Starry CD Eyeshadow Palette

by Vanessa Garcia,

The Starry CD eyeshadow palette features a wide array of 12 soft, pigmented colors for an amazing price of $2.99. It comes in 3 colors: “Rock N' Roll”, “Pixi”, and “Blue Magic”, and they all come with a double-ended sponge-tip applicator for easy application as well as a good-sized mirror- a one stop shop!

As you know, I love palettes because they are such a space saver and make it so much easier to carry around in your purse for any quick touch ups during the day, or when you are traveling. I was so excited to try this palette! This palette itself has a nice variety of colors to suit anyone, any outfit, or any occasion, as it has smoky, neutral, and even bright colors making it ideal for anyone to use!

The texture of these eye shadows are creamy smooth, they go on like a dream with just one swipe since they are so pigmented and you get amazing smooth color the first time. The Starry CD eyeshadow palette is definitely right up my alley because it has no outrageous shimmer or glitter, but a nice smooth satin finish, almost matte, so it is perfect for everyday wear at school or in the office. The pans are also wide enough to use your makeup brushes or the applicator that comes with it, and you get a lot of product for your penny. I like the see-through lid so that I can see all the colors and the round CD shape definitely is cute and really saves space when you store your makeup and that in itself makes it unique among other makeup or eyeshadow palettes out there.

This is truly the only thing you need to carry with you when it comes to your eye makeup and the possibilities and color combinations you can make are endless.

To make your eye shadows more vibrant in color, you can prime your lids with an eye base, or neutralize your lid with your foundation or concealer; this gives the eye shadows something to “adhere” to and in turn makes these eye shadows just pop with the perfect amount of color.
