Byredo Holiday 2021 Eyeshadow Palette Swatches

Byredo launched two, limited edition palettes for the holiday season that drew my eye, so I caved and decided to give them a try. Each palette contains a glitter shade, which seems to be using rayon, the first ingredient used in Bio-glitter, which is plastic-free and supposed to be biodegradable, though I didn’t see any specific callout from the brand with respect to being plastic-free/bio-glitter on their site so I’m just making a possible deduction based on similarity between ingredient lists (including the rayon but also the additional ingredients that overlap, like glycerin, water, and urea). Here are swatches…

Metal Boots In The Snow is a beautiful palette and I really like the color story. I’m not a fan of the glitter (if I want pressed glitter I have plenty of singles I can reach for – which I rarely do) and as this is already out of my price ranged I won’t be buying. But wow those other four shades look rich and just gorgeous. If only that glitter was some kind of super metallic or even a crazy sparkly shade I’d put it on my wish list. Heck, a multichrome and I’d be in at the current price because I know multichromes are expensive.

I am very drawn to Fetes Noires! But I am thinking I might be able to dupe the four non-glitter shades and then use a sparkly black shadow like PMG Noir Moon in place of the glitter. Because nearly every eyeshadow palette I own has a black, I probably have adequate dupes for the non-glitter shades. But the palette is beautiful!

I’d like to see more brands do this sort of color scheme for holiday launches — these shades just scream “elegant New Year’s Eve soiree” (note, I’ve never attended an elegant NYE bash in my life, but a gal can dream). I do wish there was a little more color variety in Fetes Noires.

I have both and been enjoying them a lot. The glitter is tricky but i hadn’t nothing like it in my collection, and the result over the lid as a topper was very beautiful and unique.

I quite like the Boots in the Snow palette, but wished it contained the Mysteres shade instead of one of the silvery numbers. As to the inclusion of the glitter – be it plastic or biodegrable whatever, I just don’t think it’s a good idea in an eyeshadow palette when you can put in a shimmer number that is definitely eye safe.

I really like how both of these palettes look! The black one Fetes Noires is so sexy for a sultry smokey eye look. Also like Metal Boots in Snow color story.But I can dupe that one. Don’t have a deep dark eye shadow palette yet, may pick this one up. I have Byredo’s large eye shadow and love it!
