Westmore Beauty Limited Edition Hollywood Eyecons Eyeshadow Palette | $44
Say HELLO to the perfect palette! Hollywood Eyecons contains eight beautiful shades with the flexibility of going day to night, natural to dramatic to smokey eye, all in one gorgeous gold package.
Westmore Beauty used exclusive Soft Touch Powder Technology to create a shadow set that’s luxuriously soft, has dramatic color payoff, and the staying power of an all day, long wear liquid makeup! This ultra-luxurious texture feels like a cream-powder and can even be used as a liner without having to wet it.
In this palette, you get eight eyeshadows, each containing 0.05 oz of product. Here’s a run down of the gorgeous shades.
- Girl Next Door: light pinkish beige shade, matte finish
- Natural Beauty: warm mauve shade, matte finish
- Film Star: warm peach shade, shimmer finish
- Leading Lady: darker, cool, taupe shade, gold sparkle finish
- Scene Stealer: pale peach shade, matte finish
- Seductress: warm soft brown, matte finish
- Bombshell: warm copper shade, metallic finish
- Glamorous: deep, coppery bronze, shimmer finish
- Plus a dual-sided eyeshadow brush!
Here are some swatches of the eyeshadows.
As you can see, the shadows are extremely pigmented
. Some of the mattes swatch a little softer on the skin but when applied to the eye, the pigment can be built up quite nicely. This palette is perfect for someone who loves their everyday neutral eyeshadows but wants the necessary colors on hand to create a deeper look for nights out on the town. The palette is quite versatile as well because you can get a more neutral look, or a cooler, plum-toned look.
The brush that is included with the palette is quite nice as well. You get a flat eyeshadow brush
on one end and a pencil brush
on the other end. The pencil brush is perfect for applying eyeshadow to the inner corner, lower lash line, or smudging out shades along the upper lash line. The flat eyeshadow brush is great for packing color onto the lid.
Another cute feature of this palette is the fact that it is totally reminiscent of Hollywood
! You get two mirrors on each side of the palette and little faux “lights” on the top and bottom of the mirrors. I tried to get a nice picture of this myself but it wasn’t working out very well because of the glare on the mirrors. The mirrors are practical to use to apply your makeup, which makes this palette perfect for travel too
. (I specifically mean it doesn’t look like the fun house mirrors that some palettes include!)
With this palette, I am able to get a variety of neutral eyeshadow looks and I can incorporate the plummy shades to add a more neutral pop of color. Leading Lady and Glamorous are perfect shades to rock as a smokey eye. I particularly love using Film Star on the inner corner. Scene Stealer, Seductress, and Girl Next Door are all great blending/transition shades while Natural Beauty is right there for you to use to deepen up the crease or smoke out the lash lines. Bombshell is the perfect lid shade, too.
It can be hard to find an eyeshadow palette where you will get good use out of all of the shades within the palette. If you’re a true fan of neutrals, I think this palette is perfect for you. There was little to no fall out while applying the eyeshadows and they truly do feel like a “cream to powder” finish. This palette would great for beginners or experts alike.
