Review + Giveaway: The Lizly What A Lovely Palette

The Lizly What A Lovely Eyeshadow Palette (P460 at Althea) came out a couple of months ago as an Althea exclusive and, I hear, has become one of the Korean e-commerce site's instant best sellers. The richly pigmented swatches online are so pretty plus the colors are perfect for the holidays! I can see why it got a lot of interest online. But does it actually perform as good as it looks? 

Well, yes! For P460 you get six equally pigmented shades that are warm and gorgeous on the lids. They go on smoothly and are a dream to blend even without primer. They stay on a decent amount of time by themselves (maybe about two hours without primer) but improve vastly with a good eyeshadow base. Fall out could be a problem, but as long as you tap your brush to get rid of the excess, you'll be fine.

I wouldn't say this is a palette you can create a complete look with though. All of the shades have shimmer (though finish is more satin), and there is no brow bone or contrast shade. Lovely Day, an *almost* matte light brown, could pass for a transition shade but barely. I still need to pick up another palette just to finish and refine whatever I come up with the Lizly palette.

All the shades are beautiful as a lid wash but combining them together doesn't create much of a contrast. Lovely Heart could be worn on the crease to create a purply smoky eye - for daytime.

But what am I really grumbling about? The Lizly What A Lovely Eyeshadow Palette offers great value for those who are looking for an easy-to-wear palette with colors they can use FOREVER. You can create great daytime eyes with just a single color from the palette! 

I suppose if you're an eyeshadow freak and want All The Colors in one palette, this isn't for you. Otherwise, the Lizly is a great selection for eyeshadow beginners (and mavens) who just want something that looks great in less time.
