If you don’t love Mint Aero, then we can’t be friends. I’m sorry but who doesn’t?! This palette from I Heart Makeup just screams Mint Aeros to me and I couldn’t be happier about that! The lime green dripping chocolate design on the case looks good enough to eat and the eyeshadows inside… well you’ll be just as impressed.
Inside the palette are 16 beautiful shades – very autumnal, very warm, with some exciting and unique tones thrown into the mix. The yellow gold was what drew me most to the palette as I don’t have anything like it. Inside the lid is a huuuuuge mirror – something I’ve come to expect from all the Makeup Revolution and sister brands palettes now. The palette itself actually smells of mint chocolate too, which resulted in me dragging Baby J to our local Tesco to buy myself a bag of Mint Aero balls! Oops!
The red shade in this palette on the second row is absolutely STUNNING – I just have to put that out there. It looks perfect with the copper shade next to it and I can’t stop wearing them together. Absolutely spot on for this time of year!
I found that the eyeshadows swatched well, with just a couple of the matte shades taking more than one dip of the finger to get a decent swatch. The simmers however, swatched beautifully and were very pigmented.
This is one of those palettes that is lots of fun to experiment with – there are some unique shades in there that compliment each other and have high impact on the eyes. I love the shimmery greens so much, I just now have to get brave enough to use them!
