Mehron Paradise Aquacolor Palettes

While The Makeup Show gave me the opportunity to check out many amazing and well-known brands, what had me most excited was being able to see and purchase products from smaller brands that cater to the professional artist. Mehron was definitely one of those brands that I could not wait to test drive.


While scanning all of Mehron’s offerings at the show, my vision tunneled as my peepers spotted the Mehron Paradise AQ 8 Color Palette. I have seen so many amazing reviews for these palettes that I felt I was personally acquainted with them. I skipped the courting phase and eagerly snatched up 3 different color varieties (pastel, tropical, metallic) and whipped out my card faster than you can say charge it.


The first one up for review is Metallic, a palette that houses 8 sparkling metallic shades ranging from red to silver to gold.


Mehron Aquacolor is a type of water-activated pancake makeup. Used for face and body-painting, the aquacolors only require that you wet your brush and dip it into the pan to activate the rich, creamy color that doesn't fade, crease, or appear dull. Once applied, the colors are both vibrant and long lasting. They don't cake up or crumble like some bases tend to do. To me these are the perfect eyeshadow base!


Enough talk, here are the swatches!


Definitely loving these way much. I am working on swatches of both Tropical and Pastel palettes. Until then, tell me what highly anticipated items you recently snagged that met your expectations?

Those are some really great colors. Bold is so great to wear. I actually snagged the Stila Cherish palette for 10.00 from Sephora and was not disappointed. Simply gorgeous bold rich colors. I am so happy with that purchase and for 10.00 what a steal!!!
