Dominique Cosmetics came out with their second eyeshadow palette called Lemonade. Which you know you’re on the right side of trends when you spend months creating something and another major brand comes out with a palette with the same theme around the exact same time. So I was really curious to try this palette especially after the Late Palette as I loved the formula from that palette. And like the Latte Palette, this one was $42 and currently only available on DominiqueCosmetics.com.
Lemonade is a bright fun punch of pops of color and a lot of glam. Extremely blendable and creamy so you can create everything from fresh soft looks to dramatic eyes for a hot summer night out. Each shade is smooth and buttery in texture that glides on for intense color payoff. Includes 4 richly pigmented soft matte shades and 6 ultra creamy sparkling shades curated for all skin tones, eye color and artistry skills.
- Lemon Soda: Vibrant Medium Yellow Shimmer
- Pink Lemonade: Bubble Gum Pink with a gold shift
- Nude Tea: Warm peach with a matte finish
- Peach: Warm Peach foil
- Cucumber: Cool toned mint green foil
- Mango: Warm Yellow Mustard with a matte finish
- Sweet Tea: Vibrant warm orange brown with a matte finish
- Chai Tea: Plum brown with cool undertones and a matte finish
- Strawberry: Dark pink shimmer with silver flecks
- Blueberry Fizz: Deep indigo shimmer with violet and blue flecks
There are three shades that are similar in this palette compared to the Latte palette. Those being a light peachy cream, a deep burgundy, and a orange brown shade. Though they are not exactly the same so it’s not completely a repeat. And honestly these are staple shades that most people use to create any look.
Now if I had to critic any one aspect of the palette I would have to go for the shades. It’s more of a Summer Drinks palette than just lemonade as there’s more of a variety of shimmery shades than a variety of just pink and yellow tones. But with that being said, there is a good balance between warm and cool tones that can create a variety of looks. While these are more of topper or frosted shades, they aren’t something I already have in my collection. So I appreciate that as I can mix this palette with others that I already own. Plus for someone just getting into colorful makeup, this is a good palette to start stepping out of the box with. Though it is $42, so it’s a little bit more up there in price compared to say the Yes, Please palette from ColourPop that has yellows and orange tones that I associate more so with lemonade compared to purple, green, and blue like you can find in this palette.
Going into the formula, I love how smooth the pigment is and they blend out like butter on the eyes. And you can create gorgeous looks out of this palette. Here is just one of the looks I created using this palette:
