Skinn Cosmetics Seduction Luxe Eye Shadow Palette Review


Dimitri James founded Skinn Cosmetics in 2002, after a long career in the cosmetics industry.  His goal was to create high quality products while keeping them affordable.  To that end, the packaging is basic and no-fuss.

Dark, smoky shadows, thick smudged liner and bold lashes are undeniable statement looks, but sometimes the best statement for your eyes is to bring out their natural beauty. Lucky for us, celebrity makeup artist Dimitri James has made it easy to achieve this timeless, effortless look with Skinn Cosmetics new Luxe Premier Eyeshadows in Seduction ($32).

Natural doesn’t have to mean boring. These neutral yet seductive shades give your look an appealing feminine  confidence. The palette contains 12 shadows with anti-aging actives, anti-oxidants and collagen-boosting peptides  to the eyelids. They are talc-free so even over 40 lined or crepey eyes can wear them! 



There are some matte and some shimmer shades in the palette–all are smooth, blend easily and stay put. Neutral lovers will rejoice with the Seduction palette–it will take you from day to night easily and can be used for contouring eyes too.  The lighter shades really bring eyes forward and make them pop, the darker shades work well for adding drama. For my blue eyes, the peachy and taupe shadows are fab, but these shades will flatter any eye color.

Tips from Dimitri:

“The questions I’m asked most often by my clients is, ‘how can I create an updated version of that gorgeous nude-eye look” James says, “Creating the timeless look requires changing up neutral neutral colors…so get creative!”

  • Try applying a taupe shadow across the upper eyelid and a nude shadow under the lower lash line using the included applicator or professional shadow brushes.
  • Finish with an ivory shade under the brow bone to make eyes really pop
  • Also try applying wet to impart a more intense, brilliant color that will really make eyes sparkle.

The Seduction palette isn’t up on the Skinn website yet, but  ShopNBC  has a great deal on this eyeshadow palette plus a mascara and teal eyeliner for only $38–the palette alone retails for $32!

Bottom Line: Quality eyeshadows that are affordable and perform well.
