I love going to makeup trade shows because I get introduced to so many brands that I would have never seen before. During The Makeup Show NYC I got to try some makeup products from Alcone at Home. They sell different sized magnetic palettes where you can add your own colors of eye shadows, blush, face powder, and lip color. I love the idea of these because customizing makeup is a great idea since everyone is so different. I have also mentioned before that I love palettes because they are great for travel and they make packing light easier!
During the blogger preview I received the below palette with shadows and a blush already picked out. It came with 5 eye shadows and one blush. I couldn’t find any name of the shades so I just numbered them so you could see the swatch and the actual eye shadow. I used all of the eye shadows in my look as well as the blush. I used 2 and 3 as my base (starting with the darker color on the outside and moving in to the lighter color). Then used 5 on my outer V with 4 in my crease. I then lightly dusted 1 to highlight.
Using these eye shadows without a primer were okay BUT using it on top of a primer has great results! I am loving the color payoff and they are very easy to blend. There is fallout when I use these so be prepared. My favorite colors in this set are the purple, silver, and the blush! The blush is so gorgeous, it has a hint of shimmer but not too much. I love wearing this in the day and night. I have made many different looks with the eye colors from this, I will be posting them as I upload pictures.
The magnetic palette is $14, the eye shadows are $12, and the blushes are $18.
I am really liking this concept. You can also sign up to sell their products too. Have you used any of Alcone at Home products before?!
