My “Grease” Inspired Palette

A brand called Sola Look is releasing a Grease inspired palette called the “Pink Ladies” palette. I was planning to buy it because I LOVE Grease but then I saw what it actually looks like… It’s $40.00 for ten eyeshadows that are all shimmers and the colors just don’t look like Grease to me. Jen Luvs Reviews, a Youtuber that I really trust, reviewed the palette and not only does it not look impressive, it doesn’t perform well either. So, after all of this I decided to create my own Grease inspired palette.

I was going to buy a bunch of singles but I ended up just using shades from three palettes I already own. I did seven mattes and seven shimmer/satin shades. The palettes I used are all from Coastal Scents. They are the Joli Colibri, Jungle Roar and Charlie Girl. At full price these palettes are $15.00 but they frequently go on sale for as low as $5.00. However, even if you bought all three at full price that’s only $5.00 more than the Sola Look palette for WAY more eyeshadows.

I wanted something fun and colorful with a few darker shades. When I think of Grease I think of pink, black and blue so that’s the majority of what I chose. The orange shade is slightly random but I just thought it fit well with the others. I took pictures of each individual shadow so I’m going to put those below. I even named them because if I was going to design a Grease themed palette, I was going to go all out 🙂

That’s my version of the Grease palette! I’m actually really excited to put together some looks using these shades. I would love to know what you think! What do you like and dislike about my palette? What shades would you have chosen? Thanks for reading and have a great day!
