Stellar Beauty Magnetic Solar Eyeshadow Palette
If I was asked for the shades I find as crucial and necessary for any palette to include these days, I would say the ones found in this palette, the STELLAR BEAUTY Magnetic Eyeshadow Palette in Solar ($42 only @ sephora.com).
Out of the 10 total shades, there’s a vanilla one, or as they describe it, a light rose pink, for all over the lid, three darker mattes for contouring and then six metallic/shimmery ones.
L to R: Sparkling Sunray Topper (gold, shimmer), Matte Buttercream (light rose pink, matte), Satin Cranberry (deep fuschia, metallic), Satin White Gold (pale gold, metallic), Satin Sun kissed Gold (true yellow gold, metallic),
L to R: Satin Burnished Gold (bronze copper, metallic), Satin Burgundy (deep rust, metallic), Matte Oak Brown (warm brown, matte), Matte Mahogany Brown (cool brown, matte), Dark Chocolate Liner (deep dark brown, matte)
And while I have some of these colors, or close to it, in other palettes, this is a more totable version of them and something I would carry in my purse.
And the colors are really buttery soft and blend well. I’ve come to realize how much more I love metallic shades than shimmer shades. They also include two, not one, small brushes to get you started or for touch ups out and about.
The only improvement I would make to this would be to have put two options for a base shade, like a more light brown and then instead of the dark brown liner, have a black instead; just a personal preference. Otherwise this is a quality palette full of colors of-the-moment.
