This palette came in my September Boxy Charm box along with 4 other full size products from Hikari, Pur, Butter London, and Project Beauty. This months box value is $110.95 USD for Charm’s $21 a month. Winning!
I know, you want to see these products. So catch me on our SnapChat for the full unboxing later on.
FIRST IMPRESSION | Oh no another neutral palette! I have so many, that when I saw this one I was underwhelmed. That was until I tried it and realized I was seriously wrong. This palette is gorgeous and has the best matte/shimmer combo. It’s compact and perfect for on the go.
RANGE | The range is so great that you could go from a fresh bare look with the soft golds and browns, to dramatic with the matte black and dark brown. Also, the gold in this palette could be use as a highlighter. So pretty!
PIGMENTATION | The colors are highly pigmented, soft, easy to blend, and long lasting. It made the application very easy and fast.
PACKAGING | It contains 9 eye shadows: 4 shimmers and 5 mattes. Each pan is 0.45 oz. Which brings it to $5.55 per shadow. For comparison we are using Makeup Geek x MannyMUA Palette, it’s prices at $45 USD. Each shadow is 0.064 oz, making it $5 each.
One thing I really like, is the packaging design with countries embossed on the outside of the palette.
INGREDIENTS | Contains Carmine as a color additive. Talc, Mica, Cetearyl Isononanoate, Dimethicone, Zinc Stearate, Boron Nitride, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Sorbic Acid, Poloxamer 338, Silica, Tin Oxide. May Contain [+/-]: Titanium Dioxide CI 7789, Mica CI 77019, Iron Oxides CI 77491/CI 77492/CI 77499, Bismuth Oxychloride CI 77163, Manganese Violet CI 77742, Ultramarines CI 77007 Carmine CI 75470, Ferric Ferrocyanide CI 77510.
Couldn’t find much information about whether or not this brand is cruelty -free and such on their website, nor on PETAs. But just by looking at the list of ingredients, I know this is not a vegan product and I wouldn’t call it cruelty-free either. Carmine is a beetle found in South America. The female is used to create red dye.
THINGS I DON’T LIKE | Two things. It’s suppose to be an “on the go” palette. So where’s my mirror? I don’t like the fact that it doesn’t have one. I’m sorry but you NEED a mirror to make it on the go.
The price, $49.95 a bit expensive for me. I could get a high end palette for less than that.
FINAL THOUGHTS | Over all this is a very nice palette. If you don’t mind spending some cash, go for it, you won’t regret it. Get your own at STUDIOMAKEUP.
Now for the fun part. This is the look I created using this palette. Please take a seat and don’t panic!
Double face? Or 3D face? Not sure what to call it but I had lot of fun creating this Halloween look.
Let me know what you think of this crazy double face, two face or 3d face make up look. I hope I didn’t creep you out… too much.
Keep calm and its almost Halloween!
