Danessa Myricks Groundwork Palette ($65.00) is a new, permanent palette that features eight pomade/powder duos that are designed to be multi-tasking so that they can be used on face, eyes, brows, and lips. The brand has acknowledged that some of the pomade shades in the palette have “surface crystallization, which is a common phenomenon with pomade formula types,” which “does not effect the safety or performance.” This is the white bits shown on some shades.

I have had issues with the palette and getting pigmentation/blendability out of a lot of the pomade shades, and I’m going to give it a few more tries. My experience seems fairly different from a lot of other people, both consumers and influencers (that I trust).

I’ve found that I prefer using synthetic brushes with the putty/pomade formula more than my goat hair brushes. That being said I also find the lighter shades easier to pick up than the darker. I’ve not had any issues building up the color though, so I just adjust when needed. I can use ghost hair for darker colors when I want and synthetic for all to start light before building up.
It hasn’t seemed to matter if I use putty over powder or powder over putty either. Both techniques work just as well though the nature of the powder darkens/intensifies the color application.

I don’t know if I have ever tried a pomade or putty type shadow? I would not be opposed but I just don’t see any new shades or anything that would make an addition to my makeup collection. It looks like a lot of warm browns and nudes , of which I have way too many as it is.

It’s either to the quality of your camera or the quality of the palette and how it swatches that I’m going to have to nope out on this one. I hear and see so many reviews regarding her products, but none have really caught my attention enough to make me want to pull the trigger to purchase. Which makes me sad because so many people get so excited about her releases. I’ll just have to wait and see what the future holds.

I love her brand but honestly this maybe a lil too innovative for me because i agree with you, i struggle to get the pigmentation I desire. I do enjoy the formula of the powders and would have preferred that the powder shades were larger and the putty shades smaller. I see a comment here that reccommends synthetic brushes so I’ll definitely try that out overall i like it but dont love it

Totally lol I’m looking at reviews like Is it me? Am I the problem because its really just not my favorite I do like it for lip liner/contour but on the eyes I’m just not sold

I am fairly sure I’d like this – I REALLY miss the CCB from Mac and find i reach for these types of products. I like how they blend in the skin,. But if you’re finding issues with the pomade… And the price likely will be prohibitive in CAD. A lot of products have become priced out of range in this part of the continent. It’s too bad. Seems a waste.

Had this one for a few days before selling it. I liked the powders but not the pomades, with the exception of the black pomade which worked great to line. The pomades were too much work for the face, so I would only use it as an eyeshadow palette. I think the powders should’ve gone into the big pans and the pomades into the small pans. Wouldn’t recommend it, but it’s usable. Long-wearing on the eyes on top of eye primer. Not long-wearing on sparse eyebrows and oily skin.
