As many of you may know, earlier this year I had the pleasure of being one of seven models featured in Undone Beauty‘s launch campaign. If you’re unfamiliar, Undone Beauty is a new Amazon-exclusive affordable beauty brand that is cruelty-free and vegan (with one product exception that I explain below). Although I was compensated for the photoshoot, any product review or promotion is purely editorial.
After the line launched, the Undone Beauty team graciously sent over the entire line for me, as well as my mom, and we’ve enjoyed diving into such an innovative and exciting new brand. I’ve received so many questions on social media about my thoughts thus far, so I’ve compiled a comprehensive review of each and every product currently available in this post. All products individually are $18 or less, with the majority of the products available for $8 or less. Undone Beauty is like the affordable cousin of Glossier and Milk Makeup, but for people who live a real life.
The products are arranged in order from my most frequently used to least used and overall, the products are of great quality and an exceptional value. There isn’t a “bad” product in the bunch, just a couple that isn’t what I typically reach for.
If there’s a detail that I left out, please let me know in the comments below!
8Curator Eye Palettes, $14
The Curator Eye Palettes are eight-pan eyeshadow palettes with a formula that can be used wet or dry. These eyeshadow palettes are the only product in the Undone Beauty line that is not vegan, due to the use of carmine as opposed to various red dyes. These palettes are, however, cruelty-free. If you’re not familiar with how or why brands still choose to use carmine instead of dyes, YouTuber jenluvsreviews has a very thorough breakdown on this issue that impacts the beauty industry, not just this specific brand.
These palettes are such a breath of fresh air in a crowded landscape of neutral-themed palettes. I’m so excited to see a green eyeshadow in every palette (my favorite shade to wear) and unique color combinations in such a small palette size. There are a few shadow textures, including satin, metallic, and a chunkier glitter, though it should be noted that there are no matte shades in any palette. Each palette contains 0.23oz of powder.
How I Use It
It has been a delight to use and experiment with these shadow palettes. As Undone Beauty is a brand that focuses on an effortless approach to beauty, it should be noted that these shadows apply as well, if not better, with your finger. I’ve gotten the most wear out of the Soft palette due to the combination of rose gold, taupe, and green shadows, though I have certainly used all three palettes to create one look. These shades are surprisingly pigmented, so be sure to use a lighter touch with some shades, especially the white appearing shadows at the front of the palette.
