Absolute New York Icon Palette (Exposed): Gem or Junk?

Eyeshadow palettes have become my new makeup obsession and every time I find one worthwhile I get So excited to share it with you guys. 🥀Fair Warning: There will be a Lot of eyeshadow palette reviews in the near future. I hope you all are as excited as I am about that!🥀

Notice anything familiar?

It’s the Icon palette in ‘Exposed’. Since they have more than one Icon palette it would make since to have the names on the packaging to differentiate (they dropped the ball on that). Of course this palette looks just like the original Naked palette.  To be honest, I didn’t notice it until I got it home and opened it up again. I paid $6.99 for it at Burlington though the regular price is $14.99. This palette, and all of the other icon palettes can be found at www.absolutenewyork.com.

There are 3 mattes in this palette and the rest are shimmers

Oddly enough, I wasn’t drawn to the original Naked palette but for some reason I was Very drawn to this one. I have no idea what that could be about. 

Here I am before the look.

If you’ve read my Tarte Dream Big Palette review, then you already know that I’ve started putting Vaseline under my eyes because it catches any fall out, and also makes it more visible on camera. 

I look spooked.

While this palette didn’t have a lot of fallout, when you look at the outer corners of my eyes you can definitely see some. 

I honestly really enjoy this palette. All of the shades are soft and pigmented. They also blend wonderfully. Now I’ve never tried the original Naked so unfortunately I can’t speak to if this is a successful dupe quality wise, but this is a solid palette and definitely worth giving a go.

Until Next We Meet,
