Hello my friends!
Just wanted to show off a great find from Dollar General... does it look familiar to you?
It's the very same style as the Wet n Wild Color Icon 8-pan palettes, but this one is from Black Radiance and it's called Downtown Browns. It's manufactured by Markwins, the same company that makes Wet n Wild- hence the identical packaging. I am in love with my Wet n Wild shadows, so when I saw this at Dollar General, packaged with two black eyeliners for $5... I was all about it! If this is old news to those of you who have the Black Radiance line in your drugstores- sorry! It's not usually sold anyplace where I live, so I was super pumped about this. This Downtown Browns palette appeared to be the only type of palette being sold.
As far as overlap with Wet n Wild shades, I noticed a similarity with the sparkly purple crease shade on the right- the Wet n Wild Petal Pusher palette also contains that shade. But everything else is different. Definitely a great palette for a plum smokey eye, and I'll make sure to post a pic either here or on Instagram (emilynoel83) when I use it for a look.
LOVE the way all of the shades swatched! The very same quality as the Wet n Wild shadows. I think the bronzy/brown in the lower left hand corner is especially beautiful! The back of the palette says the shadows are matte, pearl, metallic, and sparkling finishes. I'll agree with pearl, metallic, and sparkling... but nothing here is matte, just so ya know. Anyway, next time you're making random dollar store purchases like glass cleaner and wheat thins, scope out the makeup!! :)

- Who else watched Idol last night? Did you think a lot of the performances were pretty disappointing? I was agreeing with Randy's critiques most of the time.
