philosophy divine fresh face spring inspiration palette
I love everything and this was such a great bargain! I do not use the mascara, I think Philosophy would have done better with an eye shadow applicator instead (that is what I use in place of the mascara). But I do wear the mascara when I "go out." I just don't need it every day. I also wish a cap would have been given for the lip brush, it does get on the mirror (but not alot). Just those 2 suggestions maybe for the next palette :) LOVE IT!!! The shadows do not crease and are very natural looking. Very Marilyn Monroe to me, which is the look I was going for. :) I would recommend to moms, sisters, friends, etc.
This is not my typical color palette, but thought I'd give it a try. To my surprise, the colors gave me a very fresh and pretty look. I've never use a cream highlighter and I loved the soft glow it gave my complexion. The brushes aren't great, but I don't expect great brushes to come in a compact. I'm also not a fan of the mascara...I'm a die hard BE mascara girl!
Not Quite For Me
I have used philosophy products and I find that their cosmetic line doesn't measure up to the rest of the line. Eye shadow colors were pretty BUT did not last and did not go on smoothly. BE is still my all time favorite eyeshadow. Lipstick colors were horrid on me. I have dark hair and eyes and light olive skin. Might work on fair complexions but again the lipstick seemed to sit on the skin and then smear. Highlighter did not show up on me at all. The compact is nice and brushes so so. Sorry but I will be sending back. I will stick with BE!!
I just received this as my spring perk for myself and am SO thrilled. It is much bigger than I thought it would be, plenty of product, and beautiful quality. Very happy with the products inside, colors and textures. Great value, great price.
the lipstick that looked mauve-y/pink just looked made my lips look too light and frosted.. yuck..maybe ok if you're 16. the eyeshadows had no pigment either. Sorry!!! I really am a hardcore philosophy gal but this wasn't for me!
SO SOFT & BEAUTIFUL!
This review may run a little long but I just have soo much to say about it. I'm a Philosophy girl through and through. Received this palette today and just tried it out. The colours are all so soft and beautiful for spring and summer. The lipsticks are creamy, the eyeshadows soft and blendable (the warm chestnut just glides on as liner) and the mascara is great; not hard and clumpy! The luminizer makes you look so young and glowy not glittery or sparkly at all (which I was a little leary of) and I'm 56 years old! So please all you gals out there who love to look young, glowy, and natural don't hesitate about this purchase. From A True Philosophy Girl*
A PALETTE OF PLENTY….
…IS THIS PHILOSOPHY DIVINE FRESH FACE collection... I immediately began using the colors and application the first day it arrived. I am delighted that I chose to obtain this palette for reasons not just of philosophy quality, but also of convenience to have all I need to apply and go in one container, plus the dual-ended shadow brush, and lip brush. There is not one of the: four divine satin eye shadows, divine love at first light, two divine luxurious lip colors, and full-sized divine mascara that I don’t like. All of the aforesaid complement my skin tone ‘divinely’ whether day or night, sun, hazy or rainy weather, matching any mood… I place this palette on a perch of its own and recommend it highly.
Lovely Springy Pallete
I LOVE this pallete! For my light complexion, it is the perfect complement. The eye shadows can be applied to be light and delicate, but you can also create a smokey eye. I really like the taupe colors with the pink. I am over 50 and have heard (and agree) that bown eye shadow is a NO for women over 50, as it ages you. The lip glosses are beautiful spring hues, and go on velvety smooth, and have a bit of staying power. You can put a picture in the slot on the front of the compact, and I have a picture of my Westie in front of a fountain in my garden, looking so serene. I leave it sitting up on my desk just like a framed picture, and coincidentally, my make-up is handy!! A very fine purchase, and when I run low, I shall certainly be purchasing another.
I was hoping to really like this kit, but the eyeshadows were washed out and dull.. I am sending it back..Please make some more colorful!
I adore this kit just as much as the previous one. Another winner. My uber-sensitive skin is finally happy with BOTH my skincare AND my makeup thanks to Philosophy.
These shadows are much more gray in color than brown,with little staying power...also,lipsticks taste funky.....
I finally found a soft taupe color that isn't too harsh for my fair skin. The Pretty in Pink lipstick is the perfect color of pink, and the other colors are soft and very wearable. I applied the eyeshadows over a primer and I feel that they lasted all day. I do wish the kit had a blush instead of the luminizer. It's also a bit on the heavy side so I won't be carrying it with me, but overall I like it very much. I definitely want the lip gloss on its own so I can keep it in my purse.
