Welcome Home Palladio!

It was more than a decade ago when I used to roam around Beauty Bar stores memorizing each brand, learning each makeup product just because I was just starting out to build my makeup kit for makeup school.  

The first product that was highly recommended to me by the SA was Palladio Rice Powder and I actually bought it and used them on my first few clients.  That goes on top of my head whenever I hear the brand Palladio --- Rice Powder.  And I believe you have the same thoughts too right?

Today, Palladio is back in the Philippines (bigger and better my friends!) and I'm glad to attend the launch because Palladio Beauty Group goes beyond just the makers of Rice Powder. 

"The Palladio Beauty Group is internationally recognized as a leading manufacturer of herbal and vitamin enriched color cosmetics and skincare products.  Their products are created for women with all types of skin who desire to look beautiful and radiant while protecting their skin from the signs of aging.  From herbal and vitamin enriched formulations that contain beneficial ingredients such as Ginseng, Green Tea, Gingko Biloba, Vitamin E an dnatural humectants and skin soothers such as Aloe Vera and Chamomile." 
If that statement didn't let you think outside of the Palladio=Rice Powder.  Well, I have photos to prove!

Palladio Cosmetics includes diverse selection of beauty products and trust me when I say, I was overwhelmed during the launch and I don't get easily overwhelmed!

Let me categorize them for you because I'm a nerd that way!

Palladio Wet & Dry Foundation
Available in 8 shades!
(Ivory, Porcelein, Vanilla, Sandy Beige, 
Honey, Caramel, In the Buff and Golden Beige)

The Mosaic powders are a winner in my dictionary, they come in 4 palettes (Desert Rose, Spice, Pink Truffle and Sun Kissed).  Sun kissed is my favorite as I always like bronzer/blush.

There are 3 Rice Powder shades to choose from: Translucent, Natural or Warm Beige.  Same as Rice Paper, they also come in 3 shades similar to the Rice powder.

The Baked Bronzers and Matte Bronzers also caught my attention during the launch because of the wide range of shades!  I mean you usually get just 1 or 2 Bronzer shades in other brands so I'm happy that the Baked Bronzers come in 4 shades (Pacific Tan, Atlantic Tan, Caribbean Tan and Illuminating Tan).

Illuminating tan is my favorite and I think girls with fair complexion will feel the same.

As for Matte Blush, there are 8 shades to choose from, 4 old ones and 4 new ones that were brought here just in time for the launch.  (Berry Pink, Bayberry, Peach Ice, Toasted Apricot, Chic, Tipsy, Poised and Velvetine).

6 Stick Concealers
(Ivory, Light, Medium, Dark, Yellow and Green)
Tried this on my friend Ginger and found these have light to medium coverage and are non-drying and hydrating.  If you need more coverage, you can opt for their Liquid Concealers.

Eye Shadow Primer (Php450.00)
Crushed Metallic Shadow (Php425.00)
Matte Shadow Duo (Php400.00)

Curls Rule! Curling (Php550.00)
Aqua Force Waterproof + Defining (Php550.00)

These Matte Shadows are worth checking out.  Total of 10 shades.
My favorite is City Lights, At the Opera, Cityscape, Opening Night and 5th Avenue 
which are all on the browns, taupe side.

If you prefer more color choices in one product and wants a mixture of texture (matte, shimmers and velvet), go for Palladio Eye Shadow Quads.  There are a total of 6 quads and they also have Silk FX Eye Shadow Palette which has 5 shades in a palette which reminded me so much of my Kate Tokyo Eyeshadow palettes.

If you want to explore on more eyeshadow shades, go for Crushed Metallic Shadows which are highly pigmented and crazy metallic!  12 single pan shades are available for you to play around with.

I am excited to try their brow products too because they have a wide range from pencils to brow mascaras and a whole lot more!

I also took note on the various liner crayons and kajal liners in various shades.  I am leaning towards Waterproof Eyeliner because our weather calls for waterproof anytime of the day.

And just when you thought I'm done, the wide collection of LIP products made me dizzier (in a good way!)

Velvet Matte Cream Lip Color (Php400.00)
Dreamy Matte Lip Color (Php400.00)
Lipstick (Php450.00)
Velvet Matte Metallic Cream Lip Color (Php450.00)

Lip Stain (Php400.00)
Waterproof Lip Liner (Php350.00)
Wooden Lip Liner Pencil (Php350.00)
Precision Lip Liner (Php350.00)

Plump N' Shine Plumping Lip glosses are perfect for users with thin, undefined lips.  Not for me as I have full lips!

These Pop Shine has medium pigmentation and is a mix between a lipstick and lipbalm.

More hydrating lip products from Tinted lip balms to my favorite 
High Intensity Lip Balms because the shades are nice for daily use.

And if you are a type of girl who prefer highly pigmented lip colors, check these out!

My favorite out of all the lip products showcased during the event are the Butter Me Up ! Sheer Color Balm.  They come in 8 cool shades and are perfect for daily use!

I can't really mention and post everything I saw during the event but I'll try my best to review some of my favorite Palladio products one post at a time!  I've written down almost all the products with their corresponding SRP for your reference because I want to let you girls know they are not expensive for the quality you get!
