I am always one on the lookout for great quality eyeshadows that don’t cost me a fortune, which is why I decided to try out this Australis Halo eyeshadow palette.
I got it from Priceline and it’s the Idolise palette. It comes with three mattes and two more shiny and shimmery shades. I have to say my favourite shade is the shimmery brown, as it’s quite pigmented and easy to blend!
As you can see from the swatches, the matte shades aren’t as pigmented as the shimmery ones, especially when you use a brush with them. When I swatched with my finger, all the shades came out very smooth. But when you use a brush they do tend to be a little more powdery and not as pigmented. However, they are still not patchy and you can build the colour up.
They do have fall out when you first apply them to the eye however I found that they stay pretty put on the eyelid after that and don’t disappear, especially the brown shimmery one.
So overall I think that if you are looking for a basic palette that you can easily fit into your bag, this is a great choice! I do like how compact it is, the packaging it simple but for travel I find it works pretty well.
