I was so happy when Honeybee Gardens sent me this palette for review and I’ve been trying to post on it for ages! I’d actually done some looks with it awhile ago and I was all set to post on it and show you all the fun looks I created with these shadows when, like a complete idiot, I deleted them off my phone without thinking. Then I had to move so it’s all been one thing after another! So, I apologize for the delay on this because I have been wanting to show it to you for awhile now and I finally did some brand new looks for it! I hope you enjoy!
I think this palette is fantastic because it has such vibrant colors for the Summer that anyone can wear and look great. The number one thing I love about this eye shadow palette is the ingredients. It includes a lot of natural ingredients in these eye shadow colors such as kaolin clay, vitamin E, roman chamomile, cucumber, and aloe. Plus, these colors are totally customizable and can be toned down or built up for eye-catching makeup looks that work well for day and night.
This palette features 4 extremely pigmented and bright colors – Velour (deep purple), Mojito (mint green), Cupcake (soft pinkish violet) and Shipwreck (deep blue). It also includes a really nice quality dual ended eye shadow brush made of bamboo which I found to be really handy to use when I was out an about.
One thing I really love about Honeybee Gardens in general is their commitment to natural beauty and this palette truly highlights that with the fact that their ingredients are natural and skin beneficial as well as being eco-friendly AND cruelty free!
A Closer Look At The Colors:
Makeup Look With Cupcake and Velour:
For this look, I’ve added a color shimmer shadow over the top as these pigmented colors are basically matte with a very subtle shimmer and for some reason, I’m all about gold lately! I’m also wearing the Eyeko eyeliner I got in my June Birchbox (see that review – here!). I wore this look for a subtle evening type makeup look as I was going to the movies with my boyfriend!
Makeup Look with Shipwreck:
See what I mean about the gold obsession?
Sorry for my crazy eye look haha. I don’t know why I’m squinting my eye so much; I think I must be trying to “aim” my eye at the camera, but that’s just ridiculous and obviously didn’t work out to well for me. Anyhow, just avoid trying to stare at my random crazy eye too long and focus on the eye shadow! LOL.
I feel like it goes really nice with those glowy dewy type looks and I’ve really enjoyed wearing it especially with the CARGO HydraBronze Powder I recently bought because it just feels really Summer-y! So this look also includes the gold because I’m just that obsessed with gold at the moment, but I also added some nude shimmer and beige colors because I’m spontaneous like that.
Makeup Look with Mojito:
So this is the last look and my favorite! It’s pretty sea and mermaid inspired and I really like the way it turned out. On the inner third of my eye, I’ve used gold shimmer shadow (of course!) and then the mojito in the center and then a deep bronze shimmer shadow on the outer third of my eye. It looks a bit strange in the photo, but in person I promise it looks very ethereal and mystic! It’s a really pretty look, though I didn’t actually wear it anywhere. I just sort of played around with it a bit and had some fun. I think this would work well for something theatrical like a Halloween costume look or a fairy whimsical look. I feel like it totally embodies Summer though and I hope you like it!
I really love this eye shadow palette and I’ve been using it a lot for creating fun looks for when I’m out and about on the weekends. Honeybee Gardens carries a number of other equally lovely shadow palettes and they’re all very affordable and have really cute themes for each season and every look. If you’re not too deep into makeup, they also carry a number of awesome skincare, body care and even a men’s line of products!
