We have another beauty collaboration, and this time it’s the Violet Voss Care Bears Eyeshadow Palette, which is one of two brand new palettes which Violet Voss has created in collaboration with Care Bears.
We saw a lot of influencer collaborations in 2019, but thanks to the global crisis, we’ve seen brands shift to licensed collaborations, and Care Bears is whom Violet Voss decided to work with for this collaboration.
“Dive into the world of Care Bears and create all the fun looks you can dream up with this 12-pan palette. The high-pigment shades blend and layer flawlessly and come in a carefully selected range of finishes, from ultra-smooth mattes to an unforgettable duo-chrome.”
The Violet Voss Care Bears Eyeshadow Palette is $36, and contains twelve shades, all inspired by the different Care Bears. As you’d imagine, it’s a super colourful palette, just like the bears, but there are three neutral shades too, which look pretty against the super bright and intense colourful shades.
The shades inside the Violet Voss Care Bears Eyeshadow Palette are;
- Love-A-Lot Bear (matte bright red)
- Cheer Bear (matte fuchsia)
- Best Friend Bear (rose-gold foil)
- Share Bear (matte violet)
- Good Luck Bear (green pearl)
- Bashful Heart Bear (matte cyan green)
- Grumpy Bear (matte cobalt)
- Surprise Bear (metallic eggplant)
- True Heart Bear (white-pearl-shifting pink)
- Funshine Bear (yellow-gold foil)
- Friend Bear (metallic orange copper)
- Tenderheart Bear (matte warm brown)
The pans inside this palette are huge, with 12 x 0.11 oz/ 3.11 g, so you’re getting a lot of product for your money. The above photo is one of Violet Voss’ photos, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a photshopped image.
The skin is so blurred it doesn’t even look like skin. Why are we morphing skin to look inhuman, it really doesn’t make the brand look great, as they’ve manipulated the image so much, how do we know they haven’t done the same with the swatches?
It’s a beautiful palette, but they never used to manipulate their photos this much, and it’s disappointing, when brands like YSL and Huda Beauty are publicly announcing they do not retouch photos. It might be a palette to swatch instore, to see what the quality is like, and the palette is available right now.
