|Seriously wishing I would have swatched these over a primer. Rats! Sorry guys.|
Like I said, The Mod palette consists of three colors. I tried to swatch them and failed miserably, as you can see, so I'm making it up to you by showing them on my eye at the end of this post. The highlight color is a shimmery ivory, the crease color is a black with what appears to me as a fine silver glitter, the eyelid color is a shimmery grayish taupe. The highlight color doesn't have the greatest color payoff, but the eyelid color is gorgeous. The crease color is nowhere near as glittery as it looks in the pan, which was a relief. (I was scared I was about to look like a glitter monster.) The texture of these eyeshadows can accurately be described as "plush," as the name states. I found all the colors to be quite easy to work with. Black eyeshadows can be tricky, but this one went on incredibly smoothly. The wear time on these colors is great. I made it through an entire workday without fallout or smudging. All in all, it's a good quality product, but my advice would be to just get an Urban Decay Naked 2 or Basics palette for nearly the same or half the price, respectively.
I chose this particular palette for a few reasons. I am obsessed with all things MJ. I don't have a black and white palette, which is frankly embarrassing because it's so basic. The rest of the palettes weren't as neutral, and I was scared to spend $42 on colors that wouldn't get much use. And, it's been said that if you can blend black and white together, you can blend ANYTHING. That said, here's what I used to create an ultra simple smoky eye look with The Mod palette:
