Buxom Boss Babe Betty Eyeshadow Palette

For Summer 2019, Buxom came out with two new eyeshadow palettes; Boss Babe Betty and Boss Babe Dolly! Available at Ulta and Nordstrom, these palettes feature 12 shades in shimmery and matte finishes. Today, I'm reviewing the Boss Babe Betty eyeshadow palette!

The shimmery shades are buttery smooth and extremely pigmented, even without a primer! Sometimes I like to apply eyeshadows with my fingers (it makes the colors look more vibrant), but I don't feel the need to do that with this palette. Color me impressed!

The mattes are less pigmented than the shimmery colors, but the color payoff is intense with an eyeshadow primer. They don't look patchy on the skin and they are easy to blend!

The only shade that didn't impress me is Crazy Rich. The formula is SO chunky and really difficult to work with, I ended up with glitters all over my face. The color payoff isn't that great either. I don't understand how this one passed muster because the rest of the palette is fabulous!

Buxom Boss Babe Betty Eyeshadow Palette Review

Overall, I love the formula and the colors! I wish the shade Crazy Rich wasn't so chunky though. I rarely love all the colors in an eyeshadow palette so it's not a dealbreaker for me, but still.. Why, Buxom, why?

If you love warmer eyeshadow palettes and don't mind one dud shade, then I think you should check this one out!

  1. I loved buxoms custom palettes, I loved how the shadows had built in primers and had such payoff. I'm glad to hear these shades are the same but too bad about that one shade being chunky.

    1. The other colors are so nice though, so the one dud shade doesn't really bother me!

  2. I love all the shades in this one! I've actually never tried a buxom palette now that I think about it!
