The Light and Glimmer palette is inspired by their best-selling Shade and Light matte eye contour palette.

It has twelve eyeshadow in varying “glimmer” finishes, such as shimmering satin base colour, pearl-metallic contour shades, reflective glitter define shades and the special effect glimmer topcoat that adds light-catching dimension (almost holographic effect) upon application.

The topcoat shades are not as pigmented as the others and a little sheer, which is understandable as it can be used to transform the colour and finish of the other eyeshadow in the palette.

The layout of this eyeshadow palette is quite user-friendly as it is organised in neutral, warm toned and cool toned quads with three base colour in  larger pan sizes.

The brand described the Shade and Light Palette as “an artist’s truest expression of glitter”. Yes, I definitely agree with this statement. This palette is perfect for shimmer and glitter lovers.

We can build a look within the palette by layering different levels of “glimmer” to achieve eye-opening effects or pair it up with any matte shades that we have to round up an exquisite result each time.

The brand also claim that “each velvety powder is blendable and buildable”, which I feel is true only to a certain extent. On my eyelids, It is reasonably blendable but not really buildable as the glitter infused in the eyeshadow tend to separate themselves, causing quite a bit of fall-out if used without any primer. I could only build it up twice before getting quite a messy fall out.

I could create numerous natural looks with this palette. Paired-up with one or two shades jewel-toned eyeshadows that we already have, we could create endless number of looks.

Overall, this palette is a good buy if you are into shimmer and glitter. Otherwise, it is not a must-have palette that we can’t live without.

This palette is vegan and a cruelty free product.
