I love a good sunset moment on the eyes or red eyeshadow. It reminds me of my favorite color plus the deeper shades just call to me. I miss my Merlot hair on a frequent basis (remind me not to start that up again, I’m extremely tempted at the moment) and this palette has shades that remind me so much of this. Specifically the shades Bahamas and Sangria, especially Sangria. Anyways, I’ve been using this palette for the better part of the last week since reds are more “work-appropriate” than blue and green, so next up in reviewing of Ace Beaute palettes is Scarlet Dusk.
The Scarlet Dusk Palette includes 12 shades for $34.99. The formula is both cruelty free and vegan, meaning that they have the potential to stain your eyes due to the dye included in the pigments. Shades included in the palette are:
- Sunset Rose (matte)- Orange
- Crimson (matte)- Bright Orange
- Shade (matte)- Burnt Orange
- Nocturnal (matte)- Brown
- Aruba (metallic)- Light Orange/Gold
- Hibiscus (metallic)- Orange
- Lotus (matte)- Taupe
- Bahamas (matte)– Berry
- Maui (metallic)– Bubblegum Pink
- Pink Moon (matte)- Pink
- Aurora (metallic)- Berry
- Sangria (matte)- Deep Berry/Burgundy
I really enjoyed this formula, every shade was pigmented and blended effortlessly while staying true to color from what was in the pan. You can truly create a variety of looks using this palette though some of the metallics and mattes look very similar tone wise. Which I don’t mind since it makes the transition between the two really easy. The metallics are also stunning! I do recommend wetting your brush after picking it up from the palette to get the most payoff (usual trick I use for metallics). There also isn’t a lot of kick back in the pans when you’re picking up the shadows. Overall, I really enjoyed this palette and have created several sunset looks to monotone looks though I did not photograph them as my eyes were watery this last week from being dry or I need a new mascara (I’m leaning towards new mascara since my tube is I think at that end of life stage). The eyeshadow did hold up well against this though or as well as anything against salty water can hold up.

Wow those are really nice shades . I love the sangria and the crimson . Its bit more of an intense sunset palette than I was expecting .
Yeah it’s more those deep sunsets rather than the yellow, orange, pink, purple scheme.
It kind of reminds of the fancy tequila drinks lol grenadine and the oranges .
Now that you point it out, it kind of does.
