Poppy Picnic is a limited edition palette featuring 6 eyeshadows and one blush.
The packaging is lovely and very well-made. It snaps shut without popping open and feels quite heavy and solid. No cheap packaging here.
It comes with a handy dandy tutorial card for those who need a push in the right direction.
From the left column downward, then the right column downward:
Summer Breeze, Sweet Tea, Ice Cream Cone, Glisten blush, Barefoot in the Grass, Peach Poppy, Picnic Basket.
Top to bottom:
Ice Cream Cone, Sweet Tea, Summer Breeze.
Ice Cream Cone is a very dark espresso brown.
Sweet Tea is a neutral tan.
Summer Breeze is a light cream shades.
Glisten is a shimmery coral-pink.
Top to bottom:
Barefoot in the Grass, Peach Poppy, Picnic Basket.
Barefoot in the Grass is a soft beige that is not too cool or warm.
Peach Poppy is a very soft peach. It has no pink tones.
Picnic Basket is a dark chocolate shade.
The eyeshadows go on very smoothly and offer good pigmentation. I use them with a primer, and it lasts all day. My one complaint is that this palette is not warm-toned enough for my skintone. I think this would be better for a lighter skinned person. The blush I could have done without. It’s very sheer, glittery and fades within 3 hours.
I was a little surprised to see Temptalia give it a C+ (which is actually not a failing grade). I am rating it higher because I think the eyeshadows make it a worthwhile purchase.
Pros: Good eyeshadows, nice packaging, nice execution of packaging design.
Cons: Blush is not great, could use warmer tones.
