Spring has sprung and my thoughts are turning to bright, fresh spring makeup colours.
To celebrate the DreamWorks movie Trolls, one of my favorite cosmetics companies, PUR Cosmetics released the PUR DreamWorks Trolls Eye Shadow Palette. Never mind the candy props and funny name, this is serious makeup for grown ass beauties who love good eye shadow.
Contained in a slim, portable, silver toned sturdy paperboard magnetic palette is a get yo primp on, on the go sized mirror and sixteen eye shadows in a mix of wearable neutrals and fun, bright pops of colour and textures that can all be mixed and matched to create all kinds of eye looks.
Have a closer look at the shadowy goodness. Isn't this palette pretty? Rich, warm neutrals in shades of brown, bronze, gold, rusts and oranges. There is a stunning silvery lavender, (Guy Diamond) and Satin & Chenille is a beautiful, semi sheer white that shifts to an almost otherworldly, glowing plasmic purple. Branch is a glorious, intense blue with a strong duochrome shift and Poppy is a shocking, brilliant pink that has a surprisingly good formula for a colour like this.
Below are my usual, craptastic swatches. I think I'm going to become famous for insanely bad swatches, one of these days.
I tried to capture that plasmic purple glow from Satin & Chenille but my camera just couldn't get there.
Overall, the quality of these shadows is very good. All of the colours are pigmented, the mattes are smooth and the shimmers velvety to the touch. A couple of shades, D J Suki, Fuzzy and Poppy are a little bit stiff to the touch but all of the shadows pick up, apply, build and blend effortlessly and smoothly. I need to remember to tap my brush, as the mattes, especially can kick up a bit of powder and this helps prevent fallout. If you want to go but mad crazy, full out colour explosion on your eyes, applying shadow before foundation may be a good idea but that's the case with just about any eye shadow.
I like the PUR Cosmetics Trolls Eye Shadow Palette. It is a lovely, solid performer that is just a little more fun than the usual. What do you think, gentle reader? Does this look like a palette you'd like to pick up? It is currently available at Kohl's, both in store and online.
