Good afternoon! I hope your day so far is treating you right.

This afternoon, I have for you a review of the Studio Gear Holiday makeup palette. It comes  in this nice little sleeve:

I followed the instructions almost exactly (I didn’t want to create too much of a smoky eye). I found the instructions easy to follow.

I liked this palette – the colors went great together, and I think they’ll be nice to use on their own as well. The blush is really pigmented, so you definitely need a light hand with that. The eyeshadows seemed a bit powdery, so an eyelid primer was definitely needed. For pale-skinned people like me (holla!), the “glimmer” shade which SGC states you can use for a highlighter – no, you can’t. It will be too dark; perhaps on darker or tanner people that would be possible. Since I used a primer, the shadows stayed put all day long.

    • I was a little out of my comfort zone since I didn’t apply eyeliner. haha! The best decision I ever made was buying a bunch of cheap e.l.f. brushes to try out different ways of applying eyeshadow. Give it a shot! 🙂
