Our Thoughts:

When HipDot contacted us to post about their new Pride palette in collaboration with the artist Hey Rooney, I was so freakin’ excited that they were kind enough to send me the palette. Not only is this palette supporting a queer artist and representing the community authentically, but the proceeds are going to the Anti-Violence Project Organization. The AVP’s mission AVP empowers lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and HIV-affected communities and allies to end all forms of violence through organizing and education, and supports survivors through counseling and advocacy.

The cover is decked out with stunning holographic foil stamping.
Swatches of the Legendary Palette

This palette is absolutely stunning. I know that’s a give-in with HipDot, but this is the palette that inspired me to create a display shelf in my room for my extra pretty makeup. I gasped when I opened the package, and was further tickled when I realized the palette is built in a way to allow it to stand up. Here’s a photo to show you what I mean:

HipDot also included some adorable stickers with the palette so I put them on my sticker desk along with some other favorites.

These shades are so vibrant, and I’m also glad they didn’t just create a standard rainbow. There is every color of the rainbow, but still some neutrals, golds, and a really cool black shade. These go on easily and you don’t need any special primers to stick them on, because the formula makes them sticky on their own. If you want to ensure they last as long as possible, a glitter primer couldn’t hurt, but it’s not needed. You just pat it on where you want it and it fully coats it to be opaque. You can sort of rub it in to make it more sparse if you want. Here is a look where I used a little bit of Silvia Lining in my inner corner:

As a pressed glitter formula, the glitter particles are very fine and highly concentrated which gives it a great color payoff even without a base underneath. Here’s a bolder look I did with the shades Honey, Honey and Shady Boots:

Overall, I really love this brand. On top of having an amazing product and beautiful packaging, they’ve created a meaningful and extraordinary palette for Pride Month with proceeds going to a great cause. Also, the fact that they collaborated with an artist and a member of the LGBT community makes this palette even more special.
