Olivia Palermo X Ciaté London Smokey Suedes Eye Palette

Ciaté Olivia Palermo Smokey Suedes opener

 

The collaboration between socialite/model/actress Olivia Palermo and British brand Ciaté London, aims to bring an ‘it-girl’ status and style to a capsule collection of beauty products. Filled with shades that Olivia adores and has become known for, the Smokey Suedes Eye Palette has a nice mix of buttery mattes and luminous shimmer shades, with a central neutral hue, Butler, to ground them (true story: Butler was named after Olivia’s dog, Mr. Butler).

Olivia Palermo X Ciaté London Smokey Suedes Eye Palette (US $39.00) | Housed in a slim profile compact with a black faux eelskin lid and elegant gold touches via the case framing and stamped lettering, there is also an oversized mirror on the inner lid to make on-the-go touchups a breeze. The nine shades are [surprisingly] good-sized, making it easy to dip into each one without fear of cross-contamination. The 4 matte shades all have a slight sheen to them that prevents them from appearing flat upon the skin, while the other 5 all display a finely ground shimmer that helps in providing a radiance that won’t translate as excessive. The texture on all is truly silky and suede-like, seen & felt more with the mattes, and while there is some powdery kick-back when swirling brushes through them, the plus side is that I experience no fall-down whatsoever. All shades blend effortlessly, can be effortlessly built up & layered, as well as worn damp for more depth of tone and impact. Excellent staying power, especially when worn over primer.

Not sure what to expect, I can honestly say that falling hard for this palette wasn’t one of those things. But I did. Hard, I tell you. For starters, I’m all about the slim profile (easy fit into my makeup bag) and totally luxurious heft (can’t stand cheap packaging), as well as the large size of each shade. The colours of the Smokey Suedes Eye Palette are all incredibly easy to wear – regardless of skin tone – with enough shade diversity to create a variety of both day & night looks. The only downside, is that while available at Sephora, that would be only through the US website, but I’ll hopefully be able to update with more info. If not, I say we get a petition going for all us Canadian beauty fans.
