Ace Beaute Grandiose Palette Review

Trying products from new brands is both super exciting and super scary. Obviously there’s always hoping that it’s amazing because that’s the goal, but there’s also always a fear (at least for me) that it’s not going to work out. I don’t know if it’s because I’m scarred from too many negative experiences or because I so badly want the products to work. Whatever the reason, excitement is always the more overwhelming emotion. Especially when it comes to eyeshadow!

The Ace Beautē brand is totally new to me and I don’t really know much of anything about them. As far as I know, their products are only available for purchase through their website. This particular Grandiose palette is listed at $25 for eight eyeshadows. That doesn’t seem too bad, so we’re already off on a good start!

The palette itself is very thin, which makes it great for travel. It’s set in cardboard packaging with a magnetic closure. There are shade names listed below each shadow, but there is no applicator or mirror provided on the inside. The back of the palette is completely empty and although I’m not a total ingredient police, it would be nice to have that information available so you know exactly what you’re putting on such a delicate area like the eyes.
The shades as shown from left to right in the swatch picture below are: Jasmine, Clove, Myrtle, Cinnamon, Patchouli, Rose, Poppy, and Primerose. It’s always a fun bonus when the shade names have a theme to them, although I’m not exactly sure what any of those have to do with the literal meaning of the word “grandiose.” Out of the eight shades in the palette, three of them are shimmer (Jasmine, Myrtle, and Primerose), four are matte (Clove, Cinnamon, Patchouli, and Poppy), and Rose is the only satin finish.

The pigmentation and texture in each of these shadows is absolutely amazing. They feel so smooth and take very little work to blend out on the eyes. The shimmers aren’t the most buttery of formulas, which I’ve found is actually better for oily eyes. When it’s a slightly more dry formula, it won’t crease as quickly and will stay in place longer throughout the day.
I do think the shade selection in this palette is wonderful. I would’ve liked Myrtle and Primerose to be matte, but that’s just my personal preference. I’ve never had any issues in applying or removing these eyeshadows. They last for about eight hours on my oily eyes with a primer. My one suggestion when using this palette is to go easy with Rose and Poppy. With a light hand, they can provide a gorgeous pop of color to compliment the other shades. But if you’re not careful, those two shades can make a look turn way too pink real quick. Stay tuned for a colorful tutorial with this palette coming up next week!

So far I’m really impressed with this Ace Beautē brand. I appreciate their affordability and quality of their products. This is a palette I would recommend and I definitely want to look into what other products they have to offer.
