The last two reviews weren’t so glowing, but this one will turn the vibe of this blog around.
The Skinny Dip palette is incredible! And for $40, it is not a bad price for such great quality shadows.
One swipe for most of them except for Bikini and Midnight Swim which have two. I swatched without eye shadow primer, using my finger. And they glided on, super pigmented.
I am wearing Bikini on my eyes at this very moment, and I only dipped into it once, and it’s intense on my lids. Swatching takes a bit more product vs patting it on your eyes of course, which is why Bikini looks weaker on my arm, especially next to the others. But it’s not weak, I assure you!
This palette is refreshing not only because of the intense metallic pigment, but also because it’s not freakin’ orange! Don’t get me wrong. I love my warm looks, I use warm palettes, but I have plenty of them! I do not need another one. This one leans toward olive, which is something I don’t see often. Even Tan Lines, which is the warmest, has an olive toned shift. And it’s actually pretty nice because it’s different than what I already own. Making this palette worth being in my collection.
I highly recommend picking this palette up if you are interested in ultra metallic eye shadows. They are so beautiful! I am so impressed by the quality!
The only downside for me, is that this palette is hard to photograph! Ha, that is seriously my only complaint!
And what do I think of the original Skinny Dip Lip Topper? I love it. It’s ultra moisturizing, which I greatly welcome after applying a liquid lipstick. They’re all so drying on my lips personally, so the toppers are a breath of fresh air. I also own Frost Bite, which I tend to reach for more than Skinny Dip.
