Senna Cosmetics - Double Effect Creamline Palette

*Post originally written by Olivia J on The Unknown Beauty Blog. If you see this post elsewhere, it has been stolen!**

If you are looking for a travel friendly cream eyeliner palette with staying power and not to mention colors that are staples in anyone's makeup wardrobe, look no further.  Senna Cosmetics has the perfect palette that measure 2" x 3 1/2" (5.1cm x 8.9cm).  The palette may sound small but the size of the pans are the same as the average small eyeshadow-26mm.  The compact includes a mirror and two brushes: an angled push eyeliner brush and an eyeshadow brush.  They are useful in a pinch but I would suggest using your own brushes.

I got this palette named Sultry from Beauty Story for $19.99 which is half the regular price.  The colors included are  Java-matte dark brown, Orchid-metallic plum, and Onyx-metallic silver black.  On the Senna website, it is sold for $40USD.  You can also buy the colors individually known as Double Effect Creamline Powder Duo for $20USD or just the Creamline (cream liners only) for $18.50USD.

The creams can be used as a liner or as an eyeshadow base color.  The powders can be used alone as smoky eyeshadows or together with the creams to turn them into saturated colors that are budge-proof.  In the picture, I show the swatches in various forms: powder only, creamliner, and cream with powder.  Powder alone I found the Java (brown) to be chalky only because it is matte and the one that is very pigmented.  For a soft eyeliner look, I would just use the brown eyeliner but for drama without the black, top it off with the powder shadow and it will be a very dark brown.  The Orchid (plum) cream is a bit on the sheer side but that is because it is a shimmer.  On the eyes, it could be a bit too sheer and I suggest topping it off with the powder for more color.  The powder itself isn't as smooth as I thought it would be, it kind of skips when used alone but when applied atop the cream; perfect amount of color and the texture is better.  The Onyx (silver-black) is the smoothest one out of the bunch or the easiest to work with in powder and cream form.  Either one would work on its own and together makes a nice long-lasting shimmery eyeliner.

I have found these eyeliners do their job efficiently during the day.  I do suggest a good eyeshadow base for even more staying power.  Oily eyelids should use one definitely to avoid fading and should top off the creams with the corresponding powders. 

All in all, it is a nice compact travel palette and useful for anyone who doesn't want to fuss with a bunch of containers of eyeliner.
