What do we all expect from a good eyeshadow palette? Incredible pigmentation, silky texture, easy blending and long-lasting colors of course! Today we are going to talk about this bright and bold Color Burst Eyeshadow Palette*, which was kindly sent to me by the lovely Mickey from WordMakeup online beauty store. Does it have everything a good eyeshadow palette should have?
First of all, a few words about the packaging. This eyeshadow palette comes in the most classic eyeshadow packaging - plain black eyeshadow case with a sturdy closure. Oldie but goldie, what more can I say? This palette features 35 bright and bold eyeshadow colors: 31 shimmer and satin eyeshadows and only four matte. Most of the colors have an incredibly pigmented and creamy formula, they are easy to work with and last all day long without fading. For extra color payoff, you can use an eyeshadow primer. A good eyeshadow palette will make the colors look even brighter on the eyelids and will make them last even longer.
Yellow color was the only disappointing shade in this palette. I always wanted to have a blinding yellow eyeshadow in my collection, but it wasn't as bright as I expected. Even when applied on the top of a good eyeshadow primer, yellow still looks kind dull and sheer. So, the yellow eyeshadow color is the least pigmented shade in the palette but what about other shades?
Unlike yellow, golden and silver eyeshadows are super pigmented. Both of these colors have a super creamy texture and beautiful metallic finish. Turquoise and plum colors are also very pigmented but my favorite shade in the palette is a gorgeous magenta shade, isn't it pretty?
Overall, I'm in love with every single shade in this eyeshadow palette. It is a perfect bargain dupe for the popular 35A Color Burst Eyeshadow Palette. I like that all the colors are unique and different from one another. It is exactly what you expect when buying a new eyeshadow palette. Of course, most of the colors in this palette aren't everyday 'appropriate' but there are a few neutral brown colors that will help you to create a beautiful daily makeup look. The quality is great, especially for the price and there are so many colors to play with!
Lots of love,
