I know my warm-tone lovers are screaming on the inside (and maybe outside) right now @ this beauty – am right?! Karity recently released their Just Peachy Eyeshadow Palette and OMG is it incredible!! The palette includes with 15 suuuuuper pigmented shadows that are absolutely to.die.for. The absolutely crazy part is that entire palette retails for only $25 – whaaaaa? Less than $2 per shade is nuuuuuts ESPECIALLY for these. These are literally high-end shadows just with a drugstore price tag. Period.
We got our hands on this super soon after it launched and put them to the test – we are happy to report: we are IN LOVE! I mean, check out those swatches on my freckly little arm. Like, WOAH! In fact, this palette checked just about every box: matte cream shade for the lid – CHECK; matte transition shade – CHECK; balanced selection of mattes and shimmers – CHECK; suuuuuper creamy texture – CHECK; bold, almost metallic shimmer shades that need NO enhancer – CHECK! We could go on and on and on. We only wish that the deep shade in the palette was slightly deeper – as you can see, there aren’t many options here for a darker look. But hey, not all of us can get down with that deep grungy stuff anyway, am I right?
The shimmers are definitely best applied with your finger to pack as much punch on the lid as possible. But when I say they are THE MOST PIGMENTED shimmers I have ever used, I actually mean it. Other shimmers applied with the help of setting spray or glitter glue STILL pale in comparison to the pure pigment of these. It’s unreal. The mattes blend out like a freaking DREAM with one another without any patchiness & without any fall out. I repeat – NO FALL OUT. With any of the shades! There wasn’t even any kick up in the pan either which is probably one of the best features of this palette – no shadow falling all over your cheeks and no wasted product kicking up in the pan that you need to blow away or tap off of your brush. I’m not sure what Karity’s formula or pressing process is, but ABH may be able to take some lessons if you know what I mean..
For those of you that thought the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette fell a little flat or didn’t offer the selection of peach tones that you were expecting – look no further. This palette is what the Sweet Peach could have been… Karity just killed it. I even want to rave about the mirror in here because I feel as though sooooooo many palettes that I’ve tried recently don’t even come with a mirror at all, let along a mirror this big. That component, paired with the compact but sturdy packaging, certainly make this a PERFECT travel companion. You can complete such a huge range of looks with the shade selection here, too. From rather bold with pops of orange and gold to subtle with the browns and soft champagnes. I’m telling you, this is an all in one, MVP, winner winner chicken dinner. It also doesn’t hurt that they’re cruelty free & vegan, too (as if we didn’t love them enough already!). Have you tried any Karity shadows before?! If so, let us know and leave recommendations for other palettes we NEED to try!
