Before we even begin, OH MY GOD these eyeshadows are AMAZING!!! So Fenty Beauty has just released their holiday collection and for their first eyeshadow palette they have definitely done a GREAT job!
We actually just did a review on the “Eclipse 2-in-1 Glitter Release Eyeliner” which has been released in the Holiday Collection, so click -> HERE <- if you want to read more about it!
Continuing on, so at first when we saw the product we were a bit scared even a bit sceptical as this isn’t usually a palette we would go for but after swatching them and trying them on, god were we OBSESSED! So this is a limited-edition glitter eyeshadow palette which ranges from sheer glitter topcoats to darker smokey shimmer hues. This palette was an absolute glitter BOMB! Although something we wouldn’t normally go for, the pigment of this palette really got to us!
Glitter eyeshadow for us is something quite hard to do well with us having many experiences where the glitter is too overwhelming or too chunky or sometimes the mixture of glitter with the eyeshadow makes it hard to blend or just the glitter pigments are very uneven and streaky across the lids. We were so surprised this formula to be so even, smooth and just very soft and easy to apply on the lids! The formula is very soft and has just the right amount of glitter without being overdone and it creates a lovely 3D effect on your lids that it literally shimmers from every direction! What we also love about this formula is that it is very buildable and the darker shades can build up into a very strong smokey eye or leave a slightly softer feel to them. We found the bright blue colour in this palette to be slightly chalkier with a little fallout compared to the others but otherwise this is a really good palette!
Although we wouldn’t use it as an everyday palette, this would be a nice palette to have for those days or nights you really want to add a touch of something to really make your eyes pop! Personally, we would use certain colours in this palette by itself (such as the green which we are in LOVE with) or with other palettes to tone down the look slightly but this palette is definitely worth checking out!
