I’m excited that Gucci Westman, the no makeup, makeup guru, has, again, expanded her makeup line. First, her line included lots of makeup sticks. For example, she has foundation, blush, contour, and highlighter sticks. Furthermore, these Westman Atelier Makeup Sticks include skincare ingredients. Even more, the Atelier sticks, streamlined makeup, are easy to use. In addition, the sticks are portable. For one thing, the stick packaging uses magnetic closures, so the lids won’t fall off in your handbag. Moreover, Gucci Westman is makeup artist to the stars. As a result, they all love to wear her makeup! More Recently, Gucci Released her first lipstick, Lip Suede Compact, four lipstick shades in one compact. Now, the only thing that was missing from her line was eyeshadow. Not any More!!!! The Westman Atelier Eyeshadow Pods, just released, come in two color Palettes.
One palette, Les Jours, is for day. The other palette, Les Nuits, is for night!
You can find the Westman Atelier Eyeshadow Pods, in both Les Jours, and Les Nuits, on the Violette Grey Website, Goop, Net a Porter, and on the Gucci Westman Atelier Website. Moreover, the Eye Pods (o.8 oz./ 2.4g) cost $88.
The Westman Atelier Eyeshadow Pods Packaging
First of all, the pod palettes come in a narrow box, that looks like a European box of chocolates. Also, the packaging pods are unique. In this way, these eyeshadow palettes are set apart from an eyeshadow palette in a compact!
The reason is, each shadow comes in a pod. Three pods create the palette. One is the core shade. Two is the accent shade. And, three is the highlighter. Each of these pods are different colors. In this way, you can differentiate between the shades.
Furthermore, each pod has a twist on, twist off lid. More important, it is really necessary that the lid is tightly closed. Therefore, you twist the lid until you hear a snap. Then, you can be certain the pod is tightly closed.
Above all, the three pods are magnetized. Therefore, you can stack them, and they will stick together. And, they easily will pull apart.
The Westman Atelier Eyeshadow Pods Formula
To begin with, Gucci Westman is all about your skin. Therefore, her makeup makes your skin look like skin, but better. Moreover, her clean, vegan beauty is cruelty free.
Additionally, Gucci designed these velvety cream-powder hybrid shadows for three characteristics. First, they feel comfortable on the skin. Next, they blend easily. And, third, they have rich color payoff.
Silky emollients from coconut oil, and fatty acids replace silicone. In this way, the shadows still have slip and blendability.
Even more, featherweight rice and plant extracts give you a velvety smooth application, which feels like a second-skin.
Then unique oil-gel suspension system binds the pigments together. As a result, they have an elastic-cushiony sensation and a luminous melting finish.
In a way, you could describe the formula as feeling like playdough. Finally, the creamy formula has great staying power.
The Westman Atelier Eyeshadow Pods Palette Shades
Again, there are three eyeshadow pods in each palette. First, there is a Core shade. You would use the Core shade as your eyeshadow base. Also, you could wear this shade as your smudgy liner. In addition, each palette includes one Accent color. This accent shade is your pop of color. Last, there is a highlighter in each palette. Use the highlighter to brighten your eyelids. Also, use this shade in the inner corners of your eyes, and on your brow bones.
First of all, the Les Jours Palette is perfect to use as your daytime look.
First, Neige, a snow white shade, has an iridescent finish. Neige is a Highlighter. You can wear Neige to highlight and brighten your eyes. I like Neige on the inner corners of your eyes.
Next, Chocolat, a rich brown shade, has a luminous finish. Wear this rich brown shade on the outer corners of your eyes. Also, wear it to line your lower lash line. I also like this shade in the crease.
Third, Tabac, a warm bronze shade, has a luminous finish. Tabac is a very subtle shade. it will give you an easy look. Wear it all over your eyelids. Also, wear it in your crease. I would consider Tabac to be your Accent shade. Therefore, Tabac is. your pop of color. You can also smudge Tabac on your lower lash line.
Second, the Les Nuits Palette is your nighttime look.
First, Champagne, a pink shade , has an iridescent finish. Moreover, Champagne is your highlighter shade. Therefore, wear Champagne to highlight and brighten your eyes. Wear it on the inner corners of your eyes. Also, wear this Champagne pink shade to highlight your brow bones.
Second, Vin Rouge, a warm burgundy shade, has a luminous finish. This warm burgundy shade is your accent color. Therefore, wear it on your eyelids. Also, you can use it to line your lower lash line. Finally, wear it in your crease.
Finally, Noir, an inky black shade, has a luminous finish. Noir is your Core shade. Wear it to line your lower lash line. Also wear it on the outer corners of your eyes.
My Final Thoughts On The Gucci Westman Atelier Eyeshadow Pods…..
To begin with, these shadows are very translucent. However, you can layer them to create a more opaque shade. So, you can sheer the shades out for an even more translucent effect. On the other hand, you can go full on with either the warm bronze, or deep burgundy shade, on the eyelids.
Remember, this is Gucci Westman Atelier. Gucci is well known to be a no-makeup-makeup brand. Therefore, the color payoff is going to be more translucent. Therefore, if. you like a more opaque makeup look- then you are better off with another brand, like Nars, Pat McGrath, or Natasha Denona.
Although, now that we are social distancing, staying home, etc. etc. Nobody seems to be wearing a lot of makeup. Sometimes I put it on for the dogs, birds, and iguana. Otherwise, even I don’t wear makeup as I would have in the old days. Yet, once we start to open up, go out, etc. I am sure we’ll all get back to wearing makeup on a regular basis. In the meantime, the no makeup makeup look is not a bad idea. You look like yourself, but only better! And, because it is important to take care of yourself, and feel good about yourself, putting on a little something, something isn’t such a bad idea. In this way, Gucci’s makeup is luxurious, good for your skin, and easy to use. So, try it out . I know you will like it! Especially now!
