Sonia Kashuk eye on neutral shimmer palette

Yet another Targetgate™ item up for review, the Sonia Kashuk eye on neutral shimmer 03 eye shadow palette ($20 Target).  I originally was on the hunt for the all matte version of this palette but considering that they were all sold out, I settled for the shimmer one.  The palette consists of 12 individual shadows of 0.8g each for a total of 9.6g.  The shades range from a light champagne to a deep smokey charcoal.  The palette is aptly named as the neutral palette as it has a blend of warm and cool shades but overall, the palette is neutral.

Warning: do not use on lip area. (Click to enlarge for ingredient list)
The palette came completely shrink wrapped but for some reason there’s a smudge mark on the middle pan, top row.

The top 2 rows consist mostly of light to medium neutral shades.  My much-loved of this grouping are the lower 3, especially #4 and #6.  Both are smooth and pigmented, and individually, can work as a single shadow eye look.

But my favourites out of this whole palette are contained in the bottom portion – #8 through #11 are my kind of taupey shades (#9 hubada hubada!)   These all apply well onto the lids and blend beautifully.  A couple of the shades (#8 and #10) are a touch chalkier with less pigmentation relative to the rest, but they’re not horrible by any means.

I’m honestly very shocked at how much I like this palette – I wore it straight for a week to test it, but even after the mandated trial week was over, I found myself still reaching for this palette.  Aside from not having any mattes, it’s still a versatile palette for casual looks (top rows) or creating dramatic smokey look (bottom rows).  The shadows are good quality – they wore well through the day with minor fading but no creasing – I would compare the quality to that of Inglot or NYX.

• inexpensive ($2.08 per gram)
• pigmented
• smooth formula, easy to blend
• versatile colours
• slim palette, approx 4 1/2″ x 3″ x 3/8″

• all shimmers (and it’s clearly stated in the palette name, nothing a matte transition shade can’t fix)
• some fading after 8 hour wear (on top of eye shadow primer / base)

Stash worthiness: 8/10

Aktualizace! Just as I’m updating this entry in preparation to schedule the post, I drop this palette on the floor while being my clumsy self and this is the aftermath:

Warning: this palette may not be suitable for clumsy people or traveling on safari. See how dedicated I am to testing ALL aspects of a product for review? Drop test included. Nemáš zač. *cries* RIP not so lucky #7.
