Had to try another US DS brand gem today and I'm so glad I did. The Black Radiance palette in Downtown Browns (um, bit of a misnomer as there is only one brown shade along with a green, some plum tones and a couple of highlight shades) has mixed reviews but for me, it's just as good as the Wet N Wild 8 pan palettes. I tried out the plum shades today and as you can see, they're rich and gorgeous. I'm looking forward to trying the other shades soon. If you want a smoky plum eye without having to spend a fortune, you need this palette.
