Dose Of Colors EyesCream Palette Review & Swatches
Monday, August 29, 2016
When Dose Of Colors announced the beginning of the year, that they were coming out with an ice cream themed eye-shadow palette for Summer, I knew I had to have it! I'm a makeup lover & collector! How cute is an ice cream theme? Well Summer moved along and there was no sign of this palette, until a couple of weeks ago. I guess better late than never :S Dose Of Colors even provided swatches of their EyesCream palette on their instagram page. The colors looked lovely! So I ordered and received it. What are my thoughts? It's SUPER CUTE! What's not to love? The palette has a cute ice cream parlor theme! Polka dots & colorful ice cream cones grace the cover. The box that the palette came in was gorgeous! It was pink & green (definitely a keepsake) and upon opening the box, it said "Treat Yourself, You Deserve It". The palette was wrapped in Dose of Colors tissue paper and the cutest ice cream cone w/sprinkles sticker topped it off. So, how did the eye-shadows perform? When I first swatched the palette, two of the shades (see my pictures below) were not very pigmented and chalky (Berries N Cream and Lavender Honey). I was a little underwhelmed. Even using MAC Fix + I couldn't get Lavender Honey to be more pigmented like in the Dose of Colors instagram picture. But the other eight shades were GORGEOUS! They were beautifully pigmented and the metallics definitely razzled & dazzled me! I looked at a couple of YouTube reviews and a couple mentioned that the mattes (particularly the one's I had trouble with) performed better on the eyes than swatched on the hand. So I tried it and they were right! Berries N Cream & Lavender Honey looked way better on the eyes! So I'm glad that issue was resolved! The only other products I've tried from Dose Of Colors were their Dare to Dazzle lip collection. I LOVED THEM! For me, I'm happy! I love all 10 shades. This will be a nice addition to any makeup collectors collection! This palette is still available.
