pastel-y style of course. The grey-toned plum is also the only darker shade, might might make it more of an accompany palette than a stand-alone one.
