Holiday Palette Beauty Review




Thanks to Brand Backer, I was able to give Studio Gear Cosmetics Holiday Smokey Eye Palette (c/o) a try. Well packaged, the palette features four different eye colors as well as a blush. I stepped out of my comfort zone a bit with this product as I tend to gravitate towards tans and browns versus charcoals and grays. Despite this, I thought the finished product was great.

Overall, I thought the packaging was both fun and efficient, with the pallette itself protected inside a decorative slipcover.


 Eye:
Glimmer // Gold
Platinum // White
Frost // Gray
Coal // Dark Charcoal

Cheek:
Snowy Glow // Rosy


The Holiday Palette includes instructions, and though I gave those a try, I ultimately stuck with my normal eye and cheek routine. For my features, the Coal was much to dark and clownish when following the directions given. I went minimal on the coal, only using those in the corners of the eye, and I used more of the Glimmer and Platinum and the Frost. To finish up my routine, I added my everyday bronzer, liner, mascara, and lip color before topping off my cheeks with Snowy Glow.


Final Review:
As a whole, I liked this product. Though I don't believe I'll use it every day, I will definitely use it for a girl's night out or date night. I doubt I will use Coal very often, but I will most definitely add Glimmer into my eye makeup routine. I was also a huge fan of the cheek color, Snowy Glow, and could see myself using that on a daily basis.
