Unfiltered Series: #Caffeine Holic Palette
I was doing some shopping on Amazon when this palette was under recommended products. When I saw the name of the product, I knew I had to buy it, because I’m a big coffee drinker. And all the eyeshadow shades are inspired by coffee beverages.
When I received the palette, I was surprised by the size of it. It’s a bit smaller compared to eyeshadow palettes from other brands that I use such as ABH and Smashbox. That’s not necessarily a bad thing! Caffeine Holic consists of 10 shades that are perfect for every day makeup. This palette has nudes but also some glitter colors.

What I like about this palette is that the colors aren’t super pigmented. To be honest, I’m kinda over makeup looks done with very pigmented colors. I’ve started to prefer the soft looks more. And these eyeshadows help me achieve this. They’re easy to blend and the color is buildable. All the shades are long lasting.
As for the Q-tips provided, I only use them for applying glitter colors because it makes the application easier than with a brush and makes the glitter stay in place. The one thing I don’t like about the palette is that the names of the shades are only listed on the back. For me, when I create an eye look, it’s easier to memorize the name of the shades used, so I remember how to recreate it lol.
Here’s some the eye looks created using this palette ~
I numbered each shadow I use and the numbers mean the following steps:
1 - apply the shadow all over the lid and crease
2 - put the glittery color only on the lid
3 - apply it in the outer V and then blend it out
For look no.3, there’s 4 steps because I apply 2 eyeshadow all over the lid and crease instead of just one.
