Rob Scheppy Eye Palette for ‘Tini Beauty review and swatches

Even if you haven’t yet heard of Rob Scheppy, I am sure you have seen his work – he is the go-to make up artist for the Kardashians, among other famous women. Rob teamed up with ‘Tini Beauty, the cocktail-inspired cosmetics line, and created his own Eye Shadow Palette ($39.50).

The Rob Scheppy for ‘Tini Beauty eye shadow palette is slim, lightweight, and great for travel. It has eight eyeshadows including four matte shades and four shimmery shades. The colors are meant to ‘cocktail’, meaning to either work by themselves or else in combination. Each top row matte shade coordinates perfectly with the shimmer shade directly underneath, making four ‘pairs’. (received for review)

The first pairing is White Russian, a creamy off white matte, and Pearl Fizz, a pearly shimmer. Together, along with some thick black eyeliner, they make a mod neutral eye. The second pairing is Cinnamon-tini, a matte terra-cotta, and Rose Champagne, a peachy bronze shimmer.  I like this color combination and Cinnamon-tini in particular is a winner, a rather unusual shade that is nicely creamy for a matte eyeshadow. I have some issues with shimmer fallout when I wear Rose Champagne and find it’s best used sparingly along with a primer to keep it in place.

The third dynamic duo is Pavlova, a matte taupe, and Cuba Libre, a light cola shimmer. Pavlova is a great neutral that makes for a darn near perfect wash. Cuba Libre is really pretty, with striking golden shimmer. I definitely need to use this shade sparingly with primer to avoid fallout. The final shades are Blackout, a matte black, and Bella Notte, a shimmery charcoal grey. Blackout is a standard matte black that sheers out deep grey. Bella Notte has silver shimmer and I imagine this paired with Blackout is what Scheppy uses for Kim Kardashian’s smokey eye look.

Overall, this is a very nice palette especially for travel. The neutral shades make it versatile, while Cinnamon-tini and Blackout provide bolder color and drama. The matte shades are blendable, and while the shimmer shades can get a little messy, they will stay put with some eye primer.
