Jar Packaging:No
Tested on animals:No

Fans of luminous blush won't be disappointed with this stellar, silky pressed-powder option. The richly pigmented colors go on smoothly and evenly, and wear without fading.

This blush comes in an attractive array of shades, and the luminescent finish has a hint of subtle sparkle that makes skin glow. Those with oily skin may not be a big fan of the added shine, but if that's not a concern, this is a beautiful blush to consider (and a beauty bargain, too)!

Pros:
  • Richly pigmented colors offer even, fade-resistant wear.
  • Gorgeous shades.
  • Attractive, luminescent sheen that will make skin glow.
  • Beauty bargain!
Cons:
  • Shiny finish will make oily skin look more oily.

Brand Overview

Palladio-At-A-Glance

Strengths: Impressive powder and liquid foundation options; Rice Paper; Herbal Lip Gloss; Eyeshadow Primer; Baked Blush; Herbal Tinted Lip Balm; company provides complete ingredient lists on their website.

Weaknesses: Poorly made eyeliners, including Liquid Eyeliner and Eye Ink Felt Tip Liquid Eye Liner; highly fragranced eyeshadow quad; potentially irritating lip stain; poorly formulated skin-care products.

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.
