Most of the times when I post a review I usually like to try out the products for about two weeks straight, that way I’m able to really experience the product and develop my thoughts. However, with this particular product, even after posting my initial review on my other blog I continued to use this palette and experiment with it. You can read my original post here.
Here are some of my updated thoughts:
- In order to really get the most out of the lighter colors that aren’t opaque, you can add a white base underneath and use a flat/stiff brush to apply the colors. This technique works better with the lighter gold color.
- The taupe colors are great for the crease and depending on what type of look you’re going for, you can pick which taupe to use. For example, if you’re going for a darker look and wanted a darker taupe color as a transition color, then you have options.
- This palette is full of basics and is great for beginners. If you have some other palettes like Urban Decay’s Naked palettes or even their Naked Basics palette, then you can pass on this. Those particular palettes are highly pigmented and you’ll get more payoff without having to put a white base underneath.
Overall, this palette is a decent palette to have, but I feel like I could have used the money on another palette. I do like the convenience of this product and I like the mix of shimmery and matte colors. This palette is ideal if you have a lighter skin-tone than me and if you’re beginning in makeup. Another cheaper alternative is the Wet n Wild Comfort Zone 8-Pan palette, however, it does contain a bunch of shimmery colors and no matte colors. Rating this palette on a scale of 1-10, I would give this a 5. It’s a decent product, but I don’t like the fact that I have to work with the colors in order to get them to show up.
Until my next post,
Stay Beautiful ❤
