A majestically beautiful palette of vivid, metallic and matte shades.
I stumbled upon this palette whilst on Instagram, and I couldn’t believe the colours and how vivid they were – so I had to buy it and test it for myself. And I’m so glad I did.
OPV Beauty based this palette on inspiration from the Nigerian goddess of Yoruba, the protector of women, love, and healing. This lead to the creation of twelve oceanic shades ranging from a deep crimson red, Eko, to a deep blue, Oba.
The palette boasts a healthy amount of matte and foil shades to help add dimension and light to your eye makeup. The shadows are build-able, with good colour pay off, and blend well allowing for creating combination shades.
The foils apply easy with fingers, and via wet or dry flat brushes to help create intensity desired. My personal favourites are Ayao, a pale pink gold reflects which when applied is a wonderful rose gold appearance, and Oko, a deep foiled forest green. The diversity of the shades make this a great palette to experiment with, and the quality is superb with little fallout.
Bottom Line: A delicious array of colours to create dramatic foiled looks as well a matte masterpieces.
