An explosion of colors, or a journey through the rainbow with Amazon 🌈 39 brightest highly pigmented shades, my 6 makeup looks and 10 schemes.
After using the palette for a month now, I can finally share my opinion on it with you and show you some of the makeup I’ve already done with it.
This is the Color Fusion palette from the Chinese brand Beauty Glazed.
〰️ About the packaging 〰️
When I unpacked the puffy bag, I was pleasantly surprised. The palette was more compact than I thought it would be. At the same time, it was incredibly beautiful (for unsophisticated makeup lovers like me).
It’s a cardboard box with magnets in the lid. It’s very convenient, in all the time I’ve never had a palette accidentally opened.
And in general I really like the design. Very stylish and not overloaded looks this blue iridescence and some colors of the rainbow on the front. And also noticeable as if the leaves of palm trees (or some other plants). Immediately there is a feeling of summer, as if we are entering a tropical paradise.
As for the packaging, there is also a transparent film inside that takes care of all the prints and shadows.
There’s a film inside.
Overall, the palette is very well made. It’s nice to hold, and I wouldn’t say it’s only $9. The same palette from NYX is times more expensive, with far fewer colors, which are also highly repetitive. And here there’s a noticeable variety.
〰️ Basic Information 〰️
The composition can be seen in the photo below:
In brief, the manufacturer promises us high pigmentation and easy mascara:
Easy to blend
Here you can also find the Directions.
Apply gently with a brush. The shimmering textures will show their full beauty if applied with your fingers.
That is, the manufacturer itself recommends applying the shimmery shades (the entire third row) with your fingers, not with a brush. And I totally agree with this from my experience. Although, a small brush will do for applying to the inner corner, because you can’t get there with your fingers, and all the glow shades are very soft, so they can be easily applied with small brushes and are good for spot application. On the whole eyelid, of course, it’s better to apply with your fingers.
There is also a note on the bottom that the brand does not test cosmetics on animals. I don’t know if that’s true, but at least they write about it.
〰️ All shades and swatches 〰️
As I wrote before, there are a total of 39 shades in the palette.
Some of them are repetitive (for example, here are 2 identical yellows, 2 medium between yellow and lettuce, a lot of reds and 2 almost identical raspberry shades). But otherwise, all the shades are noticeably different. For example, there are almost all shades of green from warm to cool, various blues and sea waves. There are even purples, but I wish there were more of them instead of reds.
Truth be told, I didn’t buy this palette for the reds, but for the yellows, greens, blues and purples. And I got it all!
So, swatches. I’m not going to show each shade individually, because there are too many of them and the review would get cumbersome. I will show the swatches in rows.
All the colors actually look matte, but I want to point out that in the refil, you can see up close that shades 1 and 4 are actually satin. They have little shimmers in them that are not noticeable on the skin.
The third shade is actually orange, although it wasn’t noticeable in the photo of all the refills due to the camera distorting the colors a bit. But in the swatch, I think you can see that it’s not red, but orange. It’s the only one here, by the way. There’s another one with a hint of orange, but it’s still more of a red.
This is my favorite row, and it is also the most beautiful. All of the shades here are radiant and very soft, like butter. They all look very pretty on the eyes, exactly like the swatches. There’s no disappointment that it’s candy on the swatches and poop on the eyes. I especially love that ultramarine color, or something like that. Also, the lettuce was unexpectedly good and bright. I jokingly applied it for the first time once – and gasped (I’ll have it later in my makeup).
Here again two identical reds, because the differences in the mascara will definitely not be noticeable. The yellow one is exactly the same as the one in the first row (I tried as much as I could, there was no difference, but I need yellow a lot and I use it a lot, so one would not be enough for me), 2 almost the same green ones next to it (yes, one is warmer, the other one is cooler, but it won’t be different for my eyelids). But there’s a nice dark blue and purple here to help darken the outer corner.
To be honest, from this last row I only used the last three shades, because they are the most interesting. I’m definitely not interested in those obscure browns and reds in this palette. I didn’t buy it for them. But I need it in case I really feel like nude with this particular palette. I have enough shades like that everywhere.
I’d like to mention that I always remove all kind of makeup with just hydrophilic oil, so I’ve never had any problem removing even these bright shadows. But the swatches I decided to remove from my hands with micellar water and found that some traces of the brightest shades remain (and it’s the shiny ones from row 3):
After removing only with micellar water, some traces may remain
So just in case, I recommend removing your makeup immediately with hydrophilic oil and don’t bother.
