Cute Makeup Find: Flaunt Beauty French Riviera Eyeshadow Palette Review, Swatches, Photos

My best friend’s Jai has a little cousin, umm wait, scratch that. She’s not really little nor does she like to be referred to as little. She’s an adult at the tender age of 11.


No seriously, my friend’s cousin is 11 going on 30. We are just completely in awe that this child is growing up way too fast. Either that or he and I are so very old and we didn’t realize it. We recently took her out for a little shopping expedition and ended up at an Icing store. Me being me I was all about oooo’ing and ahhh’ing over the cute accessories and makeup bits and bobs although much of the makeup is geared towards tweens and earlier teens I still loving picking through it all.

My findings led me to Flaunt Beauty. Anyone see this stuff yet? It’s over priced makeup and fragrance available exclusively at The Icing. I’m such a sucker I absolutely fell in love with the cutesy palettes because they sported cute Pin Up Girls. Loves!

Check it!

A cute palette featuring four shades of eyeshadow!

Well the packaging is what sucked me in so let’s discuss that first. They have any number of these palettes available in various shade selections with various products included that range from just eye shadows to blush, bronzer, lip products, and shadows combined. Of course, the vintage pin up girls might catch your eye as they did mine. Packaging is really pretty cute. It’s a flip top design featuring a secretary pin up girl flashing us her stockings, SO not politically correct for Tweens but adorable if you’re a fan of Dita Von Teese or just pin up art in general.

Count me surprised the eyeshadows aren’t THAT bad either. You get four shades which include Warm Sand (creamy beige), 24-Carat (bronze), Hot Cooper (chocolate brown), and Coastline (soft ocean blue). They have a silky formula with decent pigmentation and they apply and blend dreamy-like.

$15 bucks puts this in the realms of crazy high price in my opinion but you can nab one at full price and one for 50% off if that’s any consolation.

Sadly, the shadows blend nicely and apply well but they have really bad staying power. Even with my trusty Urban Decay Primer Potion in place they migrate around and fade and crease and just end up not sticking around long at all!

  • Anyone who likes kawaii makeup purchases!
  • Anyone looking for a cute little palette for a budding makeup user (tweens and teens should love this).

  • Anyone wanting eyeshadow that wears long and strong!

Do you need it? No way. But it is damn cute which is why I wanted to share it with you. You might want to check out the collection your next trip to The Icing. It’s completely rubbish makeup but the packaging might appeal to your collector’s side.

Anyone see this line before?

What do you think of the packaging?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    this somehow reminds me of the Chili Pepper palettes I saw at Boots here in the UK…they are 3 for 2 (cheapest is free)…but does not come with the vintage pinup girl, aside from that other aspects of the package are the same…

    • the Muse

      rain totally true! I have a few of the chili pepper palettes and they are indeed VERY similar ;-D sans pin up girl!

  • Daisy

    Hi Muse. Totally fell in love with these when I went to the mall but couldn’t justify the high prices. However, everyday since my excursion I have visited the website lemming for them. “Hi everyone. My name is Daisy and I am a sucker for cute packaging”. Lol

    • the Muse

      ha daisy! you too!? 😀 They are actually NOT bad but sadly the wear time is zero! but the shadows have a nice formula ;-D price tag needs to be way lower though! Aw hell I’ll hold your hand and say the same, I’m the Muse and I’m a sucker for kawaii packaging! ha! AA for beauty junkies!

    Ohhhh, that packaging is so cute! The imprint of the crown is a really nice touch. It’s a shame the shadows don’t last because they look perfect for spring/resort wear. Fingers crossed they go on sale soon so I can indulge! p.s. – when is Dita going to come out with a makeup line, it’s so overdue!

    • the Muse

      OMG PJ! I’d die, DIE if she did a makeup line! I dunno who I admire more, her or bettie page. Such gorgeous women!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;-D

  • Kiara

    Omg! I own flaunt in My Sultry and New York chic and they were part of a buy 10 for 10$ and I love them!!!
