It’s no secret that Pur Cosmetics has some seriously gorgeous pigments and since the selfie epidemic seems to be the way of the world, great makeup can help prefect your photos. The Selfie 2 Palette seems designed for my busy schedule because the expertly crafted shadows create effortless looks that can to go from day to night.
Along with 8 luxe eye shadows the collection also includes a universal highlighter, bronzer, baking powder (to set your look), mascara, lip pencil, gloss and large mirror - all conveniently packaged in a travel-friendly glittery case.
The shadows in the palette are flattering on all skin tones and great for everyday wear. There are 3 soft matte hues in cream, beige and pink plus 5 shimmers in gold, bronzy tones, green and iridescent garnet. Deepening the colors creates a vivid smoky effect and the pigmentation is full-coverage, buildable and blendable for incredible saturation and smooth, silky application.
Although the inclusion of a deep matte brown for crease sculpting would have made the palette more complete, the shadows are excellent quality and I have no issue with excessive fallout, or fading. They also layer incredibly well so I can glam-up my look for a night out and accentuate my eyes with the Fully Charged volumizing mascara.
The universal highlight is a soft champagne hue with peachy undertones that applies buttery smooth with no messy glitter. The illuminating shimmer is well contained and I can brush it on heavy for dramatic radiance or light for a natural glow. The velvety bronzer is medium brown and deep enough to contour. When used with the matte baking powder you can reshape, define, sculpt and transform the face.
The Velvet Matte Lip Pencil is beautiful and the creamy formula can be used to line or fill-in the lips. The chubbier shape makes it a bit difficult to sharpen but the color is very wearable.
The gloss compliments all of the pigments and hydrates with a wash of beautiful pink shine. The color payoff isn’t too sheer and can be enhance it to medium coverage for a lush, pouty effect.
