May The Inward and Outward Woman Be As One

Picking The Right Eyeshadow Palette

Tuesday, September 03, 2013
Eyeshadow palettes are a great way to be adventurous and try new bold colors and looks! 

Beware!  All eyeshadow palettes are NOT created equal =(  

When searching for an eyeshadow palette consider the following:  

Quantity of shades:  A palette can come with anywhere between 4 to 100 shades. A palette with a lot of shades doesn't necessarily mean a better deal. Make sure the colors are wearable and not just being used as "filler colors" 

Textures:  A good palette mixes up the textures. They may have a mix of frost to add brightness, especially in the inner rim of the eyes; shimmer which is great for blending harsh lines, matte textures are very smooth and not shiny. Matte finishes tend to last longer and are GREAT for mature skin. 

Pigment: The pigment on the shadows should be intense:   Test them on your skin. A good pigment will appear the same color on the skin as in the palette. 


I recently reviewed EM Cosmetics  "Life Palette"  and was impressed. Check out the results in the video below!
