Coloured Raine Queen of Hearts Eyeshadow Palette ($50) is a limited edition 12 pan palette that contains 6 matte and 6 foil eyeshadow shades.

It is made in the USA; cruelty free and all shades are vegan free with the exception of Ladyship which contains Carmine so let's just say the palette is vegan friendly.

The palette is incredible quality - the shades are creamy and pigmented - very easy to build up and use. Keep in mind the only 3 shades that I had a slight issue with was Princess, Heir and Ladyship. You can see more of what I mean in the video.

  • Princess:I had to build up the shade but it was fine once I did
  • Heir: Again, I had to build up the shade but it was fine once I did
  • Ladyship: the only shade that isn't vegan free as it contains Carmine felt gritty when swatching. I did wear this on my eyes and it performed much better than I expected given the way the swatch felt.

Overall: I ADORE this palette. There aren't too many products that I normally say you have to get but you have to get this palette. It's perfect for creating different day and night looks and the quality of the shadows are worth the price tag.

Availability: Only available on ColouredRaine.com for $50 plus shipping - you can find coupon codes online that will normally knock off 10% of your order total
