Studio Gear Cosmetics Review

    Welcome back fellow polish lovers. Today's post is different from any other post I've ever done before, Why you might ask? Well, thanks to Brand Backer I was given the opportunity to review Studio Gear Cosmetics new Holiday Smokey Eye palette.

*Warning this post is going to be very pic heavy*

Studio Gear Smokey Eye Palette

     This was a wonderful and scary opportunity for me. As you may have read is a previous post I don't normally wear make-up. But when the opportunity presented itself for this review I jumped on it. Specifically, because I saw that instructions for application were printed right there next to the colors.

     I really like that there's a diagram included with the instructions for novices like myself. It made the application process go smoothly. And the colors were fun to play around with. Even though I don't wear makeup except for special occasions I do own quite the collection of eyeshadow. Mostly shades of brown and a few pinks, so this was a nice addition and quite a change from my very neutral look.

      Still going with a neutral theme these colors blend together for a smokey eye look that I didn't know could create. Because I don't own any eye primer the colors weren't as vibrant on me as they would be on some but I was still happy with the look I got and can't wait to play around with this some more.

     You'll have to forgive my expressions in these photos. I wasn't completely comfortable taking pictures of my face this close up. Her is my completed look using only the colors provided on the palette. I opted for a softer smokey eye look to start out with. The blush is pinker than I would normally wear, but still a decent color for my skin tone.

     I only did one side of my face so you could see the before and after shots all at once. Not a dramatic difference but I still like the results.

     And one more angle to show the colors on my lid. I think I might go for a little heavier hand next time just to get a more dramatic look. What do you think?

  1. Its a nice little makeup palette. I really like that blush color :)

    1. It was a fun little palette to play around with. Now I just need to figure out how to do a real smokey eye. lolThanks for your comment Lisa :)

  2. I love it! :) It looks great on you with the lighter look! I think the blush looks really good too. :)

    1. Thanks. I wasnt too sure about the blush with it being so pink. The one I use now has more of an orange undertone to it but is very subtle. Now I think Im going to need to invest in a decent set of make-up brushes.
