After seeing all the hype online about this brand I had to try it out for myself! After browsing the site I decided to purchase the “Magic Palette” for £30 as I thought it contained the widest selection of both matte and shimmer colours.
Let’s start with the good points; Upon arrival the packaging was beautiful and the palette was much bigger than I had anticipated, with the pan sizes being nearly double what I assumed from the pictures online. The artwork on the front of the packaging is absolutely breathtaking and makes the whole thing very elegant.
Now to the eyeshadow itself. After one swipe in the pan the pigment pay-off incredible, the colours are so vibrant and very opaque. The formula blends so easily on the eyes and stays put for hours, as long as it is primed with a good base.
This leads me on to the not so great.. after wearing the eyeshadow a couple of times I found that the brighter matte colours have a tendency to stain the eyelids, especially the more warm tones. This really takes away from the great first impression I had towards this palette as I was so impressed with the other aspects.
This however does not mean I won’t be using this palette, but I am now weary about using the product on my clients and tend to use other brands because of the staining issue. I will definitely continue to use the eyeshadow on myself because the result I get from these eyeshadows, for me, outweighs the issue of slight staining.
