I first saw 16 Brand Sixteen Eye Magazine Eyeshadow Palette on a Facebook video. I was so interested and amazed by it I went to Althea and ordered one for P540. Other sites were selling it for P800+. Was it as easy to use as the video showed? You’re going to find out in this post!
First things first — the 16 Brand Sixteen Eye Magazine packaging is da bomb. It actually looks like a mini magazine. I got eyeshadow palette #01 Everyday. There are 4 different palettes available but this was what I saw on FB and Althea.
Opening the box reveals a small 2-shade palette that’s less than half the size of its packaging.
It’s pretty straightforward. It comes with a tiny square applicator brush.
The #01 Everyday palette’s colors are pretty neutral — shimmery peach and shimmery brown. I think it will suit most complexions.
I swept the tiny brush across the palette the way I saw them do it in the video.
Here’s a swatch of the 2 colors together from one brush.
This is how they looked when I swept the brush scross my eyelid twice. Pigmentation and color pay-off are surprisingly good. Better than how it was on my arm — I think foundation helped bring out the colors in this case. My arm was bare when I initially swatched. The brown shadow came out blocky so I was going to need to blend.
Blending was super easy with a bullet brush. I just blurred the line between the brown and peach eyeshadows.
This is the result of my 2x color sweep and blending. I guess it looks like what they showed on the video?
This is the finished look. I like it, it really is perfect for everyday use!
Slightly shimmery, bright, and fresh!
What I like about 16 Brand Sixteen Eye Magazine:
- It’s pretty foolproof — just swipe across your lids and blend.
- Pigmentation is impressive.
- The tiny brush is actually good for putting on color.
- It’s small enough to travel with.
- It lasts — I applied 9am and it was still intact by 4pm.
Downside? None. I find P540 a fair price for what I got and I’m really liking everything about this product. So yes, recommended!
