Ebay 96 Professional Eyeshadow Palette

Before I left for North Carolina, I purchased a palette on Ebay. I originally looked for either 88 or 120 colors, but somehow I stumbled upon this cheaper ones and fell in love.

The 88 Colors are great, I'm sure many beauty bloggers agree on this one ^^ , but I wanted 'more' colors and the 120 colors doesn't really match with my personal preferences. I want browns and I never wear yellow. The 12o palette has only a few brown colors and tons of yellow hehehehe so after contemplating for couple of days, I went ahead and chose the 96 palette.

(I'm a dork, I have so many voices inside my head whenever I've gotta make decision. If you picture a small devil and angel flying around, whispering on my both my case, picture LEGION of devils & GANG of angles lol So yeah, it takes a while until I decide something)

Now if you search "96 Palette" on Ebay, many sellers will show up, and they offer different types of palettes too (in terms of color choices), and the one that I got is from this seller.

She (or he LOL, I have no clue) is very reliable, great communication (replied my mail within 5 minutes o.O it could be coincidence but hey, it's still a plus. and she ALWAYS reply my mail) and the item is just as described.

She shipped only once a week (every Tuesday, Hong Kong time) and my palette was shipped this tuesday, 5 days ago.

Today it finally arrived!

It comes bubble-wrapped, in a sleek black box

The entire colors

I can stare at these forever LOL

No mold, no broken pans, perfect. The palette has mirror with 2 sponge tip applicator attached.
The pans is dime-size, quite small but I don't really mind it so much.
Some colors are matte, some have shimmer, all SUPER PIGMENTED.



Natural Light

(I only swiped one time)

Price: $8.99 with $12.00 shipping, so overall I paid $21 for these beautiful palette.

I LOVE IT !!!!

one of the matte color that I try does feel quite chalky when I swipe it with the sponge applicator, but when I used my finger it feels fine.

Nic Nic:

Nanzy said...

it is my job as your fellow beauty blogger to help you solving your dilemma:



isn't shipping to Philippines cheaper? was just

Askmewhats said...

sometimes, it is more expensive!!! Eventhough HK is so close to PI, sometimes shipping rates sucks like crazy! Thanks but no thanks to you for being an ultimate enabler! :P

Nic Nic said...

Umm nopes i got some thing really different. the box looked battered and old, considering it was suppose to be new. A broken shadow probably didn't help.. lol. You definitely got a nicer palette :)

everyone is seem to be liking these ginormous palette. I'm glad i got mine as well!

i'm scared when it comes to buying ebay. iunno, i guess i just dont trust people. although I've seen this palette so many times already on ebay. but yay for your upcoming fotd.

Tracy said...

ooh, that looks like a great palette. thanks for sharing! i was thinking about getting one like that, or the 88-color one, but i don't even use a lot of bold colors, so i think i may just get the neutral palette.

ka inan, palette na benar2 menggiurkan -__-"

Vanessa <3 said...

sooo pretty!!!!!! soo many colors!!

Fabu-less Beauty said...

That looks awesome. Most palettes that I've come across aren't that great. They have either no pigmentation and no staying power. Are they blendable?

Tanya Annette said...

Okay so I have a question that is totally not realted to the pallete, lol:

What are you wearing on your nails (2nd picture)?!?! Dark blue? Purple? It's gorgeous! :D

Nanzy said...

Hey Tanya : )
