Mehron Cheek Powder Palette

A good blush can do wonders to a look.  It can change up a look or add some colour to your face (especially on those days where you are feeling under the weather).

 

Mehron Cheek Powder Palette comes in 8 colours – TropiCoral, Rosewood, Mocha, Contour, Mojave, Wineberry, Just Peachy and Bold Red.  This palette has colours for people with the lighter skin tones to the darker skin tone.  The pigmentation of the blushes in this palette is EXCELLENT (yes, emphasis on excellent is required).  Just one very light tap of the brush in the the product can provide so much colour.   On the other hand, you do have to be careful with application because pigmentation is so rich!  There is no shimmer in any of the colours, so this gives a more natural finish.  One downside to this cheek palette is that the product goes everywhere when you dip the brush – a lot of “fall out”.

Packaging wise, it is excellent – light and sturdy.  There is a big mirror on the inside of the packaging.  This palette also comes with a brush but I would say the brush is pretty useless for blush application.  It could work for eyeshadow application.

 

Picture time!

TheBalm Nude Tude Palette

I’ve been doing a couple of looks using TheBalm’s Nude Tude Eyeshadow Palette.  Here are a few: Eyeliner Art look and the Summer look I’ve been loving this palette as it has a couple of matte and shimmer eyeshadows.  All the colours are in the Nude range – browns/pinks (with one yellow/gold eyeshadow).  Pigmentation of the eyeshadows in this palette is fantastic, although it does become powdery when you dip your brush into it.   This can get a little annoying as it can make your palette quite messy (you’ll see from the picture below).   You can do a daytime look and build on top of that and create a night time look. I lean more towards the shimmers because I have got monolids.  Monolids can tend to look a bit “flat” and shimmers help with creating a bit more dimension than matte eyeshadows.

The names for the eyeshadows are fantastic.  I think the names for all the products from this brand are pretty cool.  It’s definitely different to the usual “Raspberry colour” or “Shocking Pink” .  This palette comes with a brush which, I must say is pretty useless.  I do not like the brush at all and feels quite “plastic”.  There is a nice big mirror that comes with this palette, which is awesome for looking at yourself! (LOL! what else would you do with a mirror!)

Swatches on my hand was with only one swipe. Also note the eyeshadow has “spilled” all over the palette

Conclusion:

I love this palette!  This palette can pull of a day look and a night look.  Currently, it is my go-to palette for most of my looks. Comparatively to Urban Decay, this eyeshadow palette is slightly more expensive (Urban Decay comes with 1.3g for each eyeshadow while the eyeshadow in this palette is roughly 0.92g each).

Price:

AUD$49.95

Where to buy:

I bought this online, direct from the US website but you can buy this from David Jones

Would you get a palette like this?
