Fenty Beauty Galaxy Collection Eyeshadow Palette Description, First Impression + Arm Swatches
Fenty Beauty recently launched a limited edition, Galaxy collection and today, I am going to be talking about and arm swatching the Galaxy Palette. This is the first post of many on this palette, and after this I will begin working on an eye swatch and FULL review and eyeshadow look post/s.

The Fenty Beauty Galaxy Eyeshadow Palette contains 14 shades of ALL shimmery and glittery eyeshadows. Each shade contains 1.4 grams (0.04 ounces) of product, giving the palette a total of 19.6 grams (0.56 ounces) of product. The palette has a shelf life of 9 months and is made in Canada.
As I said, all of the eyeshadows have a shimmery finish and there are no matte eyeshadows in the palette at all. The eyeshadows also contain a lot of glitter, although they are not pure glitter shadows, they are very shimmery based, glittery shadows. Each shade has a different ratio of glitter, meaning that some shades are more glittery and more sheer than others, and vice versa.
This is only my arm swatch and introduction post so I really can't comment on performance yet (I do this in my full review posts), but I have tried one shade and it was beautiful!! Of-course, I HAD to try the light shimmery blue shade in the palette called Cosmic Ocean. It is a sheer based glitter shade, and OMG, it looks so beautiful all over the lid. I can say that I am very impressed upon my first use of the palette.
Other than that, the packaging is super sleek, reflective and halographic. The front is a plastic type glass material, and this coupled with how reflective and glossy the finish is, means that you will get fingerprints ALL over the palette. This doesn't worry me at all because when I'm done with products and especially palettes, they tend to look beaten up anyway and I really don't care after I get my first product pictures, but if you are a neat freak this could annoy you, so beware! The good thing is you can wipe any makeup off the surface of the packaging so easy because the material is so glossy.
As I said, I am super impressed with this palette, but I can't really say much because I have to get in and dig right into it. In my full review/look posts, I swatch EVERY shade on my eyes and talk about each eyeshadow in-depth. I also rank each eyeshadow, and generally just pick apart the palette and give you all the information. Along with this, I will be posting full eyeshadow looks that I do with this palette, so expect to see more of this beauty!!
