Product Review: Amuse Palette


I know...finally right! Sorry, it's hectic in my world, I wish I could blog all day, unfortunately I also have a real job and surprisingly a life, LOL! I actually write my posts in advance sometimes and save it as a draft, then I just publish it one by one. It's much easier that way for me...since I love writing, I just break things into sections. :)

I originally submitted this review for the Amuse Palette to Cherry Culture for my Insider Pick (where you can purchase this palette), but they used the KleanColor Palette article instead, so I thought id write one here.

4 out of 5
Packaging: 5 out of 5
Color-Payoff: 5 out of 5
Overall: 5 out of 5

Price: $8 (not including shipping)

What it is: It's a medium-sized eyeshadow palette with a wide range of color, featuring 2 blushes on the bottom, the darker blush can be used for light contouring or bronzing. Also comes with sponge-tipped applicators and a tiny brush (not pictured).

What I like about it: Comes in a variety of awesome colors in a nice easy-to-open compact palette with a mirror. They are VERY pigmented and have great color payoff, yes similar to MAC if not better, it goes on easily to a smooth finish, and stays on too! Seriously the color payoff is incredible for it being only $8! It's also great for traveling or for touch-ups, you can just pop this baby in your purse. I think the blushes are cool too, haven't tried the darker one, but it's matte so it may be nice for contouring or bronzing. The light one gives a nice flush of rose.

What I don't like about it: Each POT is too small for me that at times it's grueling trying to get your sponge-tipped applicator in there or brush to pick up some color, but you adjust to it easily. There's also a perfume/grandma type smell, nothing bad or nasty, just a perfum-y smell, it's just weird to me for eyeshadows to have a fragrance...

I like this palette a lot, and it's cheap! You get so many colors to choose from and all for $8, I like how it has a mirror, blushes, and applicators. Makes it a lot easy to use and readily accessible for a gal on the go!

***There are NO individual names for the eyeshadows, so I did it by ROW (L to R).

That's a great starter kit for someone who just wants wants to try new colors, but is afraid of blowing a bunch of dough. Nice find chicka.

great review! i use to like pallets but then when i do my makeup i tend to go towards all singles so i don't really bother to buy them anymore.

e said...

Aw man! I saw that the other day when I went to order the NYX concealor in a Jar (After reading your review!) but didn't order it bc I'm not a big eyeshadow person, but the colors are so pretty! Too bad it's sold out!

Thanks for the review!

Good review sis. They are really pigmented!

I have drafts up the wazoo too. It's so easy to fall behind, it's scary!

So I just got my Amuse Make-up Set in the mail and I was super excited! I was a little skeptical about the quality at first but once I saw it up,close and personal I was fine! The shadows are pretty pigmented and they glide on wonderfully and the color range (neutrals, vibrant, and smokey!)is perfect for a beginner like myself I cannot wait to play around with the colors and come up with some great looks! I haven't tried the pressed poweder simply because it is too light but I will be trying the blush! I give this kit an 8.3!
