First Impression - Storybook Cosmetics Wizardry and Witchcraft Palette
Okay so I have to admit it, I’m a sucker for fun packaging and the second I saw this palette from Storybook Cosmetics I knew I had to have it. And then I saw their rose gold wand makeup brushes. How could I possibly resist?
After putting it off and watching both items sell out and get restocked again I caved. When they arrived I was pretty much bursting with excitement. Inside of the box I found two pouches containing the spoils. Perfect for protecting them when traveling.
The first thing I noticed was the weight of the brushes. I was afraid that they would be metallic painted plastic but they’re not. They’re actually metal with varying texture tips and feel really high quality. These will definitely be a good addition to my makeup brush collection.
Then of course I had to try every color in the palette. The thing that impresses me the most about this collection is how versatile it is. Yes the packaging makes it huge but its honestly like having a few different palettes in one. There are a few intense metallic jewel tones perfect for a dramatic look, smokier tones as well as great neutrals for doing a nude look. So often you only find one the ability to do one of these looks with a palette but you can really do anything you want with this one. So exciting!
I was most excited to try Cauldron and Potions. I love a good red eyeshadow look but the Potions color looked like it would match my hair perfectly. They’re both gorgeous rich tones that can be blended to be more subtle but built up to be more intense. I was also pleasantly surprised by how much I liked the colors Spellbook and Jinx. Jinx is a cool gold tone and the perfect bright highlight color.
I had to try a look on myself of course so I opted to do a red and gold look I call the “smoky Gryffindor.” I used colors Cauldron, Spellbook, Jinx and Bewitched to make this subtle but colorful look. I’m so excited to try all of the possible combinations. Maybe a sultry Slytherin look next?
Overall I’m very impressed with my purchases from Storybook cosmetics and I look forward to sharing more looks in the future. I was expecting pretty products to add to my collection but the quality definitely goes above what I expected. Watch out wallet, I’ll definitely be going back for more!
