While the whole world was busy with mastering the contouring technique, all of a sudden strobing just hit the makeup community like a thunder light. What is strobing?? Strobing is a new makeup technique, where you just highlight your whole face with highlighters and do not draw any dark lines like in contouring. In this post, I will be reviewing one of the strobe palettes available in India. It is the FREEDOM MAKEUP PRO STROBE PALETTE. It is a powder based palette with both the strobing and the contouring shades.
“THE PRO POWDER STROBE PALETTE CONTAINS EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO FINISH, BRIGHTEN, CONTOUR, AND HIGHLIGHT YOUR SKIN. INCLUDES: 2 MATTE HIGHLIGHTERS, 1 SHIMMER HIGHLIGHTER, 3 MATTE CONTOURS, 1 PRO STROBE BRUSH.”
PRICE: INR 1750
WHERE CAN WE GET IT: I picked this from FLIPKART for 1750 bucks. This palette is also available in Amazon, Nykaa and the official website as well(but be careful about the shipping charges when buying on official site).
PACKAGING: Lets talk about the packaging first. It comes in a cardboard box with every minute detail of how to get the look and the ingredients.Opening the box, it has two separate sections, one side opens for the palette and the other side opens up with a contour brush in it. The palette comes in a sleek and sturdy glossy black plastic case, which is sleek and professional. It has a full sized mirror which is more than enough to do your makeup on the go. The powder pans are separated with a spongy, rubbery/leathery material.
I love the way of the packaging. I love the idea of each thing having its own room, so that the brush do not get messed up while shipping. It is absolutely a travel friendly palette.
SHADES: Talking about the shades, the palette has a total of 6 shades. On the top we have 3 shades, 2 of them being matte which can be used to set the under eye concealor and 1 shade being a silvery pearly highlighter shade. In the bottom row we have 3 matte contour shades- 1 cool toned brown, 1 deep brown and 1 mid toned brown.
BRUSH: I hardly had any special/particular contour brush for my contouring. And thanks to this Freedom Pro palette that it comes with a flat top contour brush. It is hardly the size of my palm. The brush is super soft and picks up the product well and also glides on the face well.
Here are the swatches of the shades in the palette.
Overall, I think this palette is a bomb. It can be used for contouring, highlighting, strobing and also for just bronzing. I absolutely love this pro strobe palette and have been using it for my chiseled looks.
