Rom&nd Better Than Palette Review
This post contains affiliate links. Product provided by Jolse.
A few months ago, I set out on a nearly impossible mission - to find a cool toned kbeauty eyeshadow palette with some grays in it. Back in the 1990s, when I was just a kid, my mom mostly used gray and blue eyeshadows, and I guess I was feeling nostalgic. I combed through the entire Jolse eye makeup section and found one option. ONE!
Rom&nd Better Than Palette is available in 8 variations on Jolse; mine is 04 Dusty Fog Garden. The palettes include ten shades in matte and / or glittery finishes for a variety of looks. Dusty Fog Garden features winter-cool tones (but to me they still look a bit on the warm side, to be honest).
I’m far from being an eye shadow pro (or any makeup pro, for that matter). Most days, I only use browcara and mascara with a bit of translucent powder. However, lately I’ve been finding joy in playing with more elaborate makeup, especially when filming youtube videos, so I wanted to try more Rom&nd products since I already like all of their lip offerings
Better Than Pallette is well made and works for me. There’s minimal fallout and the colors are easy to layer and blend, even for an amateur like me. They might not be the most vivid / pigmented, but I gravitate toward a natural look as a general rule. The brand makes sure to point out that their palettes are more versatile in their brightness ranges than the competitors, but I am not sure I notice that much of a difference.
I have hooded eyes with oily lids and these shadows stay put very well. I rarely spend more than 5-6 hours with eye makeup on, and have no rolling or creasing during that time. Not sure how this would perform if I went clubbing all night, but I don’t really do that. I’m a boring homebody who just wants a warm bath and a good book on a Friday night.
Another win from Rom&nd. I love this brand and can’t wait to try more of their products.
