Review: Cynthia Rowley Eyeshadow Palette #1

contains five lustrous shades to take you from day to night—and everywhere in between. 

About the product:

The Eye Shadow Palette No.1 comes in this beautiful Cynthia Rowley floral runway print. It is encased in this slim cardboard box with a magnetic closing. There's a mirror on the other side of the eyeshadows that is just big enough to see your eyes. This palette retails for $24 on CynthiaRowley.com and on Birchbox.com

Check out the packaging on the palette as seen on this picture
  • It comes with five eyeshadow round pans. The colors are as follows as described on the CynthiaRowley.com site:
    • Clove - a deep matte brown
    • Sugarplum - velvety taupe
    • Patina - gold-speckled plum
    • Mink - light brown 
    • Champagne - shimmery gold highlight

My Verdict:

As you already know, this made it to my May Favorites so it's no surprise that I love this palette! I love the slim packaging with magnetic closure since it makes traveling with it easier. The mirror is big enough to see what I am doing to my eye makeup but I am used to a magnified mirror so I don't use it as much.

The arm swatch above are only just one swipe from the pan. The colors are pretty pigmented, except for Clove and Champagne.  The shade Champagne, its very subtle when you don't build this color. This shade has a nice yellow tone to it but it is not bright enough for me to use as my inner corner highlight. I do use this shade in the center of my lid to add brightness to the eye makeup. Clove, is a matte brown shade, that is just great to give the eye look some depth, just like how they used it on the picture above. I would not use this though to do a very dark smokey eye because pigmentation wise, you will have to build it a bit to achieve that dark smokey eye.

My most used shade in this palette is Sugarplum. Very wearable for day time to night! I have used Patina + Clove as my smokey eye color since I don't like the heavy, dark smokey look. 

Overall, I just love how the colors of this palette just compliment my skin tone. This palette I think will look great with any skin tone actually. It is a great addition of colors to any other eyeshadow palettes you have as well!

I unfortunately do not have any makeup looks for you right now as I keep forgetting to take some pictures. Do follow my Instagram (@_j4ckie_) though, that's where I usually post my makeup look, when I do remember!
