Question of the Week: What’s the most expensive cruelty free eye shadow palette you own, and is it worth it?
Please forgive my well-loved, not-pristine eyeshadow palette pic above! I have a lot of cruelty free makeup palettes, and one of my faves, the Viseart Theory II Minx palette ($45), is not necessarily more expensive, but there are far fewer shades than your standard Too Faced or Urban Decay palette. This one has six shades and the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette (as an example) has 16 shades for $49. I think there’s more shadow in each Viseart pan, which is nice, but really the formula is just so freaking bold, buttery and generally beautiful, that it’s worth every penny to me, regardless of size! It’s also a really good travel-sized palette. Honestly, the copper shade in the Minx palette is worth the price of admission alone to me!
The larger Viseart palettes are definitely more expensive than your standard palette from Sephora (they are $80 for twelve shades). As I’m writing this post, I’m thinking I need to treat myself and buy one…but I really need to calm down, because I gotta save money for my wedding this October!
