EDUN for Sephora Palettes are reduced to $15 at Sephora currently. The original price was $36 so it might be a nice one to pick up for Back to School or if you’re just wanting a new little palette to play with!
I snagged the Harmony one which is the warmer of the two shade selections available.
I’m not a fan of Sephora makeup but the colors were so pretty I couldn’t resist!
Jump ahead to hear the review!
A palette brought to you from EDUN that features several shades of shadow and a blush presented in a wooden box and organic cotton case with $3 from every sale going to the Wildlife Conservation Society, to fund activities of the Conservation Cotton Initiative in Uganda, which supports the organic cotton trade while helping local communities and protecting biodiversity.
Packaging gets props as it comes housed in a white box with the EDUN emblem on top plus the actually palette comes housed in a draw string bag which can double up as an MP3 holder or makeup bag. They definitely paid a little extra attention to the packaging on this and it shows.
The actually palette is a wood design with a side flip design. We’ve seen such a style before from Smashbox. It’s a slim compact and looks fancy enough but it’s not entirely travel friendly.
Inside you’ll find six Sephora Eyeshadows and one Sephora Blush. Yes, it’s Sephora makeup without a doubt. Sephora does in house brands as you know such as the Kat Von D Collection however the formula does border differently in terms of texture and formula on those lines however EDUN did not get the same treatment. The shadows are definitely Sephora brand as is the blush. Not necessarily a bad thing but quality isn’t always that great if you’ve been privy to Sephora cosmetics before you understand what I mean.
The shades included in Harmony are simply stunning. Very warm and Summer-y but also plenty beautiful for Fall. You get a shimmering gold, a peachy pink, a fiery copper, and three shades of contrasting brown plus an Orgasm-like blush which comes across peachy pink. The blush is very pretty and applies beautifully.
Shadow texture varies and some have chunky bits of glitter which isn’t particularly nice. Shimmer is always great as far as I am concerned but this seems like craft glitter. The shades are all very pigmented however they don’t all blend fabulously and in some cases look a tad unnatural on because of it. With proper care and attention you can achieve a gorgeous look but some patience is needed.
- Beauty junkies on a budget ($15 bucks gets you six shadows, one blush, and awesome packaging but some quality must be forsaken).
- Anyone who likes warm shades (even though quality is slightly lacking I can’t deny the colors are rockin’).
- Anyone who doesn’t have patience for makeup that just isn’t quite right (chunky glitter, blending problems, and a cheaper feeling formula way not be for you).
The quality wasn’t quite up to my makeup standards but I really love the palette regardless. If I paid full price I’d probably be ranting a bit more but at $15, I’m going to throw it out there and say it’s an overall nice palette. I think one of my main reasons for loving it is the colors are very pretty and very me. The shades are warm and gorgeous and not only ideal for the Summer weather but well into Fall.
This is a decent purchase and probably worth picking up at the sale price.
