Honeybee Gardens Party Girl Eye Shadow Palette - pics, swatches, review

Hello, Beautiful!

I have a colorful shadow palette to share with you in this post from the brand Honeybee Gardens - and on a personal note, I like that this brand is run out of West Reading, PA because I grew up not far from there in Pottstown, PA. I have their Party Girl Eye Shadow Palette, which has four matte shades: Velour, Mojito, Cupcake, and Shipwreck - plus a duo-ended shadow brush.. Check out my full review, including all the product info, after the pics!

Honeybee Gardens Party Girl Eye Shadow Palette Info & Review:
Cost/Availability: $29.99 (0.045 oz each shadow; 4 shadows in palette). Available on the Honeybee Gardens website.
My Rating: 4 out of 5 Kisses

Party girls never take life too seriously. Life's a beach, so celebrate in bold, trendy style. Honeybee Gardens' pigment-rich palette of vivid shades will turn any shrinking violet into a ravishing beauty. Bee the life of the party!

This four shade collection comes in a recyclable, magnetic palette and includes a dual-ended sponge/brush bamboo applicator which is eco-friendly and cruelty free.

Colors in this palette:
  • Velour - a matte vibrant purple
  • Mojito - a matte pastel teal green
  • Cupcake - a matte light pink
  • Shipwreck - a matte ink blue/navy blue
The shade Cupcake had the least pigmentation out of the four shades, but it still has nice pigmentation. The other three shades just have very nice pigmentation. The shade Shipwreck comes off more as a navy blue instead of a vibrant blue. For the pics showing the shadows over primer, I used Too Faced Shadow Insurance. They really pop over a primer!

They have a nice quality and pigmentation to them, but I do think $29.99 for four shades is a bit steep. Yes, you do get a duo-ended brush, but not sure it's the best investment when you consider other palettes like the Urban Decay original Naked or Naked 2 palettes which are $52 each and include 12 shadows, with each shadow being 0.05 oz (more product per shadow than the Honeybee Gardens at 0.045 oz). It makes each Honeybee Garden shadow $7.49 - while each Urban Decay shadow in the Naked or Naked 2 palette is $4.33. 

Price point aside - because I'm sure there will be sales and coupon codes you can use at Honeybee Gardens - the quality is nice and the colors are vivid and unique in the fact that it's hard to find bold, vivid, richly pigmented matte colors. 

I like the shadow quality, the colors, and the performance but not a big fan of the price. Still, I'd recommend checking them out - maybe even some of their single mineral shadows!
