Honey Bee Eye Shadow Palettes Review

I recently received my iHerb haul and two of the products I have been loving are these Honey Bee Eye Shadow Palettes.


Each palette comes in a magnetically latched case and contains four shades and an eco-friendly bamboo dual end sponge/brush.

The shades are highly pigmented , they blend well and the colours are very usable for a variety of combinations.

Honey Bee Gardens are an all natural company who manufacture cosmetics and personal care products.  I love their mission statement;

 "Create pure, all-natural bath and body care products made from only the finest organic ingredients, offer them at a reasonable price, and treat every customer like a friend."

HBG is a US brand and you can purchase them here at iHerb or if you prefer to purchase within Australia you can purchase online HERE or at participating Health Shops.

Lets take a closer look at the palettes and what I think of them.

The Cosmopolitan - this is a gorgeous neutral palette and probably the one I will get the most use out of.  Shades from (l-r) Kashmir matte, Satin Sheets shimmer, PS Pink matte, Angelic shimmer.

Rock the Smokey Eye - everything you need to create a smokey eye you will find in this palette.  Shades from (l-r) Nirvana matte, Chrome shimmer, Falon shimmer, Chivalry shimmer.  I especially love the purple shade Chivalry, a little bit of purple warms up a smokey eye.

I like that there are matte shades with a little bit of shimmer thrown in but what I love most is there is NO sparkle!!  Both palettes are very blendable, there was no fall out and of course you don't have to stick to one palette.  My favourite combination is to take Chivalry and mixing it up with PS Pink and Satin Sheets.  I'm a pink and purple girl at heart.

The dual ended brush is quite good, it feels like taklon.   Picks up the eye shadow really well, and is long enough for ease of application but I felt that the actual brush could have been a little bigger for shadow application.

I have very sensitive eyes and have to be very careful what I put on them, I try to stick to all natural eye products.  Anyone with sensitive eyes knows how important it is to find eye shadow that won't leave you wanting to rub your eyes out!   I prefer matte shades or slightly shimmery and these palettes are just perfect for me.

I purchased my palettes from iHerb because they have the best prices. Can be found at these links, Cosmopolitan and Smokey Eye.  RRP $29.99, Discounted $24.99, VIP discount $21.99.

All new iHerb customers if you apply discount code TUW872 at checkout you will receive $5 - $10 off your first order.
