$1 Profusion Twinkle Twinkle Palettes are Back

Profusion Twinkle Twinkle Palettes for the Holidays

I don’t mean to jump over Halloween, but I was at Walgreens last night and the Holiday Season has arrived in the beauty aisle.  One display that really caught my eye contained the $1 Profusion Twinkle Twinkle Palettes that I discovered last year.  Check out this post for my initial discovery and review of the Profusion Twinkle Twinkle Palette in #03 (the green one).  I was impressed with my last Twinkle Twinkle Palette, so I had to pick up another one.  This time, I chose #02, the neutral palette.

The .28 oz palette contains huge pans for such an inexpensive product.  These aren’t those tiny pans that you can barely fit a brush into, no sir.  The shadows are smooth, and the silky formula blends easily without getting muddy.  I did not find them powdery or chalky in the slightest.  They have great pigmentation, especially the darker shades.  I did experience a tiny bit of fading when worn alone, so be sure to use a primer to make these shadows last all day.  I also had some fall-out from the darkest shade of the #02 palette because it has a slightly different texture than the others.  But honestly, these are minor complaints for a really good palette that is only $1.

The shades in the Profusion Twinkle Twinkle Palette in #02 are:

  • A champagne-toned ivory with a pearl finish.  It shows up almost white on my skin.
  • A light nude with an off-matte finish.  This is somewhere between a matte and satin finish and is very close to my skin tone.
  • A medium, cool-toned bronze shade.  This has a satin-shimmer finish.
  • A cool-toned taupe with a gray-green flash.  The finish is more on the metallic side.
  • A brown-toned dark plum.  This shade is a little dryer than the others, hence the fallout discussed above.  The overspray has some fine glitter particles, but the shadow itself has a satin finish.

I really like the Profusion Twinkle Twinkle Palette in #02.  The two lighter shades make great highlights, not just for the eyes but also the cheeks.  The pans are large enough to use a small blush or contour brush with them.  You can make a complete eye look with just this palette (which was not the case with the green palette) and I appreciate that.  For $1, you can not do better.  I definitely think the formula trumps e.l.f. shadows.  The Profusion Twinkle Twinkle Palettes are Limited Edition or the Holidays, so be sure to grab the ones you want now while you have the chance.  They make fantastic stocking stuffers, though if you are like me, you probably don’t want to think about that for another week at least.  😉  So head on down to your local Walgreens and grab a Profusion Twinkle Twinkle Palette or two.  They are definitely a great budget-friendly find.

I am a self proclaimed eyeshadow junkie whose main hobbies include shopping, reading, singing, and mainlining caffeine while hanging out with my friends. I love interesting socks and have amassed quite a collection. The place that I want to visit before I die would be Greece. I like to read all seven Harry Potter books once a year the way some people read the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. (Sorry JRRT, but JKR kicks butt in my book.) I love art, and use my creativity in many different ways through painting, crafts, and makeup. I love to cook and try new things, and I especially love to eat. My favorite "date" is to go wine tasting, and do so with my husband once or twice a year. I love musical theater and think the world would be much better off if we all just watched more musicals. I am 100% a cat person and, although I think dogs can be really cute and sweet, they make me sneeze so cats will always rule. I love faeries and magic, mythology, theology, philosophy, and psychology. I regularly do logic puzzles and sometimes crosswords. I adore Bette Midler, Betty White, and Carol Burnett. I am not ashamed to admit that I watch Glee. I would like to start making some of my own clothes because I can't stop myself from buying fabric. I'm sure that there is much more, but I'm suddenly distracted by something shiny.
