Sona Gasparian of Simply Sona is a gorgeous beauty and fashion blogger that I have followed for quite some time. She’s extremely talented and when I heard that she was coming out with her own palette, I knew I wanted to pick it up. The Persona Identity Eyeshadow Palette is the only product in the Persona Cosmetics line as of now, but I’m hoping that they really expand on the brand because I think she has a good thing going for her! When the palette finally launched on Ulta’s website (it’s sold out on Persona Cosmetics right now), I thought what a perfect time to pick it up as I had a good amount of reward money available to use. Best choice I’ve made in a while!

The packaging is very small and compact. It was a bit smaller than I had imagined it being, but not in a bad way at all. I love the addition of the huge mirror and I always appreciate the names of the colors being placed by the actual eyeshadows and not on an insert. The actual pans of eyeshadows are nicely sized and the eyeshadows are super pigmented and buttery. I was so impressed with the actual application of the shadows and their ability to blend very easily, including the mattes! You won’t be disappointed by these shadows at all.
- Humble (nudish pink matte)
- Sassy (pearl shimmer)
- Goal Digger (true gold shimmer)
- Seductive (rose gold shimmer)
- Charming (caramel brown matte)
- Maverick (taupe matte)
- Bombshell (metallic pewter shimmer)
- Goddess (true bronze shimmer)
- Audacious (burnt brick matte)
- Chic (plum matte)
- Bossy (burgundy shimmer)
- Fearless (dark chocolate matte)
The Persona Identity Eyeshadow Palette has a fantastic assortment of matte and shimmer shades and a good shade range of light to dark colors. The amount of looks you could create with this palette are endless! If you’re a fan of shimmer shades, you will love the pigmentation of these shadows and how they really do pop, even applied on their own. I’d say that the formula of the eyeshadow colors are very pigmented, but aren’t super heavy swatches of color. They are buildable, but don’t let that fool you into thinking they aren’t pigmented- they are!
This is one of those palettes where I actually enjoy using every single color in the palette. For me, that doesn’t happen often. I think that Sona did such an amazing job on this palette and I’ll be the first to admit that it impressed me way more than I thought it would. So many Beauty Bloggers and Vloggers come out with products that can sometimes be a bit disappointing. Not this palette. It’s setting the bar for other brands to make their products better! I know that not everyone is into the warmer shades so I’m hoping that she will create more palettes for more skin tones! Maybe a cooler toned palette?!? I’m excited to see what she does next!
I’m really into this palette right now and I feel like it will make such a great holiday gift for some of my makeup loving family and friends. Plus, it’s under $35.00 so I feel like it’s at a great price point for so many people! Cheers to that!
Does this palette seem like one you’d like to own? Have you tried it yet? Let me know if you have!
