Today I’ll be showing you another palette by the brand Technic. Remember that bright palette I spoke about not too long ago? When I was browsing the web for more info on Technic, I stumbled upon the site Blush Cosmetics. They sell many great budget cosmetics as well as a few products from Technic. Since I loved that bright palette so much I was dying to try more from this brand. Blush Cosmetics kindly allowed me to try the 12 eyeshadows Fashionista palette!
It holds 12 neutral shades ranging from blue to purple to gunmetal and browns. It comes with two double sided foam applicators. I used these to swatch the shades on my arm.
I think the first thing that’s quite obvious about this palette is that it looks a lot like the Urban Decay Naked palette! This is why I made a handy side-by-side comparison for you. As you can see the Technic palette is slightly larger. The shadow pans are larger too, they hold 1.85g per pan, and the Naked palette holds 1.3g per pan. Much like the Naked Palette, the Technic palette is a mix of shimmers and mattes but the colours are somewhat different.
These are the swatches I made on my arm. As you can see all shades are nice and pigmented! I only had trouble with two shades, the light blue (second from the left) and nude shade (eighth from the left) were less pigmented but the others had great colour pay off. Especially the two last shades were nice and creamy.
This is the eye look I created with the shadows! I went with a very subtle and simple look I would wear during the day. I used the third and fourth colour from the left. The purple has an amazing shimmer to it, it has subtle hints of blue, orange and purple shimmer. Really stunning!
You can buy this palette from the Blush Cosmetics website for just £3.99 (about €5 and $6.40). I highly recommend you take a look at their site, they have an awesome range of products, all very budget friendly! Since they are based in the UK the shipping is very reasonable to Europe as well. They don’t just sell make-up, they also offer nail polishes, skin care, tanning products and more!
