Honeybee Gardens Cosmopolitan Palette

Honeybee Gardens Cosmopolitan Palette

The Product

Honeybee Gardens features cosmetics made without parabens, FD&C colors and petrochemicals.  The Cosmopolitan Palette features four neutral shades that can take you from day to night.  Kashmir is a smooth matte brown, Satin Sheets is a gorgeous sparkly gold, PS Pink is a matte medium pink, and Angelic is a stunning sparkly pale pink.  

The Function

This palette has beautiful combination of sparkle and matte finishes which will allows you to create a multitude of looks.  Satin Sheets and Angelic provide intense shimmer that can be used as inner corner highlights or all over the lid to instantly brighten your eyes.  I also use these on my inner lower lash line to intensify my looks.  The shimmer remained from morning until I was ready to wash my makeup off at night.  The staying power of these shadows is phenomenal!  

Kashmir is just as smooth as the name implies.  This rich brown is perfect as a liner, used in the outer corner or in the crease to provide depth.  If you are in a pinch and have dark hair, you could also use this as a brow powder!  PS Pink is another versatile shade which is also incredibly creamy and pigmented.  It compliments Angelic beautifully when blended in the crease.  It can also double as a blush!  

The Style

This palette is very unique.  It is recyclable, lightweight and features a magnetic closure.  I have never had a palette with this type of packaging before.  You can literally open the sides of it like a box and see they layers that make up the structure of it.  Very interesting!  That being said I would not necessarily pile things on top of it, as it is not your typical plastic/rigid palette packaging.  It also comes with a two-sided applicator.  One side is a sponge tip and the other is a brush.  I do not typically use the applicators that come included with palettes but I appreciate the fact that this palette features two different choices.

The Bottom Line

This is the first product from Honeybee Gardens I have tried and I have to say I am very impressed!  I think many times when people think of "natural" or "eco-friendly" products they think of something that isn't as good or effective.  That is not the case here as these shadows are amazing quality and have quickly become a favorite of mine.  This brand is carried on though I have never seen it in my local Ulta store.  I have seen these products for buy one get one half off on their site so I highly recommend taking advantage of that deal if you like the look of this stunning palette!  They also make a variety of other cosmetics including eyeshadow singles and a palette you can customize to your liking.
