88 Color Matte Pearlescent Eyeshadow Palette from Tmart Review and Giveaway [Closed]

I received 88 Color Matte Pearlescent Eyeshadow Palette for review as well as the opportunity to host this giveaway. No other incentive was provided and opinions are my own.

Tmart matte pearlescent eyeshadow palette

Any woman who finds herself with an ever-expanding collection of beauty products can tell you that this mild obsession, while it may seem superfluous to some, is one born of pure and simple fun. From the very first time a girl is introduced to and starts to experiment with makeup, it opens up this whole new, exciting world. A world dedicated to creativity and self-expression, and what could be better than that?

While my personal collection of beauty products has grown steadily over the last couple of years, Like many other women out there, I found myself beginning to rely solely on the everyday essentials and little else. Most days I can be found wearing only the basics: foundation, super magical concealer for the bags the size of Texas under my eyes, blush, eyeliner, and mascara. Recently, however, I got back to everything that is fun about cosmetics, and eyeshadow in particular, with the 88 Color Matte Pearlescent Eyeshadow Palette from Tmart.com.

I have always loved eyeshadow, probably because I don’t wear lipstick practically ever and therefore can play up my eyes without making too bold of a statement. With 88 colors to choose from, I could practically see the doors of the makeup world bursting open with possibilities that move away from the basic, everyday shades a lot of women find themselves sticking to over time. I wanted to coordinate fun colors with my outfits, work on blending techniques, and finally attempt some of those impressive looks that beauty gurus are always posting video how-tos of that I have consistently marveled at. Then I tried the eyeshadows laid out in this palette and all hope was lost.

Unfortunately, I had a lot of problems with this palette. From the time I glided one of the included brushes over one of the eyeshadows, it immediately flaked everywhere. The flaking only got worse as I applied it, or better yet, attempted to apply it.

The first color I tried from this palette was the darkest black; because why not just go for it, right? I was expecting the result to be bold and dramatic; what I got was a mind-blowingly light grey that refused to apply evenly, flaked all over the place and somehow landed everywhere on my face than where it should have been. There was almost no pigmentation whatsoever.

Over the course of a few weeks, I went through the entire 88 color palette, at first excitedly, and then with frustration, and finally ambivalence. I actually started to think twice about bringing the palette out after getting my foundation, concealer, blush, and eyeliner on, not knowing if I would have so much trouble that I would end up having to wash my face and start again.

Unsurprisingly, the most use I have managed to get out of the 88 Color Matte Pearlescent Eyeshadow Palette is using the light ivory, peach, and taupe colors across my upper eyelid and lower lash line.

I can’t see this palette getting a lot of quality use out of anyone other than a tween or young teen who is just beginning to get acquainted with the fun-filled world of makeup and beauty products. This could be an ideal beginners palette — the low pigmentation of the colors is forgiving to a degree, and while it’s true that you get what you pay for in terms of quality most of the time, this Tmart eyeshadow is affordable enough that you can feel okay about purchasing makeup that you know is being used to learn and experiment with.
