W7 In The Night Palette

12 pans of beautiful festive shades
Another beautiful tin by W7
Another W7 palette, yes I know! I'm a bit obsessed!! This palette has been tugging at my heartstrings lately, with its decadent purples and berry toned shades. Nothing makes me happier than a deep purple smoky eye, it looks sultry without being as harsh as a full-on black smoky eye would be by comparison, and it stands out in a sea of browns and golds.

This palette is as buttery soft as its counterpart, the Lightly Toasted, which W7 sent me a couple of weeks ago. Having finally tracked this one down, I was hell bent on trialling it ASAP. As with the Lightly Toasted, it comes in a beautiful tin that clicks closes satisfyingly, with a double ended applicator.

Lets look at the shadows!!
Such an awfully lit photo... I apologize...

Dusty - shimmery light pink
Wonderland - dusty rose toned shimmer with micro glitter
Summer - very light silvery grey shimmer
Atlanta - mauve toned silver shimmer
Abracedabra - cool grey-purple with silver shimmer
Top Hat - royal purple satin
Razzmataz - deep purple micro glitter
Lady Luck - vibrant pinky purple with silver shimmer
Laura E - deep blackberry purple satin
Party Pooper - cool taupe satin
Gate Crash - deep steel grey satin
Bologna - matte black

Party Look: 

First I took Atlanta all over the lid and up to the brow bone as a surface to blend on, and smudged Lady Luck on the outer two thirds of the lid, blending the edges. Then I very lightly used Razzmataz to define the crease and the outer V. Finally I smoked out the look a bit using Laura E. I used Bologna as a smudgy liner and finished the look with a couple of coats of Absolute Lashes mascara.

In order to balance the dramatic eyes, I used MAC Creme Cup on the lips, which isn't pictured here because I'm forgetful as sin!

I know for sure I'll be rocking this palette at my Zumba Christmas party on the 5th!!

What do you make of this luscious, festive, and dramatic palette from W7?? Tempted?? Let me know!!
