Focallure 18 Shades Full Function Palette in 01 Bright Lux

Focallure 18 Shades Full Function Palette in 01 Bright Lux | LENNE ZULKIFLLY

I am so excited for today's post! I have been meaning to do a review the moment I got it, played with it and swatched it. So, today I will be reviewing Focallure's eyeshadow palette. If you haven't heard of Focallure, it is a makeup brand from China. It is quite popular because the quality of their eyeshadows on par with high-end ones. I was so excited to get my hands on it so I decided to buy one from a legit Instagram shop for RM40. You can also get it from Shopee, Alibaba and from their own website too.

Packaging

It comes in a black cardboard packaging. I mean, for the price, you cannot expect much. Although it is a cardboard, it does not feel cheap at all. There are plenty of brands came out with packaging like this. I do not have any issue with that. Oh and, it has a magnetic closure that keeps the eyeshadow safe and sound.

Shades

There are 18 shades in this palette, hence the name. You get 10 matte shades, 1 satin shade and 7 freaking awesome metallic, foiled, glittery shades. I figured the color scheme is ranging from oranges, terracotta to berry tones. I like the fact that each color has its own name, which makes it easier to explain.

Texture & pigmentation

As I swatch the matte shades with my fingers, I can feel that they were a little too pressed down because it was barely any fallout. Although I said such stuff, I do not know how they do it but most of them are so buttery still, and so pigmented! There are a couple of shades that did not show up that nice and the pigmentation was just not there but overall it is a pretty awesome palette.

Meanwhile, the metallic, foiled, glittery goodness shades, they are all gorgeous! I was so blown away by them. The colors show up really intense, the pigmentation is definitely there, spot on, mind-blowing and just great across the board. They are best applied with your fingers rather than a brush because it is more ka-poww that way.

Pros
Affordable
Blends easily
Great formula
Minimal to zero fallout
Excellent pigmentation
Does not irritate my eyes

Cons
Some shades tend to get muddy as they blend
Some colors are dry and stiff

Verdict

All in all, this palette is amazing. Almost all colors are great and beautiful. If you love playing with makeup but still does not want to spend so much money, I would say go for it. It would not break the bank, no? I mean, the pigmentation is even hard to achieve in a drugstore eyeshadow palette too. So, it is really nice to own one of these palettes.

Have you tried this eyeshadow palette?

  1. Are the ingredients used safe?

  2. Yes :) You can read the ingredients on their website. All the ingredients are commonly found in cosmetics, in my opinion. Nothing is dangerous, but you should be careful if you are allergic to Phenoxyethanol as it is one of the ingredients :)

    1. I too was thinking numerous times whether to get this palette or not. I have to give it to Fatin Zakki on Youtube for liking and approving this palette. So, I have to try it on myself. I was pleasantly surprised because for that price, it's not a bad product at all. You can make it work and I've created so many looks ever since I got it and it's safe to say that I had minimal to no issue at all. So far so good. It's normal for a product to have drawbacks and people not liking them etc etc. There's no such thing as perfect palette/ product :)
