LORAC Snake Charmer Palette

Snake Charmer  - with flash
The Snake Charmer is the next in the LORAC palette series.  This has the same physical attributes that the others have.  I purchased this one at the same time I purchased the others off of the lorac website, found here  Again, this was purchased for $10.99 USD!  Gotta love Lorac's sale section.

Palette without flash

This palette contains very warm / neutral colors and a gorgeous peach blush.  All of the shadows are soooo buttery!  They are some of the smoothest shadows I have ever used.  Even the glittery darker shadow is like butter.  The top left corner is a soft, true, shimmery champagne.  The top right corner is an extremely neutral taupe color.  Taupe lovers will appreciate this one.  Bottom left corner is a brown with slightly bronzey overtones.  Lastly, the bottom right hand corner is a very deep brown with a bit of black mixed in, and gold glitters.  The glitters do not all stay, but you do get some that attach and look very pretty.  The blush, peach with a slight pink sheen running throughout.  There are no glitters in the blush, and the finish of it is very gentle on the skin.

The only thing I do not like about this palette is that there are no matte shades and I am fond of using both textures to create eye looks.  I find it to work well with any of my brights.  I cannot stress enough how soft these shadows are...a bit of fallout occurs, but the softness adds to the easy blendibility that these shadows have.  For the bargain price I paid for this, it really was a steal.  If you are fan of neutrals, or just want to try LORAC shadows...try to get your paws on this!
