Purminerals has been hitting it out of the park with their gorgeous eye shadows and the Soul Mattes Palette is one I've been using daily for contouring and defining my everyday looks. Not only are the textures luxurious, the quality is fantastic with no creasing or fading even in the summer heat!
This crush worthy palette has 8 ultra chic shades that are ideal for everyday looks; in fact I wear these warm hues most frequently as they compliment my outfits and most shades of lipstick. What I love most is that the finishes are expertly crafted for use. When palettes have too much shimmer and not enough matte for balance you can end up with more glam than you bargained for. This palette also includes shimmer-free brown and black for deepening the crease and a pretty cream color that makes a wonderful brow highlight.
The shimmer shades include hues that are consistently trendy including rose gold, and three other gold-bronze hues that compliment all complexions. I do think a bit more color variation would have been a nice touch but I am definitely pleased with the velvety texture and ease of application. The palette is also great for travel and since it is suitable for both day and night I don't have to pack any other shadows.
The rich smoothness and high impact pigmentation makes it easy to enhance the colors and the coverage is excellent! You can go from a sheer wash of luminous shimmer to golden goddess with the swipe of a brush and although primer is not required to intensify the beautiful, satiny-metallic finish it does increase the vibrancy. The compact also comes with a rather large eye shadow brush which is a tad bulky for the eyes but still does a decent job at patting on color and blending. It retails for $35.00.
I haven’t had much luck when it comes to marker-like lip products because the finish is usually very drying and sets into the texture of lips. Although the Pout Pen Lip Stain and Hydrating Balm Duo does have a pointed marker tip the effect isn't as flat and the other side has a translucent balm for a boost of moisture.
I like the fruity apricot, peach scent and Fuzzy Navel is a pretty coral which is totally trendy for the season. The felt applicator is easy to use and the shape helps contour and outline the lips. When worn without the balm the stain has good staying power and a very subtle flush loaded with nutritive vitamin C. When you slather the balm on top the texture of the stain transforms into more of a cream and becomes susceptible to transferring and smudging.
The stain applies very lightweight and the sheer, color is tinted beautifully for a pouty, juicy finish that is natural and comfortable. It retails for $21.00 and is available in an array of delectable hues.
