Olivia Palermo is just so dang pretty. Like, I can’t even look at her. I would cut a bitch for those cheekbones. I digress. When I saw her collection with Ciaté on Sephora’s website, it looked so classy, I couldn’t resist.
First, let’s talk packaging. It’s just as pretty in person as it looks online. It is feminine and compact but still has a weight to it that makes it feel a bit luxurious.
I chose the Cheekbone Cheat Blush/Bronzer duo in Bluff Point. I love blush/bronzer duos and this was no exception. The bronzer is a great shade for my skin tone and I’m always a fan of dusty pink blushes. It’s nicely pigmented as well. I think the blush has a bit more color payoff than the bronzer but I don’t think this is a deal breaker. In fact, I tend to go ham with bronzer so I appreciate that this takes a bit of building up.
The Satin Kiss lipsticks are lovely as well. Adorable packaging and beautiful colors. I chose the shades Velveteen (a beautiful classic red) and Truffle (soft pink nude). These are very creamy and apply smoothly. They have a satin finish as the name would suggest and I think the colors are very flattering. Truffle is the nude most suited for me but they have a couple other nude shades available as well.
Finally, my favorite item from the bunch, the Smokey Suedes Eyeshadow Palette. The colors in this are absolutely beautiful, the shadows are creamy and blendable and have incredible color payoff. I am really impressed. I’m not sure what I was expecting but this exceeded my expectations. Not much more to say, really.
Have you tried anything from this collection? What other Ciaté products should I try?
