Today I have a review on the stunning Tropical Palette which includes five fun, shimmery shadows that were selected by a Makeup Artist. The palette is designed to incorporate bright, show-stopping, complimentary colors that look great individually or mixed and matched to create a variety of bold looks.
For those familiar with my artistry style you know that I love intense color and these shadows are formulated to be highly pigmented and long-lasting. The texture is smooth and easy to blend producing minimal fall-out and non-crease coverage. Although the colors are solid they first apply in the light to medium range and can be layered to increase saturation.
My favorite shade has to be the bright lime green! Paired with the vibrant blue the effect makes me reminisce of strolling down the beach in the Bahamas and sipping a tropical cocktail! When used with a good primer and applied heavily the colors can be enhanced for a dramatic effect.
The palette does come with a duo sided applicator equipped with a sponge and what appears to be some sort of blending brush that is quite coarse and oddly shaped. I don’t usually use a sponge applicator so this didn't bother me. The silver shade looks lovely when paired with a deeper crease color for a sultry smokey effect.
For $8.75 this is a great palette especially if you are just starting out with bright shadows and you want to experiment with creating different looks. It is also ideal for everyday wear or themed events and is small enough to pop in a bag for use on the go and travel. You can find this palette on BA STAR's website by clicking HERE
