Olivia Palermo x Ciate Smokey Suedes Eyeshadow Palette

ciate*purchased by me

Here’s an underrated palette: Olivia Palermo x Ciate Smokey Suedes ($39). This is a limited edition palette available at Sephora and Birchbox. I purchased mine from Birchbox with my rewards points in November, so I have had this palette for awhile.

This palette is “fabric inspired” and includes 9 shades:

  • Shaken (pearl gold shimmer)
  • Glazed (pearl bronze/red shimmer)
  • Butler (matte bone)
  • Prosecco (pearl ivory shimmer)
  • Plumberry (matte aubergine)
  • Verde (pearl bright olive)
  • Whoopie Pie (matte deep brown)
  • Cocoa (pearl bronze shimmer)
  • Macchiato (matte mid-pink brown)

ciate2In just looking at the palette, they do look like suede fabric, which I think is a unique quality. And look at those colors! Isn’t this a beautiful selection of colors? The palette is pigmented, but the shimmer colors pack the most punch.

ciate3All of the shadows are very soft, but not powdery. They are very easy to blend, and it’s also easy to get deep, dramatic looks, or lighter neutral looks if that is your thing.

The swatches above are not over a primer. I wear these shadows with a primer because I wear primer daily. I also usually have makeup on for 12+ hours, and the shadows do not fade on me.

Overall, these shadows are a win in my book, and the price point is about the same as similar palettes from mid-range brands.
