Former RuPaul’s Drag Race queens Alyssa Edwards and Aquaria have brought their creative sides to life with two new breathtaking eyeshadow palettes.
Alyssa Edwards Eyeshadow Palette – Anastasia Beverly Hills
Edwards was well known on RuPaul’s Drag Race for her signature tongue pop and now she is going to be well known in the beauty industry for her first ever palette with Anastasia Beverly Hills. The palette consists of 14 shades of both neutral and bold colors including white, orange, purple, brown, blue, yellow and black just to list a few.
Each of the shades in the palette are named after a significant aspect of Edward’s life. H.O.E (House Of Edwards) is a matte neutral taupey brown and was named after Edwards’ family. In her Netflix series called “Dancing Queen,” Edwards discusses her childhood and the strained relationships she had with her siblings. As she grew older, Edwards created her own “family” which she calls the House of Edwards which is made up of people who she cares for and those who care for her. B.B.D.C is a deep cool aubergine and was inspired by Edward’s dance studio in Texas called Beyond Belief Dance Company.
What is great about this palette is that there is a wide variety of different shades that can be used to create a number of looks. While there are some bold colors for those colorful creative looks, there are also neutral colors that are perfect for day to day looks.
Aquaria x NYX Professional Makeup Color Palette
Aquaria was crowned the winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 10 and was commended for her polished look and unique style. Aquaria has collaborated with NYX for Pride month and released the Aquaria x NYX Professional Makeup Color Palette. If you are looking for a palette that is going to help you create intense looks, then this palette is going to be your new best friend.
This palette includes 10 shades that range from matte to glitter which are inspired by the city, nightlife, and the future. NYX is known for having high quality makeup at an affordable price and this palette only costs $25 dollars which is a great value. I don’t think this palette has eyeshadow that would work very well for day to day looks, but if you wanted to create a look for Pride or for a girls night out then this will be your go-to palette.
If you can’t decide which palette to buy, you might as well buy them both because you could mix and match to create your dream look.
