Focallure Limited Edition Twilight Eyeshadow Palette: Review, Swatches, Price and FOTD




After getting my hands on the Beauty Glazed Mars Palette which was last reviewed on my blog, I was excited to try more such palettes. So I did a bit of research on the gram and google offcourse and landed on this Focallure Twilight Palette which is a limited edition. This is my first purchase from this brand although I had heard about it earlier.

Price : INR 574/- (from Ali Express)
The same is being sold anywhere from 1000 - 1600 by instagram sellers!

The packaging is sturdy with a huge mirror. It houses 18 square pans of matte and foil eyeshadows. It has a magnetic closure and is very travel friendly.

Looks Created Using Focallure Twilight Palette
Rather than one, I've tried to create three different looks from this palette to give a better idea to you lovelies. While one is an everyday warm toned matte eyelook, the other two are shimmery party eyelooks.
Hope you all will like them!



 My Take
  • The palette shows ingredient list.
  • It is cruelty free.
  • The foil shadows are nicely pigmented.
  • Few matte shades are packed with pigments too.
  • Matte shadows have fall-out issues. 
  • Periwinkle, one of the most beautiful and unique eyeshadow of this palette just refuses to pack o the lid easily.
  • The two dark shades (Magic and Chili) are poorly pigmented. These kind of shadows are importatnt in any palette for intensifying an eyelook or for the smokey eye. But they are dud here.
  • Although the palette has 18 eyeshadows, it majorly lacks a good highlighting shade for the brow bone and the inner corners.
Over All Thoughts
Focallure Twilight 18 eyeshadow palette was another ali express makeup find after the Beauty Glazed Mars palette. Honestly speaking I was a little skeptical about Ali express beauty products and how would they fair on my skin. But having seen them so much on the instagram and reading reviews of them nationally and internationally, I gathered courage to dive in. So far both the palettes have faired well, they have provided ingredient list
Given the price of the palette and the fabulous packaging, one can really not complain much. It has a beautiful amalgamation of matte, satin and foil shadows. The palette has it's own hits and misses. While few eyeshadows are bomb and instant love, the one's required to smoke out are pretty dud.
All in all, this is a good palette for beginners and for foil shadow enthusiasts. You might need a good matte black and a highlighting eyeshadow separately to create or complete your looks.
