I had seen this palette some time ago and when I couldn’t get it out of my mind I ordered it from Nail Polish Canada for $49.00 CAD. The well made cardboard packaging is fun and colourful with a retro feel. The eyeshadows and cheek products are covered with a mirrored magnetic flap and there is a separate magnetic flap for the cream lip/cheek products.
The nine eyeshadows are very soft and easily blended with a mixture of matte, satin and a couple with glitter. I was able to achieve soft everyday looks and dramatic evening looks with the colours. I had no fallout with any of the shadows, even the glitter stayed in place.
The face products are fantastic! Included in this palette is a highlighter, a bronzer, a coral and a pink blush. The bronzer and the two blushes are matte, but with a touch of the highlighter, you can give them some shimmer and a slightly different finish. I don’t use bronzer as it’s usually too dark for me, but this bronzer works well as an eyeshadow. The blushes are very pigmented, so a light hand is needed when applying. The colour lasts all day without fading.
There are two cream lip/cheek products covered separately to keep the powders out. I don’t like using cream cheeks products, so I have only used them as lip products. The pink one applies and blends beautifully but the peach one tends to sit on top of the lips and really clings to and accentuates dry patches.
This is a wonderful everyday palette as well as a handy travel palette. The package is slim with a selection of really good usable long wearing products. I’m really happy I bought it. This was also my first time ordering from Nail Polish Canada, I spent enough to get free shipping, I received it in just a couple of days and it came in very protective packaging. A great experience for me!
