Physicians Formula Butter Eyeshadow Palette – Review + Swatches
Happy Monday loves! Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! Today I’m excited to be sharing a full review of the new Physicians Formula Butter Eyeshadow Palettes. You might remember I first shared a sneak peek at them in my Soft + Romantic Makeup Tutorial earlier this year, and right off the bat I was really impressed.
But as with all the makeup products that I use, I like to use them for a little bit of time so I can give the most accurate review of them as possible. So today we’re diving deep into the new Physicians Formula Butter Palette, including pros, cons, swatches of both eyeshadow palettes, and overall whether or not I think they’re worth purchasing.
Physicians Formula Butter Eyeshadow Palette
Physicians Formula Butter Palette Packaging
The Physicians Formula Butter Palette features a beautiful clear and holographic case with tropical leaves – perfect for spring and summer. Currently the PF butter palette comes in two different palettes including Tropical Days and Sultry Nights. Each of the palettes feature 12 shades each in a range of matte, shimmer, and metallic shades. They are sectioned off into three quads for easy eyeshadow creations. Each palette also includes a dual- ended sponge brush applicator.
Physicians Formula Butter Palette Formula/Performance
Like the rest of Physicians Formula Butter products, the Physicians Formula Butter Eyeshadow Palette features the exclusive butter blend in each of its eyeshadow shades. This makes for a soft and creamy texture that can be applied wet or dry.
In terms of performance, I found the matte shadows to apply best with a short, stiff brush like this one, and the shimmer and metallic shades are best applied with your finger. Although a couple of the shades (like the purple and black) were on the drier side, I was impressed with the pigmentation of several of the brown matte shades and found them to be very similar in texture to the butter bronzer (which is my holy-grail!). I also have to say the shimmer shades were my favorite and they looked beautiful on the eyelid.
Physicians Formula Butter Palette – Pros/Cons/Overall Thoughts
Overall, both palettes are very pretty and include a great range of eyeshadow shades and finishes. Although I think the Tropical Days Butter Eyeshadow Palette is more for spring/summer, and the Sultry Nights palette is great for year-round, I really can’t pick a favorite because they both have beautiful shades in them.
Pros: The palettes are the perfect size and the packaging is very well made – perfect for traveling. The Butter Blend formula in many of the matte shades is very similar to the Butter Bronzer and has wonderful velvet-soft, rich pigmentation. I also love the quad setup in the palettes that makes it easy for makeup beginners to know what shades compliment each other best.
Cons: There are a few inconsistencies among the formulas. A few of the darker matte shades are drier, making blending a little difficult, and a couple of the shades are very faint. I also wish the sponge applicator was a brush instead (personal preference).
At the end of the day I really do like these palettes and to be Physicians Formula’s first big eyeshadow palette release, I think they did a great job! If there’s one thing I love about Physicians Formula, it’s that they’re constantly making improvements to their formulas and really listening to their customers so I’m excited to see what’s next from them. With their amazing Butter Blend formula, I think they’re a total force to be reckoned with! 😉
If you’re looking for a fun, affordable eyeshadow palette for summer definitely pick up a Physicians Formula Butter Palette and give them a try!
