I’m serious about my plan to explore more indie brands in 2017. I’ve tried Give Me Glow Cosmetics liquid lipsticks before so this is not a completely new brand to me but this is my first time trying their eyeshadows. They’ve been making eye shadow singles for a while but I believe this is their first full pre-made palette. The Staple Palette has 12 shades, each in removable 36mm magnetic pans (which I love) and a total product weight of 3.5g/0.12oz. There are 9 mattes, 1 satin, and 2 metallic finish shadows in the palette.
I haven’t tested everyone of these shadows on the eye yet but they all swatched well in one swipe on my arm. The only one that was a little less pigmented was “MOTD” the matte mustard yellow shade. Overall, I’m loving this palette so far. It’s neutral and versatile without being boring, which can be hard to do with the flood of neutral palettes we’ve been seeing in recent years.
