1 Palette, 2 Looks: Australis GRLBOSS Eyeshadow Palette

Australis GRLBOSS Eyeshadow Palette Review - Marisa Robinson Beauty

I am a huge fan of the Australis GRLBOSS Lip range so when they released an eyeshadow palette I knew I had to have it and put it to the test!

In this blog post I share two eye looks I created using shadows from the Australis GRLBOSS Eyeshadow Palette.

Before I talk about the looks I want to talk about the shadows. For a drugstore palette I have never been so impressed with pigmentation and colour pay off. Some of the shadows had a bit of fall out which is why it is always important to tap off any access before applying to your eye but it wasn’t anything major. I always have some clean tissues on my desk which I tap excess shadow onto and then if I require more of the colour I just dip into that instead of going back into the palette - less waste and you can work with smaller amounts of colour.

The shadows were also super easy to blend out. I used some of my favourite Zoeva brushes which certainly helps but I didn’t find that any of the colours grabbed onto my skin it was a nice clean blend.

The palette is Cruelty Free, Vegan Friendly and has a combination of matte and shimmer shades which was ideal for creating this halo eyeshadow look. The shimmers worked beautifully in the centre of the lid and for the inner corner highlights.

Below is a breakdown of the shades I used to create each look:

LOOK 1: PURPLE/BLUE

This look (below) was all about bold pops of colour and the purples, mauves and blue shades really brought this look to life. The stars on the palette indicate which colours I used to get the look.

• Base Shade: I used the neutral shadow in the top left of the palette for my base and to help the other shadows blend out nicely.
• Transition Shade: light mauve shade, 2nd shadow on the 3rd row.
• Crease Shade: I mixed the two darker purple shades, 1st shadow on the 3rd and 4th row, to take through the crease, inner and outer corner.
• Lid Shade: I packed on the pearlescent shade in the top right corner of the palette using my finger to create more intensity.
• Inner Corner Shade: to highlight the inner corner of my eye I used the pearlescent shade in the top right corner of the palette.
• Lower Lash Line: I smoked out the light blue shadow, 3rd shadow on the 4th row, before applying the darker blue over the top and blending both together.

LOOK 2: BROWN/BRONZE

The bronzy, brown look (below) was a warmer neutral look which ended up being my fave of the two! The stars on the palette indicate which colours I used to get the look.

• Transition Shade: light brown shade, 4th shadow on the 3rd row.
• Crease Shade: I mixed the two darker brown shades, 5th shadow on 3rd row and 4th shadow on the 4th row, to take through the crease, inner and outer corner.
• Lid Shade: I packed on the rose gold shimmer shade, 3rd shadow on the 3rd row, on the centre of my lid using my fingertip. I also used a tiny amount of the black shadow, bottom right corner, in the outer corner to add some depth.
• Inner Corner Shade: to highlight the inner corner of my eye I used the rose gold shimmer shade, 3rd shadow on the 3rd row.
• Lower Lash Line: I smoked out the brown shadow, 5th shadow on the 3rd row, and also applied a small amount of the black shadow close to my lower lashes.

For the rest of the look I also used the Australis High Life Strobe powders in ‘’Glimmer and ‘Ignite’ and their Velvet Demi Matte Lip Cream in the shade ‘Enable’.


The Australis GRLBOSS Eyeshadow Palette is available on their website and in store and online at Priceline Pharmacies for only $24.95 - which is a steal for a palette this good!

Which look would you wear: Purple or Brown?
