The Palette with Applicator

PROS :

  • The packaging is slim and simple with a transparent plastic lid that is useful to look at the shades inside.
  • True to its name, the palette Traditional is a super workable one. All the shades are neutral and you can easily carry them off in a work environment.
  • The texture differs from shade to shade. In general, most of the shades have powdery texture. Though it takes a little longer to blend in the shades, the powdery texture makes it last longer.
  • Every girl irrespective of the eye color can use this palette with ease.
  • There are 2 matte shades and 10 shimmery shades.¬†Thankfully, the shimmery shades are not chunky but are rather subtle.

Product Swatch (Left: The topmost shade to Right: the bottom-most shade)
  • The shades blend quite well. The brown shades were the easiest to blend. The lighter shades required a little more work.
  • All the 10 shimmery shades are decently pigmented. Only the lighter shades lack pigmentation. Nothing 2-3 swipes can’t fix. The color begins to show pretty well after that.
  • It will suit all skin tones.
  • The Traditional Eyeshadow palette has a decent staying power. It stayed for 3-4 hours without a primer. But lasted up to 6-7 hours on me with primer.
  • The shades are quite versatile with a white highlighter shade, beautiful browns and taupes, contour shades etc.
  • This product has a shelf life of 36 months! And, the best part? You can use it 36 months from the date of opening not the manufactured date. Cool, isn’t it?
  • Affordable (in U.S at least).
  • It is a cruelty from brand.

Ingredients List

CONS :

  • The packaging is flimsy. It will surely break if not we’ll organised during travel. Not travel friendly.
  • The shades don’t have names. So, you can refer them using only numbers or the row/column.
  • It takes a little extra time to blend in the shades perfectly.
  • It is difficult to layer up different shades as the powdery texture means the different shades blend with each other.
  • The 2 matte shades and the lighter shimmery shades are not that pigmented. So, they demand patience and 2-3 layers to show up properly.
  • Contains parabens.

Rating : 3.8/5.

SUGGESTIONS :

  • I definitely recommend a primer with this eyeshadow.
  • Always start doing your eye makeup first and then move on to the rest of the face.

MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE

I love this eyeshadow especially for the shades. This is a great neutral eyeshadow for beginners. You just can’t go wrong with this. You mix something with anything, you’ll end up with a beautiful neutral look. The versatility

So, would I recommend it? If you are in the U.S or have someone to pick it up for you, it is definitely worth buying. But I wouldn’t recommend this if you have to spend more than 600 bucks.
