To make your eyes pop even more, line your lids with Cynthia Rowley Beauty Liquid Liner.

Birchbox Breakdown

Talk about a plum assignment. Cynthia Rowley’s exclusive eye shadow palette contains five lustrous shades to take you from day to night—and everywhere in between. The design guru’s luxe-yet-modern color lineup comes in extrasleek packaging inspired by her childhood nickname—Slim.

How it Works

One palette, innumerable color combos. The shades are designed to work in tandem to create a sultry layered look. Play around with five shades: Clove, a deep matte brown; Sugarplum, a velvety taupe; Patina, a gold-speckled plum; Mink, a rich light brown; and Champagne, a shimmery gold highlight. The case has a built-in mirror for easy application and features a Cynthia Rowley floral runway print—so it’ll look just as good on your eyes as it will sticking out of your makeup bag.

How to Use

Each hue from the palette makes a big statement worn alone, or in combination with the other colors. Pro tip: sweep the Champagne shade over cheeks, nose, and brow bones for an all-over glow.

High quality and so smooth!
Purchased

Love Cynthia Rowley products! This pallette is very versitile and goes great with many skin tones. Having brown skin I was worried that the pallette would be too light, but it completments my skin tone perfectly. The video on the website was a great way to see it on someone with similar skin color before buying it! The color is super pigmented and goes on smooth.

Love the Color Palette
Purchased

I am obsessed with the plum color. It makes my green eyes pop. Additionally, the other neutral colors are prefect to wear everyday. The only downfall is that the color fades after a long day.

Warning: Major Fallout
Purchased

I really wanted to love this palette. In person, the colors are very very pretty. However, colors 2 and 4 are very similar and virtually indistinguishable on the eyelid. Color goes on sheer but builds adequately. I did expect a better color payoff myself. My main complaint is the fallout--wow. It is bad. I use a nice brush and I still have to sweep under my eyes with a makeup remover pad to clean up afterwards. I also like to line my lower lid with shadow but the brown on this one wears off very quickly when I use it that way.

I will use this up but I will not be purchasing any more Cynthia Rowley palettes.

Beautiful Pigmented Colors

I received this palette in the GoingFresh bonus pack. This is my current favorite eyeshadow palette. The palette itself feels very high quality. It has good weight and a good sized mirror on the top. The colors are all very pigmented and very fall. I generally don't take the time to do much with my eye makeup beyond mascara, but I have been wanting to use these colors everyday. I have not tried the shadow without primer, but with, the shadow stays place all day. This has made me want to try out some of Cynthia Rowley's other eyeshadows.

I wouldn't recommend this.
Purchased

+ Packaging is pretty
+ Colors are bright, no primer needed
+ Shimmery cream colored shadow can be used as a highlight

- Colors are much darker in person. They are too harsh for my fair/light skin tone, especially for day time wear.
- Speckled gold and purple color mixes into a matte burgundy color.
- Powder becomes loose once it's on the brush and leaves particles underneath your eyes more easily than other eyeshadows.
- Doesn't come with an applicator brush - really?!

Great eye palette

I love the sexy, shimmery neutrals in this palette. They go on so soft and the colors spread and blend well. I also noticed there was no creasing and the color stayed vibrant and looking freshly-applied for my whole 10-hour work shift. Very happy with this palette!

My BEST purchase so far!
Purchased

This is the best eye shadow I have ever used. It goes on well. It stays on all day. It blends well too. The colors are the best shades. I will buy this set again once I run out.

very pigmented
Purchased

This palette surprised me. The colors are very pigmented which is great but the powder is very fine and messy. In fact my first one came broken-of course Birchbox top-notch customer service fixed that for me. I ended up giving to my daughter who loves.
