This post will be primarily focused on the eye shadow palette.
This palette features 10 eye shadows at 0.03 ounces each. There are four matte shades (Kinky, Freestyle, Backdoor, and Blackout), and the rest are shimmery. There are some shades with micro shimmers, but no large glitter chunks. The insert of the palette is cardboard, and it comes in a nice zippered case. There is a well in the middle for the eyeliner.
These shadows make for a great smoky eye palette! Kinky and Freestyle are perfect shades for highlighting, transitioning, and blending. Additionally, depending on how you use these shades, this palette will create more than just dark, smokey eyes. Smoky eyes don’t have to be only black…colorful smoky eyes are my favorite!
These colors are nicely pigmented and applied and blended nicely on my eyes. Evidence (the blue shade) is more of an iridescent blue with a black base as oppose to a strong, opaque blue shadow. I get some powdery kick-up when I put my brush in these shadows, and I did experience fallout under my eyes (especially since they are dark shades).
Here is the look I created using this palette. I used Freestyle as a transition shade, Backdoor in the deepest part of the crease, Barlust on the inner and outer eyelid, Evidence in the middle of the eyelid, and Kinky at a brow highlight. I also mixed Backdoor and Evidence on my lower lash line.
This palette also comes with a look book featuring tons of detailed information about different eye looks you can create as well other educational information. You can tell a lot of effort was put into this 26 page booklet. Here are some example pages.
I’m so happy I picked up this deal! Having a palette focused on smoky eyes is such a fun idea, and these dark colors are beautiful. I’m excited to use this palette more, and I can certainly share more looks with it too! I hope this post was helpful for you, and thank you for reading!
