After receiving the beautiful Coax Palette from my husband for Christmas, I decided to treat myself to another palette from Sample Beauty. I fell in love with the bold colours and fantastic pigmentation, so went with another palette containing bright and unique shades – the Kismet Palette.
Inside the palette are 16 beautiful shades – 11 shimmers and 5 mattes. Once again, the mattes are absolutely incredible. So so pigmented and bold – use sparingly! The shimmers are stunning – I’m blown away by the brightness and beauty of the light blue shade on the bottom row, far left. I just had to use it on my eyes last night, even though my eyes are already blue, I couldn’t let that colour go to waste. The shimmers transfer to the eyes beautifully, I didn’t once have to wet my brush or use my finger for better pigment. Check out the swatches for yourself –
This palette also contains a very fair matte shade which matches my skin tone exactly (it doesn’t show up in the swatches). This eyeshadow is perfect for setting the primer on my eyelid and produces a nice, even base. My only downside to this palette is that there isn’t a suitable transition/crease shade for my skin tone. The browns are just a bit too dark to use in my crease – I’m really not brave enough! This wouldn’t be a problem for everyone though. Plus, I have plenty of eyeshadow palettes with neutral transition colours in them, so I’m really not fussed.
I have to mention the packaging for this palette too. I love it! I love its simplicity – just a white outer cardboard case with the brand printed in black. It is also super slim-lined, without compromising the size of the pans – you get a lot of product for your money! There is a mirror inside the lid too – which you all know by now, is something I really appreciate.
