I just got these palettes a few days ago so I’m not ready to do a review yet but I wanted to get swatches up awhile since this collection has garnered a lot of attention. We’ve been Ace affiliates for over a year now and we love working with them. Check out my review of their Quintessential palette. I’m blown away by this collection and I think that you guys will be too!
Palette #1: Paradise Fallen
I’m starting with the purple palette because it garnered the most interest on my instagram. Paradise Fallen has 8 mattes and 4 shimmers. Each pan is .056oz/ 1.6g. I’ve heard a lot of people say that this is what they wished the Norvina palette looked like. So far I’m super impressed with this palette! Purples are notoriously difficult to formula and these are excellent!
Pure is a light matte gray
Moon Glow is a silvery platinum with a foiled finish.
Stone is a dark matte gray
Orion is a pink champagne with a foiled finish
Vine is a mid-toned neutral brown
Cypress Tree is a deep red brown
Shadow is a matte navy blue
Twilight is a bright, metallic violet
Eve is a matte royal blue
Night Sky is a metallic amethyst
Dusk is a deep matte mulberry (and my favorite shade in the palette)
Black Out is a matte black
Palette #2: Classical Paradise
So far Classical Paradise is my personal favorite. It has 7 mattes and 5 shimmers and a bunch of shades that are very similar to the Gemini palette. I’m going to review each palette individually but I’ve used this one the most so far and its heavenly. The mattes are creamy with minimal fall out and they’re very easy to blend. The shimmers are also lovely. That copper… I die! Sunflower wasn’t as pigmented as the rest though.
Rye is a warm ochre matte
Barley is a pearly white with a foiled finish
Sunflower is light greenish yellow with a metallic finish
Maize is a matte mustard
Golden Apple is the most perfect grungy olive matte ever. I’d buy the palette for that shade alone
Hay is a peachy champagne with a foiled finish
Vegetation is a matte red orange. Think Nars Persia
Earth is a deep red brown
Harvest is a foiled copper
Clay is a muted red with a matte finish
Mineral is a foiled taupe
Soil is a burgundy matte
Palette #3: Blossom Passion
And zee pinky red palette! This one has 8 mattes and 4 shimmers.
Gardenia is a matte peach
Peony is a foiled peachy pink. It performs beautifully but my swatch looks a little bumpy because the brush I used was still damp. Dummy.
Dahlia is a matte rosewood. I love this color.
Carnation is a bright coral matte
Orchid is a foiled strawberry pink
Red Rose is a vivid, matte scarlet
Eros is a metallic, rosey pink
Love is a bright pink matte
Beauty is a magenta satin
Lust is a deep wine colored matte
Seduction is a blackened burgundy. I don’t think I have another color like this and I love it
Desire is a matte crimson. It’s more pink than Red Rose
Palette #4: Slice of Paradise
Last but not least the rainbow palette with 10 mattes and 2 shimmers! I haven’t used this one on my eyes yet but I had to layer a few of the shades several times to reach this level of opacity. I think it was the yellow, pink and red violet. But again this isn’t a review and I don’t think swatches are indicative of performance. Just putting it out there in the interest of full disclosure.
Daffodil is a bright yellow matte
Persimmon is a matte yellow orange. It’s like a brighter version of MUG Chickadee
Passion Fruit is a bright red orange
Flamingo is a matte salmon pink
Rosefinch is a matte hot pink
Starling is a bright red violet
Peacock is a metallic orchid. I don’t think that I own anything else like it
Honeyberry is a true purple matte
Macaw is a matte cobalt
Bluebell is a sky blue matte
Fruit Dove is a foiled teal
Kiwi is a vivid kelly green
As I mentioned previously, I’m going to review each palette individually after I’ve had more time to use them. But there’s a few things that I really like about the collection. Number one, I love that all of the palettes are mostly matte. Shimmers are much easier to formulate so I thought it was a bold move on the brand’s part to focus on creating quality mattes. Especially since colorful mattes like these are so tricky. I also like that there’s no repeats in any of the four palettes and that they didn’t feel the need to include basic shades in each palette. Most brands seem to feel like no palette is complete without a highlight shade and a black but most of us have dozens of those shades and we don’t need to have them duplicated in every palette that we own.
