It is very rare that I’m mesmerized by a palette for more than 30 minutes. And last night, while scrolling through Instagram in a sleepless daze, I stumbled across a palette. The kind that I would’ve purchased straight away if I were in the US. I’m talking about Mecca Max Beauty’s “Desert Queen” palette.

Trendmood shared the picture of the palette on her IG. The marble hues and vivid textures of the palette caught my eye. And almost sent me into a trance.

The palette consists of three types of eye shadows –

  1. Matte
  2. Metallic
  3. Marbled

And perhaps the best thing about the palette is it’s versatility. According to the brand, you can use the shades on your eyes and/or your face.

So not only do you have stunning eye shadows, you also have blushes and highlights!

Oh, and also – MASSIVE mirror!

The Desert Queen palette is limited edition and retails for $38. Moreover, it is available only in Mecca Maxima stores and online.

A voracious addict of everything beauty, little did I know I would be treading down this path. Started off as a dentist, occasionally dribbling in the arts. Now full time Instagram browser and money spender. They say money doesn't buy happiness. I disagree. They probably didn't know where to shop.
