One thing about me…I’m a complete Instagram beauty junkie. Instagram is the best place to find out about upcoming makeup and the perfect place to obsess over the beautiful looks that people create. Some of my favorite artists that I follow are the Batalash Beauty girls. Now, if you haven’t heard of them before you need to check them out. Like, NOW! hehe They are incredibly talented and come up with the coolest looks! So, when I heard that they were getting together with a company called Saucebox Cosmetics to create a palette, I was SOLD! After following them for a good while, I knew that I could trust that they would team up with a great company to create an awesome product. And they did! From the design of the palette, to the shadow choices, to the pigmentation. It’s all so so good!
These shadow pans are HUGE. I know that when this palette was first announced, people were complaining about the $60 price tag. I have no idea what they were thinking, considering the amount of product that we are given. Let me put it into perspective for you.
Here’s a MAC eyeshadow next to a Saucebox shadow for comparison. A typical MAC eyeshadow contains 0.04oz of product and costs $16, or $10 for the pan only. A Make Up For Ever shadow contains 0.07oz of product and costs $21 for one shadow, $34 for two, and $44 for 3. These shadows contain a whopping 0.14oz of product. If we divide the $60 between the 8 shadows, then that puts each pan at $7.50. That’s it! $7.50 for those HUGE pans!
Stepping away from cost, let’s talk about the actual palette. There are so many things I love about this palette. I like that they decided on making the palette half matte and half shimmer. I also like that they arranged them to be all matte in one row and all shimmer in the other, instead of just randomly throwing them in there. But, if you don’t enjoy the way the shadows are set up, no worries! They’re magnetic and can be popped out and put back in however your heart sees fit! The colors that they chose are also fantastic! I love how they have some nice neutrals in there, but also threw in some pops of color!
The shadows are SO pigmented and go on nice and smoothly. With these shadows, you don’t have to worry about them not adhering to the skin, or flakiness, or patchiness. They work, and they work good!
So, if you want your own palette, it’s available for purchase now for $60 on SauceboxCosmetics.com. This is a limited edition item, so once it’s gone, it’s gone forever!
Now, let’s enjoy these beautiful swatches!
Hope you all enjoyed the swatches!
Until next time
