This non-sticky lip gloss imparts a noticeable amount of color, complete with micronized shimmer particles. The silky texture immediately smoothes lips, the formula contains antioxidants for additional benefits, and it comes in fairly stable packaging to keep those ingredients effective during use.
There are several attractive pink, coral, and nude shades, but the orange-beige colors are not recommended because they tend to make lips look washed out and drab. Those looking for a colorless gloss will appreciate the See Thru shade!
Note: The small amount of fragrance (listed as "flavor") isn't cause for concern in terms of being irritating.
- Inexpensive yet well-formulated.
- Non-sticky texture.
- Silky, moisturizing formula.
- Enriched with antioxidants.
- Orange-beige colors make lips look drab.
Palladio started as a small, Florida-based brand, and has been slowly carving out its niche at well-known beauty supply stores in North America and abroad through a growing network of resellers. The brand has attracted consumer interest because it's affordable and offers high-quality products.
One of the other draws is their brand tagline: "herbal & vitamin enriched cosmetics." Surprisingly, many Palladio products lack the ingredients to back up their herbal claim, and several of the products that do contain plants and vitamins have packaging that won't keep them stable during use, something that's true for lots of makeups that boast of antioxidant content. Still, this brand does have several products with impressive amounts of antioxidants, including a liquid foundation, eyeshadow primer, and lip gloss in decent packaging that will help keep the ingredients stable.
While the enticing herbal/vitamin claim isn't justified by all their products, many Palladio makeup products are worth checking out, and the prices are great, but stay away from the skin-care products because they are problematic, for several reasons, as you will see in our reviews. The most impressive products are the foundations and the tinted Rice Paper. The only makeup missteps are the liquid eyeliners, whose performance pales in comparison to comparably priced drugstore options.
In the United States, United Kingdom, and Mexico, Palladio is widely available at Sally Beauty. Palladio products also are available abroad through reseller websites, which are listed in the FAQ section of Palladio’s U.S. website.
