As you know your eyes are your window to the world and at this time they are often the only part of your face that the world is seeing. If you are following Covid-19 restrictions then you are wearing a mask when among other people. What shows but your eyes and a bit of your cheeks. Why not use an eyeshadow palette that looks beautiful while helping the world be a cleaner place? Shared Planet is your answer.
Inspired by the reflective, cool, icy hues of the Arctic, Shared Planet’s Polar Bear Eyeshadow combines a selection of 12 richly pigmented shades ranging from brilliant violets and diamond blues to stunning metallic silver to rich black.
You can find the palette alone or the collection that also has 2 lipglosses. Either way you’ll love the look.
CUB: matte soft fleshy nude
ICEY: shimmering soft pink
PRISM: metalized bronze
POLAR: illuminating holographic iced white
FROSTED: intense sparkling amethyst
CHILLY: rich matte smoky grey
SUBZERO: matte brown with a purple undertone
AVALANCHE: metalized brilliant aqua marine
GLACIER: shimmering vibrant sapphire blue
AURORA: metallic reddish brown
ARCTIC: rich metalized deep silver
BLACK ICE: matte ultra-saturated intense black
As you can tell by Shared Planet’s description of the shadows the palette has a little of every type of finish. All work well though some are more powdery than others. I’ve found quite a few combinations that I really like together. With the very sparkly ones like Arctic and Polar I try to use those shades to brighten a look. I’ll wear those two together when I’m being daring.
In this grouping my favorites are Icey and Avalanche. Avalanche can look less teal and more denim depending on your combination. Icey is the most neutral shade.
With this group Glacier and Prism are my favorites. Glacier is a darker blue on me and Prism is a gorgeous bronze. Polar shows us as a shimmery white on me but is more of an accent than a color.
These are the ultimate smokey eye look. While Frosted is described as an amethyst if you rub it on you’ll lose that tone so my advice with Frosted and the others is to pat them on. And to use an eyeshadow primer with these eyeshadows.
Shared Planet is a vegan, cruelty-free, 100% clean line. They make a point of they’d never use child labor which isn’t a statement I’ve seen before but I’m impressed with. Truly sharing our planet starts with giving back to it. We want our customers to know that supporting Shared Planet means more than just receiving high-quality cosmetics, which is why we donate 10% of all proceeds from our cosmetics to Panthera and Polar Bears International, and other select global charities involved in protecting at risk animals and their habitats.
