Skylark Snowkissed Cashmere Eye Shadow Palette– A Product Review

Skylark Eye Shadow Palette

Elle and Blair Fowler are two sis­ters who are two of the most pop­u­lar beauty gurus on Youtube. They started their Youtube careers four years ago in their bed­rooms. Armed with their cam­eras and imag­i­na­tions they did hun­dreds of beauty tuto­ri­als, reviews and Youtube tags to their ever grow­ing fan base.

Today Blair Fowler, bet­ter known as (Juicystar07) has over 1.1 mil­lion fol­low­ers and Elle Fowler her sis­ter(allthatglitters21) has over 850,000 Youtube fol­low­ers. For two sis­ters this Youtube career has taken off and opened a whole new world of oppor­tu­ni­ties. In the sum­mer of 2012 the girls launched their fist book Beneath the Glit­ter and now their beauty makeup line Sky­lark. In this blog I will be doing a prod­uct review for their hol­i­day eye shadow palette called Snowkissed Cashmere.

The Snowkissed Cash­mere Eye Shadow Palette is offered by Elle and Blair Fowler on Blush.com. The palette retails for $40.00 and comes with six eye shad­ows, one cheek high­lighter and one dou­ble ended makeup brush. The palette col­ors are:

  • Satin Sparks High­lighter — sparkling peach (0.2 oz.)
  • Ember Eye Shadow — deep red/cranberry (0.07 oz.) Shiver Eye Shadow — deep, shim­mery blue (0.07 oz.)
  • Nut­meg Eye Shadow — frosty brown/purple (0.07 oz.)
  • Pinecone Eye Shadow — bronzy brown (0.07 oz.)
  • Blitzen Eye Shadow — shim­mery golden beige (0.07 oz.)
  • Lace Eye Shadow — soft satin creamy beige (0.07 oz.)
  • Dual-Ended Eye Shadow Brush

The kit also comes with three makeup tuto­r­ial cards on the side that high­light three dif­fer­ent makeup looks that you can cre­ate. The kit arrives nicely pack­aged with two sam­ples from Der­ma­s­tore ( part of Blush.com) a lip quencher and a sam­ple of an anti-wrinkle cream.

First impres­sions, Blush.com took over ten days to deliver this prod­uct. I assume this is due to the Cyber Mon­day rush and the shear pop­u­lar­ity of this brand and prod­uct. The palette is in a sil­ver hard cover case that is meant to repli­cate the “cush­ioned pil­low” or what I call the “Chanel Look”. The case is very nice with the sil­ver cush­ioned design and has a nice deep navy, satin rib­bon on the front with the Sky­lark Logo in silver.

The out­side case is very thick and has a nice mag­net clasp that helps to keep your makeup securely in place. I really liked this pack­ag­ing and that fea­ture espe­cially. When you open up the box, you see a very pretty fem­i­nine mir­ror that has the Sky­lark logo and a pat­terned design on the sides.

The eye shadow and high­lighter sec­tion is very nicely laid out and the col­ors are very vibrant and pig­mented. The feel of the eye shad­ows has a very nice satin feel to them and you can tell they are high qual­ity. I did the every­day neu­tral eye that required the use of Lace, Pinecone and Nut­meg. Those col­ors glide onto your face and they shine and feel very smooth. The eye shad­ows do not over clump or crum­ble away when you use them, as they do with cheaper qual­ity prod­ucts. The high­lighter has a very nice shine to it and goes over very nicely on appli­ca­tion. My favorite prod­uct in the palette is the high qual­ity dou­ble ended brush. This was a nice sur­prise that was easy to use in con­junc­tion with the eye shadow palette.

All in all I give this a ten out of ten on the scale of pack­ag­ing, qual­ity, expec­ta­tions and usabil­ity. The price of $40.00 I find to be in the mod­er­ate range in the prices of most beauty prod­ucts. Time will tell how long the prod­uct will last but for now I am very very happy and pleased with this prod­uct. The Fowler girls did a great job on their eye shadow palette con­sid­er­ing this was their first one. I highly rec­om­mend this prod­uct to any beauty inclined per­son or as a won­der­ful gift for some­one. You can find this prod­uct on www.blush.com.
