Edition 01 Details
The Artist-In-Cheif for this month’s palette is Evon Wahab:
Talented YouTube and Instagram celeb Evon Wahab creates seductive looks that say “who, me?” while you marvel at her pouty lips and perfect cat eye. She looks likes a supermodel, but won our hearts with her charming personality. In this palette, she will show you how to create mesmerizing looks with sunny brights, power browns, and charred-greens.
The following items were included in this month’s palette:
- cream lip color in – Coral Kisses & Almond
- eyeshadow in – Fudge, Sunshine & Mermaid
- highlighter in – Halo
- cheekcolor in – Sandstorm
- eyeliner in – Chameleon
- lip liner in – Cake Pop
At first glance this month’s palette looks a little intimidating, but don’t judge it right away. I did a little snooping on their website and found the photo below. They conveniently show us how to use this palette to create the following, not so intimidating, looks:
I can definitely see how you could create a toned down version of these looks by playing around with the colours. Now that I see how pretty they are once applied, I’m actually kind of excited about the shades we received. Yes, the Artistic look is intimidating, but the lips are doable. The Date Night look could easily be a Daytime Look by toning down the eyes, and the casual look is definitely something I would do, with just a little less liner and lip color.
Deck of Scarlet Review March 2017
I am beyond thrilled with this new beauty subscription box. I absolutely hate shopping for makeup, which means my collection is lacking. This is the perfect way for me to experiment without having to spend hours in the makeup aisle. The fact that it is a palette also appeals to me…..very much! I am all about convenience when it comes to beauty products and having them all in one cute little palette is extremely convenient. This month’s Deck of Scarlet palette is a little out of my comfort zone, but that’s what makes the subscription so much fun. I would love to see a neutral palette in the future, as well as one with purple shades, but the bold hues are fun as well. I’m already a huge fan of this subscription.
