Maquillage Fall '09: 3D Face creator palettes

It's hard to think about "fall" make-up when it's so hot outside. Anyway, after getting one of the Maquillage 3D face palettes for fall, I caved and got the other one. The individual shades in these palettes seem to have less contrast from each other than the palettes from the spring, so for me they seem to be a bit more subtle, but still very pretty.

Color #55

Color #66

I had a hard time trying to get swatches to show up in pictures. The colors seem to just disappear on my hand and all you see is the shimmer. =( The flash makes the colors look more shimmery than they really are; they do have a bit of shimmer but definitely not over the top.

Although it shades don't show up well on my hand, on my face they do provide some highlighting/contouring but I think I'll have to wait till the fall and I'm a bit paler to really see the effects a bit better. (Currently, I'm around MAC NC 35-40). The usage is the same as the previous palettes and if you go on the Maquillage site, you can see other ways of using the palette. I swore I was able to find an English translation at some point and the different ways are based on individual face shapes. I will update if I can find the English text.
