Summer is upon us, and so are the stunning trends of colourful eye shadow, rich pigments, and radiant highlighters. Luckily for us makeup lovers, BPerfect released a new eye shadow palette in July that caters to all of our summer makeup needs and obsessions, and it is at a perfect price as well.
BPerfect is a versatile and innovative beauty brand that was created in 2013 by Brendan McDowell, and it is currently based in Belfast. Throughout the past five years they have slowly released various products that have turned into makeup-must-haves and national favourites such as their 10-minute tan, LMD palette and now their carnival palette.
The carnival palette does exactly what it says on the tin. It is a perfectly curated palette consisting of 24 stunningly bright, unique, pigmented and blend-able shades, as well as two beautiful highlighters.
Firstly, let’s talk about the build of the palette. This palette costs £40, so it isn’t exactly the cheapest option on the market, and when I spend that amount of money on a palette I like to feel as though it’s quality and will be able to travel with it. The palette itself is durable, thick and definitely on the heavier side… at least twice the weight and width of the Jeffree Star Androgyny palette.
This palette has 17 matte shades, 7 high-pigment shimmers, and 2 highlighters, as well as a good quality mirror and relatively large pan sizes. There is a good variety of shades ranging from cooler tones, warmer tones and obviously the stunningly bright shades.
Sometimes when you’re working with bright shades they can be a little chalky, hard to blend and they can come together in a bit of a mess. However, each shade is loud and vibrant in its own right, yet they don’t overpower each other. Each shade seems to be individually pressed, and so the quality across the palette is very similar with regards to blendability, pigment and staying-power.
You can do virtually any look from this palette thanks to the variety of shades, and they last all day on your eye without a primer.
Overall, I think that this eye shadow palette is a must-have, and it is probably my favourite palette that I have ever owned. It is more than value for money, especially since each shade works out at £1.7… how could you possibly say no?
