PUR PRO x Etienne Ortega Eyeshadow Palette: Review and Swatches
Just in time for the holiday season, PUR has partnered up with renowned celebrity makeup artist Etienne Ortega to release a gorgeous 18-shade eyeshadow palette. Featuring a versatile array of everyday neutrals and smokey jewel tones, the PUR PRO x Etienne Eyeshadow Palette ($49 CAD) is available now at Shoppers Drug Mart. I've got a quick review and some swatches to share with you. To read on, click......

Packaging:
The PUR PRO x Etienne palette comes in a large cardboard packaging. There is a big mirror inside and each of the 18 shadows weighs in at 1g. The overall packaging is pretty slim and travel-friendly but it's definitely not made to last. The cardboard easily dents and scratches so if you own customizable magnetic compacts, it's probably worth depotting the shades for long-term use.

Formulation:
I haven't tried many eyeshadows from PUR so I didn't quite know what to expect with this palette. However, I'm happy to report that the formulation is amazing! You get a nice balance of satins, mattes, and shimmers and they are all beautifully pigmented and creamy. The formulation applies smoothly and blends seamlessly. However, what I love the most is the color selection. Because there are 18 shades in total, you not only get the neutral staples but also a good handful of glam nighttime shades like Paradise, Midnight, 3AM, and Galaxy. Also, because there are quite a few shades of neutral mattes, the palette's got you covered for transition and crease colors.

Overall, this is an amazing palette. The packaging leaves more to be desired but with 18 shades for $50, the formulation is top-notch! Additionally, the color selection is fantastic so big props to Etienne for curating such a practical and wearable palette!