〰️ Makeup variations 〰️
I’ve only managed to do 6 makeup looks so far, but that’s not the limit of my imagination or the possibilities that someone else has already come up with (I mean, some of my makeup looks were inspired by ideas from the internet).
I did all my makeup on a bare eyelid, without a base. Even though I have it, it’s easier and faster for me to touch up shadows without it. That way, I can get a little smudge. Sometimes I just powdered my eyelids.
- My first makeup look with this palette. I used raspberry, red, orange and yellow. As you can see, the shadows mascara beautifully and there is a smooth transition from one shade to another. It’s also like they’re semi-neon. All in all, the pigmentation is intense. It’s also nice to see the difference between red and orange on the eyelid, too.
2. I’m not the most creative person, so this makeup was not invented by me, but I looked it up on the internet. It’s really quick and easy to do, and it looks really special. It made me look like a parrot
3. I couldn’t wait to try the blue and navy shades, so I did this mono makeup. I applied the blue from the bottom row to the entire eyelid, and softened the mascara with shade 6 from the second row. I also applied my most favorite metallic (ultramarine, as I call it) to the mobile eyelid. I used a glittery color from a different palette in the inner corner since I didn’t want to do more highlights.
- A light nude, so to speak. I have used purple (the last one in the first row), and the last purple I used to darken it. And then again yellow in the corner (as I said before, I can’t live without it and I use it most often).
5. This was an experimental makeup look which I didn’t really want to do. At first I did one eye (purple and blue) and I liked it, but I was too lazy to do the other one, because there were too many colors in it. And the catcrisis on the second eye was already done, so I decided to do metallic lettuce in it (just then I marveled at its beauty!). And then the inspiration came, and that’s how it turned out.
I can’t list the colors used anymore, but I think you can guess where, since the borders are pretty well visible.
- My least favorite makeup look ever, because it made me look like a frog. Also, for some reason the density of the lettuce from the 2nd row wasn’t enough, no matter how I layered it, so it came out pretty translucent. But I tried my best, and I wore it all day long. I even went grocery shopping!
In the future, when I do more bright makeup looks, I’ll add them to the review and flesh them out.
〰️ How the shadows work and wear 〰️
Having no experience with bright shadows, it was very easy for me to work with them without a single problem. I only had to clean up the crumbles 1 time when I did makeup number 5, where I had to layer the dark shades a lot with layering motions. Yes, then there was quite a bit of purple and blue crumbling under the eyes, but that’s understandable. No other shadows have crumbled on me. I think it depends on what kind of makeup you do and how you apply it.
As for pigmentation and mascara, you’ve seen it all for yourself. The pigmentation is intense even without a base. All the matte shadows have no problem with being applied and layered with a brush (and sometimes matte shadows don’t want to give pigment until you apply a base or use your fingers). The shadows blow on without any problems at all, and I’ve tried most of the shades from light to dark.
The only thing I noticed was that the lettuce one from the second line wasn’t as pigmented as the other matte shades. It also feels firmer to the touch than the others. I think the low pigmentation and its translucency is due to its texture. But as you can see, even with this I was able to do almost mono makeup. Nothing is impossible!
The consistency throughout the day is perfect. I went with my makeup for 8 hours at a time, and I didn’t see any shedding. The shadows didn’t even fade. After 6 hours, the shimmery shades can fall into the crease of the eyelid a bit, but this is easily smoothed out with a swipe of the finger and the makeup is good as new again.
This palette became indispensable for me and gave me the opportunity to learn something new, to get a little creative and dare to work with bright shadows.
Even a beginner will find it easy to work with the shadows, thanks to the ease of shading and the high pigmentation of almost all the shades. It’s full of all the colors of the rainbow, and the number of possible makeup looks is just endless! What makes me especially happy is that most of the shades do vary between each other and there really is something to choose from the 39 shades. And sometimes it can be hard to decide. Plus, I think it’s not only a great accent palette, but it’s also completely on its own if that’s the kind of vibrant makeup you want. I, doing all of my makeup, have only used it and only taken a silver glow from another palette 1 time. But it wasn’t the first necessity. For example, you could adapt the very first satin pink as well.
I also can’t help but mention the beautiful glowing shades, which you often can’t find in more expensive palettes either!
For this price of $9, I think it’s the best value for money and the number of colors in one palette! Definitely recommend, and I absolutely love it!
