Chi Chi Cosmetics Extravaganza Face Palette

Review & Swatches!

Yay! A New Year has started & it's time to start blogging again!
Before Christmas, Chi Chi Cosmetics released a ton of new products
This Extravaganza Face Palette was just one of the many gift options they had available
And of course, knowing my luck, the palette had sold out everywhere in store..
So I went online & there it was! 
24 Eyeshadows
3 Highlighters
3 Blushes
2 Bronzers 
All for $30aud!
It arrived to NZ in three days & I was able to swatch this baby for us all!
I was blown away by the quality & pigmentation of this entire palette!
Swatches Below 

  This palette includes shadows from their individual eye palettes
 - some Mattes, shimmers, brights, bronzes, nudes & smokeys
 so you get to test out the quality & pigmentation of all their products in one kit!
I only owned the Chi Chi Nudes palette from their shadow range 
and thought this palette was a perfect way to try a lot more of their shadows
 plus some of their face products - blushes, bronzers & the new highlighters
All that for $30aud? I couldn't say no!


First Row
Cream/Off White with slight Sheen

Flesh toned Matte 

Cool toned Light Grey Matte

Cool toned Taupe Brown Matte

Neutral mid-tone Brown Matte

Deep Purple Brown Matte

These shades were hard to swatch, not the softest shadows but they were easier to blend with brushes

Second Row
Light Pearl Gold Shimmer

Champagne Gold Metallic 

True Gold Metallic

Warm Bronze Brown Metallic

Copper Bronze Metallic

Neutral Deep Bronze Metallic

Every one of these shades swatch like butter, so soft & highly pigmented 

Third Row
Intense Yellow Gold Shimmer

Rose Gold Metallic

Warm Caramel Brown Matte

Red toned Brown Matte 

Apricot with slight Sheen

Bronze Gold Metallic

Another row that swatched like butter, the mattes on this row are softer & more pigmented compared to the first row

Fourth Row
Orange Metallic with Gold Shimmer

Bright Turquoise Blue with slight Shimmer

Medium Bright Purple with Shimmer

Lilac Purple Metallic

Dark Plum Shimmer 

Deep Navy Blue Matte

Considering the bright shades in this row, the pigmentation is definitely there! Just the Aqua Blue was slightly patchy when swatched

Intense Icy Gold Highlight  
Cool toned Champagne Highlight
Deeper Golden Highlight

Sheer Peach Blush with Shimmer
Neutral Pink Blush with Sheen finish
Peachy Pink Blush with Gold shimmer

Tropical Island Bronzer - Neutral toned Bronzer with slight shimmers
Brazilian Beach Bronzer - Slight Warm toned Bronzer with Matte finish

All Stunning face powders & blend beautifully

The Tropical Island Bronzer looks a lot like NARS Laguna bronzer & the bottom blush reminds me of NARS Orgasm blush, also a lot of the shadows are similar to the Urban Decay Naked palettes! 
Some great dupes in this palette!
I definitely think this is worth picking up & adding to your collection, it's worth every penny! 
I would happily pay $60-80 for this palette getting the huge variety of colours, knowing the quality of the powders & seeing the pigmentation. 
Also I totally recommend ordering online off their website, when you sign up for email newsletters you receive a $15 coupon code, which could pay for your shipping, or you get Free Express Shipping to NZ on orders over $75 (and Australia over $50) 
This palette is currently still available, but it is Limited Edition so get it while you can!

I love Chi Chi Cosmetics!

It feels so good to get back in to blogging, 
I can't wait to see what 2016 holds for us Beauty lovers
So many new products in the making!
