Hi everyone, oh how I missed to review an eye shadow palettes! It is just so much pleasure to describe each colour shade for you my dears. I feel like I`m talking about the book I`ve recently read :) Few days ago I received a package with this beautiful 18 Color Shimmer Eye Shadow Palette* and since then I was so excited to show it to you guys. So let`s get started!
Carmela Shimmer Eye Shadow Palette comes in my favourite classic eye shadow case - sleek, glossy and very simple. The only thing is missing in the packaging is a mirror, but if you are going to use this palette for a professional needs, you don`t really need the mirror inside. Obviously it is not a travel friendly size, but you can easily store it in your makeup drawer or on the book shelf. Let me tell something interesting about this product. All the eye shadows in this palette are larger, than a regular eye shadows, that`s why these shimmer colours will serve you literally forever!
This entire palette has all the eye shadow colours you need to create an everyday makeup look or a dramatic smokey eye makeup. All the shades, except for the black eye shadow, are shimmer. Their texture is not chalky , but very silky and creamy. As a primer for the swatches you see on the pictures, I used a regular BB Cream. Let me try to describe colours and their finish for you:
- White (shimmer finish)
- Light beige (shimmer finish)
- Neutral bronze (shimmer finish)
- Rusty bronze (shimmer finish)
- Bright gold (shimmer finish)
- Silver snow (shimmer finish)
- Ancient bronze (shimmer finish)
- Mild gold (shimmer finish)
- Walnut (shimmer finish)
- Dark bronze (shimmer finish)
- Pumpkin (shimmer finish)
- Navy gray (shimmer finish)
- Earth brown (shimmer finish)
- Orange (shimmer finish)
- Cold brown (shimmer finish)
- Olive brown (shimmer finish)
- Copper (shimmer finish)
- Black (matte finish)
To sum up my thought I wanted to say that I`m very satisfied with the quality of the eye shadows pretty much. All the eye shadows work very well together, they are pigmented and it is very easy to work with this palette. I wish a black eye shadow was a little bit more intense, but if you use a really nice primer, or apply it on the top of black pencil, the colour will stand out brighter. I`m almost totally sure, that it is possible to learn how to work with any makeup product you own, so don`t give up trying out new ways! Carmela Shimmer Eye Shadow Palette is very versatile and it`s making it suitable for everyone.
