Review and Swatches: Australis Paparazzi Perfect High Definition Eye Shadow in 'Totally Busted'

A while ago, I filled out a survey for Australis regarding ideas for new cosmetics, and as 'compensation' I recieved a Paparazzi Perfect High Definition Eyeshadow in Totally Busted. The new, or should I say, more recent Australis collection, the Paparazzi Perfect range in total, is actually pretty impressive, with a great variety of high quality products.

The palette I was sent, Totally Busted, contains five smooth, pearly shades. There is a dark grey-toned taupe, a peachy champagne, a blue toned purple, a white, and a bright blue-toned pink. These shades are extremely shimmery and work together for a great dramatic eye. The colours all compliment each other, although the champagne does stick out as a bit of a different colour.

These eyeshadows last quite well and have a great staying power. There is a bit of fallout when first applied, but that is to be expected with shimmery eyeshadows. The swatches above were one swipe in the eyeshadow - they are extremely pigmented!

My favorite colours in this palette would have to be the taupe, which I love for darkening the crease, and the white, as an amazing highlight shade.

For $15.95, you get a great value palette of amazing quality, and variation of eye looks. There are three other palettes available, any of which would be a great addition to your collection.

Have you found any palettes that you love lately?
