Studio Gear 2013 Holiday Palette Review and Look

Hey guys!
Today I bring you a review and makeup look with the Studio Gear's Holiday palette. This is the palette they released for the 2013 holiday season. 

Here is how the outer package looks. 

The palette is very sleek and slim. It also has a magnetic closure so it's super convenient for travel. 

On the inside of the palette there are instructional steps on how to achieve a smokey eye using the palette. 

Here are the eyeshadows and blush that comes in the palette. All the eyeshadows are shimmery and the blush is a typical peachy color with golden shimmers. 

Here are swatches of the eyeshadows and the blush. The colors aren't super pigmented and are a dry formula. 

I actually think the blush is the star player in this palette. The eyeshadows are ok but the blush definitely stands out and is beautiful. 

Here is the look I created with the palette. It's a really soft look and super easy to create, especially if you are new with makeup. The color was a little hard to build up, but if you're looking for a softer smokey eye look, then this is definitely the palette to use. It kind of reminds me of an icy winter smokey eye.

Here is the full face look with the shadows and blush.

Overall, this palette is okay... but to be completely honest, I wasn't too impressed. The colors were pretty dry and not very pigmented. I also wish there would have been at least one matte eyeshadow included instead of all shimmer. I did, however, love the blush. The color and pigmentation is spot on. 

Later that day I went grocery shopping at Sam's and the cashier LOVED my makeup and she said it looked like model's makeup. So, who knows! I'm sure some people out there will love this palette way more than me. You just have to try it for yourself to know for sure. 

They are currently running a special on this palette if you are interested. It is originally $40, but is on sale for $25 :) So, get it while it's on sale. 

They are also offering all my readers a 10% discount :) 
(Note: This code does not expire and is good for 10% off your entire order on
