We may be a bit late with this review as this has been out for a little while now but here it is anyway! We have used this palette for a look already so if you are interested in our initial impressions, just click here.
Fall Out: a little
P R O S
- The shade range – it has some really nice festive colours which are perfect for this time of the year. But the browns, reds and copper shades are great for everyday too. So you are able to create fun looks as well as warm, ‘ordinary’ looks too.
- It is vegan and cruelty free.
- The shimmers are really good. We normally have to use setting spray in order to get shimmers to stick onto the lid but these really didn’t need it. We especially love the green shimmer as it reflects gold too which is just beautiful on the lid.
- For us (and if you too are a brunette) the dark brown shades could also be used for the brows. So this palette can be good for travelling too.
- Although the mattes aren’t as pigmented as the shimmers, they still blend well. They do need layering which isn’t the end of the world because we feel like there’s room for error and it’s quite forgiving.
C O N S
- The matte shades aren’t as good as the shimmer shades. The red especially needs to be layered in order to get the colour that’s on the palette.
- The duochrome shade at the top row (next to the matte green; called LUST) is a tad disappointing. Mainly because the Soph X palette already has that shade (PETROL) but not as pigmented as the Soph palette.
Here are some more swatches of the palette. One with no flash and just natural light. And another with flash.
We love I Heart Makeup eyeshadow palettes and we have the Peach and the Salted Caramel ones. We really like the formula of their eyeshadows and often reach out for them. This particular one will probably be the same too. And to be honest, this may be better than the Salted Caramel palette and we love that one. It just doesn’t have as much fall out and the shimmer shades are smoother on this palette than the others. The shimmer shades make this palette we think. We’ve also seen people compare this to ABH Subculture and how this could be a good dupe so there’s that too.
That’s all for now peeps. See ya next time!
