I received the Reina Del Caribe palette in this months BoxyCharm. I’ve been on the edge about purchasing it on my own, so I was really stoked to see it with my BoxyCharm. Let’s get into it!
Alamar Cosmetics Reina Del Caribe Vol 1.
This is an 8-Pan, Cuban themed palette with 4 mattes, two shimmers, and two metallics. It’s stunning!!
Straight from Alamar Cosmetics site: “This palette features 8 highly opaque shades, reminiscent of the beauty and culture of Cuba. Dive into the pigments and pearls found in the intense metallics, or ground your look with the warm richness of the creamy mattes. For a more intense application, refer to the shade names that feature a water droplet, these shades can be used with a wet brush—the sun symbol represents the shades that should be used with a dry brush.”
Do not take these shades lightly! They are intensely pigmented! These colors leave so much room for creativity. The palette is extremely aesthetically pleasing. The four shinier shades are on top followed by the four velvet mattes on the bottom. Let me breakdown the shimmers and metallics:
La Costa and Varadero are high shine shimmers.
El Malecon and Celia are two high shine metallics
These swatches are from top of the palette (left to right) to the bottom. Each swatch was created equal. The first photo is in natural sunlight and the other is with flash.
I am obsessed with this palette!
Overall rating 10/10! I don’t have a single complaint about this palette!
I am finally filming videos for my YouTube channel. I am SO FREAKING excited to finally get this off the ground. 😆😆
