Saucebox Cosmetics Etude matte palette


 One of the best things about travelling overseas for work is the brands and products you pick up along the way.  We know a lot of the products we feature may be tricky to get hold of overseas so thought we would feature Saucebox. Based in the U.S but with distributors in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UAE and South Africa. Check out their website to view stores. They also ship internationally so Europe don't panic! We recently discovered Saucebox cosmetics and particularly liked their Etude palette. Filled with eight totally matte neutral shades.


 



The palette is magnetic so the shades are interchangeable. The shades are in large pans also so tons of product.
Matte shades are notoriously hard to blend. These shades blended well although the black shade took a little more work. It blended but needed to be built up a little more to get a thoroughly black finish. I found the black shade smelt strange too but maybe that's just my weird overly sensitive nose!


 
These colours are great on their own however we loved to use these shades through the socket to create a natural contour. Some of these colours are great to use through the brow also.

Not a cheap palette at $50.00 (around £30.00) and shipping costs also but a great addition to any kit, especially for matte lovers.
