Review, Swatches, & Look: Studio Gear Holiday Palette

The holidays can be a great time to experiment with fun glitters and bold lips, but sometimes nothing gets the job done for a holiday look like a classic grey smoky eye. The Studio Gear Holiday Palette keeps the classics in mind with a mix of silver and charcoal, with a shimmery champagne tossed in the mix to keep things interesting. Complete with 4 eyeshadows and a blush, this palette contains a shimmery white (Frost), a shimmery silver (Platinum), a shimmery light champagne (Glimmer), and a deep gray (Coal), along with a shimmery bold peach blush (Snowy Glow). 

At first swipe, the shadows are firm and a tad bit gritty, but allow you to pick up enough product for good pigmentation. Despite not feeling super butter initially, they apply smoothly and evenly to the lid and blend with each other well. While there aren't any matte shadows in the palette - something I always want for maximum versatility - the shimmers aren't too overwhelming and there definitely aren't any huge chunks of glitter. In fact, unless I'm under a spotlight, I found that most of the shadows took on a lovely satin finish when I wore them throughout the day. The blush is fantastically pigmented and applies evenly - it's a surprisingly great warm complement to the cooler shades in the palette. Used as the instructions provided suggest, this palette creates a lovely classic look for the holidays - or any day! Check out the look I created in the picture tutorial below. 

Overall, Studio Gear's Holiday Palette is a great, simple way to pull together a look that's guaranteed to stun. It's currently on sale for $25 (from $40), but you can use code SGHOLIDAY to receive an additional 10% off!
