Hey Brown Girl!
Today I’m popping off Monday with my first Drug Store swatch review. The Goddess palette by Kiss Professional Ny retails for $14.99 at my local beauty supply store and is packaged in shiny black plastic casing. The colors are not named, but a nice plus is the blending brush that comes with the palette. I received this product courtesy of Octoly a few months ago, but this is not a sponsored review. All opinions are my own girl. I keep it real regardless.
Okay! So now let’s look at these swatches!
Now let me be completely honest... I have only used this palette once. Not because I disliked it, but primarily because I have so many other palettes that I like reaching for when slaying face. This didn’t quite make it to my staples list. I used this palette in combination with the Tarte tartelette in bloom palette and could create a nice look. I find that the colors in this palette compliment brown shades well. Honestly, I wish that there were more shades of brown in this palette. The fifth color from the top is a brown, but it has a greyish undertone. A warmer brown would be perfect.
My favorite color in this palette would have to be the gold (which is just below the white) and the aqua marine color (which is below the green but above the grey---10th from the top 3rd from the bottom). The olive is also a beautiful shade. The shimmers are very subtle shimmers so you would have to build them up or add glitter if you want them to be more vibrant than shown.
The staying power is pretty average for a drugstore palette and the colors are really easy to apply. I love that my brush can pick up the colors and they apply smoothly. The lighter shades do have to be build-up quite a bit, but for $14.99 there really isn’t a loss there.
Honestly, the last 5 colors are the only ones I am really feeling in this palette and maybe the peachy colors. So in essence $15 for 5 colors I am sure to use isn’t bad. That’s $3 a shadow, which is a win. Overall, I this palette is decent. I think it would be good for ladies wanting to play with colors on a budget.
