The limited edition Gritty and Glow set comes with two magnetic palettes for the eyes and cheeks. Each palette features six shades that are highly pearlized and very soft. You can get glowing with the Glow Face + Eye Palette and create a smoldering smokey eye with the Gritty Eye Palette. Both can be split apart or clicked together with the magnetic feature. The Gritty & Glow Magnetic Eye and Face Palette retails for $70 CDN and $58 USD. You will be seeing swatches for both palettes shortly.
What it Does: (via The Estee Edit)
Be gritty and pretty with the Gritty & Glow Magnetic Eye & Face Palettes. These palettes feature 12 shades (6 shades each) that are formulated with tiny pearl particles for the most gorgeous, glistening sheen. These silky-soft, creamy formulas are designed to be super blendable for easy application. Bonus – the two mirrored compacts are magnetic so they can be clicked together for easy portability.
The glittery packaging is stunning and couldn't be more fitting for the holidays. I also love the contrast between the silver and the black palettes. The palettes are slim, sturdy and travel-friendly. The magnetic feature allows for easy portability when the two palettes are stacked. Inside, the names of the shade are printed on a plastic film. The names are also illustrated on the back of the palette which is great if you're like me and always loose the films.
Glow Face + Eye Palette:
The Glow Face + Eye palette contains 6 highlight shades that are universally flattering and can be used on the cheeks and the eyes. Of course I was more drawn to this palette because I'm a highlighter junkie. The shades are so beautiful; they range from "platinum gold, rose quartz and sunset bronze". The formula is amazing; super creamy and blendable. They are also fairly pigmented. You can mix and match each shade to customize your own glow. The darker shades can be used to add dimension to the cheeks and eyes. These shades can work as highlighters on darker complexions or bronzer on lighter complexions. I actually use the bronze shades as a bronzer, pink shades (middle row) as blush and the lighter shades for a highlight. The colours lasted about 8 hours on me before faded.
L-R: Snowlit (platinum), 14K Glow (champagne), 1st Light (soft pink), Gleam (peachy pink), Ray (golden bronze), Beachy (burnished copper)
Gritty Eye Palette
This palette features 6 intense pearlized shades to create the ultimate smokey eye. Whether you decide to go with a green, blue, brown or black, this palette will definitely help you achieve the perfect smokey eye. There are also two lighter shades for more everyday looks. All shades are shimmery while some contain sparkles. Wavy and Trip are amongst my top favourites. Trip has a gorgeous irresdecent finish. I've worn Swerve, Riff and Mood and they wore well for 8 hours. I can't wait to create some holiday looks with this palette.
