Hi and happy Tuesday!
The Buxom Stone Cold Babe Holiday 2016 set is one of the new offerings for the holiday season and it’s so cute!
Stone Cold Babe features a limited edition 12-shade Buxom Eyeshadow Bar Palette in Fire & Frost and a mini Buxom Lash Mascara in Blackest Black. The palette itself is silver and white and has a raised mirrored design on the front and opens to a large mirror and double-ended mini eyeshadow brush. The eyeshadows come in a little tray which you slide into the palette. The cool thing is that the shades slide in and out so you could use different ones if you wanted. Four of the eyeshadow colors are brand new to this palette as well.
Diamond Darling is a shimmery metallic pale pink/white.
Champagne Buzz is a light shimmery metallic rose gold.
Trendsetter is a light taupe matte.
Sequin Sparkle is a light sparkly taupe.
Frosted Pewter (new shade) is a light/medium sparkly grey/taupe.
LBD is a black matte.
Velvet Snow (new shade) is a shimmery white.
Mink Magnet is a medium bronze shimmery metallic.
Haute Couture is a deep shimmery chocolate brown metallic.
Jetsetter is a medium taupe mushroom matte.
Graphite Glam (new shade) is a sparkly deep grey.
Black Tie (new shade) is a black with silver sparkles.
Let’s start off with what I like. I think the palette itself (design-wise) is very pretty and I love that it’s refillable and easy to use to replace and refill with other shades if you wish. The mascara is nice. It feels like the same good quality as their full-sized mascara. The eyeshadow shades are mostly cool-toned but there are some neutral colors here as well. A decent mix of mattes and shimmers and sparkles. They are pigmented but not incredibly pigmented. The shimmery metallic ones seemed to have the most pigmentation and swatch the most evenly. Most of the mattes were even as well, except for the black one. The ones with the sparkles in them were on the lighter side and not super pigmented.
Is this a set yourself or someone you know might like for the holidays?
