Hey glitter babes, I’m back!
I took a bit over a month off from blogging and social media because December was one of the worst months of my life. I felt like my world was crashing down around me and I had nothing to look forward to anymore. It really messed up the holidays which is a time of the year that I really cherish, so I didn’t celebrate it as much as I have in the past. I will tell you guys more about what happened in a future post when I’m ready, but for now I just wanted to tell you why I have been away for so long.
And back to the review!
Kevyn Aucoin was the first makeup artist that truly opened my eyes to the world of makeup artistry. When my mom bought me his book “Making Faces”, it changed my life and I was totally obsessed with it. I’ve wanted to buy something from his new makeup line but nothing really stood out until this palette came along. Fortunately, I was gifted the Electropop Pro Eyeshadow Palette for Christmas and wanted to share this beautiful palette with you guys!
Kevyn Aucoin’s Electropop Pro Eyeshadow Palette is a limited edition palette that will help you create an endless amount of 3D chromatic looks and fun effects from light, sheer shimmer to highly metallic and opaque finishes. The shadows combine a mix of pop pearls and pigments to give you a stunning multidimensional look that has a weightless feel to it.

My Glittery Thoughts:
Holy metallics! These eyeshadows are very buttery and when swatched, they are so soft that they flake a bit. You do not, however get any matte transition shades with this palette so it’s definitely not an all-in-one palette but it’s still a lot of fun to use. In order to get the most out of it, you’ll have to use your fingers for maximum colour pay off. You can use brushes to apply these shades, but since they have that buttery, almost wet feel to them, they apply a bit more sheer and not as vibrant as they are when applied with your fingers. I love using this palette to amplify a look created with another palette and give it that extra pop of colour. These colours look the most amazing on the lids and can be used for a variety of looks since you not only get bright shades but also neutrals in there too. So, if you love colour and vibrant metallic, buttery shades, you will enjoy this palette as much as I do!
