New Amber Dazzle Cosmetics

I love when packages arrive at my door. I can’t wait to see what magical delights await inside. This time, the magic comes in the form of an eyeshadow palette and liquid lipstick from Amber Dazzle. And I have to say, those green eyes featured on the cover of The Jewel Palette drew me in from the moment I unboxed it. I couldn’t wait to dive in to this new brand, palette, and liquid lipstick.

About Amber Dazzle

Amber Dazzle is a new brand to me. From what I’ve gathered, they currently only carry a small collection of lashes, lipsticks and glosses, and an eye shadow palette. Though I don’t know much about them, I do like the philosophy behind their products. Amber Dazzle is about helping “your inner creativity shine.” It’s what makeup should be; a way of expressing yourself.

Matte Liquid Lipsticks

The brand was kind enough to send me one of their Matte Liquid Lipsticks, $20, in Crush. Crush is the perfect nude to pair with their Jewel Palette. Like a lot of liquid lipsticks formulas these days, it has a nice vanilla cupcake scent. It’s not too overpowering, so if you’re sensitive to fragrance it won’t bother you.

 Though I can’t speak for the entire line of Amber Dazzle liquid lipsticks, I do find that there are pros and cons to Crush. The doe foot applicator makes application smooth and easy. Within one to two swipes, you can achieve that perfect opaque look, without streaking.

However, I didn’t find the formula all that comfortable. It wasn’t extremely drying but I did wish I had applied lip balm prior to application. The lipstick is long-wearing as long as you don’t eat or drink. Once you do either, or wipe your mouth, it rubs off in the center. So you will need to re-apply it in order to keep a seamless look.

The Jewel Palette

The Jewel Palette, $55, is the first eyeshadow palette from Amber Dazzle. It features 18 jewel toned inspired shadows. There are two glitter shadows, nine shimmer, and seven mattes. There is a nice range of neutrals and bold colors, which allow you to create a variety of looks. Though it is intended to be more about glamour than every day neutral, which I personally like.

I tested the shadows out using both primer and no primer and found the results to be similar. I did have a tiny bit of creasing without primer but nothing that was very noticeable.

The shadows do blend and build very nicely. They also all have decent staying power, with the exception of Black Agate. When I used it as a “liner” on both my top and bottom lashes, it wore off within a few hours.  I was impressed by Gold and Goddess, the glitter shadows, Though I did experience some fall out, most of the glitter stayed on my lids. And the glitter that did stick to my cheeks ended up looking intentional.

I really do love the colors in this palette and how the change my eye color. The combination of Emerald/Tourmaline, Amber, Muse, Goddess, Ciara, and Cleopatra give my eyes a nice greenish/blue. While the Sapphire, Athena, Cleopatra, Iris, and Gold turn them an icy blue.

Amber Dazzle Look

Overall:  I do think the Amber Dazzle Matte Liquid Lipstick and Jewel Palette are priced a little high. However, they are pretty competitive amongst other indie and mainstream brands. If I was going to choose between the two products I tried, I would recommend the Jewel Palette. The shadows tell a lovely color story and the formula is easy to work with and long lasting. I’m curious to see how the brand evolves in the future.

Comments

  1. I like these colors so natural and mat for the lips, and the colors of the palette seem imprinted.

  2. Although some of the shades in the palette would be too bright for me, I was blown away at how cool the blue looked on you. But the look that you are wearing in the full face photo is absolutely gorgeous on you. I guess Amber Dazzle at $55 is priced around the cost of an ABH palette?

  3. Susan Quackenbush says

    The Jewel Palette has some great shades and sure looks pretty on you.

  4. I have a lip product from Amber Dazzle which works if my lips are exfoliated first. The color is really a pretty one. It is so interesting how the shadows make your eye color look different depending on the shade.

  5. Jen Mathews says

    Such a pretty eyeshadow palette! I am loving all the warm tones, will definitely need to get one for myself!

  14. Lisa Marie Heath says

    I really love the palette, but I don’t think the lipstick would be for me if you found it drying. I have dry lips – so it would just accentuate the lines and dryness (and probably add to the issue)
