So many eyeshadow palettes, so little time, but today I have The Beauty Crop Espresso Yourself Eyeshadow Palette review for you. They are a relatively smaller brand, ( Oh you know, they’re just on Birchbox, BoxyCharm and featured by YouTube Influencers like KathleenLights and EleventhGorgeous but NBD! ) but if you have been on Instagram a lot, you can definitely see them featured quite a bit. This weekend was so hectic, I mean, I am sure all of you also were out trying to find the best deals. It’s not over yet as today and tomorrow, we also have Cyber Monday Deals, which is exciting !
The Beauty Crop brand aesthetics are beyond adorable. The packaging is the most fun packaging I have seen in a while, yet it is not too childish or girly. I know that their Liquid Lipsticks are called “Girl Power”, how brilliant is that ? They are also cruelty free.
The Espresso Yourself palette (29.90$) is made of sturdy cardboard, I think. It has a decent sized mirror inside, so win ! It’s exterior is beyond cute. But you open it up and there is a beautiful array of neutrals, both shimmer and matte. A total of 21(!) eyeshadows !
From their website:
An essential palette of 21 shades ranging from delicious browns, neutrals to plum, formulated with coffee extract. Rich-textured and highly pigmented mattes and shimmers.
Inspired by our favourite hug in a mug, we created a delicious collection of wearable eye shadows formulated with coffee extract. Rich in caffeine and antioxidants, coffee extract reduces puffiness and dark circles around the eyes while its antioxidants brightens and tightens the skin. The coffee inspired collection of twenty one highly-pigmented shades are universally flattering and come in both matte and shimmer finishes to create an array of looks from day-time chic to sultry and smoky.
With Coffee Extract
With Coconut & Shea Butter
No Mineral Oils
I love the word play of the palette name, and the names of the eyeshadows themselves are SO lovely. I find that the shades are truly stunning, with lighter neutrals to sultry, darker red warm neutrals which are so in at the moment. The packaging, though cute, is still cardboard so I would probably not cary this around in my bag, but otherwise, these eyeshadow blend beautifully and stay on well on my eyelids. I love my shimmer shadows, and these shimmer eyeshadows are STUNNING ! But the mattes are truly what impressed me, they are not chalky. They are soft and buildable, so you can keep adding more pigmentation as you go, and not really go from 0 to smoky in 2 seconds, in the crease ! *Excuse my tan, hairy, dry arm swatches*
