I am so excited to tell you about the Gabriel Cosmetics Classic Platinum Palette. First of all, this is the first company to send me make up so THANK YOU Gabriel Cosmetics. Second of all, they sent the PERFECT palette.
Gabriel Cosmetics is synonymous for creating vegan, gluten-free, and paraben free products. They use grape seed extract as a natural preservative. One of the best things is that 99% of their products are made in the good old USA! The icing on the cake is that they use eco-friendly packaging that is 100% biodegradable.
Gabriel Cosmetics is so much more than just shadows. If you were to visit their website – GO THERE NOW– you would be in gluten-free heaven. There is a nice variety in price for every wallet and so many products that compliment each other. The next thing on my list is the lips and lashes package featured!
The palette itself is black and sturdy, and is complimented with a large mirror inside the lid. The color pans seem to be easily interchangeable. It includes four neutral eye shadows, a translucent powder, a blush, and an applicator for both the powder and shadows.
The shadow colors can be worn by anyone looking for a natural, fresh look. They are described as Bone (natural ivory), Taupe ( Cool-Taupe/pink undertones), Caramel (Warm Brown/peach), and a warm chocolate-brown. There is a larger translucent setting powder and a larger Baked Apricot blush.
I was hesitant to apply such an orange looking blush however once applied it went splendid with my skin tone and it is now one of my favorites. The shadows are highly pigmented and stayed well with my shadow primer.
My only criticism is that the palette is on the heavy side. It felt more like a full wallet than a makeup palette. I also thought he blush/powder brush was small, too small to bother. I believe another couple of shadow pans could have been added instead. Overall, I LOVE the palette and would recommend it to anyone wanting a neutral, natural look.
Thank you again to Gabriel Cosmetics for providing this product for review. I appreciate it!
