Currently listening to Peruzzi – Majesty
*clears cobweb* The last time I was here was in January and I honestly thought that I was back on the grind but look who’s back here in July (6 months after…lol). However, we’re not going to talk about this today because I finally have a new product to review.
The packaging is very sturdy and beautiful at the same time, aesthetically pleasing and emphasises the theme of the palette. It also comes with a very good quality mirror which is a plus, this just helps to reduce the clumsiness when using the palette. I know this might sound irrelevant but I liked how the names of the shade related with the green theme of the palette for example Avocado, Forest Green, Secret Garden, these are all green things. I also observed that there wasn’t any neon shade in the palette and that was quite disappointing, for a monotone palette I expected to see at least one neon shade in there.
It is a 9-pan eyeshadow palette: 5 Shimmer and 4 Matte shades. The Shimmer shades are kinda foiled and are tightly packed, some almost feel like pressed glitters. On application, the matte shades have little to no fallout and are quite pigmented. They also apply the same way they appear when swatched and are easy to blend. On the other hand, the shimmer shades are also quiet easy to blend, however, they lack pigment and are quite impossible to apply using a brush (whether wet or dry) but they apply smoothly and more pigmented when the fingers are used instead.
I loved the design and quality of the packaging, it shows there was a thought process surrounding the production. From the price point, the quality of the shadows were also very commendable, pigmented and easy to blend. My cons would have to be the fact that the shimmers do not work well with a brush and the absence of a neon shade. This product retails for #3,800, $9.99 and it can be gotten from a variety of sources: The official Focallure site, Aliexpress, Jumia, @focallurenigeria_, @focallure.ng.
