Haul & Swatches: Mehron Aqua Paradise Palettes in Pastel & Tropical

.



I was so happy to finally receive my Mehron Paradise Palettes today (and a Ben Nye Lumiere e/s in "Turquiose")! They are water-activated moist cakes that go on super pigmented once dry and really have remarkable staying power. They are easily removed with soap and water, but even there was still a bit on me, so it stays on! I saw xsparkage do a video on these and I was intrigued. :)

I can't wait to do a look with these! You can get them from Bubba Sikes or from Stage Supply.

So how do these differ from the MUFE (Make Up For Ever) Flash Color Pots and MAC Paint Pots?

The MUFE Flash Color Pots are pigmented as well, but the consistency is that of a cream, so it tends to crease and you must use a lot of eyeshadow on top control it from creasing, but even then it comes off easily and doesn't stay on.
The MAC Paint Pots are awesome, I love them and they have become a staple in my makeup bag, they too dry to a nice finish making it a decent base (for ME anyway) and since they come in different colors it can enhance the look of your eyeshadows. However, they do not have a wide range of colors (such as a bright purple or a yellow).
The Mehron Palettes come in bright and basic eye-catching colors, very pigmented and vibrant, dries to a nice finish and stays on. Makes a great base to bring out the colors of eyeshadows, also great for face painting since they are true in color, made with aloe and chamomile and other ingredients that are safe to use on the face.

I also got a single Ben Nye Lumiere Eyeshadow in "Turquiose" (swatch is in the video):

those colors are so vibrant! I'd probably never use them since I do a lot of neutral makeup, but I can't wait to see what sort of looks you come up using these with the rest of your makeup :)

Hi, Vanessa! The colors are really pretty! I agree Jesmakeup, they do look like paint, which brings me to my question: are they easy to blend? Thanks a bunch!

Alyssa said...

I've been seeing this palettes a lot lately on people's blog and youtube. They look so pretty and bright. You definitely can pull this off! :)

By the way what do you use for editing your video?

I can't wait to hear your story on how the Korean cooking came out. I've been hearing good and bad stuff... lol~

Anastasia said...

Oh you knowwww I'm gonna get those =O

ainstein said...

both palettes look soooo gorgeous! im so tempted to buy it. i dont think i should cos it will just be a waste since i dont put on a lot of make up (mainly cause im lazy haha). i got the ben nye palette and now its just sitting collecting dust in the bathroom. i should resist the temptation to buying this mehron palette! lol it doesnt help that ive been reading a lot of good reviews on it.

Robyn @ Purely Cosmetics said...

Too bad I'm too much of an old lady to pull of these colors as well - can't wait for you to do some FOTD's with them. But mostly I had to post just to let you know I almost peed in my pants on your video about how you didn't waste any water! LMAO
