Last year I wanted to add more colourful palettes into my collection. I had seen Certifeye all over social media, I had bought The Tropical Wonders palette and loved it, you can check out the review here. So it made sense to try another of their palettes.
Certifeye is now available on BeautyBay.com and is described as:
Loaded with a mix of matte and shimmer shades, The Destiny Palette allows for the creation of vibrant, long-lasting effects. From rich reds to deep greens and earthy browns, this collection of ultra-pigmented shadows blends effortlessly over the lids for a colour-rich finish that lasts all day long.
For £30 there are 18 shades in the palette, which is a bargain at £1.66 per eyeshadow!
- Magician – A pale pink shimmer.
- Tonic – A golden shimmer.
- Hex – A burnt orange matte.
- Alchemy – A terracotta matte.
- 6th Sense – A rust red matte.
- Brew – A cocoa brown matte.
- Paranormal – A bright red matte.
- Psychic – A cool red matte.
- Remedy – A plum purple matte.
- Smooch – A hot pink shimmer.
- Firestorm – A scarlet matte.
- Enchant – A deep brown matte.
- Dark Side – A forest green matte.
- Moss – An olive green matte.
- Glass Ball – A silver shimmer.
- Mystic – A deep purple matte.
- Warped – An electric blue matte.
- Potion – A true black matte.
Starting off with the shade range, a few of the shades do appear quite similar, such as 6th Sense and Firestorm especially when applied on the eyes. The reds appear more pinky on the eyes too as oppose to red. I also find the black isn’t as pigmented as other blacks I have used. Whilst this doesn’t seem super positive, this is a good palette. The shimmers Magician and Tonic make pretty highlights and the shadows are pigmented.
The eyeshadows are easy to build up to a strong pigment and super easy to blend. But I find I don’t reach for this palette as often as I thought. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good palette and the shades are pigmented. Compared to other palettes I have, I find I don’t reach for it often. It’s a nice addition to have in my collection for shade variations, but when I hit pan on the shades I don’t think I’ll be repurchasing this palette.
Thank you so much for reading, what is your go to palette?
