Marissa Carter has launched her Carter Beauty Cosmetics with an astonishing 103 products & I was thrilled when I was invited to the breakfast launch. The brand is cruelty free & PETA approved. I received a goody bag of some of their products & my first review is of the warm velvet eyeshadow palette.
The warm velvet eyeshadow palette has 18 colours in it. The colours in this eyeshadow palette are beautiful. It reminded me a lot of the ABH modern renaissance eyeshadow palette with the beautful pink and reds shades, just with more shimmers.

I used this palette every day since I got it, so I have really tested it. I normally test eyeshadows staying powder with and without an eyeshadow primer and I’m going to honest with you, I didn’t even try it with an eyeshadow primer. The eyeshadows lasted all day for me without one. They blended so well and the colours are really pigmented. The only problem I had was with one shade only, which was Truffle, a dark brown. I felt that the shade didn’t come up as the colour in the palette, even when I tried to build it up a few times. It was more of a medium brown to me.

Overall, I love this eyeshadow palette. For €14.95, this is definetly worth the money. I will be purchasing the other eyeshadow palettes when they are being sold locally. This is definetly one eyeshadow palette you need. You can buy online on their site by Clicking Here or at selected pharmacies nationwide.
*Disclaimer: Although I received this at the Carter Beauty launch in a goodie bag, I always give my honest feedback.
