Name: Color Boulevard Eyeshadow in Honolulu Dance
From the packaging:
5 colors for the perfect city-look. Silky soft and longlasting.
What I liked:
– colors go well together
– colors are easy to blend
– sheer, buildable coverage
– the price
What I didn’t like:
– colors may be too sheer for some people
– eyeshadows need a primer to last all day
– texture is not very soft
– the packaging
If you love purples but are scared of looking like you’ve just been punched in the face if you wear them, P2 Color Boulevard Eyeshadow in Honolulu Dance may just be what you need. It includes 5 shades, two soft pinks and three purples, all of which are very wearable and soft and with a slight sheen finish. And the best part is that it retails at only €2,95!
While I do think that P2 Color Boulevard Eyeshadow in Honolulu Dance is a really lovely palette, especially for makeup newbies, and that it is good value for money, you also get what you paid for. The colors are on the sheer side, which is good for those that are scared of color and just want a soft wash of it on their lids, and look elegant and easily wearable.
If you want a more intense color payoff, you will have to use a base underneath, but as you can see in the look above, these colors are soft, so if you’re looking for bright shades these aren’t for you. I love wearing them when I want something feminine, romantic and subtle and, even though the texture isn’t really that soft they also blend easily with very minimal fallout.
Although they are easy to blend, they’re not too easy to apply because each stripe of color, although separated by the others by a clear plastic thingie, is really small. Too small for any eyeshadow brush so you may accidentally but easily pick up more than one shade if you’re not careful. Once applied though, they do last all day provided that you use a good eyeshadow primer underneath. Without, you’re only getting a few hours of wear.
