February is just flying with only 9 more days until Pancake Day 😊
Today I’m going to be reviewing the Seventeen Emphasise eyeshadow palette, my cousin gave this to me for Christmas and I was really excited to try it out as I had been eyeing (see what I did there?) up their palettes for a while. I really like compact palettes because they’re easy to transport and I find the packaging is usually a little more robust.
Talking about the packaging, it is a lovely sleek black hard casing which has a secure snap closure and a minimalist logo on the front. It is a finger print magnet but that’s a the nature of having a solid colour casing.
My only slight criticism is that nowhere does it have shade colours, practically this isn’t a real problem but it’s not ideal when you’re trying to convey the colours you used in a tutorial.
Enclosed are 8 circular full size pans of colour which are purple, grey and blue tones.
The first thing I noticed is the colour in the pan isn’t how it looks on the skin, I really like the first and third shade from this row.
These are the dark shades with the best payoff and stayed more or less true to the pan.
Overall I liked the colours, you do need to build some of them up but they do wear well on the eyes. I would definitely recommend this palette if you want to get in to darker colours or if you want a travel palette.
Let me know in the comments below if you’ve tried this palette or other ones by Seventeen ⬇
Love and (high)light✌
