I tested the Holiday Studio Gear Palette and receive the product to try complete with the handy “how to” on the top flip opening of the package. It retails for $40 but is on sale for $25 and now with a Starfish Chic readers code you get an additional 10% off!!
The Holiday Palette comes with 4 pigments and one blusher to create a shimmery and deep night time look or go lighter and make a fresh “dewy” look! The lid even includes which shades should be used where. The pigments included Platinum, Frost, Coal and Glimmer and includes Snowy Glow as the blusher. I tested the Studio Gear Eye Primer (a Studio Gear product I already owned) and the shades are definitely more intense when using a primer. Check out these photos. If there is an additional intensity consider blotting or stippling the color into place or apply wet directly to skin (no primer).

This is a great quality, inexpensive palette that you can use now and through the holiday season! I can see myself using the palette WAY into next year!
