Some time ago I published a post on this blog about a product I tend to reach for almost every time i do my makeup, the Flaming Love Palette by Makeup Addiction. I got the chance to try their latest release, the Vintage Palette, and, after some time of testing, I’m finally managing to talk about it. I really wanted to do this a bit earlier, but so many things happened and i couldn’t.
So, as the Flaming Love, the Vintage Palette contains eight individual eyeshadows with finishes ranging from matte to metallic to sparkly/glittery.
As described on their official website, the palette contains “a range of neutral warm earthy tones and metallic colours which compliment each other“.
Shades & Swatches
All the eyeshadows have a good pigmentation, some of them an outstanding one, and perform very well in terms of resistance and saturation.
These three shades have a lovely matte finish and a creamy/velvety texture. The pigmentation of this ones is great and they provide a lovely base to work with. They also compensate well the metallic and “glittery” shades.
- Custard Cream – It’s described as a “matte soft creamy beige, think yummy custard desert”. I usually dust this all over the eyes to help with the blending or on the brow bone and inner corner for a soft highlight.
- Dirty Brown – It’s described as a “matte yellow based brown, think camel“. This shade has a lovely yellow undertone, but somehow it manages to result cold undertoned, if used with cold shades, and warm undertoned, when used with warm shades, so it’s definitely very versatile. It’s perfect to define the crease and give dimension to the eyes or all over the lid and crease for a 90’s inspired look. It’s very, very similar to MAC‘s now discontinued Uninterrupted Pro Longwear eyeshadow. I believe that it’s definitely dupe and there’s actually no difference in the results! Love this! Amazing shade!
- Amber – It’s described as a “matte yellow orange, think sunset”. This is my favorite matte shade. I’m obsessed with orange shades on the crease. Obsessed. I mix this one with the warm matte shades (Flaming Kisses, Brownie and Savannah Desert) from the Flaming Love Palette to create a lovely warm gradient on the crease. So, as i may have hinted, this is definitely my favorite matte shade from the palette. When I opened the Vintage Palette for the first time, i immediately fell in love.
“Creamy Metallic” Shades
These three eyeshadows have a unique consistency, because, as i said for the matte shades, they’re creamy, but, instead of having a matte finish, they’re extremely shimmery/metallic.
Persian Rose – It’s described as a “duochrome peachy rose gold, think metallic roses”. The first time I used it, it literally blew my mind! This Continue reading
