Finding the right eyeshadow palette that is also affordable is a challenge. My mantra in life is this. You can spend your paycheck on luxury base makeup, blush, and skincare, but when it comes to little things you can definitely scrimp. We should be a smart spender. We know that drugstore makeup is just as good (or at times, better) than the luxury products. The biggest challenge is finding out which palettes are worth buying.
So today, I’m going to share you a small discovery. Fashion 21 Eyeshadow Palettes. To be honest I didn’t expect much but boy oh boy did it exceed my expectations. Watch my demo on their eye makeup, photos, swatches and READ MY FULL REVIEW below:
SWATCH & PLAY: Fashion 21 Cosmetics
I didn’t use any mascara or eyeliner to showcase the eyeshadow. Of course we can’t forget the brows. So I used Fashion 21’a cake eyeshadow powder, and topped it off with their gel so it sets budge-proof.
Eyeshadow Kit (description from website)
This 5-in-1 eyeshadow kit is an on-pointmust-have with its highly pigmented palette. Each kit packs in 2 matte and 3 shimmery shades so you can make any look turn va-va-voom in one easy application. Be confident that no look will be boring as this kit plays on colors and textures to glam up your lids.
Beauty on a Budget: Fashion 21 Eyeshadow Palette Review
Packaging – Each palette contains 5 shades separated in each stripe. The size of the stripe is good enough for your eyeshadow brush or your finger to get the product. It doesn’t have a built-in mirror and applicator.
Pigmentation – Based on the swatches you can see above. Each color has a decent amount of color pay-off. One or two swipes is enough.
Staying Power – Used without a primer, the shadows last for 4 hours before it starts to crease.
Shade/Finish – Shades 1, 2, and 4 have a satin finish. Shade 3 has both color and glitter. Shade 5 is a deep satin brown with less shimmer than the former shades. Making it the perfect eye shadow to use as contour or lining.
Texture – It has a silky smooth texture that delivers color in one swipe.
Final Thoughts – WOW. All colors can be mixed and match making it a wonderful palette for everyday use. For work, school, dates and even a night out. Best part is, it’s affordable! It also comes in other sets of colors, it’s so cheap you can buy everything without making your wallet cry! Such a steal.
