Karity ‘Picante’ Palette ($19.99)
The Picante palette from Karity officially drops today, November 1st! It’s $19.99 or $18 if you use an affiliate code to save 10%. Ours is BEAUTYCULT. Fun fact- Karity has developed an initiative called Palettes for Paws with their local SPCA centers. For every palette they sell, they donate a meal to an animal in need. I like dogs much better than I like humans so I really appreciate that they’ve taken the time and effort to develop a program like this.
I’ve used the palette a few times and I like it but it’s a big palette so I’ll need to use it a few more times, if you all are interested in a proper review. In the meantime, I just wanted to give you a brief run down of the shades and my thoughts on the formula. The color scheme reminds me of a few different palettes. The top row gives me Juvia’s place Warrior palette vibes.
The middle row reminds me of the MUG Pumpkin Spice palette.
And the bottom row is kinda similar to the Coloured Raine Queen of Hearts palette.
Not saying that there’s any dupes per say but the color stories are at least somewhat similar. The palette is cruelty free and formulated without mineral oil or parabens but it’s not vegan. And as you’ve probably guessed, considering that it’s a 21 pan palette for $18, it was made in China.
Delia is a matte peach
Fearless is a pale peachy gold
Dune is mustardy yellow matte
Embers is a bright yellow gold
Pimento is a light yellow orange matte
Bronzed is a light orangey copper with a metallic finish
Mornin’ is a brassy gold metallic
Sunrise is an amber gold metallic
Bobbie is a light to medium orange matte
Fuego is a light peachy pink with gold reflects
Harvest is a medium red orange matte
Hayley is a foiled reddish copper
Flamenco is a bright tomato red with a matte finish
Fahrenheit is a warm metallic cranberry
Spicy is a medium matte red. Flamenco is more orange in comparison
Passion is a cranberry metallic but it’s a bit darker and more purple than Fahrenheit which pulls more orange in comparison
Epice is a mid-toned berry matte with pink undertones
Sass is a pinky lavender with a foiled finish
Floral is a mid-toned metallic plum
Aish is a medium orange brown with pink undertones
Bittersweet is a medium dark red brown matte
Overall it’s a very pretty palette with no real issues as far as performance (at least I haven’t come across any so far) but there’s one major problem for me. Almost all of the mattes are the same depth. Meaning there’s a ton of transition colors and hardly anything add definition or to highlight. Bittersweet is the darkest shade and it can be used to deepen up the crease a bit but it’s not enough for my liking. This isn’t a dealbreaker per say and I’m not someone who puts a huge emphasis on being able to create a look using only one palette. But the color scheme would’ve been a home run for me had they included a dark burgundy or plum and a dark brown. A cream or ivory matte would’ve been nice too but I could live without it. Again that’s just my personal preference.
