Buxom Eyeshadow Bar to the Rescue

Buxom Eyeshadow Palette

Have you ever had that first world problem issue where you’re packing for a trip, and your go-to eye look involves three different palettes? You don’t want to bring all three because that’s ridiculous, so you have to settle (or screw it, you just bring all three). Allow me to introduce you to this build-your-own palette from Buxom…

I stopped to swatch these during a recent trip to Sephora, and I can’t tell you how thoroughly impressed I am with the quality of these! Buxom released this build-your-own palette (called the “Eyeshadow Bar“) a little while ago, and I’m surprised I haven’t heard more about these little click-in shadows. They are some of the most pigmented, smoothest, most buttery eyeshadows I’ve ever used. You get a hefty discount if you build the palette all at once, rather than buying single shadows. I had such a hard time choosing – every one of the shades offered here is gorgeous, and I’m pretty sure I swatched 80% of them before picking my six.

I decided to build myself a perfect travel palette, so I picked a mix of warm mattes that make an easy daytime eye (Designer or Die: matte beige, Gimme Gorgeous: matte camel, and Filthy Rich: matte warm brown), as well as three one-wash-wonder shimmers (Gold Status: brass, Mink Magnet: bronze, and Glitz Factor: copper). Sidenote: These are some of the best one-wash shadows I’ve used. They’re so pigmented that they actually look like cream shadows when applied.

The case is sturdy and the shadows snap in securely. Normally, I don’t care about whether a palette has a mirror or not, but in the case that I’m building my perfect travel palette, the big mirror that comes with this one is ideal. This little system is just so handy!

Have y’all tried the Buxom Eyeshadow Bar? What do you think about build-your-own palettes?
