29 Dec Review, Shades, Swatches: It Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Romantics Eyeshadow Palette Vol. 2 Spring 2016 Makeup Collection
The It! Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Vol.2 The Romantics!, $42, is a luxe matte transforming eyeshadow palette. This best-selling palette now has 14 all new must-have limited edition shades with luxe anti-aging silk-infused eye shadows that are all matte, perfect for women of all ages. The Transforming Pearl is a completely unique shade, designed to be added to each of the matte shades instantly creating a new pearlized color when you add over the matte color you love!
This palette is indeed very pretty! There have been many palettes introduced this year and the shades have been mostly deep, dark, or very vibrant. So it’s a nice breath of fresh air to have a palette like this with subdued shades allowing for a naturally pretty look. The palette comes in a lovely lavender soft velvet case. And upon opening, you immediately notice the range of soft hues. Regarding the formula, I was hesitant and thought that since the shades were light that it wouldn’t show up on my dark skin – I was so wrong. The high quality of the formula is rich enough for any skin tone, which I love! I’d have to admit that I couldn’t pick a favorite shade. Peaceful, Hope, and Sweetness are perfect to highlight lids or under the eyebrow. While Devotion, Fate, Mystery, and Trust are great for a little color or a smoky eye.
Utilizing cutting-edge technology, these anti-aging eyeshadows instantly diffuse the look of lines and wrinkles on your eyes and lids. Lush matte pigment glides over the lids and your eyes are treated to anti-aging ingredients, such as hydrolyzed collagen, acai, green tea and Vitamins A, C, & E and free of all the ingredients that make eyes appear older such as talc.
This is for anyone who wants an all-inclusive palette to achieve endless looks – all matte colors that can be used wet or dry, as shadows or liners and can instantly transform to a pearl sheen. This is for anyone who wants to apply skin-loving eye shadows without tugging on the delicate eye area.

For best wear, use the Heavenly Luxe No Tug Dual-Ended Shadow Brush, below, and apply your choice of luxe high-performance eye shadows wet or dry for a beautiful naturally pretty look! Wear colors alone or seamlessly blend together. These shades can be used as shadows or liners. To add a soft pearlized tone to any color, dip your brush into a matte shade and tap into the Transforming Pearl. When applying the color, use the large fluffy side of the brush for all-over lid and crease application and the shorter, denser side of the brush for lining your eyes above or below the lash line.
