A while back, Glamourbox launched the Eye Shadow Series of Eye of Horus Cosmetics, a brand from Australia that uses ancient Egpytian formulas and plant-based ingredients to develop a range of eye makeup products suitable for sensitive eyes, including my favorite Dual Brow Perfect in Husk.
The eye shadow palettes come in four variants: Isis Sun Goddess (a fusion of gold and other shimmering metallic shades), Sheba Mystical Goddess (a trio of deep plum, pink, and white), Maat Dark Temptress (Pinkoolaid‘s favorite that comes in velvety rich matte chocolate-y shades), and Sekhmet Smokey Goddess (a dramatic blend of charcoal, steel, and grey to create the perfect smokey eye).
Though smokey eye isn’t exactly one of my go-to looks, I was immediately attracted to the Sekhmet Smokey Goddess Shadow Palette because it just seemed like a pretty thing to add to my makeup train case. I also used it once during the Eye of Horus Coffee and Calligraphy event itself, and I loved how it made my eyes look sultry, especially when paired with the Goddess Pencils in Smokey Eye and Bronze Amulet.

I decided to swatch the Sekhmet Smokey Goddess Palette so that you guys can see up close how it looks. It’s evident that the quality of the product is superior to most eye shadows, especially because they’re Italian-baked. You can use the eye shadow palette in two ways: dry or wet. Though it’s pigmented enough when used dry, I prefer wetting my eye shadow brush and dipping it on the palette to create a darker and more dramatic effect.
I guess the only reason some people are discouraged to get the palette is that it’s Php 1,350, which is pricey for an eye shadow palette that contains only three shades. But they’re really gorgeous (I honestly intend to collect all four), and they’re currently on sale at 20% off at the Glamourbox online boutique so I suggest to take advantage of the promo!
