Good Morning. I have a hundred things on my agenda right now and running in so many directions that I have not had a chance to review the Palladio Makeup kindly sent for review! Thank you to Palladio for sponsoring this sparkly post and for your patience in my hectic schedule.
I love all beauty products especially makeup of the sparkly kind. So, when Palladio asked me which products I would like to try I was excited to jump on board and choose 5 key staples I always have in my makeup bag.
First, let me introduce you to Palladio. They are a cosmetic company from Hollywood, Florida and founded over 25 years ago by industry experts. What make them different from other cosmetic lines is that Palladio is known for color cosmetics enriched with herbs and vitamins. Yes please. Some of the ingredients used in Palladio products are antioxidants such as Ginseng, Green Tea, Gingko Biloba, Vitamin E and natural humectants and skin soothers such as Aloe Vera and Chamomile which is “yay” for your skin and smells really good too. It is sold at professional beauty supply stores and high-end specialty retailers in over 40 countries so you can pick up your favorite Palladio makeup no matter what country you are visiting or currently residing. The bonus is Palladio’s unique ability to deliver high quality products, rapid innovation and exceptional customer service, all at a value price point. Everyone loves good quality products while being able to save money in their wallet. Right? I do!
I love a dramatic eye and a nude lip – with sparkles of course!
So, my 5 picks were:
1. CRUSHED Metallica Eye Shadow /COLOR: Eclipse
I am a huge lover of wearing gold sparkle eye shadow on my lid. This shadow has good pigment and not a lot of runoff which scores major points with me. It is super hard to find a gold shadow that has pigment and doesn’t bleed all over the face. This one rocks.
2. BAKED Eye Shadow Trio/ COLOR: Caffe Latte
Yes, I picked two eye shadows, actually 4 if you are counting. This three in one palette is what I need for my big brown eyes in addition to the pop of gold from the Crushed Metallic in Eclipse. The highlighter is a light white and but perfect for daytime without looking like you are going to a club. I hate that. There is a time and place for overdoing the white highlighter and during the day is never the time. The darker brown is natural for the crease of your eye without making you look like you have a black eye. Again, less is usually more especially when referring to daytime makeup. You do not want to look like you went 10 rounds with Mike Tyson. I definitely liked this combo and great to throw in your bag on the go! Don’t leave home without it. **You can make the shadow wet to give a more dramatic look for the evening!
3. GLITTER Pencil/ COLOR: Black Sparkle
The name says it all. The eye liner pencil is soft and doesn’t hurt during application. The black is a nice shade. It is not jet-black but more of a soft black with a hint of sparkle. If you are going out during the evening you might want to add a little more sparkle and a few applications of the liner to make it darker!
This mascara is good. It is not the most curling curly mascara but it does the trick. It opens your eyes for sure. Very natural looking and does a great job separating the lashes without being clumpy! Plus, it is very delicate on the eyes.
5. PLUMP N’ SHINE Lip Gloss/ COLOR: Crystal Ice
This smells yummy and is not sticky at all! The worst part about some brands of lipgloss is getting your hair stuck to your kissable pout. This gloss will not do that which scores huge points with me. I chose a clear, which gives me a nice natural look with just a hint of sparkle. There are so many colors to choose from which is fun. I would love to try the Pearly Pink. The gloss is also super moisturizing and important. I think I felt my lips plumping just a little bit too. SCORE!
