I'm am still new to the Paula Dorf brand, but I've been loving the products I've tried so far. Today's review is of the Paula Dorf Aztec City Eyeshadow Palette which is $36 and the Teal Mascara which is $22.
The sleek, black packaging is very sturdy, and has a nice mirror. Inside are five eyeshadows, along with a double sided brush.
The Eyeshadows: The moment I first touched these eyeshadows, I could tell that they were of very high quality. They feel very smooth, and they are not powdery at all. With a primer, these last all day without fading and creasing.
The first three shades are shimmery, and the last two shades have a matte finish, so there's a nice arrangement of finishes. I also like the shade selection. There is a shade for blending, one for highlighting and one for deepening the crease as well as two gorgeous lid shades.
Here are swatches of each shade. The teal is my favorite because it is a duo chrome with gold shimmer.
The Teal Mascara: When I first heard about this mascara I thought it was going to be very bright, but it is actually a very wearable shade. The brush is traditional with bristles spiraling around the wand, and the formula isn't too wet or dry. I don't find the formula or the brush to be anything special, but the shade is so pretty as a pop of color on the lower lash line.
I was really impressed with these eyeshadows, and I highly recommend them. They are definitely worth the price for the quality, and it contains shades that I could use on a daily basis as well as a nice brush. Also, the teal mascara looks nice with the Aztec City palette because of the blue shade in the palette.
