Profusion Cosmetics Bare Eyes Palette Review

Profusion Cosmetics has done an amazing job at improving and recreating their brand since I first discovered them three years ago. In my initial review of the brand, I didn’t really like anything I had tried. They must’ve taken all the negative feedback into consideration because I am continually blown away by the quality of their products since then. This Bare Eyes Palette, for example, became a favorite no more than 10 minutes after opening it!

Profusion products can mostly be found in Target, as well as on the brand website. All of their products are extremely affordable and this one is only $7!! It comes in a metal case that is very sturdy and safe for travel. There’s a generous sized mirror on the inside, along with a double-ended brush. Usually I’d just take the brush out of palettes like this, but Profusion brushes are always useful.

The brush shapes are so unique and apply shadow beautifully. The brush included in this palette has a small shader brush on one end with a slightly tapered blending brush on the other. As you might have seen in my recent tutorial, I was able to (almost) get an entire look using just this palette and the brush provided. How often does that ever happen??
Out of the ten shadows included in the palette, only three are shimmer and the rest are matte. The shades shown in the swatch picture below are: Sugar, Celestial, Silky, Heavenly, Zing, Beam, Glitter Rock, Clever, Gallant, and Doll. Celestial, Beam, and Glitter Rock are the three shimmers. Unfortunately, they’re also the most disappointing shades in this palette. They’re very dry and provide almost zero pigmentation. They’re basically a complete waste.

The other seven mattes shades, however, are completely amazing. A lot of companies seem to have a hard time providing lighter shades like Sugar and Silky that are pigmented enough to do anything, but these are perfect. The colors do lean more towards the warm side, but there are a few pops of cool-tones in Clever and Gallant.
Between the price, packaging, pigmentation, and shade range I think this is such a good palette. Even with the three shimmer shades out of the question, it’s still able to provide something simple for everyday wear while also allowing enough versatility to create extremely light to medium dark looks.

It has about average staying power, only slightly fading after about seven to eight hours of wear with a primer. The lighter shades like Sugar and Silky do fade faster than the darker shades, which is pretty standard. The formula is easy to apply and blends out effortlessly without worrying about the colors muddying together. If you can find this palette, I definitely recommend picking it up. It’s been a staple in my current everyday makeup routine!
