Wet 'n Wild Milano Collections Eyeshadow Palette - Swatches + Review


I was watching a video earlier on a Wet 'n Wild palette I knew I had purchased earlier this year, but for some reason I could not find a post I thought I'd done on it.  Yea...I'd taken the swatch pictures and then never got the post done.  Oops.  I bought my palette back during the summer.  But the reason I'm bringing this up now is that I believe this palette is now available in a gift set from Wet 'n Wild available at Walgreens for $10.  Check out this post on Nouveau Cheap's blog for the Walgreens Fergie holiday collection.  This week (through 11/21) Wet 'n Wild is bogo 50% off and, at least at the Walgreens I normally go to, those stickers were also stuck to the WnW holiday display.

Photo Focus Studio Eyeshadow Palette in Milano Collections.
As usual, I did not prep my skin in any way (no primer/lotion/etc) to help the swatches look better.  It's been quite a while since I took these pictures but I don't believe I did any building up of the shades.  I did 2 sets of photos, the first of which are in my lightbox.
These last 2 pictures are in natural daylight:

This is the display I grabbed my palette from (a few weeks later) - I really wish I had gotten my hands on the one with greens but it was gone when I decided I wanted to purchase the palettes.

I have used the Milano Collections palette a few times for my eye makeup and really enjoyed the final look as well as how it was fairly easy to work with.  I do tend to use my fingers a lot, especially for packing on lid colors, but that's just me.  I guess you could say I get into my work.  Other than there being no mirror, I think this could actually be a nice little all-inclusive shadow palette for travel.  There's a few satin-matte shades, from light to black, as well as metallics.  I think it ranges from cool to warm so it works perfectly for me - I feel can wear either tone.

Is the Photo Focus Studio Eyeshadow Palette in Milano Collections something that appeals to you?  Have it already?  Would you purchase it in the current holiday kit at Walgreens ($10)?
