I have a really cool review for you today! An eyeshadow palette with amazing pigmentation, 12 shades AND priced under $4. Impossible you say? Meet the Technic Electric Beauty eyeshadow palette!
I actually spotted this palette on several Dutch beauty blogs. I read the words “Sleek dupe”, “amazing pigmentation” and “super cheap”. I simply had to get my hands on it! I sent my boyfriend to Bart Smit stores and he grabbed it for me. Thanks man! Seriously that guy deserves the boyfriend-of-the-year award
Bart Smit stores aren’t the only place that carry these. I had a quick look around and you can actually find this on a few online stores as well as a few UK retailers. Amazon carried it at one point but it seems to be out of stock at this time. In any case you should be able to find this if you are not located in Belgium or The Netherlands.
This is what they look like swatched! Pretty amazing right? I swatched these over my Zoeva Eyeshadow Base. The formula is on the creamier side but they break down a little when you pat your brush inside the pan. Not chalky, but not perfect either. But for under $4, who could complain really?
Here’s the eyeshadow look I created with this palette! I used the yellow on the inner corners, then the teal, blue, and purple blended in the crease. I really love how this looks! I never used to be very adventurous with colourful or bright make-up but my friend Emmie has been constantly inspiring me to go for colour. I have to say I really love it now! I was also quite impressed with the wear, I wore this eye make-up all day and it still looked stunning in the evening.
Overall this palette is a steal for just $4 / €2.99 and I could honestly recommend it to anyone that loves make-up and colour. You could even use these as eyeliners if you used them wet, something I definitely plan on wearing!
