Hi guys, gals, and non-binary pals!
Models Own recently launched in Priceline and since then, I’ve been looking for an excuse to pick up more makeup that I definitely don’t need but desperately want. Then, like a sign from the heavens, Priceline dropped a 50% off cosmetics sale and I felt that it was definitely my time to purchase one of the palettes that I’d been after, the Supernatural palette! The deeper, more mysterious shades really attracted me and the formula of the shadows seemed really nice so I just had to pick it up! Today, I’m going to be sharing my thoughts and feelings on the palette, as well as some of the looks that I’ve created with it!
The Supernatural Eyeshadow Palette retails for $29.99 and contains 10 shadows, a double ended brush and a mirror. It is made in China but the brand is cruelty-free. The packaging on this product is really something! I love the cardboard packaging design, I think it really suits the theme of the palette.
The palette has three matte shades and seven shimmer shades, which is not my preferred balance of finish but I’ve stepped out of my regular application rut to try and use this palette on it’s own a lot and I’ve found I’ve been able to use it really successfully, despite the lack of matte shades. In the matte shades, we have Mythical (medium brown), Mystic (buttery beige), and Phantom (earthy grey).
The packaging of the palette itself is quite understated and cute. I love the holographic print of the logo and name of the palette on a white background. I do wish though that the packaging matched the outer box because the box is perfect. The other powder palettes also have this same packaging so it can be hard to distinguish which one you’re picking out if you have a few of them. I know having two or three Sleek palettes posed a problem for me in the past so I can imagine it would be similar for this palette.
As you can see, the inside of this palette is just stunning. The shimmers are definitely more on the foiled side, making any eye look that you create look extra glam and beautiful. I love the range of colours as well and how they all work together. The only one I might have changed was (phenomenon and eternal?) because they have the slightest undertone difference and look virtually the same on the eye but other than that, I love the shades that have been chosen.
The shadows themselves have a creamy feeling to them that makes them feel quite luxe. Every shade is richly pigmented. There isn’t a single shade that lacks pigmentation in this palette. All of them blend out really beautifully. I think I’ve had the easiest time ever creating looks with this palette because it is so easy to blend out.
What I love most about the palette is that the foiled shades don’t just work as foiled shadows, they can also be blended to really easily mimic matte shadows because they’re so richly pigmented. A few times I dipped into Curse to deepen up my crease and it worked so well. It didn’t leave me with a shimmery crease at all. I’m also a really big fan of using the foils on my lower lashline for a pop of colour.
I would definitely recommend picking up this palette if you’re in the market for a new one or you’re looking to pick one up as a present. I think the quality is excellent and it is definitely one of my favourite purchases of late!
