There are two shopping mantras I live by: you can never buy too many shoes and you can never have enough palettes. You should see my bedroom. But my latter motto might have to change, because I found the one palette that beats them all (no joke!). When POPSUGAR released a beauty line, I was so excited to try everything. I especially needed to get my hands on the Beauty by POPSUGAR Twilight Eye Shadow Palette ($25, originally $42) because I love the rose gold hues it offers. I recently got ahold of one, and I was so excited to give readers an honest review of the product.
For starters, I'm obsessed with the sunset design of the shades. There's the perfect amount of each colour to last you for ages. The combination of matte, satin, and shimmer shadows makes it easy to create a day or evening look, so it's a versatile palette. As soon as I started sweeping the shadows on my eyelids, I was shocked by how smooth and blendable they are. They are also very buildable, so you can create a subtle or dramatic look with ease.
For my look, I used lighter shades like Moonbeam and Cotton Clouds on the inner corners of my eyes. Eclipse and Constellation went into the creases of my eyelids to create depth. My favourite shadow is Sunset Sky, which is the large pot in the centre. I swept that all over my eyes and even dusted some on my cheekbones for a shimmery glow. This is the kind of look I would wear on the regular this Summer.
I think I'm going to push my other palettes to the back of my vanity, because all I can think about is this option. The Instagram-worthy design and high-quality shadows make it rise above the rest. Even better — Ulta is running a huge discount on this item for one week only. You can get a whopping 40 percent off on this must have as well as the Beauty by POPSUGAR Dawn Eye Shadow Palette ($25, originally $42).
Do me a favor and give it a try — you'll be as impressed as I am. Soon enough, everyone will be following suit.
