Product | “A little bit natural and a little bit fun, fierce, and Frankie” Allure Palette, Frankie Rose Cosmetics
Pigmentation | The pigmentation of these shadows are good. It takes several swipes of a fluffy brush to get enough color to swatch. The pigment sticks to the skin okay but brushes off easily. The better quality shadows of this 12 shadow palette are Buttercup, Wink, Grape, Sweet and Supreme.
Application | The pigmentation of the eyeshadows are thin and slightly dusty so that it doesn’t give an opaque coverage without a primer. The shimmer shades have an okay playtime and can be improved with a stiffer brush. However, once on the skin the pigment blends very well.
Texture | The shadows in this palette are satin, matte, shimmer and sparkle finish. The shadows are very smooth and swatch well and the sparkle shades don’t flake much. The texture of these shadows are very consistent and share an overall quality.
Longevity | I swatched all 12 shadows in the Allure Professional series Allure palette on my skin and wore for several hours. I also applied to my skin as regular makeup usage and wore for several hours. I found that the shades blend very all together, however without a primer the eyeshadows tend to fade after 3 hours after 4 tests.

Overall | The Allure palette has a great range of colors from tans to peaches to purples to blues all in one 12 shadow pro palette. I like the range of shades and all the different finishes available in one palette. The colors perform well but to get the best performance out of these shadows, I would suggest the use of a primer before application. This palette is part of a Professional Series and I believe this is a great product for a pro to have in their kit, especially to save space. The palette is thin and compact and can be easily carried in a medium size purse and/or makeup bag.
