The Berry Chic palette was released for Holiday 2011 along with a Natural Palette . I normally wear colors in the neutral family with the addition of bruised plums and coppery reds .So you see, this palette was made for me ( I wish ! ) .
lets start with the cream blush shall we ? It is a muted mauve plum in the pan and on the skin gives a very soft berry flush . The texture is very creamy but not oily to the touch . I found it to be very pigmented and I used my fingers to tap the color on my cheeks and softly blended it out .
Next to the blush is a cream illuminator and in the pan it looks like a icy pink but on the skin it looks more ivory . I wasn't too pleased with this because it left glitter particles on my cheek instead of a luminescent glow .
Now we have the the four eye shadows . On the top we have a creamy matte beige along with a plum with gold iridescence to it ( very reminiscent of Mac Trax or Nars Strada in concept ) . On the bottom we have a medium matte pink with a satiny plum brown . The shadows are incredibly pigmented and blend together with little effort . All together they make a very sophisticated plum eye look .
The two lip colors are absolutely glorious ! On the top we have berry pink lipstick and on the bottom a plum red . They are both very pigmented and wore well throughout the day . My lips did not feel dry or dehydrated .
Ultimately if you are a woman on the go and love berry shades then the Berry Chic palette is for you . I wore this to work 3 days in a row and everyone complimented on my complexion and makeup . Edward Bess is definitely a line for people who want to enhance their over all look instead having their makeup take center stage .
