The packaging of the Bronzing Palette by Beauty UK brand is nothing special. To me it’s actually boring, but you can’t really expect a fancy packaging from a low priced palette, right? Another problem I have with the packaging is, it’s very hard to open. I don’t know what’s the problem (it’s probably me), but I can’t open it with my fingers. I always use some object (tweezers or something like that) to help open it. A huge plus is a huge mirror inside. I really love the huge mirror! It’s actually useful. In the second photo above you can see the back of the packaging. The nice thing is, it has a “map” of the products that are inside.
Let’s take a closer look what’s inside the palette.
It looks nice, doesn’t it? Unfortunately the color payoff isn’t very good. Here are the not-very-good swatches. All swatches are over a shimmery eyeshadow base by Art Deco.
As you can see, the eyeshadows are a bit sheer. Please have in mind, that’s the most I could get from the eyeshadows. I packed them on my skin. I was disappointed about the color payoff. BUT I think it’s a nice palette anyway. I know it’s hard to believe from the swatches above, but if you look at the collage below, you’ll see that the palette isn’t useless. On the contrary, if you are looking for a affordable nude/bronzing palette, maybe this Bronzing palette would be perfect for you. There’s only one more thing to consider before buying this palette. There are almost only warm colors in it, so it’s more appropriate for warm skin tones.
To make it up to you for the not-very-good swatches, here is a collage of before and after photos. In the before photo I’m wearing only my foundation. In the after photos I’m using only the products from the Bronzing palette (and my regular mascara).
Although the packaging isn’t perfect and despite my first disappointment, I’m actually liking the palette. It’s a good on the go palette for a good price. It’s very nice for the summer, when you just want to enhance your beauty with a hint of shimmer and nude colors. The low price is a plus too.
What do you think about the palette? Do you think it’s useful?
