Hi guys, I’m back to reviewing stuff and this time I’m gonna follow up with short tutorials on two eye looks I created with the palettes. Hope you all enjoy!
So I did buy two of these palettes however I kinda deconstructed one to put the pans into a larger palette with my GDE shadows. As you can see i attempted to do the same with this palette but it didn’t work out so this will be our pretty photogenic palette.
I bought these palettes off of amazon.com for $17.99 each and they were prime eligible. The one pictured is called “Seduction” and the other one that i destroyed is called “Morning Mist”. Seduction has purply-brown pink colours good for a smoky eye while Morning Mist has more natural colours plus a gorgeous gold shimmer. I shall insert pics below.
You can probably tell that my depotting adventure was not very successful from the pic of the pink eyeshadow that had been brutally massacred. Anyway on with the review xD!
The eyeshadows come in this sleek reflective compact with a really nice mirror. The only drawback is that it’s really easy to smudge and fingerprint. Overall sturdy and compact packaging that protects the eyeshadow while still being attractive.
The formula of these is pretty soft especially the matte orange and pink in Morning Mist. They were almost a little powdery, but quite pigmented and easy to blend. The Morning Mist palette was the more pigmented one which i found weird since they’re the same brand of eyeshadow. Seduction had a different texture, being harder and less pigmented that the Morning Mist shadows. There are two matte/semi matte colours in each palette; in MM, the pink and orange and in Seduction the two dark purples. The other two are shimmery, that is, the gold and goldish brown in MM and the cream and pink shimmers in Seduction. Versatile colours that are well matched so you can create a number of looks with one palette. HOWEVER the shimmery pink in Seduction was a bit disappointing because it was so hard and had little colour payoff. Finger swatches below will show you what I mean.
The lightest shade doesn’t look very pigmented because it’s close to my skin colour so it kinda blends in. It works well as an inner-corner highlight. I like that they included two purples, one more cool toned and another warm toned purple. These work nicely for a subtle smoky eye as a nice alternative to black eyeshadow.
As you can tell the pink shimmer from Seduction is really not pigmented. But just look at that gold though omg. It’s lit. These shadows also don’t have any fall out, except for the gold but that’s to be expected from a glitter type shadow. I was really impressed with the shimmers in these palettes because the shimmer is very subtle not like GDE which has large glitter particles that literally get everywhere, even if you press them. Overall V. impressed with these palettes, mainly because I like the colours and the lack of fallout. the pigmentation however could use some work.
