About Accessorize Exposed Palette:
Multi tonal 32 Shade Eye shadow palette with cool, warm bright and nude colour.
Price: £9.00, I got this for Rs 900 from Jabong using discount code.
My Take On Accessorize Exposed 32 Shades Palette:
Packaging: Accessorize Expose palette comes in a sleek compact colorful palette form which is very convenient to carry during travelling. Beautiful pictures of flowers and butterfly along with brand name is embossed on the cover. Complete ingredient list is mentioned on the back side of the palette. A cute pink elastic band is attached to the palette for closing the cover. A wide mirror is encased at the inner side the cover of the palette, which is very useful for touch ups. No eye shadow brush or applicator is provided with this palette so it may be a con for beginners. I never use eye shadow applicators provided with any eye shadow palette so I do not mind it.
Shades: This palette contains some 32 eye shadows of different finish and each of the shadow contains 0.5 gram of product. Most of shades are dupes of Mac and inglot eye shadows. If you love neutrals and prefer golds, browns foe your eye makeup then definitely grab this palette. Its a fantastic palette containing every possible neutral shade.
Texture & Finish: Maximum shades in palette have pearlescent finish, lighter ones are frosty and some of them also have fine shimmers in them. Few other shadows have matte finish. All the shadows are quite soft in texture. Pearlescent shadows have velvety silk kind texture which helps in better adherence.
Pigmentation: Shades with pearl finish are intensely pigmented. These shades show up on my lid without an eye primer and do not need layering. Some of the matte shades are moderately pigmented but buildable and few others are poorly pigmented and needs a primer underneath to show up on pigmented lid. One or two matte shades are poorly pigmented and chalky. The frosty shadows are pigmented but they do not suit me at all.
Staying Power: Shadows with pearl finish have better staying power, they stay for nearly 4 hours with minimal creasing, whereas the matte ones stay for 2-3 hours maximum on my eyes, frosty ones stay for some 3 hours or so. Staying power is pretty decent. It can be enhanced further with an eye primer underneath.
