I am on a day off from work due to a
unexpected local holiday. But that does not mean I am in for a whole day of lounging and relaxing. I still have to grind for the week so yes, still no holiday for me then! Before I go berserk with the things I have to prepare for and do, allow me to spend a few minutes to talk about beauty.
When was the last time I reviewed an eyeshadow palette? Honestly, I can't remember. I seldom wear eye makeup just because I don't have enough time, on my workday, to spend whipping and blending colors. If I do have an extra 5 minutes, I would normally just spend it perfecting my brows. But on days I feel like I want to give my eyes some pop, expect me to go all the way -- bold and smokey.
I got the POP Beauty Bright Up Your Life eyeshadow palette early this year when I attended the launch. The shades that come in the Smokin' Hot palette are almost similar to those that I already have, thus, it didn't excite me that much. But when I was organizing my collection and I was, at all sorts, guilty that I don't give much time to my makeup, I decided to give it a spin. Lo and behold, I found a treasure!
This palette of smoky hues adds definition & intensity, all you need to create the perfect defined eye. from enhancing nudes to sultry deep metallics, these hues blend smoothly and have fast become our must-have smoky palette.
If you're still a bit shy on going with a full-blown smoky eye, then this palette might be overwhelming for you. In a positive way, though. The shades give off intense pigmentation that helps one in achieving the perfectly defined smoky eye.
The color goes on smoothly on the lids and stays intact even without a primer. Blending the colors is a breeze though I hope it comes with a matte brown shade for crease definition and matte pearl for highlight.
This was how I whipped most of the colors on the palette. There's nothing underneath the colors, no base nor a layer of foundation. This eye makeup stayed on until the time I decided to take it off. No fading nor creasing happened, though it must be considered that my lids are not that oily.
Price-wise is okay. Php868.00 for a decent palette will sure not hurt. The dual-ended brush it comes with is useable too though I still think having a crease brush and a fluffy blending brush help in the definition.
The POP Beauty Bright Up Your Life Smokin Hot is great palette to have if you're up on the smoky eye game. There's no matte shades in the palette so make sure to tag along your crease definition and highlighting shades to achieve your perfect smoky eye!
