CLINIQUE | Very Honey Holiday Palette | $44CAD
Holiday makeup palettes come and go but this pretty find from Sephora x Clinique has been one of my favourite purchases in the last month or two. Named after their best selling black honey range, this compact is housed in a sturdy padded case with a purse like click closure and includes 13 multi-sized eye shadows along with brush applicators. I want to say that there must be some reason for the different sizing corresponding with the colours themselves but I haven’t cracked that code yet.
I love that this is a mid-tone shade selection so you can choose to wear it lighter or darker depending on the occasion so it gives me plenty of options even when I wear this all week. The overall look lean towards the cooler, mauvey taupe end of things and the shadow finishes range from satin and soft metallics to mattes. One to two of the mattes feel a little dry to the touch but it doesn’t seem to affect the colour payoff. If you’re looking for your shadow to slay the world then this is not for you. But if you like Clinique for their approachability and office friendly options, Very Honey Holiday would make a lovely everyday grab ‘n go kit when you don’t want to be fumbling through your drawers or even a gift for someone starting out with eye makeup.
I will see if I can muster up a makeup look to show you this in action before the holidays end but as this is a limited edition item, I say grab this while you can!
