Hello again! 🙂
I hope everyone had a great week. I tried my best to chill but I just had to do lots of cleaning and projects/crafts. 🙂 I did get to work on some blog stuff as well and I’m trying to schedule several posts in advance so I don’t have to worry much about them, lol. Let’s get on with this post.
I received this palette in my July Boxycharm, and I’m barely reviewing it. I know, I’m sorry! I seriously need to better organize my content because I constantly push things back lol.
Product Description from Crown Pro:
Made up of rich warm-toned shades, this creamy, high-pigmented palette gives you exactly what you need to create infinite flawless eye looks. The 5 shimmer shades perfectly complement the 5 matte shades, making this the palette for all your glam #goals.
As of October 2nd, 2018 when this post was published, this palette is $9.99 on their site.
The packaging is very simple both inside and out. It is made of cardboard as most palettes are. As always, I love that it has a magnetic closure. It feels pretty sturdy and it’s perfect for travel in my opinion as it’d fit just about anywhere. I also love that this palette has a mirror and it’s big enough to see my eyes perfectly.
Formula & Application
These shades are as pigmented as they claim, and they’re also very creamy. When you dip your brush into the pan you do get some kick back, but there’s hardly any fallout when applied to the eyes.
I found a few of the mattes, specifically the darker ones, apply a bit patchy. The shimmers however are out of this world in terms of pigment and they’re so creamy and smooth. I found it’s easier and better to apply the shimmer with my finger than with a brush, but I do use a brush if I want more precision.
The palette has 5 mattes and 5 shimmers, I think it’s a good balance. The color story is pretty simple: warm toned and kind of neutral — perfect for Autumn. You can definitely do some glam looks with this palette, however, the darker shades on the bottom row are not that dark so you’d be able to do a subtle smokey eye at best.
All the matte shades do compliment each and every shimmer, you could make so many different looks but I gravitated towards the same ones. I almost wish these shades had names but sadly they don’t.
Swatched left to right, top to bottom..

I didn’t create many looks and I also felt like I kept gravitating towards the same ones, but I did my best to make them look slightly different.
This look didn’t quite get me excited for this palette, but that’s because I wasn’t sure what to do with it until I kept playing with it lol.
I was really digging this look and I love how it almost has a reddish hue to it!
For being a warm-toned palette, I appreciated being able to create a look like this that looks pretty, kind of smokey, and purple-y.. This is probably my favorite look!
P.S. I didn’t wear lipstick because I was on my way out to the dentist..
I love that even though the shades are really pigmented, I can still create everyday looks.
I did mess up my winged liner oh well lol.
Which is your favorite look??
This is a great, high-quality palette and I think it’s perfect for fall season, I’m glad it came early. I will be playing around with it some more. If it’s really $9.99 compared to $29.99 as Boxycharm claimed on their site for some reason, it’s a bargain!
Do you prefer warm toned or cool toned palettes?
