Studio Gear: Holiday Smokey Eye Palette

Sunday, December 08, 2013

Studio Gear's Holiday palette is here! My first experience with Studio Gear products was via an Ipsy Glam Bag back in May 2012 and while I liked the lipstick what I really wanted to try were shadows or blushes. I've never heard of this company before Ipsy and thanks to BrandBacker I had the chance to try both in the Studio Gear Holiday Smokey Eye Palette!

First impressions: This reminds me of another palette I bought in September. In fact it's almost the same size as that palette packaging being just a smidgen smaller. The shadow pans and the blush pan are normal size which is nice since many similar palettes tend to have smaller eyeshadow pans.

There are four shadows and one blush in the Studio Gear Holiday Smokey Palette and one blush. The color choices are lovely and almost universally flattering.
  • Snowy Glow (blush)
  • Frost (shadow)
  • Coal (shadow)
  • Platinum (shadow)
  • Glimmer (shadow)

Now I do have to point out the label on the inside cover showing which color is what is absolutely wrong. Platinum, Frost and Coal are ordered differently in the instructions to where the products are actually placed. So for those who want to follow the directions make sure you don't go by how the colors are listed otherwise you might end up using Coal instead of Frost.

Oh and before I forget, you need to use these with a base or primer otherwise Frost and Glimmer don't pop.
