My love for eyeshadow palettes made me buy a LOT of them over the years (I’m a self-proclaimed eyeshadow palette addict!). I have seen them all: the good, the bad and dare I say, the ugly. During my regular visit to my local drugstore, I was smitten at first glance; my “neutral-color-self” was in awe of the Blinc Shadow Fusion eyeshadow palette which combines warm and cooler tones (Trust me this is so rare!). Without ever having tried them myself, I herd of the brand Blinc watching my favorite Youtubers raving about their mascaras, but an eyeshadow palette was a total surprise. I (oops! BeardMan bought it) for our 4 year anniversary💗. What can I say, I had to try it. Curiosity got the best of me and I guess I kept giving not so subtle hints to my boyfriend !!! (*smiling a lot right now*).
Here it is, in all her splendour. Are you sitting my beauties, because I’m about to let you in on a little secret: this beauty makes it in my lifetime top 5 favorite palettes! Why? Just keep on reading …
From the Website :
blinc shadow fusion combines the best attributes of liquid, gel, powder and cream shadows into one Life Proof formula that delivers 9 benefits in 1 product. Our innovative blend provides a luxurious shadow that glides on smooth, blends seamlessly and offers a velvety, highly pigmented finish that doesn’t fade, crease or smudge. Anti-aging ingredients treat the skin while filling in existing fine lines for silky smooth coverage. Only when you are ready, remove blinc shadow fusion with any gentle makeup remover.
*Each Palette comes packaged with a professional quality shade and blend duo brush.
What’s not to love :
♥10 Neutral shades that make it so easy to achieve the most gorgeous daytime to night time looks (if only I had some nightlife, but we are not talking about me 😉)
♥ Probably one of best brush ever included in a palette. This Shade & Blend duo brush is made to use not just for show (We all know that the brushes or worst sponges included in palettes are historically not of the best quality!)
♥ Vegan, Cruelty-Free and Doesn’t contain gluten! (Cruelty-Free should be a law!!!)
♥ Sturdy plastique-type packaging with a huge inside mirror. It’s bulkier than the usual (let’s say Chocolate Bar) palette but heck! it give it an edge, a uniqueness! (Probably not the best/slickiest for travelling!)
♥ The formula is impeccable!! The only 2 reviews I have found talked about chalkiness of certain shades which I completely disagree. All 10 are so smooth and easy to blend! Perfection if you ask me!!!
♥ Doesn’t crease & fade at all!
♥They are not overly pigmented meaning you don’t have to blend for hours (like always I’m exaggerating a tiny bit!)
♥ Very nice magnetic cover!
The NOT so good :
♥ Nothing ! Nada! Yes! it’s a bigger palette but it really doesn’t bother me.
Shades & Swatches
It’s so sad that this palette was launched at the same time as a lot of other good neutral eyeshadow palettes. Where I find a real distinction between products is in the shades you have: your warms, your cools, your shimmers (I said shimmer, not glitter!). This palette is neutral but not in a boring way and the texture is so buttery. Desert Island status?!! You bet. Reasonably priced?!! Totally for the amount of shadows you get. It even gets me mad 😡 to see this kind of quality randomly laying at my local drugstore on top of the cheap perfume section (totally true!)!! What a shame that this one-of-a-kind eyeshadow palette is so underrated (or even, totally unknown!). I hope that Blinc will be coming soon with their second palette 🙂
Note: This was not a first impression, I had this palette for more than 2 months!!! As always this is 100 % my personal opinion and like I always say, feel free to agree or disagree.
Pricing: Sold in store for 54.95$CND (The weekend BeardMan bought it, there was a 10$ off, on purchases of 50$ cosmetics).
Availability: The Blinc website. To my knowledge in Quebec at Brunet & Familiprix pharmacies. I recently wrote the company for other store availabilities but I have yet to receive an answer back.
Thanks for stopping by my Beauties
