I admit: I’m a sucker for beautiful eyeshadow palettes and even though I have already way too many, I could not resist when I saw this gem in the beauty shelf… Greedy me had to have it! So, here’s a review:
First of: it is a square palette with 16 colors going from matt to shimmery. Pink/orange/warm brown and gold are the best colours to describe it. The packaging shows a preview of the colours and has a bright pink backside. Poppin’!
When you take it out of the box, you reveal the all-pink palette that is made out of a hard cardbox that seems quite sustainable to me.
When you open it, you immediately fall in love with the colours… Well, I know I did 🙂 Notice also the big mirror on the inside. That’s a plus for me as well! No need to drag a separate one around.
Ok, I’ll discuss the colours now row by row, left to right and each row top to bottom. Next, I’ll show swatches on my arm:
- Hula: a warm champaign colour, full of sparkle.
- Ohana: a matt, light pink colour
- Tiki: a matt, warm light brown
- Maui: a matt, slightly darker brown
As you can see, Ohana is bit more peachy once applied to my skin, and also Tiki has an orange undertone. The next ones:
- Shaka: a matt, beige colour
- Pineapple: a sparkly, gold with a hint of rosé colour
- Sandy: like it says: a sparkly, light brown sand colour
- Waikiki: a sparkly, little darker brown sand colour
Also here, Waikiki appears a bit more warm and orange as in the palette. Then we have:
Hibiscus: a matt, light orange colour
Lei: a matt, peachy orange colour
Coconut: a matt, orangy/brown colour
Mahalo: a matt, warmer brown colour
Wow, Hibiscus and Lei are definitely more pigmented than I imagined! Intense colours, so be careful when applying this! Last row:
Luau: a bordeaux, sparkly colour
Aloha: a matt, bit rusty orange colour
Paradise: a matt, bright pink colour
Honolulu: a matt, dark brown colour
Look at that magnificent Luau! From looking bordeaux in the palette, it turned intu looking so versatile on my arm! I see also here hints of orange, warmt, pink. Almost like a warm sunset.
I didn’t make an eyelook yet – but hopefully you get a bit of an image what you get now 😉 The palette contains 16 grams (that’s 1 gram per eyeshadow) and it costs € 15,95 here in Germany.
Curious to hear your thoughts!
