So here it is! Aviary finally decided to cooperate with me today, and I could get all you lovelies pictures for the review :)
So this is another goodie from Lilwen in Italy. Here's some blurbs from the company: "Sydney, Berlin, London, New York – each metropolis stands out for its own personal charm and style. Trends are born on the streets of these fabulous cities! This passion for life has been interpreted four times – and captured in the most breathtaking make-up palettes of the season: the Limited Edition “Big City Life” by CATRICE gives every city its own look. So when the big city calls, we can experience it and capture its style from October to November 2011.
Back of box. I really like how they gave you guides for creating looks! So let's see what else Catrice Says: "London is calling – and of course we are ready to answer! This city is a true fashion icon – its tradition, its trends, its looks, its pulse...London is such an irresistible hotspot that it captivates you instantly!

Here's a closer look of the inside of the palette, the first with flash, the second without
Overall, I liked this palette a lot.
*Really stylish, fun packaging
*Nice color selection
*Includes blush, shadows, eyeliner and a decent brush, great for jet setting
The only thing I didn't like was the chalkiness, but if you have primer you're fine, so it was no big deal to me. There's no mirror in this palette either, but as a lot of the palette mirrors are unkind (Erika's Smashbox palette, I'm looking at you!) I didn't mind :) Thanks Mariachiara!
