I promised reviews on the products I won in the 2nd Love Cosmetics spring makeup contest, and here's the first one! The 2nd Love Cosmetics Glitzy Glam Eye Palette in Modest Glam is an eye palette that comes with 5 beautiful shades of orange, peach, and pastel purple hues. It costs $4.99 on 2ndlovecosmetics.com.
These shades all have a very smooth texture, and blend easily. They don't feel as soft and buttery as some brands, but they definitely aren't powdery. When I use these shades I get small amounts of glitter/shimmery fall out, but nothing that can't easily be swept away with a fan or powder brush.
On the eyes these lasts at least 8 hours on my with a primer. The darker shades last a lot longer on my eyes without fading than the lighter shades.
The cool thing about this palette is that each shade has a mix of different colors in it, so the color when swatched can look very different from how it looks in the pan. Check out these swatches to see what I'm talking about:
Here's a look I did a few days ago using this palette. I was able to create a very soft, summery look with it.
To summarize, this is a inexpensive palette with beautiful, summery shades, smooth eyeshadows, and reliable lasting power. If you're looking for a palette with pretty peachy/orange shades, give this one a try!
