Highlight your eyes for holiday soirees and beyond with this must-have palette of 24 neutral eye shadows in matte and shimmer textures, a trial-sized version of her renowned Eye on Neutral palettes. Add subtle shine to your favorite holiday look with the metallic shades of bronze, gold and gunmetal, or keep it simple with classic matte taupe, chocolate and charcoal shadows.
Sonia Kashuk has released a limited edition eye palette called the Eye On Neutral Matte/Shimmer Eye Palette, which includes a total of 24 shades–half matte and half shimmery.
This palette comes in a cream-colored, plastic palette that snaps closed and contains a full-sized mirror inside. This palette is much smaller than it looks online–only about 4 by 3 inches.
This palette contains a great mixture of neutral shadows–both matte and shimmery, light and dark.
But the formula for these shadows is inconsistent. The frosty shades are incredibly buttery and apply smoothly with great pigmentation. The shimmery shades are also fairly soft and smooth on the skin. But the matte shades are almost all stiff in formula. They require extra layering and blending to get the color to show up in a smooth manner.
Ease of Use: 8.5/10
You won’t have any trouble with the frosty or shimmery shades, but the matte shades require more work.
For about $30 you get 24 shades for a total of 0.51 ounces (14.5 grams) of shadow. This is a very generous serving of product for the price point.
