Happy Friday Bookish Babes!
Today I wanted to give you guys some insight to my favorite eye shadow palette! Now, I know this palette is not new by any means, but it is my very first high end eyeshadow palette and I love it. I did a lot of research before buying this and it definitely payed off!
These shadows are just an absolute dream! They blend beautifully, the colors are so flattering and versatile. My only complaint about them, and it’s not even a big one, is that they do kick up quite a bit when dipping your brush in. However, this is because they are very pigmented so I don’t really mind it.
The top row of this palette is all matte and the bottom row is all shimmer. I personally think this is just the best of both worlds in a palette, I really like having both finishes in one handy place.
White: This makes a great brow bone highlight on fair skin!
Cream: I’ve hit pan on this shadow and I’m SO sad! I use this as an all over lid shade, to set my eyeshadow primer, and as a crease color.
Taupe: LOVE this one as a crease color!
Lt. Pink: I use this as an all over lid shade and crease color.
Mauve: This is probably my favorite shade in the whole palette! I’ve been loving it as a lid shade for cool toned wintery looks. It’s also a FANTASTIC crease shade!
Sable: Love this in my outer corner for warmer looks and sometimes for cool looks. it’s also great for the lower lash line.
Espresso: LOVE this one! It’s great for the outer corner and lash line. A great dark shade that isn’t black.
Black: Every good palette needs a matte black, it’s just a necessity. This shadow is great for outer corner and as shadow liner.
Nude: This shade is just the perfect shimmery cream/nude color! It’s the absolute best for the inner corner.
Champagne: ….The only shadow in the whole palette that I just don’t like. This is more glittery than shimmery and it’s a bit too chunky for me.
Gold: Alright, I am not a big gold shadow/jewelry/anything girl but this shadow is still pretty! I get more use out of it during the summer, but it’s definitely one of my least used in this palette.
Lt. Bronze: As much as I’m not a big gold fan I do really enjoy this shadow! It’s great for the inner corner and a shimmery lid!
Pewter: I have been using the heck out of this shadow lately! I used to only use it in the outer corner for more shimmery looks, but I’ve been using it as a lid shade lately and LOVE it! Put this on your lid and then a little bit of Mauve in the crease and it’s just perfect!
Garnet: Guys, how do I use this? It’s totally not a color I usually use and I haven’t played with it too much. It’s a great quality shadow though! Just a little out of the box color for me.
Deep Purple: Another one of my favorites! This is great for more dramatic looks or if you want a shadow liner/outer corner that’s dark and shimmery but not quite black.
Slate: I really like this color! Although I think I would get more use out of it as a matte color.
