Pari Beauty Black Tie Palette Swatches and Review

By Wednesday, December 28, 2011 , ,

A few weeks back Pari Beauty sent me their new Holiday Palettes (Black Tie and Tricks of the Trade). I'm finally getting some time to do swatches and pictures.  I apologies for my dry skin, tis the season.
Black Tie is a full face kit that contains:
  • mirrored tri-fold travel compact
  • 10 blendable eyeshadows
  • 1 full sided lip gloss
  • 1 contour/bronzing powder
  • 1 highlighting face shimmer 
  • applicators
Sells for $38.25

I think this might be the perfect travel set. It folds up nice and small, has a mirror and everything you need in one place. 

I love that the shadows are either browns or blacks, making it more suitable for everyone, rather than a set with bold colours that might have one or two shades that turn people off (ex. blue, I don't wear blue shadows and it often throws me).

I love that there is a full sized gloss so you can take it with you for the night when you go out.

The bronzer is really pigmented. Crazy pigmented. That being said the highlighting face shimmer is so metallic it looks like an eyeshadow that has been foiled. With a gentle hand it looks amazing on the skin. I don't think I have ever seen such potent face powders before.

The eyeshadows are pigmented and go on really well, my hands don't do them justice (once again they are dry).

  • Good price
  • Everything you need but mascara and foundation
  • Great for a so many occasions
  • Has both brown and black shades for more diverse looks and smokey eyes
  • Full sized gloss
  • Super pigments bronzer and highlighter
  • Small 
  • Great for travel
  • Canadian company
  • Limited time
I love this set and with its low price I would buy it as a gift for someone in an instant. 

Will be doing two looks tomorrow using it.
