A few months ago I was contacted by Alter Ego and asked if I wanted to take a test drive of their new (soon to be released) Temptress Palette. I have never heard of the brand before and I was absolutely intrigued, since the palette was said to be a dupe of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry Palette. Since then, I have been using the palette and trying it out. Today, I’m going to be sharing with you my thoughts and swatches of the Alter Ego Temptress Palette. Do I like it? You’ll have to read on to see!
About The Alter Ego Temptress Palette
The Alter Ego Temptress Palette retails for $16.00. It comes with 14 gorgeously pigmented shades. I also got two brushes, a large shader brush and a blender brush. The Temptress palette launched in January of this year and is pretty much a perfect dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry Palette. I don’t have the Sultry palette to compare for you, but after looking at it in person and comparing with my Temptress palette, I’m absolutely swooning over the similarities and quality.
The Temptress Palette features a mix of matte and metallic shades in a range of nude, golden and bronze type tones. The palette is Cruelty-free and paraben-free. It’s made in the PRC but is distributed and sold in the United States. The palette is a total steal for the quality and awesomeness you receive.

My Overall Thoughts
The shades are very pigmented. But, what I love about them is that they are not powdery like you’d expect from a cheaper, more affordable palette. The shadows are creamy, but not so buttery that it makes a mess. I also love that there is minimal to little fallout from the shadows. I can grab for this palette on a daily and use it on my lids for a pop of color or an everyday look. I have been wanting to purchase the ABH Sultry Palette and missed when it was on sale, so I decided it wasn’t for me. But, having this palette in my hands, I am not missing the Sultry palette at all.

I have been loving how great this palette blends on my mature eyelids. I’m just absolutely amazed with the quality of this product. I am also loving that Alter Ego has supreme customer service as they have been answering all my questions. I have already had several family members order this palette after I shared my thoughts with them. They are loving it as much as I am.
So, what about you? Do you think this would be a palette you’d be interested in checking out for yourself? I highly suggest trying it out. For the price point, it can’t be beat. And, you get a luxury and high-end product feel without the price point.
