Hi Y’all! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve been on here with a written review – I’m sorry! I have been filming videos weekly and editing, but I want to get back to writing reviews. I’ve been dabbling in a lot of new makeup recently, especially eyeshadow! So, I figured it would be perfect to write a review for a new every day staple…
I wanted to chit chat about this little drugstore gem I stumbled upon. First and foremost, this palette smells like peach. I’m not really into the scented makeup fad that has been around for a minute, but this is a super subtle scent that I found refreshing. I have to say I’m here for this palette!
I think this is a great palette for the price. If you are new to eye shadows or just love a good neutral makeup look, I think this palette is perfect! You get a mix of mattes, shimmers, and metallic shades. If you like the bronze and peachy vibe for eye looks, then this is your palette!
Below you will see swatches from left to right starting with the top row on the far left.
The first two shades swatched (1 & 2 – these shadows don’t have shade names) were a bit patchy, but when I blended these shades on ht eyes they blended out pretty easily. I’m not super disappointed in these shades because these are highlighting shades for me. I also love that shades 4 & 8 are matte because these two mixed together make the perfect peachy mid-tone brown crease shade.
I was a bit nervous about shade 7, which is that pink shade with what appears to be glitter in the pan. However, when you use this shade on the lid, it is more of a peachy-toned pink which is universally flattering. I think it is a beautiful all over the lid color.
I also really enjoyed the glitter and metallic finish of 3, 5, 9, and 12. You can use these dry for great color pay off, but they also get a more amped up finish when you dampen your brush with a bit of MAC Fix+ or water.
Over all, I think for $11.99 (at target) this palette is a great neutral palette. The pan size is on the smaller size, but I think the pigmentation and blendablity makes the palette well worth the price tag.
