[REVIEW+SWATCH]: SASC PERFECT EYE & FACE PALETTE TRULY ‘MAZING X TYNA KANNA MIRDAD

Nowadays, local beauty brands are really hit the market both for makeup as well as skincare. They keep innovated and always bring something new and different to the market. SASC is one of those among local beauty brands that now people talk about.

SASC PERFECT EYE & FACE PALETTE

I’m actually no someone who is devoted to makeup, but I sometimes can’t resist my eyes from face palette. And yes, it happened when knowing SASC launched their very first Perfect Eye & Face Palette and I feel like I have to own it. This time SASC is collaborated with 3 influencers as their muse in creating the Perfect Eye & Face Palette. These 3 palettes are ideals for all skin tone as they created each differently, all you have to do is just choose which shades of palette that will suit you best. Since I have medium skin tone, I chose Truly ‘Mazing X Tyna Kanna Mirdad Perfect Eye & Face Palette, besides I have fallen in love with the Not Shy blush since the first swatch.



PACKAGING
The palette is housed in rose gold long pan. There’s a mica plastic inside which printed with details of the palette and each functions with the purpose to give an ease to those who have just learnt about makeup. We don’t have to worry if we’re losing the mica plastic as the details of the palette also stick at the back body of the pan.



Speaking of the size, it’s quite big than I thought. Even so, this palette has the perfect size of the mirror inside that you can see your entire face at once applying the product. I’m not pretty sure if it’s travel friendly as I feel the palette doesn’t lock firmly. Once the palette is locked, I press each sides of the palette and I felt on the middle part of the palette is not as firmed as the other sides. Hence an extra care packing is needed if we go travelling with this palette.

This palette also comes with nude cardboard with details ingredients at the back of this. When you open the cardboard, there’s also a warm greeting from Tyna Mirdad regarding this palette.  





SWATCH
This palette weights for 32 grams and consists of 2 blushes, 2 highlighters, 1 eyeshadow and 1 eye/face contour & bronzer. See below for a breakdown of all six shades.

BLUSHES

Sweet Pot (Blush - 4.7gr) : an orange-y or peach color with matte finish. I actually not a fan of using single color of peach blush as I feel it doesn’t give fresh look on my skin.
Not Shy (Blush – 5.7gr) : a shimmer cool pink and this is my favorite shade from the entire palette.

HIGHLIGHTERS

Aquarius (Highlighter – 4.5gr) : a golden highlight with pearly finish. A little goes a long way with this creamy texture.
On Fleek (Highlighter – 5.2gr) : a bright sand with luminous finish. This is not my favorite highlighter since I need to take the product more and more until the color is showing up.

LEFT : EYESHADOW
RIGHT : EYE/FACE CONTOUR & BRONZER

Truly ‘Mazing (Eyeshadow – 5.2gr) : this is a pretty brown with shimmery finish of touch. It’s just a great single eyeshadow to apply all over the lid and no fallout. I keep using this whenever I want to have simple look for a day.
Caffeine (Eye/Face Contour & Bronzer – 6.7gr) : A soft warm brown. I don’t usually use contour/bronzer as it’s a bit tricky for me. I more like to use it on the out corner of my eye to give a gradation eye look.



FORMULA/PIGMENTATION
This palette offered different formulation for each shades, some are smooth and others are creamy. The blushes and contour/bronzer tend to be more powdery, while for the highlighter (Aquarius) and eyeshadow have creamy texture. While On Fleek highlighter, has undefined texture, it’s not either soft nor creamy.

Each shades of the palette are saturated with pigments, except for On Fleek highlighter. I don’t know if it’s because of the hard texture that affect the this color is somehow hard to show up, so I need to have extra application until the color is truly pop out. However, all is blend easily and buildable, so you can adjust your looks from natural day makeup to glam night makeup look.

As for the staying power, this can last until 8 hours with no retouch. An exception for the eyeshadow as the color is slowly to fade away. But it’s still good tho'.

 



FINAL THOUGHT

Overall, I really enjoy myself using this palette and I literally using this palette like almost everyday. In creating my everyday look, I love to use shades Not Shy, Aquarius and Truly ‘Mazing. I like how all the colors are easily to blend and you can build the color as bold as you want for the intensity.

My only concern is just for the packaging, if only SASC Perfect Eye & Face Palette come with more firm closure. This palette is actually good for travelling but yet we need to put extra care once travel with this.

This palette is paraben-free, cruelty-free and Halal Certified. It retails for IDR 375,000 and is available online at SASC Official Store, Sociolla and some market places. Or if you want to purchase offline, you just can visit The Goods Dept. Thank you for your reading, until next time :)
