The Earthy Vixen Eye Shadow Palette ($10.00) contains warm browns, shimmery gold, vibrant green, deep red, scintillating pink and rich berry hues that transition from day to night. The pigmentation is buildable so you can layer and intensify to create a wide variety of stylish looks. Some of the mattes are a tad dry but they blend well and for the price you get a great selection of wearable shades.
With Christmas fast approaching you will definitely need some glitter in your life and I couldn’t wait to swatch the Glitteratzi Palette ($6.00). These pigments are perfect for the holiday season and you can just dip your finger in and pat the particles onto your eyelids (no brush required). Achieving consistent coverage is a bit challenging but with a little patience the effect is quite glamorous! Be warned, the formula will transfer if you rub your eyes so refrain from touching it and everything should stay put for a few hours.
The Neutral Eye Shadow Palette ($8.00) is perfect for quick everyday looks. The contrast of deep mattes and silky shimmer is great for sculpting and the color payoff is decent.
I had high hopes for the 3-In-One Powder Highlight Trio ($6.00) but the texture is rough and the shimmer applies patchy with sparse coverage. Since the particles tend to get lost in my makeup brush I use my finger to maintain concentration.
The Rose Gold Palette comes in handy for travel and what girl wouldn't be happy to find one in her stocking!? The sparkling garnet, brilliant coral and soft champagne are luminous and trendy.
The Just Glow Bronzer & Highlight Palettes ($9.00) perform much better than the 3-In-One Compact and they include unique shades. Kissed by the Sun is more traditional, with shimmery bronze, coral and golden tones. The powders are velvety smooth and the creams are radiant with consistent coverage. Glowing by Night is unusual but intriguing. I’ve never used blue highlighter before but the frosty sheen could be fun on a snowy winter day.
