Breena Beauty is one of a well-known Malaysian beauty brands that are loved by Malaysians, especially their liquid matte lipsticks called Velvetcremes and also their blending sponges known as the blending pearls. When they finally launched their first ever palette called the Wanderlust palette together with their six new shades of Velvetcreme, everybody went crazy including me. I knew I had to get their palette. This palette is made of fifteen warm neutral shades and claims suitable for everyday use or for any occasions and it retails at RM99.00.

Packaging: I liked the packaging as It was neat and minimalistic. The size is fair and it can be easily stored and carried. The material of the packaging is cardboard. Many beauty brands have adopted this sorta cardboard packaging which is a need trend now I guess. It has a full- sized mirror which is absolutely convenient.
Impression: So, this palette is made of warm neutral shades. The names of shades are travel themed as the palette itself is named ‘Wanderlust’. Creative! When I first got this palette, I swatched it at my fingertips. The colours were pigmented and with just even with one stroke using my fingertips, the shades sticked so well on my fingertips. However, when I used my eye brushes and applied it on my eye lids, it wasn’t immediately pigmented but is definitely buildable which makes it a perfect palette for beginners who have just started exploring eyeshadows. It doesn’t leave a patch of pigment on your eyelids when you first apply it with your brush but if you build it slowly several times, it gets pigmented eventually. The shades are absolutely suitable for your everyday look as they are too wild and too grand thus, thus suitable for nude makeup look or ‘no makeup’ makeup look. Its also an ideal palette to learn putting on eyeshadows and to practice your eyeshadow looks. The texture of both the mattes and shimmers are soft, smooth and not clumpy. There weren’t any fallouts. I love the fact that the shades compliment each other and you can make a lot of looks using this palette. My favourite shades are Fudge (deep brown) and Sand (khaki brown) because these shades are quite rare and I haven’t not seen much shades similar to this in other palette from other brands. I experimented by applying these shadows with and without eyeshadow primer and I was impressed with the fact that both application was easily blendable, pigmented, lasted longer and there was no crease.
What I don’t like about this product: To be honest I didn’t see anything I dislike.
VERDICT: I guess y’all know my verdict already. I’m definitely buying these palette again. The shades are so suitable for everyday look as well as glam look. Buildable and definitely a holy grail for those who love neutral and soft eye makeup.
