Rivaj UK 12 Pro Color Velvet Palette - Review & Swatches

Hey loves, Hows your weekend going!? Today I have another eye shadow palette review for you guys!
I bought this palette on a whim while I was shopping in a local market one day. The colorful card board packaging appealed me in first glance and when I opened the palette I got stunned with the vibrancy and brightness of the colors. So I thought why not give it a try and post about it on my blog :)

Product Description: Once these stunning velvet eye shadows touch your lids, you won't believe your eyes! This formula's texture is so soft and velvety; it sweeps over the eyelids in one smooth motion. Available in 05 different color combinations.

Packaging:  The packaging of this palette reminds me of Sleek Eye shadow Palettes! This 12 color palette comes in a sturdy black hard plastic casing with brand logo on top. It has got a full size mirror inside to look while doing the makeup. The eye shadow palette also contains a dual-ended sponge applicator, but I prefer brushes for applying my eye shadows.Lid closes pretty tight which makes it perfect for travelling!
My Views: Rivaj UK 12 Pro Color Velvet Palette contains 12 beautiful shades that you need to create your everyday eye makeup looks. It's a combination of bold, neutral and smokey shades which can help in creating different looks, from party looks, intense looks, neutral looks, day makeup looks etc. All shades are shimmery but they are not glittery, they are super soft and not chalky.Shimmery shades are nicely pigmented and are fairly easy to blend together. 

     With this palette you can create a soft day time look and by increasing the intensity you can create stronger night-time smoky eyes. I am really impressed with the quality of the shadows. They are quite creamy and rich. The velvety texture is beautiful and unique.You will need to wear a primer with these shadows for them to last throughout the day
The eye shadows glides on to my eyelids smoothly. I don’t have any problems picking it up with any of my eye shadow brushes. It also blends easily. There are some fallouts but nothing really major or upsetting. You can always avoid this by tapping off the excess prior to applying them onto your eyelids. The pigmentation is decent enough for everyday wear.As far as the staying power is concerned, these lasted on my lids for more than 4 hours with primer underneath, which I think, is a pretty decent wear time for a palette with such an affordable price tag!  

*Application Tip: I would suggest applying these shades with a damp brush for better pigmentation and color payoff.

My Recommendation: I’m quite content with the Rivaj UK 12 Pro Color Velvet Palette and would highly recommend it to the beginners who are looking for locally available budget friendly options with decent quality!

Price & Availability: The price of the product is 345/- PKR. This palette can be purchased from Rivaj UK counters nationwide.You can also order it online from the Official Website of Rivaj UK Cosmetics here.
