Now there is the new double exposure palette...
The colours in this palette are a mix of plums, warm brown, black and a few lighter apricot toned highlighters.
What makes this palette a bit special is that the 12 shades can all be used wet and transform into a more metallic or deeper version of it's self.
Obviously most powder eye shadows can be used wet to alter the depth or finish of the tone but you may find if you put water directly into the powder then they get a seal over them or the texture goes a bit weird!
The shadows are formulated not to glaze over and will dry off exactly the same so you may still use them dry again.
The finish of these are a mix of shimmer and matte shades. When used wet the shimmer shades turn to a more metallic finish and the matte shades get deeper in tone.
Here's how they look dry....
The shades translate a little warmer onto the skin than they look in the palette. The second from last colour above looks lilac in the palette but is more of a rust on the skin when built up.
Here's how they look when wet....
I didn't think the lighter shades were affected too much apart from the silver shade in the centre. The bottom row of colours became more inky, sludgy and darker.
Once the colours dried off again in the palette they were back to their original formula and could be used dry again. The dark plum (2nd colour in on the bottom) did go quite crumbly in the palette after being used wet though.
There is a dual ended brush in the palette. One end is angled and good for blending. The other end is short and compact and good to build colour when used wet.
Initially I didn't think these blended that well but after layering the shade up it worked much better and gave a more seamless finish.
When used wet it takes a little more work, use a small amount of water and build it up.
