When it comes to trying out new brands, I like to start off with a bang. I have quite a few products from City Color Cosmetics to show you over the next few weeks but I love mini palettes so this was easily scheduled as the first! This is the City Color Cosmetics Elegantly Bold Eye Shadow & Blush Pastels Palette & it is just adorable.
Again, I love having blush options! You can use these 3 individually as swatched or swirl them to create a blend all your own.In this palette you get a very soft pink, medium/bright pink, & a rosy mauve that has a bit of sheen but not too much.
I really like the modern vibe of these shades although I wouldn’t have necessarily called it a “pastel” palette. There are only 6 shades but it is enough to create a variety of looks especially with the addition of a black shade. On the go, you can use this as a liner as well. I swatched these shades over the primer but using them with the sponge tip is also a nice way to add some pigmentation. Preferably with the sponge a bit damp!
Left to right: shimmery white, shimmery light pink, bright turquoise.
Left to right: matte black, shimmering warm light violet with a bit of a pink flash, slightly darkened teal.
The City Color Cosmetics Elegantly Bold Eye Shadow & Blush Palettes retail for only $4.99 with three shade variations: Pastel (which I showed), Neutrals, & Darks. I really like the look of the other 2 palettes & definitely want to try them out! The neutral version has really pretty peach blush shades while the dark has pretty jewel tones. You can pick this palette (& the primer used) up from City Color Cosmetics.
What do you think of this palette? Are you a palette lover like me or do you work with more singles?
