In a recent GlossyBox I received a little beauty of an eyeshadow palette in the form of the Trifle Cosmetics Praline Palette.
The Palette retails for £15.55, and contains six eyeshadows in a range of shades from khaki to bronze to purple. The formula is 100% Vegan and is said to be free of Mineral Oil, Parabens, Phthalates, and Gluten. The formula is also HypoAllergenic and 100% Cruelty-Free.
The company claims that the eyeshadows are ‘creamy yet vivid’ but is that claim true?
Well, for some of the shadows yes, however not all the shadows were created equal.
The metallic golden shade on the end packs a punch and is beautiful, the purple however looks stunning in the pan but in reality it really lacks in pigment and is super disappointing, even trying to pack the product on results in very little pay off, the same can be said for the blueish silver, that is another disappointing shade in the palette. The two bronzey browns are two of the most pigmented shades in the palette, but are very similar when swatched.
But, my overall issue with the palette isn’t the pigmentation because lets face it, with a little bit of time and patience it can be built up into something really pretty, but the issue is that all six shades are shimmers meaning there is nothing to use as a crease or transition shade. So whilst the palette is the perfect size for travelling, its just not practical.
So would I recommend it?
Honestly, no I don’t think that I would. As you can see from the photos in this post some of colours are just really disappointing and the pallet is £15 for six shades and I think only three of the shades are worth looking at.
I think for the money you would be much better off buying the Sleek Storm Palette. The palette doesn’t have the exact shades but the colour story is similar, the pigment is better and it also has the advantage of having a few matte shades in amongst the shimmers so that you can create a full look with just one pallet.
I mean at the end of the day its up to you guys what you spend your money but the pallet is just a little bit lacklustre in my opinion which is such a shame because the packaging is super cute and I wanted to like it so much.
Have you tried this palette? If so what did you think? If not, do you think you would?
Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed!
Talk to you soon!
