It’s pretty cool because I didn’t notice that these Palladio Couture Eyeshadow Trios were “herbal” and vitamin enriched until I gave the product a look over before writing this. Palladio is an American drugstore brand that is comparable to NYX, although NYX have really been stepping up in terms of quality lately. Palladio is an herbal brand of cosmetics that offers a healthier and gentler alternative for staying pretty at an affordable price.
I was in Beauty Bar just a week ago and these happened to be on sale. The packaging reminds me of the NYX Eye trios as well, but I love that this has a mirror. It really ticks me off if and when pressed powder cosmetics in a compact or palette don’t come with a miror . I tested them inside the store and these Palladio Couture palettes were such good value at Php175.00 (original price Php325.00) that I got the exact same one for mom, too.
If I’m not mistaken the Beauty Bar sale is either still ongoing or almost finished. Continue reading to see swatches and a quick, simple, subtle defined eye.
The colors of this trio in “Classic” are as wearable as you can get and the darkest color for your eyelid crease is a matte shade that would also work well on eyebrows or softly lined around the rims of your eyes.
Color payoff is silky and pigmented, and with minimal powder fallout.
I didn’t do anything fancy here, just simple almost undetectable definition, as is suited to daytime or for the office. In this case it was best to just stick with the basics. The medium color went all over my moveable lid followed by the deep brown softly blended in the crease and underneath the lower lashline. To finish I quickly blended the lightest shade across my browbone directly beneath the eyebrow. The Palladio Couture eye trio contains an herbal formula that includes Vitamin E, Aloe, Green Tea, Gingko Biloba Leaf Extract, Ginseng root and Chamomile. I needed something handy that wasn’t a huge palette to take along, this fills the position perfectly. The Palladio Couture trios come in other colors as well, make a quick trip to Beauty Bar to check them out 🙂 I got my Palladio trios from Beauty Bar at Power Plant Mall, Rockwell.
