Hello children! How is everyone doing? No, I really want to know! I've been so busy, barely any time for you guys or le old blog! I had my first makeup photo shoot, last week and we had to create a glamorous neutral look and my model looked AMAZING! And it was mostly thanks to the eye shadow palette I'm going to review today.
The palette is by a Taiwanese brand called Solone and was sent to me by KKCenterHk for review!
Thank you once again KKCenterHk! ^_^
$18.30 for 14g.
Solone's eye shadow palette comes in a pretty black and pink cardboard box. The palette itself has a glossy black finish and holographic lettering, I find it quite hypnotic! Lol! The glossiness of the case makes for a lot of finger prints though!
The palette houses 10 eye shadows in an array of beautiful shades although, like the name suggests, most of the shades fall under the gold or green category.
The package reminds me of a smaller version of the Sleek i-Divines. Just 2 colours short and with square shadows. Both have a similar mirror and sponge tip applicator.
I love that it is small and convenient to carry!
Colours and Swatches:
There are ten colours in all, all frosty and shimmery. That is a small complaint I have with this palette, that there are no matte shades, although all the shades are beautiful, well pigmented and silky soft. The shimmer is not chunky at all.
Pale gold- Love this for highlighting
Coral/ Gold duo chrome- A fave of mine, looks a lot like Expensive Pink by MAC
Turquoise- A beautiful gold/ blue duo chrome
Purple- A metallic purple/ silver colour
Navy blue- One of the disappointing shades, as compared to the others. Usable but it's a bit chalky.
Mint- Yay! A mint eyeshadow! I've always wanted one! Lol! Looks silver in the swatch though. >.<
Gold- A nice, proper gold! Lovely, especially for bridal or Indian looks.
Green- Olive/ gold colour, another great Indian look colour.
Silver- Not a fan of silver shadow but an amazingly pigmented shadow.
Gunmetal Grey- I wish this was a black. :( I would love a shimmery black! Weak like the navy blue.
So save the last two shades, all of these colours are great! Together they make a versatile palette, from everyday shades, bridal colours, to smokey party colours, this is a very usable palette that can be travelled with!
On my Eyes:
Sorry about my horribly messy brows!

Even though the price is a bit steep, I would recommend this palette, it has lovely colours that actually deliver!
They have many more you can choose from too, from single shadows to palettes with 100s of colours! ^_^
Thanks for reading!
Sample sent for consideration. My review and opinion is honest and my own.
