How good is Carter Beauty?
Marissa Carter’s new beauty brand “Carter Beauty Cosmetics” has been all over social media in the past few months! So I decided to test out the products to see what all the hype was about.
The brand launched a few months ago with an astonishing 103 products! How crazy is that!? I’m also delighted to report that the brand is cruelty-free and it’s PETA approved. The first product I tried out was the “Warm Velvet” 18 shade eyeshadow palette. Carter beauty has 3 palettes, but I just loved the shades in this specific palette. The first thing I noticed about the palette was the packaging, I do love the purple and baby pink colours, but the downside to the palette was that it doesn’t have a mirror.
This palette has beautiful shades that are absolutely perfect for Autumn/Winter, and it really reminds me of the Anastasia Beverly Hills modern renaissance palette. This palette contains 9 shimmers and 9 matte shades.
I tested this palette out for quite a few days, and I must admit, I am very impressed with it. The staying power is brilliant, my eyeshadow lasted all day, so there is absolutely no need to wear an eyeshadow primer. The shades overall are quite pigmented, and super easy to blend! The shades in the palette also look beautiful on blue/green eyes! I really like how versatile the palette is, you can go for a night out look, or keep it natural for daytime wear.
Overall, I am pleased with the palette and will be reaching for it quite a lot in the coming months. For €14.95, I think the palette is very affordable and totally worth the money!
Carter beauty is available in pharmacies across the country and I definitely recommend checking out the range! I will share my thoughts on the concealer in another post coming soon!
