Texture and Fragrance

The texture is creamy and it has a mild fragrance like that of some local store cosmetics. Some of the eyeshadow glides on smoothly while others are little chalky in nature.


The palette comes inside a cardboard box and after opening it, you will get the palette which has 16 shades in total. It has 11 matte shades and 5 shimmer shades.

Shades of Hilary Rhoda Eyeshadow


The colors in the palette are highly pigmented. You need just one stroke to deposit the color on your lid. As I have told you, some colors are chalky so it will affect the pigmentation of that particular shade also. In particular, the bright yellow shade disappointed me very much. That shade takes so much effort when it comes to depositing that color on the lid.

Hilary Rhoda Mini Eyeshadow Palette Review

My experience with Hilary Rhoda Multicolor Eyeshadow Palette Review | Shade 02

I wanted a matte colorful eyeshadow palette for so long. I was searching for an eyeshadow palette like that but all of them were very expensive. I scrolled through many brands and websites but if you want colorful matte eyeshadow, you need to pay a large amount of money. My first eyeshadow palette was from Hilary Rhoda, so I thought of giving it a try. I think they have discontinued that particular palette.

Hilary Rhoda Eyeshadow

So, I started searching for Hilary Rhoda eyeshadow and I get my eyes on this one. This palette was a perfect choice as it has matte as well as shimmer shades. The pigmentation of the eyeshadows is to die for. Oh my God! each and every shadow is highly pigmented. And the colors of each eyeshadow is very versatile, it has blue, lavender, orange, pink, green and many shades of them. If you want an eyeshadow palette to play around. This would be your perfect pick. 

This eyeshadow palette is a dupe of NYX Ultimate Bight Eyeshadow Palette. That palette retails for Rs. 1725 and you are getting the eyeshadow under Rs. 200. What a steal deal. It has almost the same as the shade range as that of the NYX palette. I have heard mix reviews about that palette so why to spend extra money when you are getting such affordable dupe for that. You can have a look for yourself.

You can create many eyeshadows looks with these. The pan size of each color is very huge. These eyeshadows have no fall off. They blend in very smoothly creating a very beautiful look. This particular eyeshadow palette is available in one more shade. That has many neutral shades, basically, that's a nude palette, if you want a nude palette you can try that one also. It has many shimmer shades and 4 to 5 matte shades.

How I use it?

I am used to doing my eye makeup first, so I prime my eyes by applying a bit of concealer and then set it with a powder. It creates a smooth canvas for the color deposition on my lid. After that, I create my eyeshadow look as I want and then use an eye-liner.

My tip for applying bright eyeshadow 

Do prep your eyes before applying any eyeshadow to get that highly pigmented look. If you don't want to apply concealer all over your lid just apply white eyeshadow on your eyes and then apply that color, it will pop up more and makes your eyes look more beautiful.


  • Super affordable.
  • It has 16 shades; 11 colorful matte shades and 5 shimmer shades.
  • Highly pigmented.
  • Super comfortable on lids.
  • Glides on smoothly.


  • It does not have a mirror (Not a con exactly if you look at the price)
  • Some shades are chalky.


Honestly, I am going to repurchase it when it finishes off completely. And I don't see that it is going to happen as each eyeshadow has a huge pan.
