Do you know what heartbreak feels like when you open a brand new $42 palette and see one of the pans already obliterated? I unfortunately do. Luckily for me my sales person was more than understanding and was only too happy to exchange it for a new (unbroken) one. I didn't even tell him what happened. He just looked at woman who looked like she was about to erupt into bitter bitter tears, and noticed that she was holding this palette. He asked, "Is it damaged?" Apparently this has been a reoccurring experience with this particular product because of the saturation of pigment.
True to his claims, the pigment is dense and vibrant. But the powder itself is surprisingly light, it just glides on. (Another possible explanation for the mystery of the exploded pan?) The application is ridiculously soft and leaves no heavy or bulky texture whatsoever. These colors allow a lot of room for creativity and sensibility. I'm proud to have this palette in my collection. It's definitely worth the $42 IF YOU ARE EXTREMELY CAREFUL WHILE HOLDING IT!
I watched reviews of this palette and there were a lot of mixed reviews, so I was worried it wouldn't perform...However, this palette really did come through for me! It is as beautiful in person as it is in pictures.
I love the colour purple and pink is my favourite colour of eyeshadow to use, so naturally Celestial, Wild Child, Soul and Love stood out to me. That being said, do I think this palette could include more purples? Yes. Am I mad at the other colours like the browns and the warm tone shades? No. The basic browns and warm tone shades actually make the shimmers, pinks and purples more wearable for day looks. Where I'm from, we don't use a lot of colours in our makeup. It's usually barely there, light washes of "basic" colours. So the basic shades are good to tone down the bright pinks, purples and shimmers. I know you can get these basic colours in other palettes, but if you're like me and you don't like fussing about multiple palettes when you're doing your makeup, then this is a good palette. I also like that the shades Soul and Love are lighter, pastel-y shades. You can create soft, muted looks, and if you want to play it up, there's a whole row of shimmers to add to your look. There are also darker shades such as Volatile, Rose Gold Passion and Drama which you can use to darken looks or create like a grunge-y makeup moment.
Let's talk about the shimmers first. I own a few palettes, but I don't have anything like Wild Child, Celestial and Drama. Those colours were definitely ones that got me to buy this palette. The colours Wild Child and Celestial definitely added a very whimsical touch to your look. The shimmers are a bit glittery, but nothing too major that you'd need glitter glue. I apply the shimmers with my fingers and just the tiniest bit of it is enough to make my lids sparkle! The shades Dreamer mixed with Dazzling creates the most beautiful inner corner highlight, not too bright against my medium dark skin tone, but enough to really open up my eyes! I wore the shimmers for 12 hours and it was still quite sparkly and shining at the end of the day! Of course, it wasn't as bright as it was when I first applied, but it definitely held up better than most shimmers I've tried!
Now, the overall pigmentation of the product. Both the mattes and shimmers are incredibly pigmented. Just the lightest dip of your brush and you pick up a lot of product. The mattes blend so easily and the colours did not look muddy.
However, the reason I'm giving this palette 4 stars is that, although this palette is highly pigmented, I think it can cause quite a bit of user error. I use a very light hand whenever I pick up any shadow, and like I've said before, the lightest dip can pick up quite a lot of product. You need to be careful with the pressure you're using to dip into the product. Sure you can tap off the excess, but if you're careless, you may end up with way too much product on your eyes and it may ruin your makeup. Or you may have to spend a lot of time blending and whatnot. Also, because the shadows are pigmented, the product tends to be on the softer side. So expect quite a bit of kickback, even with...the slightest tap of your brush.
This brings me to my next point...Do I think this palette is travel-friendly? Yes, absolutely...IF YOU PACK IT WELL. Thankfully for me, my palette arrived in one piece, not damaged at all, but because it is so soft, if you don't handle with care, things can go wrong. I think the palette is good for travel is because if you like the colour story, you only need to bring along this one palette. As I've said earlier, there's the browns and warm tone shades and also the fun shimmers, pink and purple. You can create soft, but fun day looks, and stunning, dramatic night looks. From simple and soft, to fun and whimsical, and to grunge-y and dark, there are shades in this palette that you can use to create full looks from. Plus, this palette is not bulky whatsoever. So yes, good to take with you on holiday.
Overall, I really do enjoy this palette. Such cute feminine colours with a touch of darkness. This will definitely be my go-to palette for a while! Love it! ❤😍💕
Had the same problem....she loved the colors, the feel and the all, but when she opened it a pan was everywhere....no problem getting it replaced though. Just need to be a bit careful toting it around
Stunning colors that compliment my green eyes! Shimmers apply great with finger, and/or wet brush. Pans are smaller then most brands, and shadows are very powdery.. don’t have to press brush to much to achieve high payoff. Just make sure to tap... tap.. tap.. brush off so you don’t get to much fallout. Shadow lasted thru a 12 hour day with out any issues!!!
If you like the formula of the Modern Renaissance then you'll loved this. I love how it's unique, nothing like this in my collection. I
Was a little bit nervous about getting this palette as it had mixed reviews...but I LOVE IT! amazing colours!!texture-wow especially shimmers! So soft. A couple of them a quite sheer but still look very beautiful. Yes there is kick back, but who actually cares if they perform on the lid. You only need to gently dab the pan and you get heaps!highly recommend, go buy it NOW 😀
Love this pallet. Seems a lot more "buttery" then other pallets when it comes to glitter shades. Also if you want in your face glitter then this is for you, dont believe pictures it's actually extremely glittery. Love that you send to Australia too and fast.
I ABSOLUTELY love this palette. The shadows are beautiful, pigmented, and they blend amazingly well.
Gorgeous palette with a great variety of shades. Creamy in texture and blend well on the eyes without much effort. Shimmer shadows can be applied dry or with a damp brush. Highly recommend.
Its stunning! The colors are beautiful together and it blends really well. You get a lot of pigment with little touch. I would recommend this to anyone who is hesitant on purchasing it
