Storybook Cosmetics Wizardry and Witchcraft Eyeshadow Palette Swatches!

Friends, I’ve been waiting since the pre-order dropped in February for this baby to come to my house today. I had to make birthday foods so I crept in my kitchen all morning waiting for the mailman and then around noon it happened. 

Wait for it….

Hey girl… what is that?! The box for this was epic and very sturdy.
I opened the box which was secured with tape. There was a bunch of air packing inside and then nestled in the middle was this bundle of joy… I unwrapped it and…
This adorable bag was inside! It feels like felt and came with a really rad bookmark for purchasing the palette! I was so excited to open the bag, like I’m pretty sure I was sweating…
There it is! I’ve waited so long! 🙂 this baby was $56. That was with shipping included. I’m completely in love with the palette design.
Here’s the back of the palette. It has the names of all the shades, address and website of the company, ingredients and a fun blurb about the triplets.
Here is the side of the palette. Note how it looks like a book! I’m in love! The design is so intricate on every side. I’m so impressed with how lovely it is.
Here is the inside of the palette! There is a nice sized mirror. All the shades are labeled in a cursive gold font. There are twelve shades in this palette. At the bottom of the mirror there is a quote from Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe that says, “Magic is believing in yourself, if you can do that, you can make anything happen”.

Located above is a quick video of the palette in action! 🙂 

For the swatches I did them in the usual format of finger and brush. I did three shadows each time so there will be four different pictures showing you the shades in this palette!

This first row has broomstick, sorcerer and cloak in it. Broomstick is a matte honey brown shade. Sorcerer is my favourite in this row because I love red shades. I love this one because of the shimmer properties in it. Cloak is a very pigmented matte gray. I actually needed a gray in my collection so I’m even more excited right now.
In this second row we have potions, prophecy and Salem. Potions is a pretty emerald green shade that has a pretty pearl effect. Prophecy is a matte very light peachy white shade. Salem is a brownish purplish shifting shade that I totally dig. 
The third row has Merlin, bewitched and cauldron. Merlin is a dark navy blue shade that has some pearl quality to it. Bewitched is a beautiful gold shimmer shade. I want to use it on everything! Cauldron is a shimmery black shade. I was happy to see that it swatched pretty well with the brush as most black shades tend to turn gray or don’t pick up as much. 
This last row has spellbook, charms and Jinx in it. Spellbook is a darker matte brown shade that swatched pretty decent both ways. Charms is a very light pink matte shade that would be good as a base or light transition. Our last shade, Jynx, is a huge hitter silver sparkle shade. Wow. 

Overall, the design is top notch. I wouldn’t personally travel with this one just because it is so big and because of the cost. God forbid it gets stolen. I haven’t tried using the shadows on my eyelids yet, I’m actually going to do that right now but from the swatches I’m expecting great things! Xo
