I would like to start this post off by mentioning that I am completely unfamiliar with Trolls, but I am excited that they are bringing in some refreshing new makeup with all the launches that are because of this movie. I am also so more than thrilled that when I left Kohls today I knew that this would be my first post. Moving on. My first thought when I looked at the color range of this palette was “There is no way” however; I was pleasantly surprised. I decided that I would use the Pur Cosmetics Trolls eyeshadow palette for my first review.
I can’t say that I have tried a ton from this brand. I do recall a sparkly compact foundation that I purchased from Ulta the second I laid eyes on it, and I had a great experience every time I pulled that shiny little guy out of my purse. Find it here.
The Basics: This palette was $29.00 and I believe it to be limited edition. I purchased mine from Kohls, which from what I understand is the main retailer of this one. This palette has a good mix of mattes, shimmers, transitions, pops of color, and one surprise duochrome. The price is great for the amount of product you get (breaks down to be less than $2.00 per shadow). The only gripe I have with this is that the expiration is 6 months, but I feel that is pretty typical with shadows that are around the same formula.
The bad: There really isn’t much to complain about with this one. The only thing that could be said is that there is quite a bit of fallout, especially when it comes to the matte shades. The bright pink, Poppy, is amazing if you need a pink shadow in your life, but the downside to it is that I noticed a little bit of staining on my brush when I was swatching.
The good: There is plenty of good about this palette, and I am really happy I purchased it. I would never have had it not been for the sake on chomping at the bit to write my first review. The shadows are good, easy to blend, and pigmented. For the cost of this one, I feel like it might be a little underrated. Plus, It is different, which is welcomed to me. I feel that 2016 was a little redundant with some releases and this is a nice change.
